At-home monitoring and predictive care management provider Karantis360 has partnered with SENSEi Networks to enable its services to work away from the home.
Karantis360 uses IoT sensors to unobtrusively monitor the daily activities of vulnerable people being cared for in their own home. Utilising Artificial Intelligence, the platform learns behaviours, analyses activity data and compares it to expected patterns, so the system can identify when a client’s activity is out-of-the-ordinary.
Upon detecting a behaviour anomaly, the service sends an alert via a mobile app, allowing carers or family members to respond quickly and effectively.
By utilising SENSEi’s LoRaWAN network technology, Karantis360 can enable monitoring of individuals away from home within a LoRaWAN network vicinity.
Helen Dempster, CVO of Karantis360, said: “With the NHS and social care sector at its breaking point, technology solutions are essential to reduce the strain on our already overstretched healthcare services and help them to provide the best possible care.
“Our partnership with SENSEi means our solution can provide a complete picture of an individual’s wellbeing both inside and outside the home, enabling a more holistic approach to social care and thereby reducing unnecessary activity such as hospital admissions.”
Sensors within Karantis360 collect data from a variety of data points across the home environment, such as the movement of the individual, the status of doors, use of kitchen appliances, heating and humidity levels.
In a location with a LoRaWAN network, additional sensors can also be used to monitor individuals outside of the home, tracking the location, movements, and – where appropriate – the biometrics of an individual.
The data is then pushed through to Karantis360 where analytics are applied and an understanding of what is happening in and away from the home is visualised.
Damon Thomas, CEO of SENSEi Networks, said: “At SENSEi, we are committed to providing an IoT eco-system that supports our partners to deliver solutions that in turn help users to monitor, protect and optimise their operations.
“Partnering with Karantis360, we are excited to combine our respective technologies to make independent living outside of the home possible, bringing families and their loved ones closer together. Right now, with the restrictions in place due to the global pandemic, this is more essential than ever before.”
