OmniPro II Helps Provide Enhanced Access for Assisted Living Residents
Leviton Security & Automation Installer C2 Automation, was recently contracted by the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) to provide residential automation functionality to six assisted living apartments in Melbourne, Australia.
The facility houses a number of residents with acquired brain injuries and permanent physical disabilities resulting from serious road accidents.
Leviton’s range of integrated automation solutions were specified by C2 Automation to enable increased access and mobility for residents, and higher levels of monitoring and service for carers.
The system provides residents and caregivers access to the complex and their apartment through their iPhone using the Snap-Link app. This can be done from within the complex or remotely if required in an emergency. Residents also have control of various pre-configured ‘scenes’ such as “Arrive Home” – where Leviton’s controller opens doors, turns lights on, adjusts temperature, lifts blinds and logs the event with the caregiver so they know the resident is home.
Personal Carer, Brittany Bosch said, “…the system is very simple for us to use and offers quick and efficient monitoring. The best thing is that it ultimately allows our residents to be more independent.”
Leviton’s OmniPro II controller also offers a comprehensive activity log. In addition to the monitoring performed by carers for safety and security purposes, the system provides valuable insights and data for a study conducted by Monash University in Melbourne on disability care.
