1. Personal Emergency Response

Seniors who live independently must have a way to call emergency services in case of a fall or a medical issue. Consider a Personal Emergency Response System to easily summon emergency services. These systems ensure you’re never alone when you need help. Here’s how they work:

Some even allow users to pre-record messages to remind them of important daily tasks, like taking medication or locking up before leaving.

2. Monitored Alarms

It’s easy to relax knowing someone is always looking out for your safety. Monitored alarm services offer the perfect solution for seniors who value their independence and security. When an alarm is triggered, a signal is sent to a 24/7-monitoring center, where operators assess the emergency and dispatch authorities.

3. Video Surveillance

Consider installing a peephole or a doorbell camera. Thieves and scammers target seniors with fraudulent offers just to steal information and scope out the inside of a home. Doorbell cameras make it possible to see who is knocking without having to open the door. This is also beneficial for independent seniors who have limited mobility. Paired with smart locks, doorbell cameras allow the user to see who is at the door and grant or deny access, without having to walk to the door.

4. Mobile Solutions

Typically, we think seniors are less digitally connected than the rest of the population, but more seniors are connected than ever before. Over 40 percent of people 65 and up own a smartphone—that’s more than double what it was in 2013.

Whether you are a tech-savvy senior or a family member looking out for an elder living alone, home mobile security solutions offer power and convenience to manage your security from your smartphone or computer. They let you:

5. Smart Home Technology

Smart home technology makes aging easy by making everyday tasks more convenient and providing opportunities to keep your independence.

Smart lights, locks and thermostats allow you to effortlessly manage all the responsibilities that come with living alone. By simplifying basic household tasks like automatically turning lights off or locking doors, family members and seniors will find comfort knowing household duties are completed.

Stay connected and ensure your independence with smart home technology. Contact a BSG Representative Today to learn more 855-MYSMARTHOME.
