Globe At Home partners with VCDC to bring more connected homes to Filipinos

11:39 AM February 14, 2020

In this day and age, it seems almost impossible to survive without the internet. Wherever you go and whatever tasks you need to do, you would often find yourselves on the world wide web accomplishing work, finding suitable entertainment, or communicating with long-distance friends and relatives. Indeed, “being online” and “staying connected” has many benefits in today’s tech-driven society. 

Now, thanks to the partnership of Globe at Home and Victor Consunji Development Corporation (VCDC), families can continue to stay connected inside the comforts of their own home.

Last February 11, Globe at Home and VCDC solidified their partnership by holding an exclusive media event at M Residences in Acacia Estates, Taguig City, for select VIPs and members of the media.


“We are glad to take the first steps in showcasing the power of connected living for the benefit and appreciation of more Filipino families hand-in-hand with an esteemed property developer like VCDC,” shared Globe VP and Head of Digital Home Barbie Dapul. 

 During this event, the two companies also gave guests an exclusive tour of a modern, connected home, powered by a Globe at Home Fiber plan and intelligent devices.

During the tour, guests witnessed how Globe’s CONNECTED HOME devices helped enable the homeowner to do multiple tasks at once. By using intelligent or IoT (Internet of Things) devices, the homeowner and his or her family members can use their voices to make commands and schedule reminders for their day-to-day activities. They may also use a centralized app to execute tasks like opening the door.  

The Globe CONNECTED HOME Outlets and Multipurpose Sensors, which are also powered by Samsung SmartThings, helped in the automated and remote control of lights and small appliances. And the full HD Cameras that were installed in select areas allowed homeowners to remotely monitor their household 24/7 – giving them the peace of mind that their homes are safe and secure.  

“The rise of faster and more advanced Internet connectivity has also led to more opportunities in using intelligent devices inside the home,” Dapul explained regarding the need for these devices. 

Lastly, the Globe at Home Fiber connection and WiFi hubs installed in the residence ensure stable, high-speed connection all over the house by eliminating dead spots for smooth automation of all devices.
