BeClose – A Home Monitoring Solution for Seniors

What BeClose has created is a wireless monitoring system for the home that can keep outside caregivers abreast of events inside it via sensors and software specifically designed to keep tabs on someone. There are sensors that monitor entire rooms, sensors for chairs, beds and toilets, and even a sensor that can monitor a cabinet, refrigerator or front door. Each sensor is tied into a central monitoring device which displays the data in an easy-to-read dashboard that caregivers can monitor to check out sleep patterns, movement and even weight. Caregivers can also set parameters for certain sensors and be alerted when an anomaly occurs. For example, a caregiver can set BeClose to send an email, text or place a phone call if the front door opens between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. The system can also accommodate emergency buttons in locations throughout the house where accidents are most likely to occur, like in a bathroom or on a staircase.
