Benefits of Home Automation & Security to Support NDIS Participants

Home automation and security systems have become increasingly popular as they offer a range of amazing benefits to homeowners. The advantages of these technologies are particularly significant for people living with a disability. In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of home automation and security for those living with a disability. 


Increased Independence

One of the most significant benefits of home automation and security is the increase in independence. Home automation allows individuals with disabilities to control various aspects of their home environment, such as lightingtemperaturesdoor locksgarages, and gate access all with the touch of a button or a simple voice command. For individuals with limited mobility or pain,  this can make a significant difference in their ability to manage their daily routine independently which often leads to improved confidence and a greater quality of life. 


Improved Safety and Security

Home automation and security systems can help improve the safety and security of those living with a disability. As an example, Automated lighting systems can be set to turn on and off at specific times, providing a well-lit environment to move around the house safely. Security cameras can provide an added layer of protection, allowing individuals to monitor their homes from anywhere and receive alerts of any movement as well as siren an alarm if there are any intruders. Video Doorbells and Smart Locks can also let the user see who’s at the door from anywhere and lock/unlock the door remotely for added security and convenience.

As installations for NDIS participants are significantly on the rise, we will be further outlining the benefits of each product through our social media channels on Facebook and Instagram. In the meantime, feel free to check out our product pages or reach out to us directly for further information. 


Simplifying Daily Living

For people living with a disability, there may be barriers to completing everyday tasks. Home automation can simplify these tasks and make them more accessible. For example, smart locks can be unlocked and locked with a mobile device or voice command, eliminating the need to physically get to the door. Automated blinds and curtains can also be controlled with the touch of a button, making it easier for individuals with limited mobility to adjust their window coverings and the list goes on. Accessible Home Automation and assisted living is a goal for us here at Smarter Homes Australia as we continue to build and work with a number of NDIS plan managers and support services across South-East Queensland. 


Improved Energy Efficiency

Home automation systems can also help reduce energy usage and electricity costs. Automating your lights, aircon units and blinds can lead to a significant reduction in your bills and in turn promote benefits for the environment as well. The more we save on energy as a nation the greener our future is in Australia.


Enhanced Comfort and Convenience

As a final point, home automation assisted living, and security systems can enhance comfort and convenience for those living with a disability. As an example, voice-activated personal assistants, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home, can be used to control various aspects of the home environment, such as music, lighting, and temperature. All of this can be installed and set up through us at Smarter Homes Australia which will improve the lives of individuals who may have difficulty physically manipulating switches or buttons.
