Intelligent devices are more than fancy gadgets; for the elderly, they also offer the promise of freedom. Advances in home automation products are making it easier to feel safer in our homes, automate routine tasks, and help us gain insight into our behavior.

Meanwhile, environmental sensors, like carbon monoxide detectors and automated stoves, can alert caretakers to potential hazards—even from afar.

You may want a handheld, tactile remote to enjoy your video experience in the living room, a touch screen with a large display in the kitchen to browse and play music throughout the home, a keypad next to the garage door that allows you to shut the entire house down with one touch as you head out, and a smartphone or a watch on your wrist to offer insight to what is going on at home while you’re away.


Speech-Enable Your Home and Expect the Unexpected!


If you've heard about VoicePod - the new device from HouseLogix that adds voice recognition to Control4 - it's easy to imagine situations in your home where having completely "hands-free" voice control of lights, temperatures, and security could be handy.
