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
