Innovative elderly care devices for personal safety to be showcased at upcoming CES
Senior care technology specialist Essence Group will be showcasing two advanced 5G-connected IoT devices at CES 2021 that aim to keep elderly people safe and connected.
Taking place annually, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is one of the largest global stages for companies to showcase their latest and greatest technology innovations. The show covers a wide variety of sectors including robotics, gaming, wearables, sports technology and accessibility.
CES 2021 marks the first digital event for the influential technology show, which will be taking place January 11-14, 2021.
At the upcoming digital event, Essence Group will be showing how the combination of its cloud-connected intruder prevention and personal emergency response systems provide early insight into how IoT service platforms, on 5G CAT-M networks, can reduce the need for in-home gateways, enabling fast and secure connectivity with services that improve the user experience.
Described by Essence Group as “revolutionary”, the Integrated FogShield is the “world’s first” 5G standalone solution for intruder prevention. The all-in-one security solution addresses the need to actively deter intruders from entering homes and placing people and assets at risk.
The single device includes motion detection, video recording, two-way voice capabilities, and a smoke diffuser that fills a room with a harmless, yet disorienting, smoke that forces intruders out of the premises. Suitable for both residential and commercial buildings, the system can be integrated with existing security systems or used as a standalone solution.
Additionally, the company’s PERS 5G is the first 5G-enabled system for the elderly independent living sector. This advanced gateway provides activity monitoring, fall detection, and voice capabilities anywhere in the home. The 5G technology allows service providers and users to enjoy high levels of dependability and accuracy.
Dr. Haim Amir, CEO and Founder of Essence Group, said: “The innovations included in our Integrated FogShield and PERS 5G solutions provide a first taste of the tremendous opportunities for a new platform of interconnected devices utilising the latest 5G infrastructure.
“We have a track record of providing pioneering solutions that tangibly improve people’s safety, healthcare, wellbeing and, ultimately, peace of mind. We are proud to be among the first to demonstrate what can be expected from a 5G-based IoT platform.”
In July, Essence Group launched a UK-specific telecare solution set, which combines activity monitoring, fall detection and outdoor monitoring to give elderly people peace of mind.
