Emaar Properties, the Dubai-based land developer, has joined hands with Chinese technology titan Xiaomi to launch ‘Emaar Smart Home’. Powered by artificial intelligence, it is touted as the home of the future that encompasses all the features of smart home technology.
Both the parties have inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that will witness the offering being developed this year at a dedicated location of digitally-led residential projects crafted by Xiaomi that possesses the biggest IoT (Internet of Things) consumer platform across the globe.
Emaar has the distinction of being the first ever property developer outside China to foray into a strategic alliance with Xiaomi. Emaar Smart Homes are expected to come up around the region of MENA.
Speaking on the latest product to be offered to consumers, Mohamed Alabbar, Chairman of Emaar, said that Emaar Smart Home is a result of the great dedication and passion that are common between Emaar and Xiaomi for crafting innovative dwelling products.
He added that the Smart Homes will deliver customers futuristic living experiences that are unprecedented, apart from providing access to state-of-the-art technology and hassle-free lifestyles.
Xiaomi will be responsible for the supervising and administering of these Smart Homes through its Mi Home application. The app has products that enable the users to control their homes just by giving an oral command through the smart voice assistant features embedded in it.
Apart from these, the Emaar Smart Home will also feature Xiaomi’s other novel facilities such as Mi Smart Door Lock that offers safety and comfort through keyless access into the homes using smartphones, passwords and wearables.
