Elderly care crisis means more will have to depend on technology to live in their own homes
More research is needed to develop technology to help elderly people live independently as the country faces a significant shortfall in unpaid care, according to the London School of Economics and Political Science research.
The proportion of older people in the population is rising while traditional caregivers – mid-life women – will be placed under increasing pressure to juggle work and care for their parents. The situation could leave up to 160,000 older people in England vulnerable in the next two decades, says the research.

I put a comfort system into my mothers house many years ago.

The set up has many useful features:
- self arm (yes arm not harm !) the system will arm its self to away mode after a period of inactivity.
- after a period of NO MOVEMENT on the landing the system dials out.
- dial out for power cut
- dial out for panic alarm pendant (can be placed around neck and lets you know when it is horizontal)
- dial in so you can speak through the keypads.

I'm sure that there are a multitude of other thing we could have it do.. Any suggestions!

Hope this helps

suggestions
when motion is detected at night in certain areas, turn on the lights and auto switch off later

Use logic to automatically switch on and off t=the lights in the toilet based on the door being latched and internal motion
