One CarePenguin sensor detects activity throughout the entire house for the purpose of ensuring an elderly loved one living independently is okay. Our In-Home Activity Sensor easily hooks onto the hot water pipe output on a water heater, connects to the home’s WiFi network, and detects anytime someone turns on a faucet. That activity is displayed on the CarePenguin app where adult children or other caregivers can see it and receive alerts if there is lack of activity, encouraging them to check in.
The average senior citizen uses water seven times a day, making it an excellent indicator of human behavior. It’s as simple as this: if your loved one is using water like normal, they’re okay. If not, maybe you should check in.
No motion sensors, no cameras, or no wearables needed. CarePenguin’s activity detection technology is simple, non-invasive, and affordable. No tools are needed to install, it takes just five minutes!
