For very many people, home automation is far more than a gadget. It provides various useful – sometimes indispensable – services to people that are less autonomous. There’s no reason the elderly or disabled can’t remain in their homes with the new advances in home automation technology. The purpose is to create an environment that is easy and safe to live in, giving them the ability to remain in their home for as long as possible and you the ability to monitor home care professionals that are taking care of your loved ones. For example, motion sensors detect activity in the house. In the case of an abnormal lack of activity, a message can be sent to anyone relevant (next of kin, neighbors, care staff, etc)… Reminders can be set so your loved ones remember to take their medications on time… In some parts of the house, the light comes on automatically when people pass or at specific times of the day… The entire system can be managed through vocal controls or with a touch screen, even from a wheelchair.
