4 Notable Home Health Automation Trends to Try
We Share the Top Wellness Trends, Inspired by CEDIA 2019 and More
All around CEDIA this year, we saw wellness. From the Delos wellness pavilion showcasing their Darwin system to the soothing lighting automation in Lutron’s experience center, health, whether mental or physical, permeated the expo floor.
At Home Theater Technologies, we look forward to seeing the technology we provide enhance our customers’ daily lives. The EPA estimates that humans spend about 90% of their time indoors, so we think it’s imperative to strive for a healthier life at home. Keep reading to see how home health automation could boost wellbeing within your Hurst, Texas, residence and which updates will might need. You’ll thank us later!
Automated Health Care Monitoring
Home health automation gives caregivers of children, elderly and disabled people real-time insights into the person they’re assisting: If someone falls, your system will send an alert to your phone. Also, voice control provides people with mobility challenges some freedom to operate integrated devices, like temperature control and lighting, no movement needed.
Will doctor visits become obsolete soon? It’s not likely, but home health automation has already helped detect certain health risks. Manufacturers are developing devices that automate health data, so you get real-time findings that you can store, send to your medical provider and compare to future measurements. Stay tuned for updates!
Air Quality and Temperature Control
Air quality controls rank high on our list of essential home health tools, but many people ignore this feature in lieu of flashier home technology like massive TVs or even circadian lighting. Why? Simply put, you can’t see air quality. However, the wellness emphasis has refocused on devices that purify the air of major pollutants, including dust, chemicals and excessive moisture.
Similarly, temperature controls support your home’s comfort level. Consider zoning your climate management so various people in your home can enjoy the temperature that best supports their needs while minimizing disagreements about how hot (or cold) your home feels.
The effects of using proper illumination, inspired by the sun’s changing brightness levels and tone throughout the day, have been documented for several years now. Perhaps responding to smart home users’ praise for lighting control’s effects, several more lighting companies cropped up this year with demos.
As always, Lutron’s exhibit stunned guests with a “day in the life” approach to any lighting need you’d use in your home. We saw how a resident could wake up, relax, draw the shades, showcase art, throw a party and everything in between. Similarly, Vantage showed off several light settings that felt remarkably appropriate to each situation, from “Homework” to “Goodnight,” all powered by EasyTouch Glass modular keypad.
If you want a room to retreat, mimic Delos’ brilliant wellness booth, where guests enjoyed zero gravity chairs, weighted blankets, eye masks and soothing music. You can implement this concept in a dedicated relaxation room, or even convert your multi-use media space to wellness retreat; lighting control, surround-sound speakers and relaxing visuals can create similar effects.
