Problem Description


Having the right lighting in the right place at the right time is a very important detail for both safety and quality of life. Think burglars, or being able to read, for example.

But some older adults, as they become forgetful, or develop mobility issues, can end up with the lights turned off when they should be on, or the wrong lights for the “job at hand”. We wanted some “smart home” solutions that can help with this.

In some situations, the goal is “safety”, and in others the goal is “better quality life”, or reduced “effort”. Below are some solutions.
