To redesign real estate and parking


Our ambitions




"At Idealys, we believe in a city that supports responsible uses. A city that encourages meetings and interactions within its inhabitants, that adapts to their needs and desires, whether individual or collective. A participative, collaborative, eco-responsible and benevolent city.

We design solutions for real estate professionnals so that they can manage and optimize their buildings by increasing their energy efficiency. A true digital infrastructure centralizes all the data in the building to make the right decisions and exploit all the value of their assets.

And within the buildings themselves, for end users, a mobile app gathers home automation, energy management, access control, incident management and parking, as well as a building community platform in order to exchange, help and inform each other, live together and consume better.

These new neighbourhoods that we are building together are the guiding thread of the evolution towards tomorrow’s city. They bring better habits in housing, tertiary, mobility and services to the future generations.

All of these advances are made possible today thanks to digital innovation. Wherever you are, Idealys gives you solutions to make you thrive in tomorrow’s city".

Our values

Citizens of our dear planet Earth, real estate promoters, union councils and trustees, public authorities… we are addressing you. « Draw me your city! » is a nod to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry The Little Prince, it is an invitation we have been initiating towards you since the beginning of this adventure to imagine your ideal city, so that we can, with you, bring it to life.

Your needs give rise to our services. The projection of tomorrow’s cities is first of all about imagination but also about listening, creativity, reflection… and patience. Patience and constancy so that the most incredible achievements and the most beautiful emotions can be unveiled.

Explorer, creative, benevolent, Idealys has been anticipating tomorrow’s cities needs for years, so that our innovations match your ideal and the ideal of a planet more sustainable and human.

Just like Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's texts, Idealys defends this strong base of solidarity, cooperation and opening, for oneself, for others and for the environment.

Dessine-moi ta ville



Working on smart city opens a deep civic reflection. How to create social cohesion to unite inhabitants and give the neighbourhoods a soul? How to make our cities more sensitive to sustainable development and local consumption? How to facilitate the uses of the individuals who make them up? And how can we support our customers in their transformation towards a sustainable real estate?

We wanted to answer these questions through innovation. In order to promote human bond, but also eco-citizenship, energy awareness, security and the development of new mobilities. So to make our cities collaborative spaces inhabited by benevolent and responsible women and men.




Our mastered technique, as well as our taste for challenge, innovation and avant-garde vision lead us to continuously reinvent ourselves in order to accelerate a digital transformation that creates relationships, capable of bringing new services to the society and the people who form it.

Our teams are currently working on the energy efficiency, with the help of specialized partners.
