The world gets smarter at times. Voice recognition allows us to ask devices to do certain tasks such as turning the house lights on and off, turning on the radio, turning on the TV, or turning on a certain channel. This is just some of the things that smart buildings do.

By example sapeople in agriculture also use sensors, machinery and certain mobile applications to know when to water Fields.

In most industries, different smart technologies are being used to add more value to their products and services through devices and systems that are connected to each other. These systems collect all the information, monitor it and exchange it. They also analyze the data with the sole purpose of improving the user experience.

As cities are smarter, so are infrastructure and buildings.
