It brings together Wifi and cloud-based home networking, home automation and control, home entertainment, surveillance and other value-added services and devices.
“The UAE is in the midst of a ‘Smart’ evolution and through the relationship with HKT and PCCW Global we are empowering our community to reap the full benefits of this tech-powered society from within their homes. A Smart Home combines convenience with simple-to-operate, yet powerful innovation, bringing the connected world into every aspect of our lives,” said Fahad Al Hassawi, CCO, du.
