As we age, the need for convenience and ease of use in our homes becomes increasingly important. Smart home technology has the potential to make senior living easier and more enjoyable, allowing older individuals to maintain their independence for longer. There are so many ways this innovative technology can make senior living easier, such as automated lights, window shades, door locks, and audio and video systems.
How Home Technology Can Make Senior Living Easier for Your or Someone You Love
The opportunities are endless for implementing automated technology to help older individuals live in their homes more comfortably. For many seniors, getting out of a seated position to turn on a light or close the window shade can be difficult at best. Here is just a sampling of ways smart home technology removes these barriers to independent living:
1. Automated Lights: With smart home technology, seniors can easily control their home’s lighting using simple voice commands or touch controls. This provides sophisticated control to set any mood and offers a means to manage usage and power consumption. Automated lighting can also improve safety by ensuring that rooms are well-lit when needed, reducing the risk of falls and accidents.
2. Window Shades: Seniors can use natural language commands to adjust the degree of daylight in their homes, making it easier to maintain a comfortable living environment. This feature can also help regulate indoor temperatures and reduce energy costs.
3. Door Locks and Home Security: This automation allows seniors to conveniently check the status, lock, and unlock their doors remotely without needing keys or codes. Most home automation systems also offer an opportunity to use surveillance cameras to view who is outside a door or on the property by using a tablet, smartphone, or television. By incorporating smart locks and surveillance cameras into their smart home system, seniors can rest assured that their property is protected and they can safely open the door for friends or family without having to move.
4. Audio and Video Systems: Smart home technology can control various audio and video devices, making it simple for seniors to enjoy their favorite music, movies, and TV shows. With voice commands, they can easily adjust the volume, change channels, or play specific content without having to navigate complex remote controls or apps.
5. Health and Wellness: Home automation can help seniors live a better and healthier life through technologies such as circadian lighting control, air quality sensors, and generative healing music, all orchestrated together by the system. These features can improve sleep, reduce stress, and improve overall well-being.
7. Ease of Use: Today’s smart home technology is designed to be user-friendly and accessible, with natural language voice commands and touch controls that make it easy for seniors to interact with their smart home. Some systems learn from user preferences and patterns, ensuring they become more in tune with the homeowner’s needs over time.
