Make Med­ical Alerts a Pri­or­i­ty

For the senior’s ongo­ing safe­ty and for your peace of mind, try to make med­ical alerts a pri­or­i­ty when review­ing sys­tems. The lat­est secu­ri­ty solu­tions can be designed to alert you via your phone when a senior expe­ri­ences a med­ical event. The senior might also wear a bracelet that alerts med­ical teams with­in their area to a poten­tial med­ical event.

Review Remote Con­trol Options

With the inno­va­tion in secu­ri­ty sys­tems tech­nol­o­gy in recent years, it has become eas­i­er for seniors to get away on vaca­tion while ensur­ing their home and prop­er­ty is safe. To ensure the prop­er­ty is com­plete­ly secure and to empow­er seniors with a sense of com­fort while going on vaca­tion, make sure they can review their home remote­ly via tablet or smart­phone. Try to ensure the remote con­trol sys­tem is as intu­itive as pos­si­ble to mit­i­gate usage issues.

Help Alle­vi­ate Stress by Automat­ing Home Process­es

Seniors often face a num­ber of issues mov­ing around their home and in man­ag­ing their dai­ly home main­te­nance require­ments. For­tu­nate­ly, a num­ber of lead­ing secu­ri­ty sys­tems are now pre­sent­ing ways to auto­mate many home activ­i­ties. For exam­ple, the lead­ing secu­ri­ty solu­tions can auto­mate the process of set­ting the alarm code for the home. They can also be pro­grammed to keep the home at a spe­cif­ic, com­fort­able tem­per­a­ture to ensure the opti­mal home con­di­tions.

Include Motion Sen­sors

Anoth­er key fea­ture with­in mod­ern secu­ri­ty tech­nol­o­gy is motion sen­sors. These sys­tems can be used to detect any form of move­ment out­side the prop­er­ty and, if required, quick­ly alert the police to a poten­tial break-in sce­nario. Because seniors are not always able to react quick­ly when there’s a poten­tial threat, motion sen­sors should be used to ensure the home­own­er has addi­tion­al time to deal with a poten­tial threat to their prop­er­ty.
