Independent living for all
Ambient Assisted Living
Ambient Assisted Living Features
Our systems can detect if there’s been no activity in a certain room for a period of time. If this happens then a family member or caregiver can be sent a notification.
To ensure that no crucial medications are ever missed, we can have an announcement read out over the speakers in the home at set times throughout the day.
Emergency Call Buttons
We can set up dedicated buttons which can be pressed in the event of an emergency – these can be installed on the walls, placed on tables or we even have wrist-worn buttons.
Electrical Device Monitoring
Potentially dangerous electrical devices such as ovens, irons, and straighteners can be monitored and even automatically turned off after a set period of time, to avoid any accidents.
Ensuring that lighting is automated, reduces the need to walk over to a switch. This makes life much easier when you can’t move as freely as you used to. Plus lights can be used as alerts for those who are hard of hearing – e.g lights can flash when someone is at the door.
Our systems allow entry to the home with a code, which reduces the chances of getting locked out. Plus, if the code is forgotten, a family member/caregiver could even open the door remotely if needed.
Help for Emergency Services
If emergency services need to be called, it’s important they access the home as quickly as possible. To help with this, the lights can flash and the front door can be automatically unlocked when certain alarms are triggered.
Family Alarm Alerts
Great for use in care homes
Naturally, AAL systems work perfectly in care homes. However, here the benefits also extend to the members of staff. As our systems are automatically taking care of a wide range of things such as raising the blinds, switching the lights on, ensuring that the heating is at the perfect temperature, etc. a little bit of the pressure can be taken off of the caregivers. When spread across multiple rooms/homes, these time-savings can be significant and allow carers to focus on more important things.
Plus, as falls and alarms will automatically be flagged to them, they can have the added peace of mind that if they’ve not heard anything everything is most likely okay. We can even monitor carer response time, if needed. For example, we could install pressure pads in the beds and monitor external door handles to measure how long between a resident getting up unexpectedly and a career arriving. Having this information can help improve the overall care response and is great to have to reassure family members.
