Smart Living

The smart living area is a very broad concept, which includes categories related to intelligent management and functioning in the city (smart city), working (smart workplace), movement (smart transport), home (smart home).

Smart living development factors

We are observing the dynamically developing Smart Living trend. In our Report, we have defined a number of factors that affect this. As we have already noted in the introduction, technologies, and thus the wide availability of technologies such as Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, 5G Internet are not the only aspect of Smart living; they constitute just one of the factors of change.

  • Smart living is not only improvement, but also creativity, i.e. breaking out of existing canons. Smart is also clever solutions, and the cleverness in this case is to find shorter paths from point A to point B that no one has ever thought of before.
    prof. Piotr Płoszajski | Head of Theory of Management Department, Warsaw School of Economics

The crisis in 2008 caused changes in social attitudes. We are increasingly aware of the limited energy resources, we want to save energy both because of the home budget and because of our planet. We are increasingly observing the need for sustainable development. Technologies in the area of smart home, smart city or smart workplace come to our aid in the face of the growing desire to control our security or popularize on demand services.


The further development of smart living will have to face many challenges, including mental barriers to the use of such solutions, ensuring cyber security, and increasing demand for electricity.

Global demand for electricity is increasing every year. The International Energy Agency (IEA) analysts estimate that by 2040, it will increase by 30%, pointing to several key factors behind these forecasts. First of all, the global economy is growing by an average of 3.4% per year. The population is also growing and in 2040 it will exceed 9 billion (currently 7.4 billion). The urbanization process is clearly progressing; 55% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, according to forecasts, this percentage will rise to 68% by 2050, which will give another 2.5 billion city residents. Millions of households are purchasing more equipment and installing cooling systems.
