Home automation allows you to automatize many processes. A movement sensor will automatically switch on the light as soon as a resident gets out of bed at night. Is the bathroom occupied? A light at the room door warns visitors to await until the user has finished before entering the room.
Curtains can also be opened or closed automatically. When there is too much sunlight entering the room, home automation will automatically lower the sunblinds. Is a resident leaving the room? A simple press of the all-off push-button will switch off all lighting and appliances in that room
Optimizing care provision
Home automation will also support supervisory tasks. Does the hall sensor detect movement at night? The system will warn the staff so they can check it out. Opening and closing front or inner doors at a distance might be useful to assure increased vigilance when dealing with people suffering from dementia.
Home automation offers many possibilities, even in the health care sector. Automatizing processes not only enhances comfort, it also helps carers to spend more time with the residents.
