IoT Elderly Home Monitoring Hardware Solutions

IoT gateway hub & wireless sensors for making senior citizen in-home monitoring easier

Necessity of Home Monitoring System for Elderly

IoT for elderly care allows aging-in-place live independently and securely, with less worry from families who can’t be there for them all the time.

IoT devices for elderly can detect the living trajectory of the elderly and protect the elderly safety by using inconspicuous wireless sensors located in the home to automatically learn the daily behavior patterns of senior citizens and then detect behavioral changes that may cause concern. It is able to reminds family members or carers through messages uploaded by ZigBee gateway to the Cloud platforms.

The home care monitoring systems uses proven technology that has been successfully tested in residential care facilities for several years and is now available for home installations by service providers, retailers, and smart home system integrators.

Working Princple of IoT-based Monitoring Systems for the Elderly

Smart terminal devices utilize modern sensor technology to gather information about elderly people’s behavior and living environment, upload it to the smart elderly care platforms via the Internet of Things gateways, so that all-round and sophisticated elderly care services, such as remote monitoring, chronic diseases management, remote patient monitoring, and emergency event handling can be implemented by caregivers and senior care organizations 24/7.

Door Sensors for Elderly Safety

Door and window sensors can track and record the status of the home doors and windows, like when the elderly go to the toilet, go out and go to the bedroom to sleep, families and caregivers can use historical data to analyze the behavior trajectory and prevent accidents. Meanwhile, If the home door is opened for a long time, an alarm will be issued for reminding families and caregivers to find lost senior citizens with dementia.

PIR Motion Sensors for Elderly Care

Installing PIR sensors in the living room, bedroom, and bathroom makes it simple to keep tabs on your loved ones when they get out of bed or leave the room. Caregivers may also be there to lessen the risk of falls and wandering when senior citizens get out of their beds.

Water Leakage Sensors to Stop Falls

Water leakage sensors can monitor hidden leaks, provide alerts, and save elderly patients from slipping and falling in nursing homes, residential care communities, and long-term care facilities.

Smoke Detectors for Elderly Safety

Any older adult who wishes to age safely at home has to have smoke detectors. They are vital instruments that, in the case of a fire emergency, can save lives. To avoid house fires, smoke detectors are fitted in every room. An alert will ring when the reported reading goes outside of the predetermined range. On a phone or tablet, the Zigbee WiFi gateway will issue a warning and provide clear information about the issue in the home.

Gas Detectors for for Elderly Safety

To stop the elderly from forgetting to switch off the gas and triggering a gas leak, gas detectors have been fitted in the kitchen. For elderly people whose sense of smell may have diminished or who battle with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, it might be difficult to notice a significant amount of natural gas. An alert will ring when the reading goes outside the predetermined range.

Temperature and Humidity Sensors

The comfort of the living space is equally crucial for senior citizens who live alone. Temperature and humidity sensors may help the elderly keep their homes tidy, comfortable, and healthy by alerting them when the house is too hot in the summer or has no heat in the winter, and by monitoring the presence of dangerous and toxic gases.

Vibration Sensor for Medication Management

The ability to continuously follow each patient’s medication adherence behavior is made possible by accurate monitoring of senior patients’ medication compliance. Vibration sensors can be installed on medicine boxes to track usage and check if elderly patients are eating and taking their medications on schedule. It may be used to track the dietary patterns of the elderly as well.

Emergency Buttons for Medical Alert

Medical alert systems, often known as life alert systems, allow older persons who are aging in place, as well as their loved ones and caregivers, additional peace of mind. The elderly can hit the SOS button if they are in danger or trip and fall. A round-the-clock monitoring station can send help, family members, or both to the user’s location.

The Value of Smart Elderly Care Solution

DM 20220712112254 005

Eating regularly is an important indicator of healthy behavior. The data of the PIR sensor can help customers understand whether the eating habits of the elderly are lower or higher than your expectations.

DM 20220712112254 006
Go out

The time spent outside shows that people living here have social and sports activities. Conversely, spending less time outside may indicate that something may have happened. It can detect people's outing state through door sensors.

DM 20220712112254 007
Walk speed

PIR sensor data can intelligently track people's walking speed.

DM 20220712112254 008

The data of door sensors and passive infrared sensors can detect the general sleep time of the elderly and compare it with the normal sleep time.

DM 20220712112254 009
Medication habits

For patients with chronic diseases, medication must be taken on time. The vibration sensor detects when the elderly open or use the medicine box.

bathroom habits

Decreasing or increasing toilet usage can be a bad sign. The door sensor and PIR sensor data know what is normal behavior and produce signs of deviation.
