Lighthouse Helps Elderly Parents Age in Place in their Home Longer and More Safely

PALO ALTO, Calif., April 25, 2018 - Industry research suggests people are aging faster, and aging longer in their homes. Yet, a very small percentage of U.S. homes are actually designed for aging in place and meet the needs of both the parent and child. The Lighthouse smart home camera addresses today’s most common problems with aging in place by protecting elderly parents and providing peace of mind for their children.

“Since introducing the Lighthouse AI home camera, we surprisingly learned from our customers that Lighthouse is particularly useful for aging in place in the home,” said Alex Teichman, Co-Founder and CEO of Lighthouse. “Elderly parents don't have to change their daily routine, and their children feel confident about leaving their parents living independently at home for longer.”

Key features of the Lighthouse home camera helping safeguard elderly parents include:

  • Inactivity Notifications (Pings) - Lighthouse can detect unusual activity in your parent’s home so you know to check in. Simply set up a Ping such as, "Ping me if you don't see anyone at the kitchen camera by 8am every day."

  • Two-way Talk: Keep communication lines open between you and your elderly parent even if nobody’s answering the phone. Speak directly from the app through the camera with, or set up an alert to ping you if your parent waves hello.

  • Manage Your Parent’s Caretaker(s): Check in on in-home helpers to insure that your elderly parent is receiving the best care. Helpful notifications let you know when the caretaker arrives or if the caregiver changes. Set up Pings such as, “Ping me when you see someone around 3pm on Tuesdays.” “Tell me if you see someone you don’t recognize.”

  • Daily Recap: Insure you’re in the know about your parent’s routine instantly without scrubbing through video footage like traditional home cameras. Easily access specific clips just by asking, or get a time-lapse of the day right from the app home screen.

  • Zero Hassle: Lighthouse provides peace of mind without requiring elderly parents to wear a device, replace batteries, or change their daily routine. They don’t even need a smartphone.

Pricing & Availability:

  • The Lighthouse camera for Seniors is available for $299 from Amazon and

  • Lighthouse ships with many capabilities right out of the box, and a paid subscription service (for $10 a month) makes your camera even better with additional AI features and services.
