We provide independence to the elderly and people with disability and peace of mind for caregivers.
Knowing a loved one can be kept safe and still have their independence, gives peace of mind all round. By designing and installing smart assisted living for disabled and elderly clients, we can keep them safe in their homes and alert caregivers if assistance is needed.
There are many smart assisted living solutions we install, here are some of the solutions we install for our clients.
As we get older, more visits to the bathroom needed, especially at night. To help prevent feeling around for a switch in the dark, a soft night lighting mood is automatically brought on when the person gets out of bed. This ensures that the way to the bathroom is well lit – reducing the risk of a fall.
The presence of a person can be monitored through the uses of a Presence Sensor and/or Door & Window Contacts. If no activity is detected for a certain period of time, an emergency call will be made to a relative or carer using the Caller Service.
Elderly people can often live alone. In the event of an emergency, it’s crucial that they have the ability to let people know as quickly as possible. A wall switch can be used as an emergency button – installation in every room will ensure that there is always one close.
An oven or iron accidentally left on can result in a fire. Electrical devices can be monitored and, if necessary, be automatically switched off. For example, if it has been accidentally left on, the hob can be turned off once Night Mode has been activated.
If the emergency services ever need to be called, it can sometimes be difficult for them to identify the exact apartment or house in question – then even once they have, gaining entry can be difficult. We can help here by flashing the lights and automatically unlocking the front door if an emergency button is pressed.
You can set individual temperatures for different rooms – this is done on a schedule so rooms are only heated when they need to be. For example, the bedroom is only heated throughout the evening and night as it is unlikely to be used during the day. This can therefore help to reduce energy bills.
The overall air quality can be monitored and controlled – this means temperature, humidity and CO2 levels. Meaning that the perfect room climate will always be maintained.
If an elderly relative accidentally gets locked out of their home a family member can remotely open the door for them at any time via remote control. In addition, you can give access codes to trusted neighbours.
Family members often worry about their elderly relatives’ safety. One of the biggest concerns is a potential burglary or a fire. A Smoke Detector and Presence Sensor in every room help to monitor the entire building. If there is a break in or smoke is detected, the alarm is sounded and relatives are immediately informed.
We often shy away from talking about our own medical issues. A Smart-Home system can be used to recognised behaviour changes, such as a significant increase in visits to the bathroom. This information can be passed on to a doctor/carer so they can talk directly with the person – rather than them having to recognise the changes themselves.
When leaving a room, the lights are often left on by mistake (this one is by no means unique to the elderly). To prevent this from happening and to reduce energy costs from wastage, the lighting is automatically switched on when presence is detected and then switched off when you’re done in that room.
Older people often have to take medication, which is obviously very important for their well-being, on a daily basis. To help in keeping to the routine of taking the required medication, A text-to-speech function can play a reminder at a certain time every day.
