Recognising that silver care is a sunshine sector, Nest, a division of Google that sells home automation products, is venturing into senior living products. According to a report by CNBC, Nest has been approaching senior living facilities and spaces in the US to pitch for incorporating its devices and products. These include motion sensors and lights to enable easy navigation at night, sensors to preclude dehydration from walking around in excessive heat, fall prevention mechanisms, and cameras and smart locks to enable safe and independent living. Today, as the report tells us, there are 1 million Americans living in assisted-living facilities and the number is expected to double by 2030. Investing in this space, then, makes great business sense. Smart
