Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools, and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!  
Looking for a way to access your smartphone and control your environment?  Check out HouseMate!  HouseMate is a combined hardware/app solution that allows switch users to fully control their iOS or Android device.  It also enables them to control other appliances in their home or work environment.
Users can operate HouseMate with its built-in switch, or they can connect up to five external switches.  Or depending on the make and model of their wheelchair, users may also have the option to control the app with their wheelchair's joystick.
