Nortek Security & Control unveils mobile platform for senior care

Numera EverThere Device Settings

Nortek Security & Control unveiled Numera EverThere, a solution for healthy aging, which connects seniors with their loved ones through real-time monitoring and notifications. Working in pair with the mobile-connected Numera Libris device, EverThere relies on a team-based approach to caring for elders and ill or disabled family members. The solution provides caregivers visibility with an individual’s health and wellness, including their daily activities, movement and location.

Compared to traditional reactive based solutions, EverThere is proactive, integrating personal safety and emergency response with a cloud-monitoring service so seniors and their families have the tools to track and share important health and activity information. For instance, members of the care team can choose to be notified by email or text if a fall occurs, no motion has been detected for a predetermined amount of time, an emergency is reported, or if other events occur. The single button pendant connects directly to emergency services so a user is never alone or helpless.

Working in pair with the mobile-connected Numera Libris device, EverThere relies on a team-based approach to caring for elders and ill or disabled family members.“In focusing on helping seniors live healthier longer, we believe it’s important to include family members, neighbors and close personal friends for encouragement, support, and to a degree, accountability for adhering to their treatment plans,” said Tim Smokoff, group vice president health & wellness, Nortek Security & Control. “Numera EverThere’s analytics engine provides timely insight into a senior’s overall health and wellness, and proactive notifications of important health and safety events.”

Also worth adding is that EverThere cloud service links personal security with Nortek’s home security and control systems, bringing together active plus passive monitoring, both home and away.

The solution was unveiled on the heels of Nortek’s acquisition of health tech from Numera this June.
