Smart realty market ‘to top $3.25bn by 2010’
Dubai, April 28, 2008
The smart home, building and office market in the Gulf will exceed $3.25 billion by 2010, predicted ActiveMania.
The prediction was based on the increasing demand for highly-advanced home automation technologies from local and regional developers, the company said.
With aims to maximise the growing popularity of ‘smart homes’ in the country, ActiveMania is participating at The Install exhibition - one of three vertically integrated shows under Palme Middle East 2008 at the Pavilion Hall of the Dubai International Exhibition Centre (DIEC).
The event will serve as the launch pad for ActiveMania’s all new aimobi 403, a new system that operates via remote access through 3G connectivity.
The aimobi 403 embodies the third generation of wireless connectivity, and enjoys high-speed remote home access through a portable device.
It features a handheld compact and slim Ultra-Mobile PC, powered by Nawaiya’s ILM3G, packing all the power of mobile phones and PC functionality.
The aimobi 403 seamlessly integrates ActiveMania’s Smart Solutions and offers users the flexibility and convenience of accessing and controlling all their Entertainment, Automation, Telecommunication, Security, and Interactive content features wirelessly and on the go.
Thus, users will be able to enjoy IPTV and real-time video streaming, manage their multi-source/zone/user AV distribution, control the lights, adjust HVAC’s temperature, monitor CCTV and IP cams, and launch scenarios on the move.
“The future is about ubiquitous connectivity inside the home, and outside it via remote home access that is flexible, scalable and modular. Through this third generation of wireless connectivity, ActiveMania is able to seamlessly bring together disparate technologies and access them wirelessly from anywhere in the world and at anytime via the aimobi 403. Our participation at this event is part of our strategy to showcase the outstanding enhancement we have developed for the aimobi 403” said Ribal Zwein, vice-president for design and implementation at ActiveMania.
“The ILM 3G is by far the smallest and the lightest ultra mobile PC and Mobile Phone convergence device making it ideal for ActiveMania’s product roadmap.” added Nawaiya managing director Samer Suheil. – TradeArabia News Service
