We are seeing that more and more of the elderly and people with disabilities leading independent lives. It’s therefore hard to see them being disillusioned when they feel their safety has been compromised by one unfortunate event. By installing smart home technology, particularly smart security, our loved ones can feel empowered to once again lead a safe and independent lifestyle.

 

Here’s how smart home security can provide you and your loved ones with the peace of mind knowing that they are safe.

 

Smart Cameras.

A smart camera can be used in two ways. One, to keep intruders out and two to ensure the safety of your loved ones. Simply have the app installed on any Android or iOS device to view the live footage.

 

By placing smart, wireless and solar-powered cameras on the perimeter of the property, the camera will notify you of any motion detected, this is a good way to determine if someone is a guest or an intruder. Good places to have them mounted include, the front and rear entry to the property, as well as the driveway and any windows on the side of the house. By choosing solar-power panels means that you will never have to worry about recharging the battery again.

 

Placing cameras in strategic points inside the home, your loved ones can be easily monitored to ensure their health and safety at any given time. These points can include hallways, entry and the living room. By opting for two-way communication cameras, it allows your loved ones to let you know if they have had a fall or require assistance.

 

To store the footage, opt for ones that allow you to save to a memory card on the camera or a subscription-based cloud service. By choosing the cloud, your footage can be stored for a number of weeks. This varies according to the brand or camera you buy, for example, Reolink offers Reolink Cloud for free for 7 days of recorded history or a paid subscription for 30 days.

 

Smart Door Locks.

Smart door locks offer an array of convenience to your loved ones. It provides ease of access by giving a completely keyless entry for those with issues such as arthritis or other impairments which makes turning a key a difficult task. Simply provide them with a fob card attached to their wallet or phone or for those who are tech savvy, access via smartphone Bluetooth. Keys can be a thing of the past, and thus leaving you without the worry of someone losing the keys.

 

Smart door locks also provide convenience. You can provide time-sensitive access codes to those that are regular visitors, such as carers and family members. It means that access can only be gained through allocated times and prevents the loss of spare keys. Access can also be provided on a permanent basis, allowing them to enter the house at any time of the day or night.

 

There are many types of smart door locks, from ones that can only grant access via a Bluetooth app, to ones that can be remotely controlled via wifi, Z-Wave or Zigbee. An example of a Bluetooth smart lock includes Igloohome. For those wanting remote control, Danalock is available for connectivity via wifi, Z-Wave, Zigbee and Apple HomeKit.

 

Smart Door and window alarm sensors

Installing smart door and window alarms sensors, allows you to have better oversight of your loved ones. This tool is perfect to monitor any unusual activity within the house. Install the relevant app and you will be able to see when and which door or window was opened. You will also be notified as it happens. For example, trying to open a window when it’s raining early in the morning or opening the front door in the middle of the night. Install your sensors over every window and on over front and rear entry doors. These sensors should work together with your smart cameras.

 

Smart Trackers

Smart trackers are a simple solution to help find often misplaced or lost items. Simply attach the tracker to an item, whether it is the keys or a wallet and download the app onto an Android or iOS device and it will then begin tracking. This will certainly make finding the lost item easier and stress-free for all involved. Trackers for keys include the Chipolo Key Tracker and for wallets, the AirBolt Shield. Both of which are Bluetooth enabled and come with a loud ringtone of over 90dB to help with tracking it even faster.

Smart technology

Smart technology gadgets are another great tool for those with limited mobility. It provides a bit more independence from helpers in what may seem as simple tasks. These include:

- Smart cleaning robots. These help keep the floors free from crumbs and debris.

- Voice control speakers and hubs with Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa to add items to a shopping list or find out what the weather is.

- Smart lights. Lights that can be set to turn off at a particular time each night. This feature is helpful for those who forget to turn off lights before heading to bed or to make going to bed safe and accident free.

 

With the myriad of the availability and choice of smart technology, it is important to ensure that your loved one understands and can operate the basic functions of your chosen smart devices.
