GreenPeak Releases New, Ground-Breaking Family Lifestyle Systems

GreenPeak Technologies, the industry leading Smart Home semi-conductor/system company, today announces a family of new, ground-breaking sensor and cloud based intelligent systems for Family Lifestyle integrated with Social Media. The first release is a Senior Lifestyle System that empowers children and their elderly parents to privately and securely share lifestyle information, enabling the seniors to feel safe and live longer at home independently, while their children feel secure that their parents are well. The Senior Lifestyle system is currently being rolled out to consumers in Germany and China via Service Operators, such as cable operators, telco’s, and large retailers.

GreenPeak’s Family Lifestyle Systems are built around a set of wireless ZigBee sensor nodes located throughout the home and connected via an internet gateway to a cloud based self-learning algorithm with advanced behavior pattern recognition capabilities, that learns the normal day to day activities and behavior of people in their home. When irregular behavior or exception situations are identified, family or friends will be notified via a smart phone application that can be integrated with online messaging and social media platforms like Facebook, WhatsApp, WeChat and QQ. In this way, these Lifestyle Systems keep family members and loved ones informed, wherever they are, on how they are doing. With a growing number of elderly people wishing to continue living in their own home longer, the need for smart assisted living solutions is rapidly increasing.

The essential elements of the system are the ease of installation and the unobtrusiveness, providing privacy and security. The wireless sensors can be installed in specific places in the home in a matter of minutes, from where they connect via a gateway to the cloud over the internet. Over a period of a few weeks and based on the inputs of the sensors, the system automatically learns to identify normal behavior: no programming of rules to define exception situations is required. After the learning period, the system is able to separate normal inputs from abnormal situations and can create alerts via messaging systems and Social Media applications, with which it can be integrated. The system is also totally unobtrusive. It does not require people to wear devices and does not require cameras, preserving privacy, while at the same time is very effective in creating peace of mind for elderly people and their families.
The system also provides general information and longer term behavioral trends. For instance, the system will identify and report when a person gradually starts to move slower. The system has been intensively tested in care environments, has won various awards for top quality home care and is now also available for consumers.

“Smart home solutions need to address real problems to the consumer. Senior Lifestyle is GreenPeak’s first application in this Family Lifestyle Systems domain and will become one of the fastest growing Smart Home applications.” says Cees Links, Founder & CEO of GreenPeak Technologies, “Family Lifestyle Systems are bringing families together by integrating Smart Home and Internet of Things technologies with social media to provide comfort, safety and security. Our connected Family Lifestyle Systems are simple to install, low cost and unobtrusive – they need no programming or rule and exception definitions.”

Senior Lifestyle Systems and the related cloud and expert applications are currently in trial in both Germany and China through the Service Operators and are expected to scale up in volume roll out later this year, allowing Service Operators to offer new exciting services to their subscribers. In the next phase, other Family Lifestyle applications will be added. Junior Lifestyle, monitoring babies, infants and children is the next in line to help families watch over their loved ones, directly linking the Smart Home and Social Media.

According to two new reports from IHS Technology, “The World Market for Home Health Technologies” and “Smart Home Subscribers & Services”, the installed base of independent living solutions is set for rapid growth over the coming years. “Sensor and alarm-based technologies, in conjunction with cloud-based external monitoring capabilities, can be used to support the aging population by enabling a higher level of independence while addressing growing care bills,” explains Lisa Arrowsmith, Director for Connectivity, Smart Homes and Smart Cities at IHS. “The growing adoption of such solutions will be supported by a wide ecosystem of companies entering this market, with a diverse company mix, including sensor device providers, application developers, service providers and even retailers to provide family and caregivers with means of staying connected to their loved ones.”
