Cover Story


10 years ago, the image of a futuristic dwelling kitted out with the latest acoustically transparent screen, digital surround sound and Robodog would only appear in movies, particularly to portray a sci-fi scene. These days, however, owning a smart home is no longer an unattainable dream.

With technology evolving at a rapid rate, the converging realities of consumer electronics, broadband networks, digital entertainment and security systems are delivering a mainstream smart-home revolution that was unimaginable a decade ago.

Some years back, mainstream mobile phone brands have started to make their phones compatible with smart devices as a controller. Gary is one of those consumers who were enthusiastic to try on the latest technology especially small gadgets that can improve efficiency in life. He started his experiments by installing and integrating different types of smart devices at home.

“My house became like a concept store where my friends would visit me to experience the latest gadgets that I’ve installed. Many of them were fascinated by these smart devices and sometimes would request my help to install similar systems in their houses,” shared Gary.

One day, a friend of his who is an architectural designer wanted to collaborate with him to use his smart home system for a project. Gary took it as an opportunity and decided to start a business to offer smart home solutions. In 2019, he established LinkUp.

LinkUp provides expertise and integration in applying technology to various use cases – including home automation, entertainment, remote surveillance, home security, smart gardening and digital wellness.

They make Smart Home possible and more affordable to consumers who are seeking technology in making their houses more efficient, safer and cosier. “Nowadays, smart devices are a dominating trend. Although there are many options to explore in the market, our core offering is our end-to-end solution. We provide education and superior customer support to our customers,” Gary explained.

In order to let more people experience the possibilities and capabilities of their technology, LinkUp has set up a Show House in Hartamas, which is fully equipped with LinkUp’s latest smart home system. Customers get to touch every device and can learn how smart home works before they commit to anything.

Within a year, LinkUp has gained trust and support from many customers. This year, they participated in the Selangor Accelerator Programme (SAP) and have won the competition as one of the top five winners.

“Moving forward, we would like to collaborate with property developers to bring the benefits of smart home solutions to more consumers. Our mission is to enrich and empower life by making life smarter, more connected and safer through affordable automation technology,” shared Gary.

LinkUp has joined ZOM-IN.com to collaborate in efforts to empower aspiring youths. Join us now at www.zom-in.com to participate in exciting events coming soon!
