Home automation assists people with special needs due to injury, disease or old age, allowing them to stay in their homes where they feel comfortable, instead of moving to a costly healthcare facility.
It creates spaces that cater to their particular needs and lifestyles, which gives them the opportunity for independence and confidence.
Smart homes help enhance the quality of life of the whole family and make caring for a disabled family member easier.
