Home Automation

Living with disability poses unique challenges. Today more than ever, home automation technologies (AT or smart home technology) are being used to meet people’s unique situations and abilities. Smart homes are making the lives of people with disability and their carer’s simpler, fuller and more autonomous by maximising their autonomy and privacy. This enhances quality of life makes connecting with others easier and more simple.

Assistive Technology is operated through the touch of a button or voice activation via an individual’s smartphone, tablet or computer. We understand that not everybody needs all levels of automation, therefore each apartment can be customised to a person’s needs depending on their NDIS plan.

All Ability Apartments come hard wired for future smart home automation.

Here are some examples of Assistive Technology that can be installed in your apartment to enhance your lifestyle.

  • Automated lighting
  • Automated heating
  • Automated air-conditioning
  • Automated blinds
  • Automated doors
  • Intercom
  • Emergency calling
  • Ceiling hoist

“Every person living with a disability has different needs. Assistive Technology may be included in a participant’s plan if it is identified as a reasonable and necessary support that meets their needs and supports them to achieve better outcomes in life. Assistive Technology, or AT, as defined by the World Health Organisation, is ‘any device or system that allows individuals to perform tasks they would otherwise be unable to do or increases the ease and safety with which tasks can be performed’”
