TECHNOLOGY controlled smart homes are the latest trend in the world of real estate. Brick Eagle has become a part of the revolution with their new township ‘Sheltrex’ at Karjat. It is a smart township which is spread over 2000 acres. The main aim of this township is to combine technology to create sustainable communities to meet the demands of the urban expansion.
Smart cities are based on the concept of utilizing technology for sustainable, structured and convenient lifestyles. The research and development into the making of smart cities has become an important agenda for the Indian government. This has also led to huge investment into the research and development for smart homes.
After all, the thoughts of whether you switched off things like the heating, air-conditioner and washing machine can nag you endlessly during the day and rob you off your concentration at work. Even the thought of whether you locked the main door properly or not can be troublesome. This is where smart homes come and tackle these thoughts and bring efficiency in your life.
Smart homes use the concept of the Internet of Things (IOT) and the Information Technology Enabled Services (ITES). The Internet of Things (IOT) refers to objects and products which are interconnected and identifiable through digital networks. This is the backbone of home automation.
Hence, the homeowners are able to control everything with a phone application. This application acts as an interface between home automation and e-governance. With this, the home owners have the power to track security features, electric and water fittings, gas connection and even their children till they are back home from school. The vision at Sheltrex is to build smart homes with lower cost that stand for efficiency and high standards of quality.
