CloseBy Network delivers an innovative solution for remote care giving. The technology allows family members and trusted friends to help elderly or disabled loved ones stay in their homes longer. Real-time monitoring gives you insights into their daily routine, helping you understand what a normal living pattern looks like, and then be alerted if anything changes.
CloseBy Network, built on the Control4 home automation system, uses a combination of sensors and software tied to a web application. Families choose what to monitor, how to receive the information, and who should be sent alerts. Depending on sensor location, you can receive alerts when your loved one leaves and returns, gets out of bed, opens the refrigerator or medicine cabinet, and if he or she is moving normally about the house. You can also receive an alert if there is no activity within a specified time, or if
your loved one pushes the “contact me” button for help.
Secure and Unobtrusive
CloseBy Network lets the elderly or disabled continue to live independently. You're aware of what's happening with loved ones while not interfering with their daily routine. Your loved one doesn't need to change their behavior or learn a new system for both of you to enjoy the benefits of CloseBy Network.
Flexible and Expandable
You choose what you want to be notified about. Receive instant alerts through e-mail or via text on your mobile phone when activity or lack of activity takes place. Daily or weekly reports are available on-line or can be set to send via e-mail. And since CloseBy is built on the Control4 system, you can add additional features, such as automated lighting, to customize your loved one's home and make it more safe.
