IoT and smart technology are now increasingly present in our daily lives and their use can improve common well-being and avoid unwanted accidents especially for the most fragile people. Senior Safety® has always supported the prevention of harmful uses of the IoT and instead encourages its use aimed at improving the well-being of the population and developing advantageous approaches. The use of IoT and AI for non-invasive monitoring of the elderly is a concrete example of the commitment supported by Senior Safety®.
The Senior Safety® kit is conceived, designed and implemented thanks to a smart technology capable of digitizing and making all the data collected by the sensors usable.
The motion, light and door sensors collect data that is transmitted from the devices to the operations center thanks to a LoraWAN network. All data is stored in the T.net (Senior Safety® parent company) Cloud, according to GDPR compliant and ISO 27001 certified regulations, and becomes accessible in a secure way for the end user. The end user sees and scans the data on the desktop platform or mobile APP.

Thanks to smart technology, sophisticated but, at the same time, simple to manage, the Senior Safety® sensors detect the position of the person inside the home and signal possible anomalous behaviour, dangers or the possibility of accidents.
There are many contexts in which the elderly person alone at home or in a structure can find himself in danger or can show behaviors that can cause suspicion. For example, if a loved one goes into the bathroom and stays there for a long time, opens the fridge many times or, even worse, doesn't come home in the evening, Senior Safety® records the data and shares it promptly so as to allow those duty to intervene in a timely manner to help the person.
Data monitoring is handled by LoRa technology, a WAN network protocol that wirelessly connects devices to the network and manages communication between end-node devices and network gateways. LoRaWAN technology is a convenient long-range two-way communication protocol, with very low power consumption: the devices can in fact operate for up to ten years on a small battery.
Among the advantages of LoRaWAN technology we mention:
- Long transmission range
- Low power consumption
- Long sensor battery life
- Two-way communication
- Open protocol that ensures interoperability between networks.
Improving the quality of care for the elderly thanks to technology
The future of healthcare will focus on improving the lives of older people, while also making it easier for them to live independently. There are many ways to do this and one of them is using technology-based solutions that can help seniors stay connected to their families and caregivers, while also helping them stay active and healthy.
More and more hospitals and nursing homes are embracing the technology for their patients. As the world continues to change, so too must the way we care for our seniors. With telehealth, cloud-based technology, IoT and artificial intelligence on the rise, there are many opportunities to improve the quality of life of patients and frail individuals.
You can provide information and support relevant to their individual needs. We can also monitor and log their activities so that we can track their health and progress over time.
Finally, by providing the elderly with innovative technology products such as heart rate monitors and sleep monitors, we can ensure that they are always well and healthy even when they are resting.
