For a person with mobility issues, many of the tasks required for daily life are a struggle. Home automation can be a life changer in providing disabled and elderly individuals more time to live independently. The professional team at Accurate Electronic Interiors can work with you to design a home environment that allows those you love to feel more self-reliant, happy, and confident. Here are just a few examples of automated systems we provide:
Automated Lighting Controls
Imagine hearing an unfamiliar sound in the hallway and not being able to get out of bed quickly to turn the lights on. The inability to turn lights on and off easily can be frightening, frustrating, and cause a person to feel trapped. Installing automated lighting is one of the easiest ways to create greater convenience for a person with mobility issues. By using a simple application on a mobile device, any light—whether inside or outside the home—can be turned on and off with ease.
Automated Window Coverings
Not only can it be difficult for those with mobility issues to get to the windows, but it can be extremely unsafe for a person to try to get up out of a wheelchair or let go of one side of a walker to reach up to open or close the blinds. With today’s automation technology, anyone can easily open and close window coverings just by using an application on a mobile device. Elderly and disabled individuals can live more safely, and enjoy an environment with daylight or darkness as they choose.
Automated Music and Video
Having music fill a home with in-wall speakers can create a joyful ambiance sure to lift anyone’s spirits. For those with mobility issues, automation allows music or talk-radio to be turned on or off without leaving bed, that comfortable recliner, or maneuvering a wheelchair. Easily accessible volume controls allow those who may have hearing difficulties to adjust the sound without having to move.
Television and home movie automated solutions can make access to entertainment easier and more enjoyable. With controls all easily accessible from a mobile device, its simple to go from watching the evening news to a nostalgic western movie. For those with mobility issues, it means being able to watch what they want when they want to.
Without being able to move freely and quickly, it is challenging to see what’s going on outside a home, who might be trespassing on the property, or if its safe to open the front door. Surveillance cameras can be accessed easily from a mobile device. For a person with mobility issues, the ability to view what is going on outside the home and knowing whether or not emergency services should be called can create significant peace of mind.
