EDFEnergy and Howz have launched a smart home monitoring system on www.Howz.com that uses energy data and connected home technology to empower the elderly, or those with additional needs, to live independently for longer.
The system, which has been developed and tested extensively with existing EDF Energy customers over the past two years, monitors the energy usage of electrical appliances and combines this with information from a series of sensors that detect factors such as movement and temperature in a person`s home to build up a pattern of daily behaviour. Using the app, customers can check in on their family or friends and will receive alerts if the user`s normal routine is broken.
The Howz home monitoring system includes:
Easy set-up - all the kit comes pre-paired meaning it can be set up in just a few minutes
Latest technology - including the world`s smallest smart plug and discreet motion sensors that detect occupancy, temperature, and a new door sensor with built in temperature sensor as well.
Alert notifications through the app and monthly reports - providing real-time alerts of sudden changes of routine through the app; long-term analysis of routine is also available via the website to highlight less obvious changes in behaviour, and the system also provides an option of sharing information gathered with family, friends or healthcare professionals
