We have heard a lot about the Smart Cities or Smart Home, which, after all, are new terms that are the result of the changes that the smartphone has brought to our lives. However, we know little about how our homes will adapt to the smartphone era and integrate all the amenities that this brings to our home.

For this reason, from CITIBOX, an app that allows you to receive products and services at home without having to be at home, reveal the five keys that every home must have to adapt to smart life:

1. The smartphone without internet is no longer useful, therefore, one of the main requirements to adapt the house to this new era will be to have Wi-Fi in common areas. “There are already communities of neighbors with Wi-Fi in the common areas to reinvent and modernize community services,” explains Carlos Carrasco, CMO of Citibox.

2. Another implementation to integrate housing in the Smart era will be the electronic lockers. Currently 70% of Spaniards buy or contract services via smartphone anywhere and at any time. Although the purchase or purchase is easy, the reception of this is usually the most complicated, hence many communities of neighbors already have the electronic lockers so that their neighbors receive their purchases and services at home without needing to be at home . In this way you can pick it up when you can or want; “Today, 7,000 homes already have the installation of our electronic lockers to carry out the day-to-day errands: buying bread, picking up the newly washed suit or even receiving online purchases,” points out Carrasco. These lockers have become the integration of Smart life to neighboring communities.

3. Surveillance systems, in the future, aspire to rely on a common interface to interconnect neighbors. So far, alarms have been the main method of security for homes, however, thanks to the technology we have systems that we can control from our smartphone. Even systems exist today that interconnect homes with their neighbors. An example is a smart promotion located in a town in Madrid that has become one of the first communities to share, in addition to the garden and pool, a common interface. “With this system an intercommunication between the houses is obtained and in this way to control them individually and collectively,” specifies Carrasco.



4. So far we have talked about the housing of the future from the outside, but from within? Several studies affirm and reality corroborates that the houses will be managed from the smartphone (SmartHome). In the future the houses will combine the home automation to obtain more sustainable homes; The lighting will adapt automatically according to the sunlight and the presence of people; Awnings, blinds and curtains will be opened or closed according to the lighting conditions, and the temperature will always be suitable, since the heating and air conditioning will be started depending on the outside temperature and human presence.

5. Without a doubt, the real estate challenge of the future is focused on intelligent buildings that are not only about domotics but also about achieving sustainable and efficient buildings. “For us it is key to work hand in hand with the real estate developers to get the optimization of the real estate with the best technology and thus increase the comfort of the neighbors,” Carrasco points out.
