The rise and development of the smart city investments have been dominated by the potential for broad, large-scale implementations to deliver improved efficiency, improved health, environmental improvement and more. Typically, Smart City projects are pitched and developed at the governmental level - either city, regional or national - and have the extensive scope and potential to expand across each domain. But a groundswell of adoption of connected smart devices and systems within homes means a wealth of residential devices and systems leverageable to deliver sensor data points similar to those being developed and deployed for smart city applications.
This report examines the current and future potential for smart home installations to offer either foundations or extensions to smart city program development and implementation. The report looks at the most likely implementation points between smart home and smart city programs and the potential benefits that can accrue to both home and city focussed providers and residents alike.
