There have already been two editions
The first edition was part of the trade show for
personal services at Lille Grand Palais in 2011. A
dozen partners around the CITC prepared the first
demo of this kind in the region. It was on display
for two days (from 13 to 14 May 2011) and raised
the awareness of 2,000 visitors of the issues
around tomorrow's housing.
Opened on 22 November 2012 by Fleur Pellerin,
Martine Aubry, Dominique Bur, Pierre de Sainti-
gnon et Akim Oural, the 2nd edition of the Smar-
tHome was on display for 20 months at EuraTech-
nologies and raised awareness among more
than 4,500 people.
This edition enjoyed excellent press coverage.
The SmartHome 3.0 is an invitation to live
fully immersed in the home of the future, a
world of discoveries where technological
innovations are at the service of humankind
and respond to its essential needs: auto-
nomy, wellbeing, social ties, ease of use,
responsible energy management, etc.
It is a full-scale demo dedicated to promoting
innovation in smart, sustainable and creative
housing. A modular, scalable space that is a
repository for the latest discoveries of tech-
nological uses and innovations at the
service of the resident. This project com-
bines themes of technological innovation,
sustainable development, life cycle analysis
and social innovation.
It is also a place to promote the expertise of
cities, regions and nations, and an educatio-
nal tool for the area.
Third edition: stay tuned!
The third edition has the ambition of responding to the major issues around tomorrow's homes and neighbourhoods.
These issues include: responsible energy management; accessibility and autonomy; convenience; social ties, espe-
cially the community dimension of connected neighbourhoods; services of daily living; solidarity; ageing well; access to
culture and leisure; and household budget optimisation.
SmartHome 3.0 by CITC is a testing ground for partners' projects and a laboratory for uses in which new products and
uses may be tested in order to quickly benefit from feedback. This home with an area of more than 90 sq m is on display
in the EuraTechnologies Atrium.
All furniture is modular and adaptable. It was
specifically designed to integrate technological
innovations by offering simple, intuitive visualisa-
tion of information.
You will discover the different apps for the Smar-
tHome 3.0 by CITC described below :
Opening of the SmartHome
When an individual attempts to enter the Smar-
tHome 3.0, a smart access system detects and
manages access rights to the home based on the
profiles authorised for entry. The door opens auto-
matically, rendering the SmartHome acce ssible to
people with reduced mobility.
The bike ride
The resident can partly power their home by
pedalling a power-generating bike. To make for a
pleasant experience, the bike is connected to a
platform of geo-tagged videos displaying different
routes that pass before the resident's eyes based
on the speed and rhythm of their pedalling.
The DashBoard is an interface and management
tool for all the home's information services. The
information offered includes: rubbish collection,
citizen info, neighbourhood info, the market, the
neighbourhood Twitter feed, a participatory
citizenship social platform, sensor information,
energy consumption in euros and units, energy
production in euros and units, mean neighbou-
rhood consumption, and temperature control for
the different rooms. The DashBoard can be
accessed from a coffee table, TV or tablet.
The Cooking Ideas app, connected to the living
room DashBoard, displays the resident's stock of
food products. The app offers recipes based on
the products available, resident profiles (diabetic,
vegetarian, allergic to gluten, etc.) and expiration
dates. After choosing a recipe, all the resident has
to do is drag and drop it in the "Let's cook!" area.
The recipe will then be sent to the Smart Cooking
app in the kitchen.
Lectura Club is a new smart device that lets you
share your library with your friends and access
your friends' books to promote swapping, sharing
and bonding over books. The app is also connec-
ted to the catalogues of nearby libraries so that
the resident can conduct a search, find out
whether or not an item in the catalogue is
available and recommend it to a relative or friend.
The resident also has the option to leave their
reviews of the works.
The Table Fantastique
The Table Fantastique app lets them discover the
local scene. This app is based on a new concept:
every month, the city's multimedia library sends its
subscribers, based on their preferences, flyers
inviting them to learn about one or two local
artists. The resident then places the flyer on the
Table Fantastique and can listen to one or more
excerpts of music by the artists.
The magic mirror
When the resident picks up their toothbrush, the
mirror identifies them and displays information
related to their profile and interests (sports scores,
traffic information, weather forecast, etc.). A
three-minute counter starts when the resident
picks up their toothbrush to encourage them to
brush for this period of time.
The smart flow meter records the flow of water
used in the shower and displays it on the
SmartPharma is a device that helps the resident
take their medicines as prescribed. The device
sends an email or text message alert to the
resident's carer or a member of their family if their
medicines are not taken. Thanks to a smart pres-
cription system, the prescribed dose can be ente-
red simply by scanning it on the device –

Aquaponics: an expression of a sus-
tainable life cycle
Aquaponics consists of vegetable farming in
"symbiosis" with fish farming. In a SmartHome, it
consists of an aquarium in which the water is used
to water a grow bed. This system is automated
and requires very little maintenance. A display
summarises the plants' state of health, harvest
dates and conditions (temperature, etc.). A social
dimension is added to the system.
The SmartShopper app lets the resident prepare
their shopping list based on the chosen products,
mode of transport, price, goods, weather forecast
and weight of the shopping (burden). It offers the
optimal solution(s) to do the shopping. The
resident can then load the list, as well as discount
coupons and offers on select products, on their
smartphone. The app suggests to the resident
that they add regularly used pr–oducts, products
needed to prepare recipes selected in the
Cooking Ideas app and staples (salt, butter, etc.)
to the list.
The Nao robot, a useful companion in the home, is
an interface between the SmartHome and the
resident. It can trigger activities at the resident's
voice command (example: switching off the
lights). It can answer the resident's questions
about the weather forecast and the stock of food
products-. It can also alert the resident to risks and
malfunctions in the home.
La cuisine +
Again in the interest of the home's accessibility
and security, the devices in the kitchen adapt to a
resident's profile based on biometric recognition
(-for a child, stores of hazardous products are
After selecting a recipe using the Cooking Ideas
app, the resident receives step-by-step support in
preparing it. The app also displays the recipe and
checks whether all the required ingredients are
properly laid out on the worktop. The preparation
of the recipe can then begin: the resident views
the steps one by one. They can navigate with a
