Falls can have dramatic consequences. It is impossible to completely eliminate the risk of falling, but healthcare professionals agree that precautionary measures, including adequate lighting, can greatly reduce the environmental factors that cause falls.
Unfortunately, lights that are difficult to use or located far from the entrance of rooms present as many dangers as they prevent, and the natural changes in the sight of the loved one can aggravate the problem. According to the American Foundation for the Blind, older people need three to four times more light to perform intensive tasks such as reading, sewing and writing. In addition, they may need more time to move from darkness to bright light and vice versa.
Intelligent lighting systems can use the existing wiring of traditional switches and dimmers and replace them with smart lighting controls, allowing the lights to be grouped together or creating "scenes" according to the owner's needs. And when embedded in a voice-activated device like Amazon's Alexa, they can easily "ask" for a room to be lit so they do not fumble when trying to find switches in the dark, increasing the risk of injury.
