HERZLIYA, Israel – April 27, 2022 – Essence SmartCare, a leader in IoT-based advanced remote care solutions, part of Essence Group, today announced that VitalCALL, Australia’s primary provider of 24/7 personal emergency response alarms and a subsidiary company to the global provider of monitoring solutions Chubb Fire & Security, has selected Essence’s LTE-powered personal emergency response system (PERS) platform for implementation in independent-living retirement facilities across Australia.
As Australia prepares the ground for a digital network branch out to support leading-edge security solutions, Essence SmartCare’s LTE-based personal emergency response systems will be deployed to replace generation 2G and 3G cellular services. The upgraded system will be implemented by Essence SmartCare’s strategic partner, HSC Technology Group, which was awarded the project for its proven ability to deploy next generation security technology solutions.
“VitalCALL is excited to be working with HSC and Essence SmartCare to provide next-generation assistive technology to the senior market and allow our customers to maintain and improve their safety and independence while providing peace of mind to families that VitalCALL is here for them, 24/7, as required,” said Joshua Simmons, Managing Director of Monitoring Solutions at VitalCALL/Chubb.
Building on Essence SmartCare’s market leadership for cellular-enabled personal emergency response systems, the PERS 4G provides activity monitoring, fall detection, and voice capabilities anywhere in the home, allowing service providers and users to enjoy the highest levels of dependability and accuracy.
“We applaud VitalCALL/Chubb in their proactivity to address the impending 3G shutdown by implementing Essence SmartCare’s upgraded 4G-based PERS solutions,” said Graham Russell, Managing Director at HSC Technology Group. “We are looking forward to working with their team as strategic partners and are extremely encouraged by this project to continue and expand our services.”
“We are delighted to be joining forces with HSC Technology Group and VitalCALL/Chubb as they spearhead this major upgrade for seniors across Australia,” said Barak Katz, General Manager of Essence SmartCare. “We have been at the forefront of assisted living innovation for many years and remain committed to deploying technologies that allow people to live safe, healthy and independent lives for as long as possible.”
