Kainga Ora Homes and Communities (Kainga Ora) is a new Crown agency that brings together the people, capabilities and resources of KiwiBuild, Housing New Zealand, and its development subsidiary HLC. This will enable a more joined-up approach to delivering the Government's housing and urban development priorities, addressing homelessness and making homes more affordable for New Zealanders. Kainga Ora will continue to be a public housing landlord and provide good quality, warm, dry and healthy homes and tenancy services. It will also continue to maintain and develop its public housing stock.

In March 2018, Housing New Zealand (now part of Kainga Ora) undertook an initiative called the Smart Homes Pilot. The Pilot, utilising two suppliers, installed electronic sensors in 160 Kainga Ora homes across Palmerston North and the Hutt Valley. Each pilot home had sensors installed for the measurement of: Temperature; Carbon dioxide; and Relative Humidity. Pilot data collection concluded 31 October 2019. The sensors are currently being collected and returned to the suppliers. This process is expected to be completed by 31 December 2019.

As part of the wider Smart Homes Project, Kainga Ora is now considering introducing sensors to a range of homes across New Zealand.
This RFP relates to the purchase of a solution that can enable Kainga Ora to monitor the environmental conditions of the homes and contributors to those conditions (e.g. power consumption, external conditions). To achieve this goal, we require a supplier with the capacity and capability to provide the sensors, on-going maintenance and support, and a platform for data transmission. Kainga Ora will manage data analysis as well as installation and customer (tenant) liaison.
