Mr. Philippe Bertrand, General Manager Consumer & Industrial, Global Market Development, said: â€œEnergy efficiency is now highly regarded as a social responsibility to which individuals can contribute effectively. HabiTEQ is a perfect complement to the â€˜Green Buildingâ€™ initiative currently rolled out in Dubai to encourage home-users to promote sustainable practices involving energy efficiency.â€
HabiTEQ helps manage efficient residential living spaces and also cuts costs for end-users.

It is programmed to work with any wall-mounted switch, on any HMI, for renovations or new construction projects.
Easy to install in apartments or villas, HabiTEQ can be infinitely customizable through software for adding tangible value for builders, installers and homeowners.
Initial response to the launch of HabiTEQ has been encouraging. Several international technical solutions speakers addressed the audience on GEâ€™s home automation solutions capabilities.
