There are many safety risks when older people are alone at home or living alone. For example, forgetting to lock the door when going out, or accidentally falling over. Each year, 3 million older people are treated in emergency departments for fall injuries across the US alone according to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. So what can you do to help prepare for such events?

How can our products help the elderly?
Protect your home valuables.
When someone enters your home, your mobile phone can receive reminders and scare away thieves through two-way talk.
Stay notified should someone suddenly fall down.
Helps you lock your door should you be more forgetful.
Due to the older among us (and well, some of us anyway) we sometimes find that our memory is poorer than it used to be. Which usually leads to forgetting to lock/close the door when we go out. However, if you have SwitchBot Lock & Hub Mini, as long as your door is not closed/locked, you’ll be able to receive a notification via our app that will be able to tell you to close the door.
Make sure daily routines are OK.
This is great for checking up on seniors that get up at a fixed time every morning, but suddenly may not get up on a certain day.
Use Contact Sensor with Hub Mini to get mobile phone notifications when a door inside home is opened via our app, and if you haven’t received a notification on any said day, you can make a quick phone call to check up on said family member, or call the emergency services should need be.
Prevent forgetting the way home.
Actually, a fantastic way to help family members that might suffer from dementia, and who might find themselves wandering around outside the home in a state of confusion, or just simply forgetting where they are.
