Smart Family Living – AAL
Help system for seniors and disabled people
Home automation has been proven to be very beneficial for people who are beginning to lose their autonomy. With this in mind, we are convinced that with voice control and Aragon, we can go even further and allow people to gain back their independence. Consequently, with the aide of a voice-controlled home help system, everyday tasks become easier and require far less effort. By simply saying a short sentence aloud, such as “I’m awake”, Aragon will connect to a pre-programmed integration device, starting up a holistic scene by opening the curtains or shutters, and if needed, turning on the lights and turning up the heating. We want to extend the time that people can stay comfortably in the familiar environment of their homes.
Comfort is necessary to increase the quality of life, however, we understand that the biggest concern is safety. Thanks to Aragon, a nominated person outside the home can be contacted on their mobile phone as soon as an unusual event occurs. For instance, conspicuously long stays in a room, e.g. the bathroom, are registered. The solo person is asked to confirm that he or she has no problem. If there is no confirmation in a set amount of time, a message is automatically sent to the named carer.
A help call can also be triggered verbally in case of a problem.
