Home Automation As An Alternative For Elderly Care

hands-216982_640There’s no place like home! As an elderly person it can be devastating to leave your home, whether it’s your choice or not, to go to a nursing home or assisted living. With all of the advancements in home automation it is now possible for an elderly person to stay in the comfort of their own home while loved ones know they’re safe.

Through home automation, a safe environment can be created so that the elderly can live an easy and independent lifestyle at home. Imagine your lights automatically turn off the minute you leave a room? Or the temperature is regulated for you so it is never too hot or too cold? Or video surveillance so you know who’s at your door without getting up? All of this is possible through smart home technology!

For those that may need assistance, home automation can be set up so they are taken care of. Savant Systems allows you to have full control of your home through a touch of your finger. By pressing a single button the elderly can activate motion sensors or cameras inside or outside of the house and unlock or lock doors to guarantee their safety. Savant’s control system allows temperatures to be set throughout the house and thermostats to automatically adjust based on outside temperatures. Plus, the Savant system has eco-friendly lighting control that saves energy by integrating with motion sensors so the lights turn off when the room is unoccupied. So for the elderly that might not always think to turn the lights off, or might have a hard time getting around to adjust the thermostat, their Savant system will provide the assistance necessary to take care of it for them.

Home automation can provide the peace of mind that your loved ones are taken care of when you cannot be there to take care
of them yourself. There’s no need to fear a grandparent has fallen with no way to get up. Motion sensors can be installed to record activity and security cameras can be accessed remotely to monitor what’s going on in the house so you know your loved one is safe.
