Sensorcall named 2020 Innovation Awards Honoree

Atlanta, Georgia., - Sensorscall today announced that they were named a CES
2020 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Health & Wellness.  The honorees
products will be unveiled at CES 2020, held January 7 -12, 2020 in Las Vegas
where winning products will be displayed at a special showcase.
An annual program that celebrates outstanding design, the CES Innovation
Awards recognizes honorees across 28 product categories. An elite panel of
judges, including designers, engineers and members of the tech media, review
submissions based on design, functionality, consumer appeal, engineering and
how the products compare with competition.

CareAlert is the first product from Atlanta-based Sensorscall that uses
advanced sensors and machine learning to unobtrusively monitor the wellbeing
of seniors living independently in their home. It uses standard environmental
data to infer the living patterns of the senior in their home. CareAlert is
designed to look like and function as a smart nightlight that learns the
habit of the inhabitants without using cameras or listening to their words.
It then alerts caregivers if there are any anomalies in the senior’s daily
activity pattern.

In addition to letting the caregivers know that their loved ones are okay at
home, CareAlert allows them to communicate with them using an app on their
phone, without relying on the senior answering their phone. CareAlert also
can record medication reminders or other reminders and have them delivered at
scheduled time automatically directly on the device’s inbuilt speaker.
The idea occurred to the founder and serial entrepreneur Fereydoun Taslimi
when he saw his wife Lili frantically trying to contact her 85-year mom to
see if she got back home safely from shopping at 10 PM. Her mom’s cell
phone would not answer, and the land line was busy. After a stressful drive
to her mom’s house, she found her mom relaxing in front of the TV.

“We looked everywhere to see if there is any technology out there that
would let us know if her mom is okay at home”  says Fereydoun Taslimi,
“she has a medical alert device that she dislikes very much and never
carries it, besides the medical alert is reactive and it does not tell you if
your loved ones got back home safely or they are up and about, their shower
was un-eventful or if their environment is safe”.

Sensorscall has been collecting millions of data points using CareAlerts
installed in a variety of pilot sites. Normal installation includes 1
CareAlert device each, in the bathroom, the bedroom and the kitchen or living
room. Data gathered from the 8 sensors including air quality, sound, light,
vibration, temperature etc. is fed to a proprietary machine learning
algorithm that infers actions such as getting up from bed, cooking etc. and
build a baseline of normal daily activity.

CareAlert is designed to get smarter over time through over the air update.
This enables Sensorscall to add features and enhancements.  “we believe as
we gather more data over time, we will be able to recognize onset of
depression, loneliness or other issues” says Fereydoun Taslimi Cofounder.
“Or even measure recovery after an operation or procedure”
CareAlert will be available for shipping in 1Q2020 and can be ordered at
