Smart home automation

Technology can help those living with disabilities and the elderly to retain their freedom without sacrificing their welfare. Unfortunately, many Surf Coast and Bellarine homes were not built to integrate technology. However, with all the advances in smart home automation, an experienced residential electrician can retrofit your home to suit your needs. 

What is Smart home automation?

From motion-sensor lights to video doorbells to controlling heating and cooling with the push of a button – smart home automation isn’t just for the “techie” people anymore. Over time, smart home automation has become simplified. Nowadays, you can control a home with one remote.

If you or a loved one is interested in having your home automated, you should consider a few things when deciding which smart home technologies to install.

1. Needs

When considering the best options to automate your home to assist either you personally or a disabled or elderly relative, it is best to look at things that provide ease of use. 

  • Do you struggle to get up from a chair quick enough to answer the door? A video doorbell may be a perfect addition so you can see who is there. In addition, a keyless entry lock allows caregivers, cleaners and family members easy access to your home when needed.
  • Do you wish lights came on automatically when you enter a room? Motion-sensor lights throughout your home can help. 

There are many solutions to assist you or a loved one in living independently in their own homes. 

2. Usability

Technology is great if you know how to use it. Whilst there are many unique smart gadgets on the market, it is best to select items that you or your Nan understand how to operate. Thankfully not every smart device for your home needs a tablet or smartphone to work, so there are options for those who aren’t techie.

3. Budget

Smart home automation does not have to cost an arm and a leg. It’s important to note; you do not have to upgrade everything in your home at once. Try out some automatic lights, add some lighting to areas for more visibility or add a video doorbell so you can see who is at your door. Look for the additions that would allow more freedom for you or your loved one. Remember, smart technology can be tailored to suit your needs and budget.
