Is Home Automation a Solution for Seniors?

Aging in place is popular for more and more elderly people, and modern technology is making it easier. If you have an elderly relative who wishes to remain at home for as long as possible, you may want to consider installing some home automation upgrades. Far from being difficult to control or understand, your smart home features will provide safety, security, and convenience to your family member. Let’s review some home automation features that are suited for seniors.

Web Monitoring

You may not have the time in your schedule to physically check on your elderly relative in person, every single day. With web monitoring solutions, you can wirelessly check on your loved one, from the comfort of your home or office. Web monitoring systems can automatically track your relative’s activities, and can also automatically check to see whether doors and windows have been locked and secured properly.

Voice Controls

Seniors who experience limited mobility may have trouble navigating their homes after dark. The chances of slips and falls increase dramatically without proper indoor and outdoor lighting. When you install a home automation system in your loved one’s home, you can include voice controlled lighting that can be turned on from any location in the house.

IFFT Programs

IFFT stands for “If This, Then That,” and this type of programming can be used to keep your elderly loved one safe when he or she is home along. Using an IFFT system, you can receive alerts when the home’s security system is activated or an exterior door is left ajar. A home automation technician can also program an IFFT system to respond to vocal or physical cues from your family member.

From wireless security cameras to climate control and more, we offer a range of systems that will be perfectly suited for your home.

Home Surveillance Cameras

Imagine being able to see exactly what is going on at your home, no matter where you are. With home surveillance systems, you can do just that. We can help you select and install wireless security cameras that allow you to monitor your home inside and out. Use the cameras to see who is at your front door, even if you’re not there, or check the exterior of your property for everything from storm damage to potential intruders. Use your interior cameras to see if your kids have arrived home from school safely, to check in on your babysitter, or simply to ensure that everything is as it should be. Live video feeds from your cameras mean you always know what’s happening in real time.

Surveillance Alerts

Your home surveillance system can also be set up to send you alerts whenever there is something on your property you need to know. You can receive an alert any time a car enters your driveway, opens a door to your home, or even stands too close to your swimming pool. Your TVTI expert can help you set up the alerts you want and help you choose a system capable of analyzing your camera footage in real time.

Remote Activation

Have you ever spent the day wondering if you locked your door or set your home alarm? With a smart home security system, you don’t have to worry. You can lock your door and set your alarm from anywhere, using your smartphone. This is also a great way to avoid handing out keys to workers in your home. Simply unlock the door when they arrive and lock it behind them when they go.

Is Office Automation the Secret to Attracting Top Talent?

Generation Z—people born in the mid-90s to the early 00s—are flooding the job market. Is your company ready to attract the top candidates to your business? This group of job seekers has different motivations than previous generations and are more likely to care about whether your office automation system is up to date than what kind of paycheck you’re offering. Here is a look at what these workers are looking for in a career and how your company can attract talented team members from this group.

Generation Z in the Workplace

One of the defining characteristics of this generation is that they don’t remember a life before the internet. They grew up with smart technologies at their fingertips, and the ease of access to everything these technologies offers is an expectation of this group. A survey conducted by Adecco Staffing and reported by HR Review found that only 6% of Generation Z-ers named salary as the leading thing they are looking for in their jobs. Instead, they prize software that improves their work experience and the ability to move forward in their careers quickly. They also want the ability to work from different locations, rather than sitting at a desk all day, and to collaborate with co-workers and clients in different settings. They also appreciate the ability to work remotely.

Office Automation Solutions

To attract top-tier talent from Generation Z, you need more than a good salary. Your office should be outfitted with the very latest in automation solutions to make the workplace comfortable and engaging. Everything from automated climate control systems to lighting that can be adjusted from a digital control panel will make your office a better work environment. Providing employees with tools like Wi-Fi operated locks makes it easy for them to have flexible schedules. Office automation technologies can entice Generation Z workers by giving them what they want in a job.

TVTI can help you make your workplace Generation Z-ready with office automation tools in Chicago. Let one of our smart technologies experts help you select the right automation for your company’s needs. Contact us today to get started by calling (312) 265-3760.

The In-Wall Touchscreens You Never Knew You Needed

One of the benefits of using home automation is that you can control systems in your house from anywhere, right from your smartphone. When you’re at home, however, in-wall touch screens ramp up the convenience of smart home systems. Here is a look at why you should insist on in-wall touchscreens as part of your Control4 installation.

In-wall touchscreens can be mounted throughout your home so that you’re always close to a control panel for your home automation system. From your in-wall touchscreen, you can do everything from change your lighting to check on your baby and lock your doors. The touchscreens come in seven and 10-inch designs with high-resolution displays and thin profiles, so that they blend sleekly into any room.

Talk to your home automation experts at TVTI to see if Control4 in-wall touchscreens should be part of your automation design in Chicago. Get answers to your questions today by calling (312) 265-3760.
