Independence. Sounds like common good right? ‘Till you get older and/or need help with daily tasks. Something as simple as closing the curtains can suddenly become a huge undertaking. Unfortunately, standard electrical aids are often quite expensive and not very flexible when it comes to controlling them or integrating them in another system. Home automation on the other hand is not only reasonably priced, but also offers many personalized and integrated solutions. When it comes to semi-independent living, home automation puts the emphasis on ‘independent’, and not ‘semi’.
Are you a parent trying to create an assistant living complex for your child via a foundation? Or are you working for a healthcare facility and looking for new possibilities to create the best possible dignified care for your clients? Perhaps you need more help yourself, but would like to be able to live independently as long as possible? Home automation offers more possibilities than you might think, with highly personalized solutions tailored to the needs of the user or care giver.
There are already many – electronic – aids out there. Downside of these standard aids is that they are often quite expensive and only work stand-alone. While it would be so much more convenient when you can not only close your curtains and shut off the lights, but also see who’s at the door, all by just using your phone. Without the need to have a different controler for each of these systems and the need to take out a second mortgage just to be able to pay for it all.
For assisted living facilities home automation can provide extra safety when combining electronic aids with a camera system. Like with an epilepsy mat. This way you not only ‘just’ get a warning but can immediately see on your phone what’s going on. Wandering clients? Connect a motion sensor with a camera system. So, when the backdoor open after 10 pm, you immediately see who enters or leaves the building. Especially with assisted living or 24/7 care home automation can really add value.
Home automation offers endless healthcare solutions. Even when it’s never done before. If a current aid is electronical, it can often be made ‘smart’. Like we did with the epilepsy sensor mat of a client.
