Preparing for the Future…
We’re already designing and imagining how to include sanitization in our smart homes.
By combining hidden TV mechanics and Ultraviolet sanitizing bulbs inside the hidden space where the TV would normally rest, we can create a simple but effective program to sanitize your home automatically.
If you’d like some help imagining just how we could hide those Smarthome Ultraviolet bulbs check out our other blog article “20 ways we do TV”
Ultraviolet Disinfection Kills Over 99% of Bacteria, Viruses, Corona Virus and Mold Spores.
A study of 21,000 patients who stayed overnight, found that sanitizing a hospital room with UV light, cut transmission of drug-resistant bacteria by 30%. This is partly because Ultraviolet light can effectively sanitize hard-to-clean nooks and crannies. Ultraviolet light also works by destroying the DNA of pathogens, which makes it effective against “superbugs.”
But this broad-spectrum light is also a health hazard and humans cannot be in the room when it is used. Paring its use with an automation system that can utilize occupancy sensor data from the alarm system can completely automate the process.
