How Home Automation Helps People Age in Place



Various smart home technologies can help seniors live comfortably, independently and safely, no matter their ability. This is definitely something you should consider investing in when it comes to mobility remodeling. Read on to find out how smart home technology helps those who are aging in place. 

Smart Home Technology Supports Aging in Place

People with mobility issues and seniors can benefit from smart technologies, such as smart lighting, locks and thermostats. You can access these products through smart devices, no matter where you are. Many smart home systems can also adapt to your preferences and adjust according to your needs. 

In a recent study, researchers surveyed remodeling contractors about which home automation products are typically used in aging-in-place renovations. Popular products include technologies to monitor safety and security, climate control and lighting, and electric and/or shade controls. According to remodelers, homeowners most often install these products in the living room, kitchen and home office. 

Find a Reliable Contractor for Your Mobility Remodeling Project

The success of your remodeling project depends heavily on your contractor. You want to work with professionals who can assist you in making your living spaces safer and more accessible. One of the first things you should do is to research. Look up “mobility home remodeler near me” online, and you will see a list of contractors in your area. You can also ask your family, friends and neighbors for recommendations. 

In addition to price, consider each prospective contractor’s experience and the quality of the products they are offering. Many contractors have websites where you can find out more information about them and view photos of their previous projects. Also, read customer feedback and check their status on the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website. Be sure to hire a company with proper licensing, insurance and bonding.
