It’s obvious that our advanced technologies are being applied in some pretty impressive ways. Smartphones help us stay on track, allow us to stay in touch with loved ones, plan dinner dates, play games, and virtually anything else we need to do. Smart cars help us save money at the pump while supporting our environment and allowing us to continue our daily commute in style. Smart houses allow us to control our sound systems, lighting, thermostat, and many other systems remotely. And smart doors open for us as we approach so we don’t have to put whatever we’re carrying down on the ground to open the door. What else can this type of technology do? Let’s look at smart doors by Autoslide.
The Autoslide Automatic Sliding Door System is a revolutionary new product that is designed to be easy to install, easy to operate, and easy to secure. Unlike many people believe, Autoslide enabled doors are very secure and may be locked just like any other door. Some models are operated wirelessly with infrared motion sensors where others include a small key fob remote for easy, hands-free access to your home.
Here are some of the ways Autoslide can help people and pets:
Aging Loved Ones
Our country’s senior citizens are discovering ways to live independently well into their golden years. Smart home technologies such as programmable thermostats, security cameras, and automatic doors help them achieve that goal more easily. They often install grab bars on the inside and the outside of the doorway so they can hold the bar as needed while the door opens and closes itself. They never have to rely on the door itself for stability if they happen to lose their balance or become distracted.
People with Mobility Issues
Wheelchairs and scooters are extremely useful tools for people who have limited mobility. It’s often very difficult for wheelchair bound people to lean far enough to open the sliding glass door without risking balance issues in the chair. Automatic doors are absolutely the way to go to improve the lives of people with mobility issues.
Pets can be quite demanding. Most go outdoors to take care of potty matters, and, if you don’t have a fenced yard, you probably have to get the leash, hook it onto the dog, take the dog out, wait for their business to be concluded, and bring them back into the house. By that time, the pot on the stove has boiled over or the iron has scorched that great shirt you loved. Automatic pet doors are the perfect solution for homeowners who do have a fenced yard. Simply install the pet door kit, attach the small magnetic collar tag to your dog’s collar, and watch the magic happen.
