Terms such as digitizationand innovative technologies are now firmly anchored in our consciousness. However, not only our vocabulary is changing, but also our immediate environment. The current trend of transforming one’s own home into an everyday-supporting smarthome with intelligent assistance systems – such asAmazon’s Alexa – is already widespread among younger generations and is now gradually reaching older groups of people as well.
Although many seniors are still skeptical about innovative technologies, smart assistance systems can make life in their own homes sustainably easier, more comfortable and, above all, more pleasant. safer. JAMEScan be described as intelligent emergency call system can be integrated effortlessly into the everyday lives of older people and its components offer a range of life-enhancing functions. Consequently, nothing stands in the way of “moving in” to your own smarthome and, associated with that, into the digital age.
Peter is 73 and has lived alone in his large house for several years. Until now, he did everyday tasks by himself, however, despite regular exercise, Peter is not as agile as he was a few years ago. The senior is plagued by back pain. Peter’s son Gerhard lives with his family in a smart apartment in Vienna and is enthusiastic about the benefits of the new technologies. After the encouragement of his son, Peter now also decided to convert his house into a smarthome.
As of now, JAMESand Alexa(Amazon) provide more securityand comfort. The newly networked AAL(active and assisted living) smarthome makes Peter’s daily life easier by automating tedious or strenuous daily tasks through digitally controlled routines, thus creating more free time and comfort:
In addition to the all-encompassing Alexahome optimization (networking and control of light, room temperature, music and TV, coffee machine, lawn robot, etc.), JAMESmakes Peter’s life easier with a mobile home emergency call, video telephony, measurement and assessment of vital signs, and reminders to take important medications, and much more.
Thanks to the unbeatable helper duo JAMESand Alexa, Peter’s life has changed from the ground up: He now lives under the sign of the JAMES core areas of SAFETY, HEALTH and COMMUNITY and thus has more time and energy for family and friends.
