This article covers several smart living room features useful for family members or friends - and that focus on "challenges" of particular relevance to people as they age.

In the living room, the smart home features we are gravitating toward are more about "enhancing life" than "overcoming challenges".

Here are the key smart living room features:

Entertainment: Better TV, Consolidated remote Controls; Automatic Music, Video, Photos; The Amazon Echo Show also makes a great couch-side device offering music and family photo slide shows.

Socialization: Zoom, Alexa Calling, and Photo Sharing - all on the big screen TV; If you find that you aren't going out as often as you used to, there still are great ways to keep in contact with friends and family.

Safety: See who is at the door; smart door locks; Smart locks and Video doorbells can be both labor-saving devices and enhance safety.

Automating Lighting, Shades, Fans; and Fireplaces; Smart locks and Video doorbells can be both labor-saving devices and enhance safety.

Daily Activities: Reminders for various things: Most of us could use some reminders of daily tasks. This is especially important for a loved one with memory loss.
