Smart smoke alarms
If a fire breaks out at your home while you’re away, you might not be able to do anything about it. That is if you have a standard smoke alarm. With a smart smoke alarm, you can also connect it to your smartphone and receive alerts in the event of an emergency, such as a fire or carbon monoxide leak. The Nest Protect is a smart smoke alarm that shows different colored lights depending on its current condition.
The threat of fire is one that everyone should be aware of and safeguarded against proper detection. With these smart smoke alarms, seniors can ensure they can receive the proper alerting.
These smart heating, ventilation, and air conditioning allow for the temperature to be controlled on a room-by-room basis, allowing residents to feel comfortable all-around their home. Users of the Eco vent line of HVAC systems can save as much as 40 percent of their energy used and let you control the temperature from your smartphone.
Comfort starts with temperature, and an unregulated home can mean a senior can either feel too warm or too cold without any true means of comfort possible. Smart HVAC systems eliminate that worry by providing temperatures that are just right in each room.
Personal emergency response systems
In the case of a medical emergency with no one around to assist, these emergency response systems allow you to signal for help instantaneously. The Bay Alarm Medical and MobileHelp emergency systems have fall detection which works to bring help right away.
A senior living alone can be vulnerable to injury. These personalized systems help make sure that if something does happen, they can receive help as soon as possible.
Should there be any movement around your home, these motion sensors cast lights so potential intruders know they’re been monitored. The MAXSA Innovations Security Spotlight comes with two lights in each set, allowing you to cast light on as much of your home as possible.
By offering thorough light monitoring, motion sensors allow seniors to feel safe inside their homes. While they rest easy, the power light will act as a guard for them. Combined with smart doorbells and security cameras, motion sensors can significantly reduce fears of outside danger.
These various systems provide a great deal of security and a sense of well-being for seniors and their caregivers. If you have an older relative or know of another person who would benefit from this technology, we encourage you to research as much as possible in order to find the right systems for that person. Once everything is properly installed, they and you should be thrilled by the ease it has brought to their lives.
