TEL AVIV, Israel & LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vayyar Imaging, creators of Walabot HOME, today announced at CES 2019 a leap forward in connected living technology. Walabot HOME is expanding from a bathroom fall detection device to a home health monitoring solution assisting seniors who want to age in place and maintain privacy and dignity in their home.
“The future of Walabot HOME goes far beyond one device offering one service; it is a holistic solution that can be implemented throughout the entire home,” said Ofer Familier, Director of Business Development at Vayyar Imaging Ltd. “Since launching Walabot HOME, we’ve seen how emergency fall detection can save lives, and we feel a sense of urgency to broaden this protection with additional health monitoring capabilities in every room in the home.”
Unlike cameras, Vayyar’s industry-leading sensors never collect any optic data. Residents can place their Walabot HOME in any location around the house, including the bathroom or bedroom, while still maintaining their privacy. The device attaches to an interior wall and uses a high-tech sensor to monitor occupant health and detect falls. With Walabot HOME, people do not need wearables or pendants to get the home support they require and maintain their quality of life. HOME connects seniors with their caregivers through mobile alerts and two-way calling via the free Walabot HOME mobile app on iOS and Android.
“We installed Walabot HOME at my grandfather’s house,” said one Walabot HOME customer. “He was resistant to any monitoring device that would make him feel older but thought Walabot HOME could be a good option. Recently, around 2 a.m., he experienced a minor cardiac event and a fall that left him unconscious and unable to call for help. Walabot HOME detected the fall and initiated a call to his daughter. She woke up the in-home caregiver who was able to go to him immediately. Without the device, he may have remained on the floor for hours. Thanks to Walabot HOME, he was found quickly and is now feeling better.”
Walabot HOME is available at http://www.walabot.com/walabot-home for $149.
