Health Subscription Service Will Help Carers Keep An Eye On Those They Look After Using Smart Sensors And Alert Apps Particularly For The Elderly, Disabled, And Ill.
Centrica, the British Gas owner, has plans of installing motion trackers in the houses of senior citizens, disabled, and unwell people. This will ease the burden on the millions of unpaid carers out there. Centrica’s Hive unit is starting a subscription service to assist the carers in monitoring their charges.
The service will involve British Gas engineers fitting sensors in the home of the person being cared for, with their permission.
The carers will get alerts if anything out-of-routine takes place. For instance, a room was not entered.
The company got inspiration from their employees, who are also unpaid carers. The seniors adapt to new technology relatively quickly and find it very helpful. Most seniors don’t feel it is intrusive either. This technology is aimed at improving the quality of communication and care offered to the people and to ease some load off the carer’s life. The Hive Link service will not have a camera. However, it will have plug and motion sensors along with window and door sensors.
