Smart Cities and Their Benefits
The world of technology has made great advances and has been covering every aspect of the life of human beings. And the houses plus their surroundings have not been far from it.
There are alarm and security systems that are connected to our devices and local police to help us monitor our home 24/7. Smart lifts have also been invented that monitor up to the waiting time of the occupants, in order to move them faster.
And like these inventions, there are many that make people’s lives even more connected to technology. That is why, several cities around the world have begun to join the campaign to become more “Intelligent”, a term used to interconnect people with the advances to implement in real estate, not only homes but also offices and recreation centers.
But so much technology has caused doubts about the possible benefits that these Smart Cities could bring, and an analysis of them showed the following:
– More free time.
Smart lifts allow you to know the waiting and movement time to avoid people waiting too long for them. Also these implementations are seen in the traffic lights that allow the change of light in case it requires it.
– More security.
The alarm and surveillance systems are now also connected to local police, in order to give an intruder warning and allow a more efficient arrival. Also the intelligent elevators, allow to know and predict their failures before they occur, avoiding inconveniences and accidents.
– Energy efficiency.
The consumption of light is reduced with deployments of equipment and small solar plants, for a better automation of buildings or houses.
– Less contamination.
Cities emit high levels of pollution, but one of them that is more technologically updated, would allow the environment to become healthier and more sustainable for the environment.
