Timing is finally right to build 'smart home' products for seniors. Technology has advanced to the point where we can make powerful devices that can monitor seniors at home unobtrusively and provide the needed care at the right moment, while remain hidden otherwise. Contrast this approach with the in-your-face wearables that may not be suitable for technology-averse seniors. In particular, movements and other habitual behaviors can now be tracked over long periods of time, analyzed using big data technologies to identify meaningful patterns and deviations, compared at a mass scale, allowing us to recognize potential health conditions early and alert the seniors, their families, caregivers and physicians to provide preventative care. We can improve quality of life for seniors, give peace of mind to family members, while decreasing overall health care costs.
