'are you okay today' uses electric appliances that are already present in the house such as a kettle, television or smartphone. The system learns the normal daily usage pattern of these devices. Using an app that shows a traffic light (red, yellow or green), the son or daughter check whether there is a deviation in this pattern at any time and see whether everything is still okay, without affecting the privacy of the senior.
The only thing the senior needs is at least one smart device, such as Philips Hue , a smart plug or a smartphone. An alternative is a special device that can be installed on the electricity meter that measures energy consumption. The more smart devices are added, the faster the system can ring in the event of an incident.
The app itself is free. You do have to take care of the smart devices yourself. If you don't have any yet, just buy it at the store. See the Smart Device Overview. There are currently no additional costs for using the "are you okay today" service.
