What is a Smart Home?
A Smart home allows individuals to control appliances, thermostats, lights, and other devices remotely using a smartphone or tablet connected to the internet.
Smart homes may include enabling technologies, assistive technologies, and durable medical equipment (DME). All of these provide individuals with disabilities the opportunity to be more independent in their homes and/or receive remote support from family members or caregivers.
Enabling technology is any technology that helps an individual gain or achieve independence in their home, community or work environments.
Smart Home Features
The Smart Home site at Bethany Children’s Health Center features a living room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom, showcasing enabling and assistive technologies and how to use them in each space.
Enabling technology allows individuals to control appliances, dispense medicines and monitor for health alerts. The technologies also help individuals manage their safety with items like video doorbells, induction stovetops and grab bars. There is also task assistance software to help people with disabilities gain greater independence in managing their daily life.
The Smart Home demonstration site is available to any Oklahoman who wishes to learn about enabling technology, assistive technology and home modification to help people live safely and independently.
