Zigbang, an all-out war to export smart home services to Neom City

Zigbang participated in the Neom City development project, a mega project worth 500 billion dollars. It is to export digital door locks and wall pads, which are smart home services developed by Zigbang.

Ahn Seong-woo, CEO of Jikbang, participated in the Korea-Saudi Housing Cooperation Forum held at Jamsil Lotte Hotel on the 29th and presented smart home OS and services. Jikbang acquired the Home IoT division of Samsung SDS in July and developed digital door locks and wall pads. It is expected that Neom City will be able to create synergy as it has taken the development thread as a representative smart city.

The SHP-R80 smart door lock developed by Zikbang applied ultra-wideband (PCB) technology. Unlike NFC door locks that could only be opened by taking out a mobile phone and tagging it directly, you can unlock it by approaching it with a smartphone equipped with a Samsung Pay digital key.

Along with this, Jikbang also introduced a real estate brokerage service using 3D virtual reality (VR) technology. This is a service that provides information as if visiting a real property with 3D digital twin technology, computer graphics (CG) and VR. Through this, the possibility of mediation without being face to face was suggested.

They also showcased SOMA, a game-based virtual office. Jikbang showed a scene where he built the Kingdom Center building, a landmark in Saudi Arabia, in Soma and met and spoke with an employee who was working remotely. The video of the Saudi Arabia World Cup team’s victory over Argentina was shown on the electronic board, and they did their best a few weeks ago.

Ahn Seong-woo, CEO of Jikbang, said, “Zikbang door locks and wall pads already occupy the highest market share in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Australia, and boast the world’s highest level of technology.” he said.
