New digital social care alarm to help support UK’s ageing population
Technology enabled care (TEC) specialist Doro has launched its next-generation social alarm, Doro Eliza, which offers a safer and more secure everyday living environment for vulnerable adults.
Doro says its new digital alarm will support the UK’s ageing population alongside the switch from analogue to digital telecare services by 2025.
Unique and versatile, Doro Eliza is a smartcare hub for the home that is designed to deliver the best possible security and reliability to users, alarm receiving centres and service providers alike. It aims to raise the bar in TEC by taking advantage of the capabilities afforded through today’s digital networks.
“Feeling secure in your own home shouldn’t be a luxury – it should be a given. Technology has so much to offer in this respect and we see our role as constantly developing and exploring the opportunities technology offers in order to increase the security of both seniors and their relatives,” says Carl-Johan Zetterberg, CEO of Doro.
Doro Eliza is based on the latest 4G technology but also connects to other digital IP networks. Easy to install, the telecare device supports HD audio to ensure good sound quality. The alarm can also be integrated with other services, such as smoke detectors, fall sensors, security cameras, and pill dispensers.
Carl-Johan continued: “Doro Eliza is a smart hub for technology enabled care with a clear focus on the social alarm element. Eliza will continue to be developed, adding new functions and enabling integration with future technologies. Our extensive experience of developing social alarms means we know what is required and what our users want. Security and safety are our priority at all times, making Doro Eliza an extremely reliable solution.”
Telecare services are procured by local authorities and housing associations which provide personal alarms and peripherals for their local residents. Doro says its new alarm is a future-proof product that will be continuously developed to incorporate new services and functionalities.
In November 2020, Doro launched an innovative new service – ‘Response by Doro’ – as part of its mobile phone division to give users instant access to support in the case of an emergency.
