Essence has won the ESX Innovation Award for Digital Health/Well-Being Systems.
It is the third year running that Essence has won the award, this time for the company’s new Care@Home Active groundbreaking mobile PERS solution. The win highlights Essence’s continued focus on excellence and innovation for aging-in-place technologies that enhance seniors’ lifestyles and safety.
Unlike traditional mPERS solutions, Care@Home Active enables seniors to move between their homes and outdoors while maintaining connectivity with their families and monitoring center – all with just a single device. The solution brings a superior, more cost-effective answer to the problem of protecting people when they leave their homes than what is available in monitored PERS solutions today.
Care@Home Active was awarded for its latest innovation based on Essence’s small, light, wearable emergency pendent and fall detector, EP Advanced, uses Bluetooth connectivity to seamlessly switch from the PERS station to the senior’s smartphone while away from home.
In addition to this technology, Essence will present its cloud-based services platform for Connected Home services, the WeR@Home. This end-to-end IoT platform gives security dealers all the tool to offer customized, security and smart home services with full remote management via smartphone.
With IoT integration to Nest and IFTTT, among others, end-users and dealers will be able to enjoy the benefits of a range of smart security and automation devices. Visitors will be able to view an interactive demo of this system at Essence’s booth.
