Batelco, in collaboration with Elear, has launched ‘Smart Property’, an IoT based home automation product that benefits property owners, facility managers and tenants.

Batelco is the first company in the GCC region to launch this innovative product which is designed to enable property owners to efficiently manage their properties, reduce costs and maximise revenues, through smart and intelligent solutions.

The ‘Smart Property’ product, a 360-degree smart living solution which features three main elements; Home Automation, Property Management and Smart Energy, is designed for a contemporary lifestyle, as it completely automates a property, making it more appealing to tenants.

Home Automation embeds all the expected beneficial features of a smart home, allowing users to operate and control functions such as lighting and air conditioning, remotely or through enabling timer-based operation of equipment and devices, through an app.

In the event that any equipment fault occurs, tenants can use the Property Management feature, which is a digital communication channel enabling direct contact between the tenant and property manager, helping to facilitate quick resolutions for any maintenance issues. The Property Management App allows scheduling of maintenance visits and access to data regarding previous maintenance history of equipment.

The Smart Energy feature also plays an important role by helping to monitor and control energy usage leading to cost savings, and in initial tests carried out using AI analytics, energy savings of around 20% have been recorded.

Speaking on the partnership, Elear Solutions CEO, Ashish Bajaj, said: “Elear Solutions, a technology products company that enables easier development of Edge Compute AI-driven Apps, Devices, and Services, is on a mission to simplify the development of low latency digital services in the 5G & IoT era. We are very excited to partner with Batelco as our lead customer in the GCC region. Their vision with the convergence of Smart Home, Smart Property, and Smart Energy exemplifies their market knowledge and innovation, Batelco is leading the way in showing property owners and their tenants how a smart home ecosystem can enhance lives in ways unimagined before,” he added.

Commenting on the launch of Smart Property, Batelco General Manager Enterprise Abderrahmane Mounir, said: “We are pleased to introduce this innovative digital product, in partnership with Elear, to benefit property owners in Bahrain, helping them to deliver one solution with many benefits. By having ‘smart’ properties, building owners can attract tenants who demand efficiently run, cost saving homes. The customizable product is designed by Batelco’s team to suit the specific requirements of each property, working to enhance the lives of owners and tenants alike.”

“The introduction of Smart Property is in line with Batelco’s strategy to move beyond its core business into non-telecom adjacent businesses, as part of its provisioning of digital solutions, in line with Bahrain’s 2030 vision of a digitized economy,” he added.
