In a suite with a small living room at the Puleyuan Nursing Home in Beijing, air conditioning, TV, curtains and lightings are all controlled by Tmall Genie, Alibaba's voice-assistant smart speaker.

The smart nursing home pilot project, launched by Alibaba Group Holding Ltd in Beijing on Dec 26, 2017, is first of its kind in the country.

Senior residents living at the nursing home can activate these electronic devices simply through voice commands.

In addition, the room is equipped with a sensor that can sense human body, air humidity and temperature, which ensures the safety of the environment for residents.

At night, it can sense the wake-up motion and automatically turn on the lights.
