Aging in Place home automation options
Home automation offers options for families when determining to extend the aging in place model for a parent. An aging parent home alone can trigger a call for help if needed with just a press of a single button when assistance in the home is not available. The HAI Panic/Alert Pendant can call up to 8 different numbers, as well as start video recordings. There is peace of mind in knowing an alert system on a handy neck strap can be triggered. Using visual confirmation on remote cameras, determine status of the various functions of the home like lights being on or off, room temperatures at comfortable levels or if a door or window is open can help ease an adult son or daughter concerns especially at long distances.
Home Automation should never be used as an alternative to needed care however it can help with concerns that sometimes determine the choice of remaining in the familiar surrounding of home or a move to assisted living or retirement facilities.
A few cameras in and around the home of an aging parent can give them and you a better feeling of security that can be viewed remotely using DVR functions. Is mom gardening outside or napping in her favorite recliner? Combining cameras with full automation can make a world of difference when deciding between an assisted living facilities or a loved one aging in place in the comfort of a familiar home.
AVSystec Surveillance Camera Systems for the DO It Yourself DIY
Smartphones, mobile phones, land lines, computers and tablets can all be used remotely or within the home. View cameras or check out what lights are on. Would you like to know if the doors are locked? What is the temperature inside and outside the home? Respond to water sensor alerts by remotely turning off the main water shutoff in an emergency!
Automate by time or sensors
Sensors can tell the bedroom lights to turn on to light the way to the bathroom at 3:00AM, the outside lights programmed to turn on at dusk and off at 10:30pm. All the lights can be checked at 11:30pm and turned off, the water heater or softener developers a leak or the back door was left unlocked or open and triggers the system to call you based on time of day/night or length of time open. Open a window and the air conditioning knows to shut off. If the temperature outside is 30F, the temperature inside is 65F and a window is open something is wrong and the system announces the problem then calls you. Triggers can be set up based on parameters that you define.
Independent living is something you or your parent proudly have always done and the thought of relying on anyone for anything big or small can be frustrating at best. We understand the challenges of everyday life are greater as we age however, this can be significantly reduced in an environment designed with aging in place in mind. We create independent living functionality and home control that allows greater freedom, reducing dependency and providing peace of mind for you and concerned family members. For many these alternatives reduce the need for assisted living facilities or a retirement community.
