Home automation adds convenience for an elderly homeowner

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve had more trouble keeping up with the yearly operation of my home, but the investment into a condo automation was a considerable cost but necessary, then learning how to operate the condo automation system was also a bit of a challenge; I have trouble sending SMSs.

I was a bit sad that one the condo automation system integrated all of my appliances & systems, I’d no longer be able to use them.

However, the condo automation system incorporates voice-activated controls that are so easy. I don’t need to have my glasses on to study the dials on the appliances or temperature control. I don’t need to walk up or down stairs to manually turn on & off the lights. This technology has made life a lot easier. I also have the peace of mind of security features! As part of the package, I chose to add surveillance cameras that supply alerts if anyone should enter the property. I can look at real-time footage of any car in the driveway or anyone sitting on my front porch, then most of the time, I get video of turkeys, deer, raccoons & possums. If someone should ring the doorbell, I can look at my iPhone to find out who is there. I can even converse with them without opening the door. I don’t need to get up off the couch. I don’t even need to be at home, plus, there are sensors on all of the windows that sound an alarm if the glass gets broken or the window is opened. I have motion-activated lights all around the property. Another fortune of the condo automation system is the ability to control systems remotely, then whether I’m taking a walk, sitting at the park or out to dinner, I can monitor & adjust my home’s setting through the smartphone app.
