Is UAE smart-home enabled?

Smart homes need smart planning.

The smart home could be a newly constructed home or an existing home converted into a smart home. Whatever the case maybe, it requires a lot of electrical planning and for the electrical equipment suppliers in UAE to be ready with providing the latest electrical items to support the intelligent systems.

The concept of smart homes is already a reality in United Arab Emirates (UAE). In 2019, Arada a UAE developer, offered  smart home technology in every unit of its Misk Apartments to provide latest in home technology and energy cost savings to every homeowner.

Today a smart home may have:

1. Smart Lighting:

Smart lighting can consist of:

 WiFI smart LED light bulbs,

– Bluetooth Smart Bulbs,

– WiFi smart LED light strips controlled via siri or an App,

– WiFi smart dimmer switches

– WiFi smart LED tile kits to transform your home wall into a piece of décor with incredible scenes.

 Tunable lighting which changes automatically as per the genre of music you are listing to.

All this may require In-Wall Remote Control Panels, deep junction boxes and even a 3-wire (hot, neutral and load) connection.

2. Smart home theatre:

A home theater system, is most sought after in every smart home. But the installation of the home theatre requires planning. The equipment rack which has the home theater equipment, amplifiers, DVD players and DSS receivers, do generate a lot of heat. So, first and foremost, the equipment rack should have a cooling system. Further, it should be able to connect to multiple output power bars to manage the power cables. The best power bars utilize stabilizing clips that slide-on ensuring the power plugs don’t disconnect and come off loose from the power bar.

3. Wall Mega-TV:

TV wall technology has been the brainchild of Samsung. Samsung unveiled their “The Wall” MicroLED TV, which consists of a modular design that lets you assemble your own display to the size of the wall.

4. Smart Wiring for Data:

Data cabling is needed to install your A/V, telephone, HVAC, and security systems. Cat. 5 or cat. 5e cables are mostly used for Ethernet networks. Data cabling also includes installing multi-zone HVAC controllers, distribution panels and more related equipment.

5. Smart Bathrooms:

Kohler in 2018 launched Kohler Konnect. This smart technology in bathrooms is voice enabled making your bathroom experience almost hands free. From warm up a toilet seat or being alerted when the bath water is at the perfect temperature, smart bathrooms are here to stay. Behind every smart bathroom there is a ground-fault circuit-interrupter (GFCI) for protection.

6. Power surge systems:

Electrical power surge can occur in any home. Though not a common occurrence in UAE, it is still advisable to protect the electrical appliances and home entertainment products by installing a surge suppressor especially if one is using a significant number of powerline automation components in the house.

7. Wireless smart door lock:

From Video doorbells to smart bio-metric scanner doors to iris scanner doors, the entrance to any home has become hi-tech.

8. WiFi security camera:

Smart-homes have WiFi enabled indoor and outdoor security cameras. These security cameras have motion detectors to get instant alert on mobile/tablet when motion is detected at home. 

9. Smart thermostats:

Smart thermostats help to detect smoke. These work with both Google and Amazon’s virtual assistants.

10. Wireless Charging:

Wireless charging has been introduced by several tech companies as well as by the Swedish furniture giant, IKEA. This technology will certainly liberate homes from having cables and sockets in every room to plug in mobiles for charging.

11. Intelligent Home décor:

Heavy decorative blinds can be easily controlled remotely now. Opening and closing blinds can be controlled by voice activation as well.

So now to answer the question, Is UAE smart-home enabled? Yes,  it is!

The architects and developers are ready with the design and concept implementation. The electrical traders in the UAE are ready with a supply of the latest electrical wiring and electronic components obligatory to handle these smart gadgets. A large number of international brand products that support smart home technology is now available in UAE. Whether leading electrical companies in UAE or a Dubai electrical shop or UAE electrical outlet or a supplier of electronic components Abu Dhabi, the electrical industry in UAE is certainly most updated on the latest electrical products and innovations in the industry. When a large construction project undertakes to provide smart homes, the requirement has to be met.

The top electrical trader in UAE supplying latest electrical products for smart homes, may also be a,

– Legrand supplier for smart light switches

– Schneider supplier for electric smart homes

– Mennekes supplier for WiFi smart plugs and sockets

– USB socket supplier

 Ip 66 floor box supplier 

– Motion sensor supplier 

 Floor box supplier

From design to build, everyone contributes to a smart home. Beginning with design that will integrate more gadgets in the future, to supply of large volume of latest electrical components, to working with the electrician to isolate non-automation loads, a smart home needs a lot of detailed planning and coordination.

Conclusion: UAE has been a forerunner in embracing change. The upcoming mega Expo 2020 Dubai, emphasizes to fund, accelerate and promote creative solutions that improve lives while preserving the planet. Smart Home technology will be a part of this expo exhibiting the latest advances from the world over. The time is now to ‘Smart proof’ our homes to add value to our lives for a better tomorrow.

What’s Happening to the Energy Industry?

When you service all makes of turbine, all around the world, how do you make sure that safety standards are maintained at the highest level? It’s an important question – and when we talk to our customers about what’s most important to them competencies in renewable energy systems. IRecco’s extensive range of robust and reliable products backed by its cutting-edge R&D and more than two decades of expertise are designed to ensure optimum performance. Of course, it’s a given that all turbines live up to strict legislation, but that’s not really where the greatest safety challenge lies. If you look at the causes of incidents, more than 90% are caused by human behavior. That’s why we believe that keeping the highest safety record means creating a safety-first mindset.

The people I meet who service our turbines are special: They’re proud of what they do, and they take their jobs very seriously. It’s not an easy environment to work in. When you’ve experienced standing on the top of an 80m high turbine, swaying in the wind like a ship at sea, you really respect what they do. It takes a cool head and a lot of courage.

Why it Might Be Time to Visit Wind Farm Self-Performance

But not all the people who are attracted to this lifestyle – because that’s what it is – are not natural-born rule followers. And to secure a high safety level for all, we spend a lot of time developing watertight safety procedures and protocols which must become second nature for them. Because not following rules has serious consequences. Secondly, training is vital, both technical safety training, turbine specific training as well as Safety awareness training. Adding to this leadership needs to be strong and leaders perform safety walks to check first-hand what our engineers will encounter. Even our executive leadership takes part, and our CEO has climbed the ladder and walked the roof of a nacelle… so when they talk safety they can speak from experience.

“ There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning failure ” -Tina Retina

Our goal is to create the same service documentation for each and every turbine, in a standardized, user-friendly format. Our engineers already have enough to think about without having to navigate convoluted directions! With this global service manual, we’re able to give the same training round the world to make sure all our technicians stay safe. Performance and target-wise we don’t distinguish between brands and expect the same safety performance when servicing all makes of turbines. Because safety comes first. It’s that simple.

Why trading is still a lucrative business in the UAE and the rebirth of electrical trading?

United Arab Emirates (UAE) is the where the East meets the West. Tradition mingled with modernism is what UAE embodies.

UAE has been on the trade route to many countries in Africa, Middle East, China and Europe and still continues to do so.

In recent years, the government of UAE shifted its focus from an oil trading economy to give impetus to non-oil trading, tourism, real estate, construction, and logistics.

Why trading has survived in UAE and is still a lucrative business is because of its strategic location, ease of doing business and world-class infrastructure available  throughout  the emirates .  Emirate  introduced reforms to shift their focus on oil exports to other newer sectors. Electrical trading was reborn to the 2004 construction boom. Since then,  till date with the upcoming Expo 2020 DubaiElectrical traders in UAE are witnessing a steady growth in business. Whether Wago supplier in UAE  or  DLink Cat6 Jack dealer or  parking sensors or Mennekes supplier or low voltage or Arteor Legrand supplier in UAE or supplies connectors, or Himel  ,  LED downlights, these traders or suppliers have represented the best electrical brands in UAE

UAE is a federation of seven emirates of Abu Dhabi (the capital), Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah, and Fujairah.

‘Ease of Doing Business 2020’:

In World Bank’s Doing Business 2020 report, the World Bank has praised the UAE as a forerunner in setting business reforms. UAE’s four new reforms introduced in 2019 include:

  1. Business incorporation fee reduction to attract new business
  2. Lesser number of inspections in construction to ease providing the necessary construction permits
  3. Increased minority investor protections by providing for the qualification of directors in case of prejudicial conflicts of interest; and
  4. Facilitating trading across borders by reducing the time to export, by fully digitizing certificates of origin and the cost to import by issuing certificates of conformity that cover multiple shipments.

In 2019, the UAE ranked 16th out of 115 countries for overall ‘Ease of Doing Business 2020’.

Various options to set up business in UAE:

The government of UAE has provided foreign companies with multiple options to set up business in the country depending on their individual requirements. Companies can choose from one of the below options to set up a company in the UAE. It can be either,

  • A Limited Liability Company (LLC)
  • A Branch
  • A Representative office
  • A Free trade zone establishment
  • An International Business Company acting as a holding company for subsidiaries outside of UAE

Why trading in UAE has flourished

Trading in the desert hub was omnipresent with pearls, dates and oil being traded. But with the

farsightedness and governance of HE Sheikh Zayed,bin Sultan Al Nahyan of Abu Dhabi and HH Sheikh Makhtoum bin Rashid Al Makhtoum of Dubai, UAE prepared for trading on a much larger international scale. Its business reforms aimed at attracting foreign investments. The reason it has been so successful as a trading hub in the region are –

i. The UAE has one of the most liberal trade regimes in the Gulf to encourage strong capital flows from across the region.

ii. There are a large number of highly skilled expatriate workers in UAE who contribute to making UAE a pot of mixed cultures

iii. The UAE progressively diversified its economy from oil-based to non-oil by building a strong infrastructure to sustain alternative trading activities.

iv. The UAE is very well connected to the rest of the world, mainly due to its national carrier Etihad, and Dubai’s Emirates Airlines. 

v. Dubai’s Jebel Ali port is one of the largest and most advanced transshipment ports in the region

vi. A large number of Fortune 500 companies have their regional headquarters in the UAE. UAE’s 25 plus free zones are also home to over 6400 multinational companies and regional companies from over 120 different countries.

vii. Liberal tax, especially in free trade zones which generally offer guaranteed tax holidays to businesses, is one of the incentives to set up a trading business in UAE.

Overall:

While industries like advertising, public relations, media and entertainment, construction, real estate, and manufacturing of ancillaries were UAE’s top growth indicators in 2019, trading continued to grow and contribute in every sector. The UAE today has a flourishing business economy with a high per capita income and a sizeable annual trade surplus. Constant efforts over the last few decades have helped the economy diversify with oil contributing not more than 25% of its GDP. In fact, as per the article in Khaleej Times December 2019, just Dubai’s non-oil foreign trade alone crossed Dh 1 trillion. This was possible due to the impetus given to trading in various non-oil sectors and other elements like construction, foreign investment, etc.

Whether electrical traders in UAE or food stuff traders in UAE or re-exporters in UAE, every sector is being supported by traders. UAE trades with countries like India, China, USA, Germany, and Japan for machinery and transport equipment. It also re exports to 27 members of the European Union, India, Japan, China, South Korea, United States of America, Thailand, Singapore and Oman commodities like crude oil, natural gas, re-export items, fish and dates.

Conclusion:

UAE’s economy has been built on the trading industry rather than the agricultural industry or manufacturing industry. With a small population, foreign labor and smart governance,  the government of UAE continued to encourage its people to trade with countries far and wide. The hard work and shrewdness of traders along with their strength to trade in multiple commodities, has ensured trading continues to be the backbone and strength of UAE. Trading in UAE has not only survived tough times but flourished due to a strong economic and political system and reforms to encourage foreign trade. Similarly, electrical trading too survives VAT and financial restraints in the construction industry and retail industry to continue to grow even facing new challenges every day.
