New Connected Services in Home Automation, Personal Safety and Tele-Care
monitorlinq has just announced a strategic partnership with Somfy, expert designer of home automation solutions, to offer innovative new connected home solutions.
Through the partnership, monitorlinq will enhance the Somfy TaHoma home automation system with its Enterprise-grade platform, adding services and alarms management.
This new Somfy offering, powered by monitorlinq, makes available a complete suite of solutions to satisfy the needs and expectations of consumers in home safety and wellbeing. A whole host of services are accessible from many devices, to simplify everyday life, improve personal safety, monitor family health and help elderly people live autonomously for a longer time in their homes.
All domestic equipment controlled by the TaHoma system, including critical energy-management devices; as well as devices connected to the monitorlinq service platform, such as activity trackers, personal alarms, weighing scales and blood pressure monitors; are converged to be a part of the new solution.
This convergence allows enhanced intelligence in managing the wellbeing of family members and elderly people. User possibilities include, for example:
- Monitor an elderly person who wakes up in the night and wanders lost inside their home
- Remotely monitor the correct administration of medication
- Receive an alert when a child has not returned from school as normal
- Remotely allow home access for an authorised care person
Powered by monitorlinq, the new TaHoma interface is intuitive and simple to use, offering modules dedicated to home comfort, personal wellbeing, safety and healthcare.
The monitorlinq platform allows several levels of connectivity for professional services offering immediate options to dispatch critical alarms to security or tele-care experts.
Its added value is to enable an authorised network to support and help thanks to intuitive permissions management given to a close environment such as family, neighbours and friends.
The converged Somfy and monitorlinq solution is a turn-key solution ready for integration with mobile network operators and insurance providers, as well as professional alarm and care centres encompassing security, intrusion, and telecare.
