Life with a disability can be challenging, and NDIS participants often have unique needs when it comes to their home environment. Smart lighting can be a valuable tool for NDIS participants who want to enhance their safety, convenience, and independence. In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of smart lighting through the lens of those living with a disability.
Smart lighting can be controlled via a mobile app or voice command, which can be particularly helpful for NDIS participants who have difficulty with mobility and accessing their light switches. Smart lighting allows the user to turn their lights on and off from anywhere in the room or even from another part of the house.
Smart lighting comes with a range of customisation features that can be particularly helpful for NDIS participants. As an example, users can set up custom lighting scenes for different activities, such as reading or watching TV. They can also adjust the brightness and color of their lights to match their specific needs, preferences or requirements in certain conditions. Further information can be found on the features can be found in our information pack.
Smart lighting can be programmed to turn on and off automatically at specific times of the day or via motion sensors in the house. This can be particularly helpful for NDIS participants who may have difficulty getting up or moving around their homes. Smart lighting ensures that the home is well-lit at all times, without the need for assistance from a caregiver or family member.
Smart lighting can be programmed to turn off automatically when no one is in the room, which can help NDIS participants save on their energy bills. This can be particularly helpful for those who have budget restrictions with limited resources.
Smart lighting can be programmed to turn on automatically when someone enters the room or approaches their home. This can help NDIS participants feel safer in their homes and deter potential intruders. Smart lighting can also be used to light up specific areas of their homes, such as staircases or hallways, to prevent falls.
Smart lighting can be a powerful tool for those living with a disability to enhance their safety, convenience, and independence. With accessibility, customization, convenience and safety benefits, it can be a valuable tool for those who want to improve their living environment.
