There are a lot of misconceptions about wellness solutions and why people would need them. Most people think it is just the old “I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up” emergency pendants that help initiate help in an emergency. Today, however, wellness solutions encompass many sophisticated smart technology solutions that work together to increase independence, safety, comfort, and peace of mind for every member of the household.


Personal Emergency Response Systems, or PERs, are small devices that can be worn and activated in an emergency. While in the past they have been used primarily for wellness monitoring of aging adults, today their use has expanded to many other applications.  Here are just a few of the ways PERs is making life easier and improving safety and wellness:

  • Used as an emergency device for children and adults with disabilities to increase safety.
  • For aging family members that are frequently alone. 

Motion Sensors Aid in Wellness      

Motion sensors are another non-intrusive solution to help provide an additional level of care. Well-placed sensors can work together to provide a safety net that alerts you to abnormal activity, or lack of activity, or keeps track of normal activities such as eating, bathing, or taking medications.

Home Automation and Smart Security in Wellness

Home automation solutions such as smart lights, smart thermostats, smart locks, and more are more than just convenient. They are also very helpful as wellness solutions. By using smart and enabled electronics and lighting, you can seamlessly control the atmosphere for those with sensory issues. Smart devices can also be controlled remotely so you can ensure that an independent loved one is not forgetting to adjust the thermostat and prevent them from being exposed to extreme temperatures. 

Home automation is also beneficial for anyone with any type of mobility difference, making it faster, safer, and easier to manage a host of household tasks. Tasks such as locking doors, closing the garage, answering the door, turning off appliances, monitoring video surveillance, and more can all be done remotely via an app. 

Home security technologies such as smart locks allow you to ensure that the house is secured for the night. Video surveillance systems can give you a window into daily activities that can be accessed remotely. Together, these tools provide insight into the status of loved ones and a way to unobtrusively provide additional care that all of us need.
