Emaar’s new product will launch in 2020 as an exclusive set of digitally-enabled residential developments, powered by Xiaomi and featuring a one-of-a-kind smart home experience with a comprehensive set of pre-installed smart home and IoT products. The MoU positions Emaar as the first developer outside of China to enter into a strategic partnership with Xiaomi for a smart home experience.

Together, our partnership delivers a novel product never-before-seen in the region, offering connectivity, comfort and convenience for the customers of tomorrow, today. This is based on our collective understanding and insight into what customers will demand from us in the future.”
