Technologies, the industry leading ZigBee (News - Alert) Smart Home
semiconductor/system company, has announced a family of new,
ground-breaking sensor and cloud based intelligent systems for Family
Lifestyle integrated with Social Media.
The first release is a Senior Lifestyle System creating a Social Media
environment with applications on tablets and smart phones, where
children and their elderly parents are automatically sharing lifestyle
information, enabling seniors to feel safe and live longer at home
independently, while their children feel secure that their parents are
This Senior Lifestyle Solution uses small and unobtrusive wireless
sensors to help informal caregivers to keep a caring eye on elderly
family members or friends who liv independently. It was developed for
every family that wants to support and stimulate their parents'
independence - while keeping an unobtrusive eye on their health and
When elderly people live alone and something happens, it can sometimes
take a while before somebody notices.In contrast, intelligent algorithms
can be always on watch to inform family and friends when something might
be wrong. For example when someone fails to return home in the evening,
or when unusual inactivity occurs which could be caused by an accident,
stroke, or illness.
Long term changes in senior behavior can be hard to detect, because they
often evolve slowly, without warnings or big events. The patented
intelligence of the Senior Lifestyle Solution keeps track of the senior
person's lifestyle trends and detects unusual behavior in time to act
before anything life threatening occurs. With the Sensara algorithms, up
to 6 separate life trends can be monitored, based on the privacy
settings that users define. The user remains fully in charge of what
activities the system monitors and what it does not.
Combining advanced home sensors with the convenience of a smartphone
app, it enables caregivers to stay up to date with how their family
member is doing. Safely. Without worry. Without interfering in their day
to day lives.
Irek Karkowski, the CEO of Sensara, spent more than 14 years on
international research on monitoring technology for independent living
