Not everyone likes to be surrounded by many electronic devices.
I like the benefits of the new digital world... but I don't want to see my devices when I'm not using them. But everyone has diffrent approaches...
For me, there would be no way that I would ever install cameras in my appartment - I don't wanna be filmed all the way like in 1984.

Many people don't need these electronic things and prefer cleaning their appartment themselves (I, for instance, rather use the vacuum cleaner for a few minutes than always moving around furnitures and wait until the robot cleans behind them).

So if you like modern things, go ahead, put them in your home - but don't make people who don't really need them pay for them.

Introducing stricter building quality standards (like a minimal isolation and structural quality) are, in my oppinion, much more important for China and will help the country to protect its environment better.

The item 7 and the item 10 are not but the rest written in Mainland Chinese Design Regulations.
.
explanation:
1. Most buildings in rural area are designed and constructed by farmers. Government don't regulate these buildings.
2. there are 3 types of statements in Regulations:
2.1 must
2.2 should
2.3 may
3. I can't buy an apartment at 2,500 Chinese yuan per sqm or less in my city, Jinan. Let alone Guangzhou.
Probably he bought an apartment in rural area. So your example cannot be counted as a sample in city, but might a single case.

Example,  He just bought his first apartment 1,200 sq. ft.  The couple buys a Rmb300,000 apartment
.
300,000/(1,200*0.1)=2500 Chinese yuan per sqm

Providing a "space" for such possible "range of appliance" to invest for the "home owner" - does not mean, the citizen must purchase the items. (Just like i don't install a HOT WATER HEATER system in my expensive apartment in the city centre - prefering cold showers!)

BUT it will encourage such purchase, with "easy installation" procedures!

THE KEY would be the UNIVERSAL REMOTE CONTROL - based on the tablet computers.
It's only a "cheap addition" to cost of home construction!
Imagine a "smart home" for all Chinese homes or apartment.

eg. The Zhang family in Chengdu.
Mr. Zhang earns Rmb2,000 a month, while his wife makes Rmb1,000 a month. They just bought their first apartment, a 1,200 sq. ft. property for Rmb150,000 and it's paying Rmb800 a month on instalments, They have a Chery QQ car worth Rmb30,000 and paying Rmb500, and petrol, maintainance Rmb300 a month.

They, like the Mr. Chan's family in Guangzhou cannot possible buy all the appliances, furniture that would probably costRmb30,000 to Rmb120,000 for all the appliance envisaged. It would have to be done in stages.

IMAGINE, eventually all homes in China would have "modern, smart" home facilities!

cheerios!

You are stuck in Jinan for "far too long"......
According to China Daily, the average home prices in China is Rmb145 per sq. ft. Ask China Daily, don't complaint to me about your issues!
Unlike "smart people" like you in Jinan, We in the British Club are more "humble" and "down to earth" - we purchase "affordable homes" in the suburbs, and not "struggle" with the "older folks" for prime city centre locations!

ha ha ha

cheerios!

City centre homes in Guangzhou

......cost around Rmb1.2 million to Rmb2.5 million.

BUT was first purchase for Rmb300,000, 10 years earlier!
Young couples cannot generally afford CITY CENTRE properties, only foreign or out of province investors and middle class citizens!

cheerios!

Please provide your sources. or ask every editor of China Daily, can they buy such cheap apartment in any Chinese city?

I replied to you last night before I had double checked some of the housing regulations in China.

150000/120= RMB 1250 per sq. m. in Chengdu?
My God! along the north 2nd ring road of Chengdu, it is not less than RMB 6000.
