About the project
The ‘SmartyourHome’ project has two strong motivations that relate to the needs of older adults:
1) Older adults are largely excluded from lifelong learning, as specific training for senior citizens is only offered in urban areas, if at all. However, older adults live everywhere.
2) Smart home technologies and services can be of particular benefit to older adults if they are used in a target-group-oriented manner.
The project combines both motivations: Older people will be enabled to understand the characteristics and possibilities of digitisation using the example of smart home concepts and to use them actively. This should enable them to remain autonomous in their own homes as long as possible.
