How will you protect seniors in your life? It’s a subject that can cause a great deal of anxiety and strife in families. Assisted living facilities offer an appealing solution for many seniors, but smart home automation can make independent living comfortable and help with the everyday tasks of home management.
From smart thermostats to light switches that respond to the sound of your voice, here are some smart devices to keep you or your loved ones at home longer.
Door Locks and Security Systems:
Smart door locks and security system technology is at the forefront of the independent living initiative. It’s the top tool to protect your home and give your family peace of mind.
Smart home automation allows your family to monitor entrance activity to your home, so they’ll always know you’re safe. Smart door locks let you lock your door no matter where you are. Give multiple security codes to caregivers and family members so you never have to worry about leaving spare keys or being away when visitors come by.
Most smart doorbells come with video surveillance, speakers and microphones for added protection with home automation. Communicate with visitors from anywhere inside of your home to let them know that you’re available and on your way to greet them.
If you’re hearing impaired, set up vibrational alerts on your smartphone so you’re always alerted when someone’s at the front door. In case of suspicious activity, view and record visitors from your smartphone or tablet.
Smart Home Hub:
Living on your own is simple and convenient with a central smart home hub to command all of your smart home automation. Sync your smart thermostat, entertainment system, light switches and more to your smart home hub to connect all your smart devices to a central all-in-one unit. You’ll be able to control all of your technology from the comfort of your living room or bedroom. Also, easily grant your family quick access to all your smart devices whenever they come to visit.
Enhance the quality of living in your home with a thermostat that learns from your behaviors and gives you remote access. Conveniently pre-program your smart thermostat for when indoor or outdoor temperatures reach a certain degree. Save money by tracking your energy consumption as you go.
While standard thermostats can be confusing or difficult to read, many smart thermostats utilize easy-to-read LCD touch screens. Access your smart thermostat using your smartphone or connect to your smart home assistant for voice-controlled use.
Smart Light Switch:
Don’t worry about fumbling around in the dark. You need to protect seniors from falls, and this is one way to do that. Control the lights in your home using timers or voice commands. You can do this with the help of your smart home assistant or via an app on your smartphone. These devices help shine a light when you need it most, and they can also help cut energy costs. They can even promote home security while you’re away.
