Often the words "integrated township" "smart living" "smart city" sound pleasant to your ears. The reason is simple; it makes you live a smart and sustainable life. With the migration of people in urban areas, there is an increased aspiration to live in integrated townships. This has turned from a luxury to a necessity for a new age home buyer. Here's why -
Today, integrated township has emerged as a solution to problems of traffic congestion, visitors parking and security & surveillance. Quality living with lifestyle amenities is at one place! An integrated township is a smart township, which offers a plethora of amenities for its residents. Integrated self-managed townships with round-the-clock security, smart electric grid, and proper water management system, street light automation with beautifully designed residential, commercial and recreational areas will create 'Smart City'. Among several townships, Wave City has been recently awarded the Best Integrated Smart Township Award at Times Business Realty Awards 2018.
Living in an integrated township can reduce your everyday pain and urban challenges (traffic, parking, power, water). The advantages which you might miss in your city lives are available at a smart township. Being a smart city, Wave City offers smart electric grid, weather station, water management system, air quality measurement, gas pipeline, solid waste management, street light automation, city portal in the form of an app, and traffic & transportation management, power back up and 24X7 security to name a few. It houses DPS School and Indo-German Hospital also.
By water management we mean 24X7 water availability, adequate pressure for the water at all height levels, automatic detection of water leakage, prevention of water theft, strainer for filtering out dirt particles. Moving over to security, thanks to advanced technologies that enhances the security and safety of new age residents.
With round-the-clock security systems, gated communities provide a sense of protection. Surveillance cameras installed at the gates are capable of capturing photos of incoming and outgoing vehicles. Data can be stored up to 6 months for reviews. There is also an in built facility of intercom system.
The street light automation system will ensure that Wave City is all lit up at dusk and all the street lights automatically go off at day break. Today integrated townships facilitate power back up. Again, there is smart metering system, where there is 100% metred electrical supply. At automatic substations, Diesel Generator (DG) starts automatically & auto/mains changeover is manless. Another important aspect of a smart township is intelligent traffic and transport management system. A smooth traffic flow not only means smooth flow but also ensures less pollution, vehicles protection, smart signals, parking guidance and traffic management through GPS.
Gone are the days, when one needs to rely only on newspapers for weather updates. Now, everything is quick, Wave City residents can be aware of heat index levels, dangerous wind chills, stone warning alarms in advance. There is an internal mechanism to calculate online air balance and pollution level. Calculating PM2.5, an atmospheric particulate matter, whose diameter is less than 2.5 micrometers is indispensable for health levels, especially for asthma and heart patients. As the particulate material is small and light, this tends to remain in the air for longer time than heavier materials and we humans can inhale this into our body, throat, lungs and even the circulatory system.
Moving over to solid waste management, an efficient solid waste management helps to dispose the waste and keeps the area green. Biodegradable substances are used for generating manure and bio gas. Manure is used for gardening and horticulture.
Residents can monitor activities at the township with the help of a My City App. Complaints, events, notices, bills & utility, citizen services, special requests, gate pass all are managed through this app. This is 24X7 web enabled complaint management system. This app helps to organise the work and make life free from daily worries.
To sum up, an integrated township provides smart living, clean surroundings and preserve resources at its best. To ensure life sails smoothly, high tech technology is used to maintain a smarter and sustainable city. We would like to end this discussion with a Edward Glaeser quote, "Humanity's greatest invention - 'city', is the best hope for future to make it richer, smarter, greener, healthier and happier.
