ValorSmart Technologies

There is a lot of talk about applying “Smart Solutions” to your business, municipality or building but what is “Smart” technology and how should it be deployed?  At Valor Smart Technologies we approach that question with a philosophy of identifying a challenge and then applying the best technical solution to meet that issue.

Secure

Citizens and visitors trust their community to keep them and their data safe,

every day and in emergencies. Implementing solutions such as:

  • Video Surveillance

  • Cyber Security

  • Smart Parking, traffic and lighting

  • Evacuation planning

  • Access control/Human mobility

With the right modern security innovations in place, you can ensure safe and secure daily

commuting, shopping and serving – and be prepared to act fast in case of an emergency.

Connected

Separate departments, people & assets continue to intersect to be a more efficient community.

Shared data streamlines community operations while smart connected buildings

create optimal schools, municipal buildings, hospitals and more. Solutions could include:

  • Real-time commuting route updates

  • Shared video incidents

  • Public wi-fi

The resulting connectivity improves citizens’ lives, creates efficiencies, and helps during emergencies.

Communities must be built to last, with infrastructures that serve day-to-day activities as well as emergencies.
Utilize efficient technologies and planned and predictive maintenance,

to build a smart, sustainable community that leverages:

  • Microgrids

  • Workforce development – social infrastructure

  • Emergency preparedness: natural disasters, cyberattacks or other hi-impact events

The right technologies can help communities continue to evolve & adapt– operate and deliver services at their highest capacity.

Energy & The Environment

Reducing energy and raw material consumption and forward-looking resource management are among a city’s major concerns. Smart supply and disposal systems are just as important as process driven changes, technological developments and networks for energy, mobility, infrastructure, and buildings. Smart grids, for that matter, are a step towards smart energy consumption: intelligent networks and monitoring systems are put in charge of energy generation, storage, and consumption. Smart meters are installed to make actual energy consumption more transparent.

Economy

Smart economies actively support education, qualification, research and entrepreneurial spirit, innovation, productivity and flexibility. Continuous knowledge acquisition and transfer, as well as local and global networks are the main ingredients for creative output. Enterprises offering IT, environmental and energy services in particular, considered the driving force for smart economies.

Mobility

Smart mobility means innovative traffic and transport infrastructure that saves resources and builds on new technologies for maximum efficiency. Accessibility, affordability, and safety of transport systems, as well as compact urban development are essential factors in this context. New user-friendly facilities will make it easier for people to switch to integrated transport systems focused on environmentally friendly transport modes. Joint utilization, i.e. “car sharing”, instead of private ownership is what counts these days when using motor vehicles.

Governance

Smart Governance promotes both, changes in governance and coordination processes, and planning processes with public participation. The administration encourages cooperation among municipal organizational units and is opening itself up to a wide range of players from business, research, civil society and other local authorities. Projects in their implementation stage increasingly rely on cooperation among the above. Public digital data are widely accessible to allow for more transparency and enable people to participate in decision-making processes.

Society

Increasing people’s quality of life requires more than technical innovations. Also, and above all it is the social dimension that needs to be taken into account. Civil society must be actively involved in making smart cities become reality. The main focus must be on education, lifelong learning, culture, health, safety of individuals, plurality of society and social cohesion. Urban everyday life provides sufficient leeway to promote people’s creativity and competences. Networking and self-management are major pillars of society without which smart cities would be doomed to fail.
