ADT Security Australia launches IoT service for elderly care
Home security firm ADT Security Australia is set to deploy an IoT healthcare solution to enhance its offering for elderly people to live independent lives.
Care@Home, a telecare service from IoT platform developer Essence SmartCare, is a health monitoring solution that includes advanced fall detection and emergency alerting.
ADT Security Australia is owned by Johnson Controls, a building technology and software company that operates in over 150 countries. Although the company does not traditionally provide monitoring services for the elderly, this announcement comes amid the expected rapid growth of Australia’s aging population over the next 30 years.
HSC Technology Group have helped facilitate the partnership, which will enable ADT to provide new assistive services through Essence’s Care@Home solution under the banner of ADT Home Assure.
Care@Home is a suite of products, providing health monitoring solutions that leverage a variety of advanced technologies including AI, to ensure the safety of seniors. The platform enables continuous monitoring of daily activities as well as voice-activated alerts so that caregivers and emergency services providers can communicate in real time.
Part of the Essence Group, Essence SmartCare was founded in 2014, and develops platforms that enable smart preventive care and emergency response for market-leading healthcare and senior care providers.
“We are honoured to be joining forces with ADT Security Australia, one of the largest security and safety solutions providers, to enable them to provide the best care and protection to Australian seniors,” said Barak Katz, General Manager for Essence SmartCare.
"Our unified telehealth and care platform enables monitoring at any level and through any type of caring device for a wide range of health conditions, both at home or on-the-go – all through one connected Care@Home smart platform.”
