Helping people live smarter lives.
SmartTown is a movement dedicated to applying large-scale smart city technology to smaller mixed-use community developments.
Welcome to SmartTown, USA
A Competitive Edge
A partnership between P3 Advisors and Layer 10, we look at the role and application of technology differently. Our design-first, people-centered, product-agnostic approach ensures we avoid the typical one-size-fits-all approach. For us, the role of technology is simple – to help people live smarter lives.
Designed with Purpose
Nothing is designed into our developments without a well-defined purpose. Facilitated discussions around a “day in the life” of each stakeholder group allow us to think first about how the space is going to be used, without getting bogged down with considerations of specific technologies.
Once an experience is mapped, we then consider the role of technology in creating or enhancing these experiences. With the technology design defined, we engage the marketplace, identifying products and partners to help us deliver it. This product-agnostic approach allows us to deliver a best-in-class solution independent of any individual vendor’s vision.

Creating a Smarter World
A smart city collects data from interconnected devices and sensors to improve services. The data helps administrators gain valuable knowledge to guide their efforts to optimize operations, better manage resources and improve the lives of residents.
Scaling Smart Cities
Smart cities rely on data collected from devices connected to the “Internet of Things.” Simply put, the Internet of Things consists of all of the devices that are connected to the Internet in some way. These can range from smart phones, computer networks and remote sensors placed in a community to monitor traffic patterns and energy and water usage to more mundane devices such as smart refrigerators, wearable devices and headphones.
When gathered and analyzed, this data provides administrators with valuable insights into how best to manage their communities and highlights areas for improvement.
SmartTown leverages smart city technology on a smaller scale to greatly improve digital inter-connectivity and quality of life for town workers and residents.
