Having an automation system installed for my mother

My mother is eighty-two years old and still quite independent. She lives on her own, volunteers at the library and regularly has lunch with friends. She has no problem driving to the grocery store, mowing her lawn and keeping up with daily tasks. Even though she is sharp, strong and healthy, I worry about her. I typically stop in and see her everyday and always text her at bedtime. For peace of mind, I invested into an automation system for her home. There was initially a bit of a learning curve for my mother. She set off the alarm several times. However, she has gotten accustomed to the operation and features of the automation system and loves it. She likes that she no longer needs to remember to adjust the thermostat before leaving for the day and never arrives home to an overheated or chilly house. She also appreciates that the lights automatically turn on for her, the garage door goes up and the doors unlock. I like that there are surveillance cameras keeping watch over her property. The automation system includes security and safety features such as motion-activated lights, glass breakage sensors, carbon monoxide detectors, moisture sensors and smoke detectors. My mother gets an alert whenever anyone pulls into the driveway and she can see who it is without opening her door. If anyone enters without permission, an alarm sounds and the local authorities are dispatched. Plus, my mom has access to a panic button that immediately sends help her way. The automation system was a very good decision.
