Aging-in-place solutions have certainly evolved in interest over the past few years—right up there with smart energy solutions. It’s one part trying to figure out how technology can benefit an already existing and often underserved population and another part trying to anticipate the approaching influx of retirees in the market. And in the middle of it all, there are plenty of manufacturers trying to expand these aging-in-place opportunities for smart home markets.
Currently, this usually amounts to adding sensors in the home, a lot of them—though integrators can get clever with some technology deployments. The only problem with sensors as they are is that they provide information and little else. As David Ly, CEO of Iveda puts it, “I get a notification saying there’s motion detected in mom’s room, but there’s no context to it.”
Cut to Iveda itself, which has a substantial background in smart city technology, a vertical that is founded on the principles of contextual, actionable information gathered from sensors. You can see where this is going.
Recently, the company has decided to scale down its technology, but in a big way. Retaining all the contextual decision making by using the same AI software leveraged in smart city scenarios, IvedaCare is a scalable aging-in-place solution that can provide services to a single smart home or to entire neighborhoods. And it’s all provided as an out-of-the-box solution that provides beginners with an easy way to get started.
Professionals, meanwhile, have the luxury of open APIs and expandable software capabilities to create bespoke solutions with many of the sensors of their choosing once they get comfortable with the system. It may start at senior care, but it can quickly expand into energy management, environmental monitoring and more if the needs are there.
As Web Editor Nick Boever makes his debut hosting David Ly on this episode of the CE Pro podcast, the duo will dig deep into the capabilities of the IvedaCare solution and the potential its technology for integrators looking to branch out into new markets, bolster their current offerings, or open up some recurring revenue possibilities on the side.
