Monitoring the regular activities using sensor nodes (no camera included) at important locations.
Assessment of abnormal behavior by interpreting the information of the sensor nodes using an intelligent controller.
Communicating the message to the mobile phones of caretakers.
Power saving algorithms incorporated to minimize the energy consumption.
Non-invasive and does not use any camera
Sensor nodes are light weight, portable and easy to install
Low power consumption to avoid electrical loading
Automatic refreshing of memory after 16th day of installation for continuous use
Emergency situation is assessed and message sent to the caretaker through mobile phone.
The user does not have to keep track of the operation of the instrument. Health status of the sensor nodes and the central controller is checked at regular intervals and message sent to themaintenance person if required.
