Dubai Civil Defence installed the first Direct Alarm System for Homes

After signing the memorandum of understanding with Dubai Civil Defence to install 24x7 Direct Alarm System for Homes in all Mohammed Bin Rashid Housing Establishment projects earlier this year, the first Direct Alarm System for Homes was installed in Al Barsha. The Direct Alarm System for Homes uses latest technology to connect Homes to the DCD 24x7 Command Control Center to save lives and protect residents from any life threatening emergency. All special information of the residence including location map, shortest route to the building, its picture and exit-entry points are pre-populated in the system and comes up on computer screen at DCD 24x7 Command Control Center whenever an alarm is triggered for immediate dispatch.

This housing project will demonstrate 1,240 smart villas using the innovative system and develop a community that is safe for everyone.
