Deyaar part­ners with Huawei for smart homes

Gulf Business - - NEWS AND VIEWS -

Dubai de­vel­oper Deyaar has signed a MoU with Huawei to de­ploy tech­nol­ogy so­lu­tions such as smart home ap­pli­ca­tions in its pro­jects.

The five-year part­ner­ship will cover the in­tro­duc­tion of net­works and Voice over In­ter­net Pro­to­col (VoIP) ca­pa­bil­i­ties in nu­mer­ous prop­er­ties, in­clud­ing Mont Rose, The Atria, Al Bar­sha Ho­tel and Deyaar’s head­quar­ters, the com­pany said.

Fu­ture pro­jects will also be fit­ted with th­ese so­lu­tions.

Huawei will work with Deyaar to de­velop tech­nol­ogy plans for its Mid­town res­i­den­tial project, which will in­clude smart homes, com­mu­ni­ties, and in­te­grated life­styles.

Launched in 2014, the Mid­town project is ex­pected to in­clude 27 build­ings with res­i­den­tial units, re­tail out­lets, ameni­ties such as clin­ics, swim­ming pools, ten­nis and bas­ket­ball courts and a ho­tel.

Spread across five mil­lion sq ft, the devel­op­ment is es­ti­mated to cost be­tween Dhs2.5bn to Dh­s3bn with a ma­jor part of the project slated for com­ple­tion by 2020.

Deyaar also con­firmed that as part of the part­ner­ship, it will im­ple­ment Huawei’s CCTV video cloud so­lu­tion to im­prove se­cu­rity at its prop­er­ties.

Saeed Al Qatami, CEO of Deyaar, said: “Con­nected homes are no longer a fu­tur­is­tic con­cept – they are re­al­is­ti­cally achiev­able today.”

Colin Hu, man­ag­ing direc­tor, Huawei En­ter­prise, UAE, added: “With tech­nol­ogy chang­ing at such a rapid pace, it is es­pe­cially im­por­tant for build­ings to be equipped with scal­able and sus­tain­able net­work ca­pa­bil­i­ties.”
