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.
