In case you missed it back in 2020, Hassantuk was announced as a fire safety system for villas in the UAE. It ensures the swiftest response time to fire and emergency alerts through a 24x7 connected fire alarm system, integrated with Civil Defense Command Centres in every emirate. This system was offered by the Ministry of Interior and powered by Etisalat, and aims to establish the UAE as one of the safest countries in the world.
On the 12th of September 2020, the Cabinet, which was led by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister, and Ruler of Dubai, approved a Resolution which made it mandatory for villa owners in the UAE to install fire detection devices and subscribe to the civil defence e-system - which is Hassantuk. This initiative aims to enhance fire safety in villas by introducing 'Hassantuk for Homes,' the only certified wireless fire safety system designed specifically for villas.
It’s worth noting “The Resolution also grants the owners of existing homes a period of up to three years from the issuance of the Resolution to amend the conditions in line with its provisions”. Meaning homeowners have until around September this year to subscribe to the scheme if they haven’t already done so. So, if you skipped out on the news in 2020, you’ve got a couple of months to install Hassantuk!
Prices are based on individual villas features, such as the amenities, number of rooms, kitchen spaces, etc.
Here’s an example cost:
A three bedroom villa, with three dining room/living room/majlis as well as three corridors/lobbies/staircases and one kitchen, would start from AED 233.10 a month for a 24 month plan (with a AED 1000 one-time payment for setup).
Or you can choose a one time payment of AED 5,903.10

The deadline for installing Hassantuk is three years after the original resolution was passed, so September 2023.
Fear not, if you’ve got an apartment you do not need Hassantuk as your building should have one in place already, but if you are looking for a villa then we have a huge selection of villas for sale in Dubai. You can browse our live listings!
