How Technology Keeps Us Safe

by Sarah Allen

In an ever-changing world full of technology and new age ideas, one thing that will never change is the need to stay safe. Thankfully, there are a number of resources that are designed for our modern, constantly evolving society and the new hazards that often come along with it.

This is why Nucleus and have teamed up to create an infographic that highlights some of the most innovative and technologically advanced products that can help keep everyone in the family safe in a world defined by the “Internet of Things” and smart homes.

Your Kids

Keeping your family safe is a top priority, and new technology is here to help give that peace of mind, including wireless security systems and safe driving apps. There’s also the amount of exposure kids have to new technologies, who often know how to use them better than their parents. Fortunately, there are now easy ways to control what kids can see or do on their devices.

Your Aging Loved Ones

For seniors who did not grow up with the technology their kids are so used to, there are products being designed with their changing lifestyles in mind — including medication management software and emergency response devices.

 When it comes to the fun activities of and engagement in everyday life, items like a home intercom system can keep families connected to one another without having to hassle with other apps or programs that come along with smartphones, giving the peace of mind to family members that their parents or grandparents are safe and doing well.  

 A home intercom and monitoring system would also be very helpful in remotely taking care of an aging loved one who may suffer from a condition such as dementia when relocation isn’t possible. In the initial stages of dementia, forgetfulness starts to become prevalent, but having the ability to keep your loved one engaged and constantly communicating can be of great benefit.

Your Pets

Most families consider their pets to be as much a part of the family as anyone else, which is why their safety is also a top priority. Thanks to technology, keeping your pet safe is easier than ever. For example, there are now countless ways to spy on your pet while you’re away, making sure they don’t get into any trouble.

Or, if your pet happens to escape your yard and run away, you no longer have to staple a picture on every telephone post in the neighborhood thanks to new tracking microchips and GPS trackers.
