"Care & Security" – new IoT service for older people and their relatives

In a difficult time like this, communicating with each other - with family, friends or neighbours - is more important than ever and allows us to move closer together despite social distancing. But even before Corona, the security and care of elderly, single people was associated with many challenges. Relatives, who often live many kilometres away, wonder whether everything is all right with their loved ones and how they can act and help from a distance, especially in an emergency. The same applies to housing providers who want to offer their tenants and residents an independent and secure life as long as possible.

Our offer: For our partners, we provide "Care & Security" as a ready-made IoT service in the look & feel of the partner within one month, so that you can offer your customers quick added value and help.

Our new IoT service "Care & Security" improves the lives of elderly people living alone by digitally networking them with their relatives. They find it difficult to meet their need for care. "Care & Security" is aimed precisely at this target group: elderly people who want to continue a self-determined life and relatives who want to be informed remotely whether everything is alright. They need a solution to help in an emergency. By using smart technologies, both target groups can benefit.

Relevance in the Corona crisis

We can see that people with impaired health and therefore their families are facing a very difficult time. The emerging reduction in contact over a longer period of time will have a massive impact on the everyday life of these risk groups. Relatives will have to take on more responsibility – often without being personally present on site. This is where support measures which can be implemented from a distance and which effectively inform the relatives help.

"Care & Security" allows relatives to keep an eye on everything from a distance and to be automatically informed in atypical situations. In case of an emergency, the solution quick help can be initiated by people on site.

The solution:

"Care & Security" is a Connected Home solution, where, unlike many other products on the market, the primary users of the system are not the residents themselves but the members.

They get an app and a web portal through which they

  • are always informed about the latest activities,
  • be automatically alerted by SMS or e-mail if there is no activity during certain periods, e.g. between 6 and 8 a.m. (periods can be flexibly set)
  • always have an eye on whether the heating is correct,
  • build up a personal community of neighbours, friends, family members, who in turn also have access to the above information and can open the door on the spot in case of an emergency
  • optional: when extended with smart radiator thermostats, the heating can be controlled and automated remotely

Little hardware - high value

"Care and Security" is based on the use of less specific hardware components that can be used in a variety of ways through a clever combination with software features. Unlike complex technical systems with emergency buttons, fall mats and similar, this minimally invasive equipment is accepted by the people on site and leads to no restrictions in personal life. The solution deliberately avoids the use of cameras or similar components that would lead to an impairment of privacy. The components are installed in such a way that they are hardly noticed in everyday life.

ROCKETHOME offers a combination of (1) a sensor for activity & healthy room climate,
(2) optional, intelligent door lock and (3) a special app for relatives to each of our B2B partners in the current situation at preferential conditions: This IoT service is ready for use within a very short time on request.
