This home automation bedroom was featured at CEDIA 2012 Expo. The video, entitled, “Home of the Future 2016 – Aging in Place – the Bedroom,” highlights aging in place technology to help seniors, elderly and disabled people stay in their homes longer.
The technology shown here utilizes several technologies that are very useful for aging in place. Including, biometric access control (fingerprint access to open doors … useful for those with dementia that might wander), monitoring whether someone is in or out of bed, security, interactive touchscreens for communication outside of the home, automatic medication reminder, temperature control and more.
It also highlights the ideas of automated emergency unlocking of doors, sensing whether or not the refrigerator has been opened, monitoring blood pressure and weight, and other technologies available now.
