GreenPeak Press Release
CES 2015 – Las Vegas – December 29, 2014 - GreenPeak Technologies, the industry leading Smart Home semi-conductor/system company, today announces the availability of Senior Lifestyle sensor and cloud based intelligent system technology for service providers and retailers. The Senior Lifestyle System empowers children and their elderly parents to privately and securely share lifestyle information, enabling the seniors to feel safe and live longer at home independently, while their children feel secure that their parents are safe and well.
The GreenPeak’s Senior Lifestyle System utilizes a network of wireless ZigBee sensor nodes located throughout the home. This network connects via an internet gateway to a cloud based self-learning algorithm with advanced behavior pattern recognition capabilities that learn the normal day-to-day activities and behavior of people in their home. Because it does not require people to wear devices and does not use cameras, the system is unobtrusive and ensures privacy.
“Family Lifestyle Systems can encompass a wide range of living and family social environments. We are starting with the Senior Lifestyle System because that is an acknowledged need – keeping family members and loved ones informed, wherever they are, on how they are doing,” says Cees Links, CEO of GreenPeak Technologies. “With a growing number of elderly people wishing to continue living in their own home longer, the demands for smart assisted living solutions are rapidly increasing.”
"The core sensing and networking technologies supporting the "Smart Home" and Internet of Things continue to improve, and a big part of that is embracing standardized technologies that are proven to work, and are easy to install and require little maintenance," said Jim Montgomery, Senior Analyst for NanoMarkets. "What will truly drive success in the Smart Home area, though, is creating significantly more value for these systems through applications that address and solve real-world problems. This will create opportunities for everyone: consumers, service providers, and systems manufacturers."
Currently being rolled out in Europe and China, a Senior Lifestyle System learns what the normal patterns in the home are. When do the home’s residents get up in the morning? When are they in the kitchen cooking, when are they watching TV? When do they usually turn on the heating or air conditioning? When do they leave and come back? Where are they in the house and when do they need light? Within a few weeks, the application learns what is “normal”, and therefore also learns what is not as expected and can send an alert to a smart phone or integrated social media app when something is not quite right or when irregular behavior is detected.
The Senior Lifestyle System has been intensively tested in care environments, has won various awards for top quality home care, and is now also available for service providers, retailers, system integrators and Smart Home system developers.
