Smart Home Automation for the Elderly

Smart home technology is becoming more prominent in today’s households because of its easy automation functionality to complete everyday household tasks. All of Atomi Smart’s products can be integrated with voice control, has scheduling capability, and controls all devices from a single app, all of which are valuable for the care and assistance of an elderly loved one.

The Benefits of a Smart Home

One major benefit of smart home systems is that they are easy to install and even easier to use. Atomi Smart’s home systems allow easy control of your lighting, temperatures, smart plugs, and more, regardless of where you are in the world. Smart home automation allows users to check on their smart devices remotely without needing to be in their own homes. Besides convenience, Atomi Smart homes also offer built-in safety features to help make smart products even safer in possibly dangerous situations. Whether the heater has tipped over or appliances are accidentally left on, Atomi Smart keeps safety a priority.
These benefits become even more important when it comes to caring for the elderly. It’s unrealistic for caretakers to be home all the time. In addition, the elderly want their independence so smart home automation makes this possible. Atomi Smart products can adapt according to the schedules and settings inputted on the app or through voice control. For example, smart lights can be programmed to turn the lights off at bedtime or heat a bedroom on colder nights. Atomi Smart devices make life easier and more comfortable, especially for your elderly loved ones who may need assistance

Enabling Voice Control with Alexa or Google Assistant

Providing support to an elderly loved one isn’t just about their safety, but also ensuring that they can live easily and with as much independence as possible. For those who struggle with using a smartphone or buttons on a smart home device, using a personal assistant through voice control eliminates this problem. All of Atomi Smart’s products have Alexa and Google Home voice integration. Use your voice for simple commands such as turning on and off smart lights, brewing a cup of coffee with the Smart Coffee Maker, or adjusting the temperature with the Smart Heater or Smart Ceiling Fan. Using voice commands assures personal independence for the elderly in a way that is easy and convenient. It also provides them with empowerment in knowing that they can control their devices with just their voice.

Providing Independence Using the Atomi App

As we get older, our function and mobility can be hindered, making even the most basic of tasks difficult which can be discouraging. Implementing a smart home system can be a huge asset for daily actions. All of Atomi Smart products can be controlled through the Atomi app, providing extra convenience to the user, including the elderly. Some of the app’s main features include wireless control, scheduling, and voice control. The schedule function allows users to set up weekly or daily schedules that fit their lifestyles. This is beneficial to the elderly who maintain a specific routine throughout the day. Select the days and times that devices turn on or off so that you don’t need to worry about your loved ones leaving devices on accidentally. For example, turning off all smart lights at bedtime. This reduces the need to manually turn on and off devices throughout the day. Wireless control means that you can control and monitor your loved one’s devices from anywhere in the world. By checking in on your loved one’s smart devices, you can ensure that the devices are operating smoothly and that no issues have occurred. This also provides the elderly with easier control over their devices, especially those who may have mobility issues. Controlling your devices through an app eliminates the need to physically go to each device to control them.
It is important to support your loved one to work with technology, not against it. Ensuring your loved ones are looked after and are in control of their lives creates peace of mind in the family. Smart home automation creates opportunities for the elderly to become independent and to be in control of their home in an easier, more efficient way through one central app for all devices.

Understanding the Benefits of Atomi Smart

Atomi Smart Home Automation is there to improve everyday lives from increasing independence among the elderly to peace of mind. However, this does not stop people from being weary and unsure about technology. It is important to communicate the benefits of smart technology to your loved one (providing peace of mind to you while keeping your elderly loved one safe when you aren’t around) to remove any doubts or uncertainties they may have. Carefully explain why the technology exists and why it is beneficial for them to use. It is also important to describe that smart home technology isn’t there to control their lives but to assist them in making life easier. This can be done by showing them how to use the Atomi app, voice control (if applicable), and where the smart devices are located in their home. Implementing Atomi’s smart lights, ceiling fans, heaters, and plugs are just a few appliances that contain many benefits for you and your loved ones to enjoy. When elderly individuals have a full understanding of how to control Atomi Smart’s technology, it can be empowering for them when it comes to taking control of their lives.
