A Hi-Tech Lifestyle with Dubai’s Luxury Villas

Dubai’s property market can be described in one word: luxurious. The city was dubbed a millionaire’s haven with good reason.

Properties being built on man-made peninsulas and the continuous development of ultra-modern luxury villas are not commonplace anywhere else in the world except here. The opulent and sometimes outlandish properties being developed here are enough to rival, and even outclass, those from Hollywood and Las Vegas.

For various reasons, a lot of expats in the UAE are ready to buy their own luxury villa in the city, while those on the upper upper class are likely to acquire more properties to add to their assets. Some want to have a space of their own in the city, while some acquire property and turn it into an investment. It’s not surprising, given how grand these luxury properties are.

Luxury villas have become the epitome of smart-home living. Most areas in this type of home have their own unique technology specific to the purpose of the room. You will find almost every room function connected to the internet through Wi-Fi connectivity and smartphone technology all for the sake of convenience.

Here’s a quick round up of what you can find in these homes.

Smartphone-controlled Appliances



When you step into these luxury properties, you will find they have one thing in common: almost everything can be controlled with your mobile device. Samsung, for instance, has a smart air conditioner that you can control through their smartphone app. This means you can turn your air conditioner on or off and adjust its temperature wherever you are in your home, as long as you’re connected to your WiFi.

It’s not just air conditioners, there are appliances like televisions, smart ovens, and refrigerators that can be controlled via WiFi connectivity. It’s not surprising that you’ll find smart HD TVs in almost every living room of these luxury properties.

Customizing electric home interior


Automation is another concept that makes luxury villas in Dubai an attractive option. Most of these homes have automated devices that you can program or schedule based on user preferences. Interior lighting is one example of this function. A home owner can customize the settings of your interior lights, so they only turn on or off during specific times during the day and night. The home owner can also do this with the home’s temperature control system (air conditioners being a part of this system), its security system, power distribution system, smoke detectors, and basically any electric appliance that you can connect with various systems installed in the house.

This combines convenience, energy efficiency, and control for a complete smart home experience.

Refrigerators smart enough to order your groceries


In the kitchens of luxury villas, the latest smart refrigerator is a vital feature. The best example for this is Samsung’s Family Hub Refrigerator which features an LCD screen that’s basically the fridge’s built-in tablet, but is essentially a kitchen assistant. Samsung will also release a variation of this that allows you to order groceries from partner stores and much more. This will be available in the UAE on 2017 and you can expect luxury villa owners to be the first ones to have this in their homes.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is playing a vital role in Dubai’s luxury villas and this is apparent in the high-end fixtures you will find on these properties. These innovative automated appliances contribute to what defines luxury villas as what they are – a grand property with a modern edge.
