Smart solutions to make homes more accessible and daily living easier.
Solutions for Disability
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.
Limited movement or coordination Tasks such as turning the lights on, opening blinds or adjusting the temperature of an airconditioner can be automated or triggered with voice control.
Sensory impairment Intercom systems can assist with identification of visitors before allowing access and remotely opening doors. Audio systems and text notifications installed in key areas of the house can be linked to doorbells and phones allowing a visual alert in place of the traditional sounds.
Cognitive impairment Families and caregivers can discretely monitor their loved one’s safety while home automation systems assist with carrying out day-to-day tasks.

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

Both professional and enthusiastic about the multiple installations involved with this job, Doug and the team at Intelligent Home are not only supportive of our goals as an organisation, but demonstrate a huge amount of passion for what we are trying to achieve, and the people whose lives we are trying to improve. Intelligent Home premium products and services facilitate homes that provide greater independence and control for people with a disability, and we are delighted to be working with them across a number of Disability Accomodation developments.
I just wanted to thank you and your team for the job they have done. I know it has been quite a task in getting it right and also right for me. But now the doors, fobs and curtains are working I feel safer in my own home and able to manipulate my world with much more ease. I know it wasn’t easy getting here so please pass on my thanks to Brad, Jon, the electricians and team.
Thanks so much for the recent upgrade to the security system in our son’s home. As you are aware he is a vulnerable adult with an intellectual disability living in his own home. The upgrade to perimeter security has meant that he is safe guarded while at home. The external video surveillance cameras and the video activated door bell has given us the ability to know who comes and goes to his home without intruding on his privacy. This has been a life changing experience for us all and all monitored through the easy to use app.
Very highly recommend Doug at Intelligent Home (and the entire I H team) for the high level communication, respect and understanding, knowledge, and attention to detail. Many thanks for your ongoing services!
