Our Assistive Technology sensors and equipment are tailored to each individual’s needs, enabling them to remain safe and independent in their home. Devices link to a 24-hour monitoring centre who provide an emergency response to any alarms raised.
The sensors and equipment around your home will be based on your specific needs and will help you to live safely and independently helping to manage potential hazards.
The sensors can detect situations that may be dangerous or uncomfortable, alerting our response centre so they can trigger an appropriate response to any of the following:
- Flooding from overflowing sinks and baths
- Fire risk from unattended cookers
- Gas leaks, smoke and unsafe levels of carbon monoxide
- Epileptic seizures
- Leaving the home
- Doors that are left open
- Extreme heat or cold
- Getting up in the night
They can also provide reminders and prompts to offer medication support, keep the home safe and alert you to as well as preventing hazards.
