Adapt the security of the house for the elderly
When deciding on a security system for the house, it is very important to take into account the inhabitants who spend their daily lives inside. In CIS Serra we know that each house or family is different and that, therefore, we must adapt the security systems in each situation.
In this article, we will see which are the most important aspects that must be taken into account when securing the house for elderly people. Also, we will see what devices can help while protecting especially those who live alone.
Renovate the house to adjust the most problematic spaces
Rooms like the bathroom or the bedroom have to be adapted as we get older to meet the needs of this stage. That is why actions such as changing the bathtub for a shower or looking for a higher bed, help us ensure comfort and avoid injuries.
It’s also advisable to reorganize the furniture so that there is a maximum of free space between them.
Reorder the drawers
Many times, items such as bedding are stored above the cupboards even if they are used a lot. Put a couple of changes in the lower part and take advantage of the upper space to store clothes for the summer or winter season. Get help from a relative to change the wardrobe, or avoid getting on chairs to get there.
The best security systems
Apart from the alarm system is convenient, especially if you live alone or in isolated houses, to put security cameras.
Security cameras allow us to control non-visible spaces, such as outdoors, more easily. Also, with our application for cameras, you can see them live from your mobile, even if you are away from home. This application can also be used by a family member.
Also, cameras like ours have a built-in detector, so if it is activated and an intruder is detected, the alarm will trigger before they have entered the house.
Another very useful element in the case of elderly or isolated homes is the anti-panic button. This button, if used, sends a direct signal to our central office that will act quickly according to the protocol.

By doing the above steps you can get a more secure house and make both the inhabitants and family members more peaceful.
