Honeywell Building Technologies has signed an agreement with Egypt’s Misr Italia Properties, to support its digital transformation journey through the creation of sustainable, smart community living in both existing and new projects in development.

This includes the Cairo Business Park and Il Bosco City projects.

In the first collaboration with Misr Italia Properties, Honeywell will deploy pilot projects that enable smart living through its latest advanced solutions including Honeywell City Suite and Honeywell Forge enterprise performance management software.

The MoU will focus on integrating the solutions across Misr Italia Properties’ developments into a single command and control platform, for enhanced visibility and control. Honeywell will deploy advanced city surveillance systems (CCTV) for improved emergency response and access control; sustainable and energy efficient technologies for energy optimization as well as smart irrigation, smart street lighting, water management and smart parking, said the statement from Honeywell.

The pact with Honeywell will strengthen Misr Italia Properties’ strategic position as a growing business, with a unique vision for smart and sustainable solutions in Egypt’s real estate market.

It also enhances Honeywell’s established tracked record of delivering smart city solutions in Egypt and the wider Middle East and North Africa region.

"Egypt is at the forefront of driving some of the world’s most prestigious smart city projects as it seeks to enhance the standard of living and accelerate the pace of digital transformation," said Khaled Hashem, President, Honeywell, Egypt and North Africa.
