How A Wheelchair User Lives Independently Through Technology

Whether you believe technology is enhancing our lives or taking them over there is no doubt about the benefits it can have on those who have a disability. Technology has changed the game in the tech, automobile and sports industry so why not housing?

At Automated Door Systems we believe in creating a fairer society for disabled individuals. We work to provide people with disabilities access to the latest technologies.

Take a look at how one of our clients with a disability lives independently through the use of technology:


Our team received an initial referral from Southwark Council for a female client who is a non-verbal, wheelchair user. Her main source of communication is through email and via laptop notepad for face-to-face conversation. 

She needed adjustments made to her home that would allow her wheelchair access and security. So, what could we do to help?


The client’s home was already on the ground floor with an external entrance door so instead of replacing the whole unit we added a fully automated system. The low energy overhead door opener made sure the door opened and stayed open for a desired time (a choice between 10 and 60 seconds) before self-locking and the high security motorised multipoint lock made sure it met the police initiative for security. 

What’s more is that now, our client never has to worry about reaching those hard to get places with her door being operated through the use of a key fob.

The client’s windows are now being operated through wireless wall switches. All work was done to enhance existing products in the home.

Not only did we want her to feel safe with the quality and installation of her door but we took it that one step further and installed a wireless colour video phone system for added security.


Our team is committed to an ongoing pledge to support social responsibilities and initiatives.

Automation technology is on the rise and we want to be at the forefront of implementing this technology for the people who need it most.
