Smart Home & SS 145-2

Smart homes will one day be a reality and it might not even be something that requires customisation. As part of the Smart Nation initiative, Smart Towns is one of the areas that the Singapore government is looking into. These Smart Towns will include building smart estates: homes with smart technology built into the estates. 

As with all new technology, the only way that we can use them with minimised risk is to enforce regulations and standards. The revised standard SS  145 is adopted to ensure the safety of smart sockets which is the first step towards smart homes. 


Business benefits of testing smart sockets under SS 145-2

Electrical sockets are one of high risk-controlled goods as defined by the Enterprise Singapore and therefore is required to be regulated especially when used in homes. Testing your products by a third-party testing company like TÜV SÜD can benefit your business in the following ways: 

  • Protect your brand image - with product testing and certification that reduces the probability of costly and image-damaging product recalls.
  • Minimise your risk - of regulatory non-compliance and legal liabilities with our independent and impartial testing services.
  • Gain a competitive edge - with independent third-party certification that improves product quality and safety, and boosts buyer confidence in your products and brand.
