Frequently Asked Questions
1. What types of sensors are available? Where can they be located around the home?
These sensors can be fixed to the wall or other areas of the home. They have a narrow detection beam that focuses on a specific area to ensure the correct motion is detected.
Pressure monitors can be placed under chair legs, or bed legs to detect when they are occupied and are more accurate and less intrusive than pressure pads.
The fridge monitor is placed inside the fridge and detects opening/closing patterns as well as monitoring safe temperature levels. Alerts can be set to trigger when the door is left open or when temperatures deviate from safe levels.
Applicable to many areas, the sensor detects bed occupation, lights left on and room temperature levels. A motion activated night light can be triggered to help prevent falls in the dark when resident gets out of bed
2. How many sensors can you have connected?
There is no real limit to the number of sensors you can monitor using one hub. The hub can detect and report on multiple sensors. Unlike bluetooth, which has a limited range, the MimoCare system can be expanded over greater distances, capable of relaying data from remote units back to the central hub. This is particularly important in Retirement Village scenarios where units can be quite far from the nursing station.
3. Can you monitor a pill box to ensure medication is being taken?
A simple monitor can be affixed to a pill box lid to monitor access to medicines, however it cannot guarantee that they are being taken. Alexa can call out at predefined times to remind to take medication
4. What if we do not have wi-fi?
We can supply a 3G network device that will connect locally using a SIM card.
