Technology-enabled care specialist Doro has announced the launch of its next generation social alarm, designed to offer a safer and more secure everyday living environment for vulnerable adults.
Doro Eliza acts as a smart hub in the home and is based on the latest 4G technology, but also connects to other digital IP networks.
The alarm can also be integrated with other services, such as smoke detectors, fall sensors, security cameras, and pill dispensers.
Doro said the launch comes as the health and social care sector faces “substantial changes” in the form of a growing elderly population and shrinking resources, placing additional demands on the way the older population is cared for and supported.
Further to this, by 2025 analogue telephone services will be switched off as the UK’s telecoms infrastructure is upgraded to digital connectivity.
The company said the solution “raises the bar” in technology-enabled care” by “taking full advantage of the capabilities afforded through today and tomorrow’s digital networks”.
Doro CEO Carl-Johan Zetterberg said: “Doro Eliza is a smart hub for technology enabled care with a clear focus on the social alarm element. Eliza will conitinue to be developed, adding new functions and enabling integration with future technologies.
“Our extensive experience of developing social alarms means we know what is required and what our users want. Security and safety are our priority at all times, making Doro Eliza an extremely reliable solution.”
