64% of consumer 50 and older are interested in home monitoring system that can sense emergencies and notify caretakers
Parks Associates today announced Sarah Jones, VP of Commercial Product, Great Call, as the first confirmed keynote speaker for the sixth-annual Connected Health Summit: Independent Living and Wellness, August 27-29 at the Pendry San Diego in San Diego, California. The firm’s independent living research finds 64% of heads of US broadband households 50 and older are interested in a home system that can sense emergencies and send out notifications.
Connected Health Summit will explore new strategies and innovations that will expand and improve independent living solutions for consumers and caretakers, including innovative monitoring and smart home solutions, and examine consumer adoption and usage of connected health technologies and key adjacencies between smart home, healthcare, and independent living ecosystems. Early Sponsors include HP, MDLIVE, Alarm.com, Freeus, Rapid Response Monitoring, and GiftCard Partners.
“The push to engage consumers outside of the facility, combined with advances in consumer technology, have created several distinct markets for connected health products and services,” said Elizabeth Parks, President, Parks Associates. “We expect to see the lines between these markets blur as care providers experiment with consumer devices as part of their remote patient monitoring programs and as consumer solutions integrate virtual care services into their offerings. Technology companies are now realizing the incredible opportunity to serve the growing market of seniors with devices and services that fit their unique needs and desires.”
Parks Associates research shows more than one-third of people in US broadband households are current caregivers or will be in the near future, and they rank emergency alerts as the most valuable home living feature.
“Many smart home solutions are well positioned to deliver on these key independent living use cases while also providing a valuable user experience to caretakers,” Parks said. “Great Call, recently acquired by Best Buy, is a leader in delivering independent living solutions, and we look forward to sharing insight with attendees on key adjacencies between the smart home and connected health.”

With FAA’s blessing, that drone over your house may be Google’s Wing, not Amazon’s | #TpromoCom #Drone #Google #FAA | Wing, the drone delivery service spun off from Alphabet’s Google, hopes to start flights to homes and businesses in the Blacksburg and Christiansburg areas by the end of the year now that it has the blessings of the Federal Aviation Administration.
The FAA announced earlier this week that it had approved Wing as the first air carrier certified for drone delivery. In receiving the certification, Wing beat Amazon to the punch despite all the attention that the online merchandise giant has drawn over its interest in deliveries by air.
Both companies, along with others, have been racing to develop drones as a more cost-effective way of delivering small, high-value orders, like medicine. But drone delivery can have big drawbacks, with limitations on the weight of their cargo and the time it takes to recharge them between deliveries.

New Integrator RMR Opportunities with an Outdoor Video Surveillance System that Thinks and Acts Like a Human | #TpromoCom #Memoreyes #Security #Integrators | New Opportunities for Qualified Integrators to Participate in a National Dealer Program.
ATLANTA (April 10, 2019) — MemoreyesTM, the developer of a smart, first-of-its-kind, revolutionary outdoor video surveillance system, is looking for qualified integrators to participate in its national dealer program.
The company will provide
integrators with training that centers on its patent-pending,
Megapixel/HD–quality, pan-tilt-zoom camera system with machine
learning. Memoreyes’ unique video offering provides an
unprecedented set of advanced, almost human-like capabilities.
“Integrators are a key part of our business plan,” says Memoreyes Founder and CEO John Collings. “Our Model 360 goes far beyond traditional outdoor cameras and opens up new opportunities for them with an entirely new commercial customer base and an entirely new category of managed services.”
Using thermal, sound, and radar sensors, the system analyzes 360-degree target data and focuses on situational awareness for personal and property protection. The system directs cameras to an event and ensures that the system identifies, tracks, and records any unusual behavioral patterns, accidents, altercations, or loud noises such as a gunshot.
Thanks to this new
technology, the Memoreyes system can quickly differentiate between
authorized individuals and potentially hostile targets. Through
machine learning, it also intuitively anticipates potential risks and
automatically responds to evolving situations using light, sound, and
voice messaging. Over time the system learns the habits and trends
associated with each camera within each specific setting, enabling it
to quickly identify departures from the norm.
Collings, the original designer and founder of Uplink cellular service, says that one of the company’s biggest hurdles was to create a facility-wide WiFi system that would reliably work in an outside environment. With that solved, strategically positioned cameras now work in tandem to provide 360-degree tracking of residents, visitors, and vehicles on the property on an as-need basis. This means that the system can cover large outdoor areas with a handful of cameras as opposed to traditional systems that often require dozens or even hundreds to do the same job.
While the primary
objective of the Memoreyes Model 360 system is to deter crime, a
second benefit is the documentation of data collected before, during,
and after an event has taken place. With its high-definition video,law enforcement can rely on this data for
arrest purposes and a conviction in a court of law.
“We don’t rely on
standard pixel-following methodology. Our sophisticated software is
continually sampling the environment, analyzing visual and auditory
inputs against known patterns,” explains Memoreyes Co-Founder and
CTO David Tattersall. “At the same time, we have adopted
comprehensive privacy policies, which protects owners, property
managers, and residents alike.”
The complete system also
includes an Entry/Exit Monitoring System that provides video of all
oncoming, passing, and departing vehicles. This includes clear and
concise license plate reading, even at night or in bad weather.
Beyond the revolutionary
technology is the price point. Because the system can cover large
outdoor areas with only a handful of cameras, the cost savings can be
substantial, as much as 75 percent less than alternative systems. The
company offers an affordable leasing program which will save end
users money in both the short and long term.
Memoreyes was founded
by John Collings and David Tattersall in 2014 to provide an
innovative and revolutionary outdoor video surveillance system that
would improve safety and deter criminal activity at multi-family
housing, hospitals, campuses, office complexes, malls, and retail
outlets. The concept grew
from a multi-family housing owner’s request to make their
surveillance cameras do more to deliver better
security for residents. By utilizing machine learning along with
advanced sensor technology that makes the camera think and act like a
human being, the new system is transforming outdoor security.
Comprehensive and affordable, Memoreyes offers unprecedented
situational awareness for personal and property protection and is
local installation and support technicians.
The company is based in Atlanta, Ga.
