“A health-enhancing home should be one that takes care of any and all environmental factors for its occupants automatically so that occupants’ physical and mental health can be maximised. To do this, a well-designed smart home should consider factors such as lighting, air quality, temperature, humidity and acoustics.” states Matt Emberson, Sales and Marketing Director at Faradite.

From Steps to Slumber

Wearables are becoming increasingly popular among health-conscious individuals, and for good reason. These devices can track everything from steps taken to sleep patterns, providing valuable data for individuals looking to improve their health. When integrated with smart home technologies, wearables can be used to create personalized wellness routines that meet individual needs.

For example, a wearable like Fitbit can track activity levels and sleep patterns. Similarly, Apple Watch can track heart rate, which can be used to adjust the intensity of a workout routine. With Apple Fitness+, the native workout app for Apple Watch, you can stream trainer-led workouts on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV and watch the stats appear on your wrist.  By integrating wearables with smart home technologies, homeowners can take their wellness routines to the next level.

Sleep is a crucial element of wellness, and home IoT products can play a key role in promoting healthy sleep habits. By intelligently controlling lighting systems, these products can help stabilize circadian rhythms or sleep cycles. For instance, lighting can adjust itself to amplify the effects of dawn, or dim naturally into a fade at night to ease the mind into sleep. This crucial feature benefits everyone from infants to those struggling with insomnia and many more, making it an essential component of any home wellness system.

Additionally, wearables can also be used to monitor the health of seniors, allowing caregivers to keep track of their well-being from afar. This can provide peace of mind for family members who may not be able to be physically present at all times.

Aging Gracefully

As the population ages, creating safe and comfortable living environments for seniors is a top priority. Smart home technologies can help seniors maintain their independence and provide peace of mind for caregivers.

Smart home features such as automated lighting, temperature control, and security systems can all be used to make life easier for seniors. For example, motion sensors can turn on lights in a room when someone enters, making it easier to navigate around the house at night. Temperature sensors like the Shelly H&T can ensure that the house is at a comfortable temperature.  It monitors even the slightest change in the conditions and will help you prevent dryness or mold. While smart thermostats can adjust the temperature according to individual preferences.

In addition, smart home technologies can also be used to monitor the health of seniors. Wearables can track everything from activity levels to heart rate, while sensors can monitor for falls or other emergencies. Caregivers can receive alerts if something seems amiss, allowing them to quickly respond to any issues.

By using smart home technologies to create safe and comfortable environments for seniors, caregivers can provide peace of mind for themselves and their loved ones. And, with the ability to monitor health and wellness remotely, seniors can maintain their independence for longer.

Sweat it Out

What’s better than a little relaxation and stress reduction in the comfort of your own home? With smart home technologies, homeowners can take their home wellness routines to the next level with features like saunas and hot tubs.

Smart saunas and hot tubs can be controlled remotely, allowing homeowners to adjust the temperature and other settings before they even step foot inside. This means no more waiting for the sauna to heat up or the hot tub to reach the right temperature.

But, home wellness isn’t just for relaxation – it can also have real health benefits. Saunas, for example, have been shown to help with everything from reducing stress and anxiety to improving cardiovascular health. And, hot tubs can help with muscle soreness and joint pain.

By integrating smart saunas and hot tubs into their home wellness routines, homeowners can maximize the benefits of relaxation and stress reduction while also improving their overall health and well-being. True integrated smart home automation for healthy living.

Pump Up Your Wellness

Music has the power to lift our spirits, soothe our souls, and even improve our health. And with smart home technologies, homeowners can easily incorporate music into their home wellness routines.

From streaming music throughout the house to setting the mood with customized playlists, smart sound systems like Control4 make it easy to create the perfect soundtrack for any wellness routine. And with the ability to control the music from a smartphone or other device, homeowners can adjust the volume or skip tracks without ever leaving their yoga mat or exercise machine.

But, the benefits of music go beyond just relaxation and enjoyment. Studies have shown that music can help reduce stress, improve sleep quality, and even lower blood pressure. And, when combined with other home wellness features like saunas and hot tubs, music can enhance the overall experience and provide even greater benefits.

Additionally, with Control4, music can move with you to any part of your property. With one tap on a touch screen, you can access your streaming media library including Tidal, Spotify and more. Something to suit even the most discerning entertainment enthusiast.
