Current Cost have announced its new range of Low Cost Telecare products under its new division, Current Care (www.currentcare.uk.com)
With an ageing population and limited spaces at care homes, the optimum solution of assisted living, requires a total home monitoring system.
A comprehensive range of discrete sensors send data to Current Cost’s latest Consumer Access Device called ‘The QUEL’ – this can be easily configured to alert a carer by email or SMS to any unusual behaviour patterns.
An example for Dementia sufferers could be a door opening late at night which would instantly text message the carer/relative.
Coupled with Current Cost’s utility monitoring solutions, the QUEL can also monitor temperature, energy usage and water usage, to help ensure the dependant is not only maintaining ideal room temperatures, but also not wasting gas, electricity or water with unnecessary usage.
Sensors include, occupancy, temperature, flush detection, CO/smoke alarm, door security, door sensor, CCTV, water leak/flood alarm, appliance monitoring, energy monitoring and automatic meter reading.
Launched at the Health+Care show at the Excel Exhibition Centre, London in June 2014, the Current Care solution was well received. Customers from nursing homes, care groups, local councils, and strategic partners all took a huge interest in the QUELity-Care solution, as well as other solutions from the new Current Care range.
Martin Dix, Managing Director, says “With a burgeoning population and people wanting or needing to stay in their own home longer, improving healthcare assistance, through technology is vital – we can alert primary carers to virtually any unusual activity, offering an extra layer of caring never seen before. With our rich experience in energy saving, they may even save money!”
