Going Touchless | Renovation Tour

June 25, 2021

We’ve all come a long way during this pandemic which has forced us to adapt in order to keep ourselves, our families, and our communities safe.

Halting the spread of COVID has become the planet’s number one priority. The good news; while we wait patiently for the mass distribution of the vaccine, there are ways we can pitch in to stop the spread of COVID in our homes – by going touchless.

Touchless technology has been in use by public facilities for many years and it was only a matter of time before it became available to homeowners.

Touchless Kitchen 

Hands-free faucets and soap dispensers are a quick and easy upgrade that provide immediate results in reducing the spread of germs.

Many touch-free soap dispensers don’t require any installation. You can buy these now and set them atop your counters right away and enjoy the immediate benefits of this portable technology.

Just add the quick-and-easy installation of a touchless faucet and you’re good to go.

Touchless Lighting

Faucets and soap dispensers aren’t the only things that can go touchless—lighting can too.The lighting in your home can be controlled either with motion sensors or timers. For example, you can use timers to turn the lights on and off according to your family’s schedule, or more simply, use motion sensors that “know” when to turn the lights on and off whether the room is occupied or unoccupied.

Hidden Functionality

Thankfully, the smart devices that control the touchless upgrades can be kept out of sight in most cases and the sensors required to monitor motion are small and wireless which makes them easy to place in strategic locations that don’t affect the aesthetics of your space

From the Ground Up 

If you and your family are planning a new home build, you may want to consider going touchless. We can help you design a touchless home from the start that makes use of cutting-edge advances in voice-controlled, motion-controlled, and app-controlled solutions.

A new home build is incredibly advantageous in this regard; electricians can wire the touchless technology directly and with ease, into your new home during the construction phase.

Doing What We Can

Even though there is no way to fully guarantee zero transmission of germs with 100% effectiveness, every effort to reduce the spread of germs contributes to the community as a whole.We’ve been busy installing motion-controlled technology to help reduce the spread of COVID across Ottawa and we can help you do this too. Amsted Home Care is here to assist you throughout the process.

Stay safe everybody. The end of COVID is in sight.
