How Home Security Systems Help Seniors

Today's seniors are staying in their homes longer, creating new challenges for both them and their families. Fortunately, technology is making it easier for seniors to live out their days at home while their children can use electronic monitoring systems to ensure their safety, health and well-being.

There are a variety of systems which allow for family member to monitor a senior citizen in his own home.

Alarm systems. Today's systems can provide a number of services and options. Be sure to look for a home alarm system that provides monitoring services so the senior has access to outside help in case of an emergency. Not only does this include notifying police in case of break-ins, it also includes alerting the fire department and medical help in case of a medical emergency. Go online to compare alarm systems, features and prices before purchasing.

Family members and the senior can either opt for signing up for a third-party monitoring service or self-monitor. By self-monitoring, a family member can choose to be notified when there are problems at the senior's home. The family member can then choose whether to take care of the issue or notify the appropriate services.

Motion detector systems. Other options for the senior home include a variety of motion detector systems. These systems also vary. Basic motion systems allow family members or a monitoring service to monitor the movements of the senior from one room to the next. More advanced systems provide more detail about the senior's movements and activities throughout the day. For example, these systems provide information such as when doors or cabinets are opened, when the refrigerator was opened and what time the senior got into and out of bed. This information is sent out via e-mail, text or voice mail to a family member. Go online to research which of these features suit your situation.

Other systems. Technology is helping seniors and family members with a variety of problems. For example, several electronic medication dispensing systems are now available. These systems help remind the senior to take medication with beeps and flashes. Once the senior has opened the dispenser, the dispenser can notify a designated family member that the medication has been taken. Go online to research the different electronic pill dispensers available.

As parents age, the parents and children are faced with the question of how best to keep the parents in their home. Before purchasing any security system for seniors, talk to them to find out how you can best provide a safe environment for them.

Today's technology is helping parents and their children maintain a safe home that everyone can live with. Be sure to go online and find the products that will help your seniors live a long, healthy and safe life.
