Smart home technology goes beyond convenience. Hands-free and app-controlled devices can make living at home safer and easier for older adults who have a hard time getting around or remembering schedules.
Smart home technology helps users customize devices based on their schedules and preferences. The best smart tech links devices together into a full network.
Within a network, you can set up automations that trigger devices in sequences. For example, when a motion sensor in the hallway detects movement, it can turn on the bathroom light. Or it can set the door lock on a timer to let a caregiver in.
Whether loved ones live nearby or far away, smart home systems can make life easier for older adults and the people who care about them.
