Article Summary: 

Advancements in smart building design and technology have significantly improved the home living experience, with most developments focused on the interior of homes. However, the next step is to apply these technologies to outdoor spaces like balconies and terraces in condominiums. Sustainable living technology is becoming increasingly important for condo buyers and owners. Balconies and terraces are an essential part of condo living, and incorporating technology can enhance their safety, comfort, and enjoyment. Solutions include retractable screens to mitigate wind, decking and wall systems that capture sunlight for energy, and noise attenuation devices to reduce urban noise. Technology can also improve gardening with closed-loop irrigation systems and enhance ambiance with low-voltage LED lighting. Visual and spatial modeling technology can simulate balcony upgrades before construction, helping condo owners make informed decisions. While not all technology is available yet, sustainable technology products and services are on the horizon, promising a more comfortable and beautiful outdoor living experience for condo residents.
