Exciting New Opportunities for Independence: Generic, “Smart Home” Technology
An explosion of new IoT devices promise to make it possible for individuals with disabilities to have greater control over their own lives. While some of these devices are customized, many others are “generic”, which means that they can be purchased “off-the-shelf”. This often makes them more affordable and easier-to-use.
Generic “smart home” devices can do such things as turn on/off lights and fans, identify who’s at the door and allow entry, control thermostats, make phone calls and more!
This session will focus on defining and learning about generic “smart home” devices as well as exploring funding possibilities.
