home automation

Smart home technology can help the elderly and disabled maintain their independence. Technology can add comfort, security and assistance and save money whilst allowing people with disabilities and the elderly to retain control of their lives at home. 

Types of home automation

When we speak about smart home automation, it doesn’t mean that your whole home needs to be controlled by one remote! On the contrarily, smart home automation can include adding a video doorbell, installing motion sensor lights or even adding a smart programmable thermostat.

Smart home automation ideas for elderly and disabled individuals

Home automation is an excellent tool for those seeking to maintain their freedom whilst staying alone. There are a couple of smart home products that would benefit older adults or people living with a disability.

Smart doorbell/video intercom

A smart doorbell is a small electronic device with a video camera and microphone connected to your internet. A video doorbell allows you to monitor who is outside your door. Smart doorbells can be activated when the button is pushed or motion censored so you can see who is around. Many feature 2-way talk so you can see and communicate with those outside your home. 

Motion sensor lights

An outdoor motion sensor light illuminates dark entrances, driveways or yards. It helps you see who is arriving at your home at night. Plus, they are excellent deterrents for burglars, and great for extra visibility and protection.

Security camera 

The unavoidable fact is crime exists. Whilst you might think you live in a safe neighbourhood, one cannot be too sure. Installing a CCTV security camera gives you peace of mind that you or your loved ones are protected. 

Smart home installations

Installing smart home features is no longer expensive or challenging as it used to be. Nowadays, smart technology is affordable and more user-friendly than ever before. And for those who experience mobility issues or live far away from family members, smart home products may be a way to maintain their independence whilst staying connected to those who love them. Set up notifications, so you know when someone is at your nan’s door or get more light as you or your loved ones come home at night. 

Whatever smart home technology you require, Smart Green Electrical can assist. We will assess your home and work with you or your loved ones to determine which products would benefit you most.
