Smart homes / AT
In the general area of home automation (domotics), there are many technologies available at a mature stage of development which have been tested. However, their implementation in homes, both those being built and those already built, is limited and there has apparently been little direct attention to supporting independent living of older people through these technologies. The promotion of useful applications of domotics is being addressed in the efforts of various associations, such as CEDOM and ASIMELEC through the Smart Home Multi-Sector Commission, with the aim to facilitate the installation of domotics and for it to be both useful and in demand by users. Web portals are also appearing that are specifically directed towards the Smart Home Sector, such as Casadomo.
More advanced Smart Homes only exist in the form of pilot projects, one of which is in Madrid.
