Abstract: ICT technology has seen a widespread influence throughout the globe. It has become a crucial element in safety and security. According to the United States census bureau of 2017, it is estimated that, by 2030, the world’s population will be around 8.5 billion. It is also estimated to rise up to 9.8 billion and 11.2 billion by 2050 and 2100 respectively. More than half of humanity today live in urban areas. A large number of cities are witnessing a significant growth of rural citizens moving to urban areas in search of better lifestyle and opportunities, education and a quality of life. As a consequence of this, cities’ are expanding beyond their limits in their infrastructural, security and service sectors to adapt to the overwhelming surge of rural migrants. And this comes with a cost, which is the increased complexity of providing an easier way of life. This has led to cities adopting modern tools of ICT to become Smart Cities capable of adapting and allocating the incoming migrators, as well as increase the quality of life. The paper will explain the definition of smart cities, their opportunities and challenges with tools that include: Smart homes, Smart energy grid, Smart retail and Internet of Things. The study defines the essential elements that comprise smart cities. It will, therefore, aid governments in decision-making when it comes to initiating smart city projects.
