As new technologies enter cities, more population relocates to cities from underdeveloped parts of a state. The increase in population attracts more technology investors into the cities which in turn attract more people into the cities. This is a cumulative process which has raised issues of scarcity of resources and lack of security among the increased population in the urban areas. The concept of smart cities is viewed as a solution to this problem thus enhancing the quality of existing public services. Internet of Things (IoTs) is an approach to build smart cities by interconnecting almost everything and increasing transparency in services.
