GreenPeak Technologies has announced the availability of Senior Lifestyle sensor and cloud-based intelligent system technology for service providers and retailers. The Senior Lifestyle System empowers children and their elderly parents to privately and securely share lifestyle information.
The GreenPeak Senior Lifestyle System utilizes a network of wireless ZigBee sensor nodes located throughout the home. This network connects via an Internet gateway to a cloud-based self-learning algorithm with advanced behaviour pattern recognition capabilities that learn the normal day-to-day activities and behaviour of people in their home. Because it does not require people to wear devices and does not use cameras, the system is unobtrusive and ensures privacy.
“Family Lifestyle Systems can encompass a wide range of living and family social environments. We are starting with the Senior Lifestyle System because that is an acknowledged need—keeping family members and loved ones informed, wherever they are, on how they are doing,” says Cees Links, CEO of GreenPeak Technologies. “With a growing number of elderly people wishing to continue living in their own home longer, the demands for smart-assisted living solutions are rapidly increasing.”
Currently being rolled out in Europe and China, a Senior Lifestyle System learns what the normal patterns in the home are. When do the home’s residents get up in the morning? When are they in the kitchen cooking, when are they watching TV? When do they usually turn on the heating or air conditioning? When do they leave and come back? Where are they in the house and when do they need light? Within a few weeks, the application learns what is “normal”, and therefore also learns what is not as expected and can send an alert to a smart phone or integrated social media app when something is not quite right or when irregular behaviour is detected.
