New home monitoring system supports independent living for the elderly with detailed feedback
StackCare UK, a next-generation home-monitoring system provider, has launched in the UK, providing a unique level of support to older people living independently and the families that care for them.
Using enhanced AI and machine-based learning, the StackCare UK system provides “exceptional” data and analysis, giving users detailed and accurate feedback on the movements and well-being of their loved one.
The home monitoring system uses wireless smart motion sensors placed in key locations around the home to track an individual’s daily patterns of behaviour. A central hub gathers the data from the sensors, which is analysed and reported back to a dedicated family member (or members) every morning via an app.
StackCare UK monitors activity levels, house temperature and sleeping patterns, quickly learning usual temperature levels and normal patterns of behaviour and alerts families when it senses any changes.
StackCare UK Founder Noel Verbruggen commented: “Increasing numbers of older people want to live in their own homes for longer. However, when an elderly parent or relative is living alone there is often a worry among their children and family as to how they’re actually getting along day to day.
“StackCare UK’s discreet monitoring system and detailed reporting helps address that worry, giving reassurance both to the parent and their family.
“For families looking for ways to help their loved one maintain their independence at home StackCare UK is an ideal solution. The sensors are small and discreet and there are no microphones or cameras, helping to preserve dignity and privacy. StackCare UK provides an extra level of support for a family, letting them know how their loved one is getting along during the time when they can’t be there.”
The installation of the StackCare UK system has been designed to be as quick and easy as possible, the provider highlights. Users download the app to their phone, plug in the hub in their loved one’s home, install the sensors and connect. There are no wires and no tools are needed for set-up, StackCare UK boasts. All data is fully encrypted, ensuring privacy and security.
Noel added: “In the UK there are around 12million people aged 65 or over and that number is set to increase over the coming years. Technology solutions such as StackCare UK are providing increasingly sophisticated tools to help them maximise their quality of life and keep their independence.
“A more positive old age is good for all of us and StackCare is delighted to offer a service that helps people achieve just that.”
