As we age, life can get more challenging in a lot of ways. Smart home lighting can improve the quality of life for seniors by automating lighting controls and by putting them at their fingertips. This is especially important for people with mobility issues or declining eyesight.

With Switchmate, seniors get the security and convenience of smart home lighting without the hassle of complicated and sometimes rewiring and installation. That’s why we’ve been having such huge success selling Switchmate to people 50 and up.

Switchmate can be used on any standard light switch. Please consider these highlights:

–Lighting controls are now at your fingers via your smartphone (iOS and Android), making it convenient for those people with mobility issues. You don’t have to get up from the sofa or bed to turn lights on or off.

–If declining eyesight is a challenge, seniors can turn their lights on and off via timers or set the light to turn on via the “welcome home” feature (which senses the sync’d phone via Bluetooth and turns on the lights so they come on when you enter the home.)

–Switchmate magnetically attaches to any standard light switch (rocker or toggle) immediately and syncs with the Switchmate companion app. 

–Switchmate requires no configuration — it just attaches to the metal screws that are already there! So consumers can avoid the dreaded configuration, installation, etc. This means even renters in apartments and condos can use it since it doesn’t change the residence or have to be permanently installed.

–It doesn’t require WiFi, now smart lighting is opened up to a much wider group of consumers who don’t have WiFi in their residence.

–Unlike most smart lighting products, Switchmate still allows customers to use their switch their light on and off manually when that’s more convenient. 

–It’s super-affordable at only $39.99.

Switchmate is selling at many national retailers including Amazon.com, Bed Bath & Beyond, HSN, Fry’s Electronics and Target. By late October, Switchmate will be available in over 10,000 retail store fronts in the U.S. and Canada.

For any “Spring Cleaning” or “Spring Allergy” features that might be in the works, please consider the Oskar Little and Anton humidifiers from Stadler Form.

The Bathroom Sink

Some say it’s the most wonderful time of the year, but let’s be real… it’s the most stressful time of the year.

There are holiday parties to get styled for and lots of shopping to do. Not to mention, you have family coming to stay with you for a whole week, which means it’s also time to clean the house.

Then you realize you’re out of hairspray for the holiday party, you haven’t made the slightest dent in your gift list, and there’s no shampoo or hand soap in the guest bathroom for your family to use.

It’s a good thing that The Bathroom Sink can now come to the rescue this holiday season, because no one wants to spend their free time shopping for things like soap, toothpaste or shampoo.

For a super affordable $3 monthly membership fee (or a $36 annual fee), you can have your own bathroom concierge – a personal bathroom planner that will help to simplify your (or a loved one’s) life. The best part? Your toiletries are priced competitively, as there aren’t any hidden costs or mark-up fees. Now this seems like a pretty sweet holiday gift idea if you’re looking for one!

The idea for The Bathroom Sink was born when CEO Joe Doucett ran out of toothpaste in 2014. This new online service keeps track of your toiletries so you don’t have to, and so you’ll never run out like Joe did. Its prediction software anticipates when your lotion, toothbrush, soap or dental floss need to be restocked.  

Once the software recognizes that you have about three to five days before an item runs out, you receive an email asking if you’re ready to replace your bathroom necessities; you then click the product reminder and are instantly taken to Amazon to checkout. Your Amazon cart will be filled with items directly from The Bathroom Sink, which put you well on your way to being replenished with all your favorite bathroom essentials.

College students, busy families, and Baby Boomers who care for their elderly parents all find this service to be especially convenient, saving them time and money.  


Anomia is an easy-to-get-started, challenging-to-play card game that can be quite addicting.  Anomia’s fast pace will bend your brain and make you laugh. 

Anomia is available at Amazon.com and Target, loved by for all ages 10+ and would make an excellent stocking stuffer or present priced under $30.00.
