Smart homes for Saadiyat Island
Hidd Al Saadiyat development will use smart home automation system from UT Technology
Villas in the new Hidd Al Saadiyat development, located at Abu Dhabi's Saadiyat Island, will get smart, with a home automation system from UT Technology, an Etisalat subsidiary.
The smart home solution will be deployed in homes in the new beachfront development, which is being built by Saadiyat Development and Investment Company (SDIC).
The automation system will allow residents to use smartphones, tablets or LCD keypads to command lighting, audio, video, climate, energy and safety elements in their homes, either while at home or remotely.
Ahmed Alhashimi, deputy CEO of UT Technology, said: "At UT Technology we work hard to develop smart solutions that will transform and simplify the UAE lifestyle. Our goal is to connect people and educate the new generation about the benefits of smart cities, always keeping in mind the Abu Dhabi 2030 vision and the Estidama rating for sustainability standards."
"Saadiyat Development and Investment Company (SDIC) is committed to implement sustainable practices that are in compliance with Abu Dhabi's sustainability standards of new projects and help the country become a benchmark for sustainable development, globally," said Dr Adnan Sahli, chief operating officer of LEAD Development, working as the Development Manager for Hidd Al Saadiyat.
The automation system adopted at Hidd Al Saadiyat also offers residents a series of other benefits, such as a community portal through which they can benefit from full integration with e-Life service, unified billing integration, real time monitoring, reporting, and much more.
"We are creating the perfect place to work, live and play and we've thought through every detail to make sure it is exactly what the tenants of our project require," Sahli added.
