ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE HOME

A smarter way of living

SUMMARY VIDEO

COMPANY DETAILS

SUMMARY

Aihome is a retailer of innovative personal and home technology products. Founded by two co-founders - Shaw Tan and Chris Ng, in 2018, Aihome offers a range of the latest smart home appliances and automation products for homeowners looking for the newest innovation in smart home products to upgrade their homes.

With a retail space dedicated to providing an optimal smart home experience, Aihome aims to deliver the latest and the most popular smart home appliances, devices and gadgets available in the market for the convenience of our customers and empower the way of life under one roof.

PROBLEM

Programmatic Commerce Generates Passive Revenue

Even though smart home technology is in its infancy, one thing has become clear: consumers are more than willing to delegate routine and repeated purchases of product accessories to their machines. People lead busy lives, and letting a dishwasher order more soap or a coffee maker order more beans saves time.

More impressively, the smart appliance can even complete the transaction without any human input by simply accessing account information. Although these behaviours will need some time to be fully adopted due to security concerns or pure discomfort, they can significantly add to the long list of conveniences offered by the smart home.

SOLUTION
Personalization is Still King

One thing that wi l l remain constant in the future of smart home technologies is that companies must be prepared to create a unique user experience through engaging content and social media. Using data accumulated by a product, more opportunities exist for companies to craft messaging and deliver product and service information specific to the user’s tastes, past purchasing habits, and product usage. Companies can access social network-powered communities that generate positive exper ience feedback and share helpful tips and product recommendations.

Sell an Experience and Continual Value, Not Just One-Off Products

Products are being commoditised daily. Over the past decade, the “X-as-a-Service” model or subscription model has changed the way people buy everything f rom the music they listen to, the movies and sporting events they watch at home and even the apps they use on mobile devices.

It now appears consumers are willing to apply that same model when it comes to making smart home purchases. Rather than simply making a purchase and owning a device until it becomes obsolete or breaks down, they can opt to sign a monthly service agreement that provides for product use and upgrades as smart technology continues to evolve.

This business model provides consumers with the connectivity and technology they are growing to expect and offers services to make family life more secure and comfortable while generating a predictable, monthly revenue stream for businesses.

BUSINESS MODEL

Our business model creates a supply and demand that are mutually reinforced. We are the go to provider of smart products where we not only sell products through our platform but we are also going to be offering franchise opportunities to grow and scale our business.

MARKET

The Malaysian smart home market is expected to exceed US$ 235 Million by 2025.

Smart homes are residences equipped with information and computing technology devices that anticipate and respond to the owner’s requirement effectively and efficiently. There is a growing demand in the Malaysian market for a safe and secure living environment, especially concerning safety functionalities and discrete monitoring for older adults.

In Malaysia, the people aged 65 or over account for around 6.5 percent of the total population. This demographic trend is expected to continue and will significantly influence social and economic structures. Also, the explosive population growth and dynamic shift in urban sprawl, coupled with the economic growth of megacities in the emerging economies, would pose a variety of opportunities for companies operating in the smart home market segment. According to the world meters, in 2018, 77.3% of the Malaysian population lived in an urban area. By 2030, roughly 83.4% of the population is expected to live in urban areas. This creates an enormous opportunity for the smart home market players.

The Malaysia smart home market is driven by factors such as a significantly growing IoT market, cost reduction measures enabled by home automation systems, manufacturers expanding their product portfolios, and the increasing importance of home monitoring from remote locations. With the growing demand for smart home devices, security and privacy breach are also increasing. The issues on privacy and security breach are restraining the growth of the smart home market.

COMPETITION 

We believe that there is no direct competition to be had with any players in Malaysia. We currently hold a strong first-mover advantage. We have prepared and partnered ourselves with several brands and organisations to better position the company to scale faster and more efficiently. 

FUNDING

We will be fundraising through the pitchIN ECF platform. The fund’s raise will primarily be utilised for our business to grow and scale faster and better.

Our fundraising goal for this campaign will be set at MYR 2,200,000 - MYR 3,000,000 in exchange for up to 10% equity.

The Funding received will be used for:-

  1. Business Development

Our Vision

To be the largest Ai Home product manufacturer in the market. We want our customers to experience the home of the future, a home where everyone can aspire to have, in the convenience of a retail space designed to provide an enriching learning experience.
