Home technology is improving the security and independence of everyday Australians. Intelligent Home can provide smart solutions to make homes more accessible and daily living easier.
Technology can lend a helping hand and improve the quality of life for people living with disability. Home automation systems that integrate doors, lights, airconditioning and security systems require less human interaction and are sophisticated enough to adapt and respond to the home’s environmental conditions. Automatically adjusting climate control, turning on and off lights at a particular time of day and ensuring doors are locked at night, not only offers convenience but peace of mind for family and caregivers. Control is simplified by using a centralised app-based system that can be used both at home, or remotely by family and caregivers. Devices can be triggered using voice commands, touch and movement sensors to allow for ease of use for those living with disability.
When it comes to supporting ageing family members, you may consider using technology to help them stay in their home longer:
• Your family members want to stay home as they age, but you want the security of knowing someone is watching out for them.
• You worry that something has happened when your ageing family member doesn’t stay in touch.
• You want a safety net for active and healthy ageing family members.
Smart home technology offers solutions for independent living with safety, security and comfort. Monitor your loved-one’s activity, such as how much time is spent in bed, in a favourite chair or out of the house. Using intelligent sensors to track and learn the home’s activities of daily living, a proactive monitoring system can identify anomalies that may signify a problem such as potential illness, falls risk and missed medications or meal times.
