Using data collected from sensors installed around the building, Atamate effectively monitors occupants. The data is used to spot anomalies in behaviour, at the same time as ensuring that they building is kept warm, safe and comfortable.
Additional sensors and motors are easily incorporated into an existing EcoControls or Smart Building system to ensure that any new requirements are covered - this can include window motors for easy opening and closing of windows, or bed monitor sensors.
If Atamate EcoControls and Smart Buildings are already installed giving increased comfort, reduced energy, and peace of mind, the same system that has been monitoring your building and improving its performance can be used to monitor occupants.
The key is to design your home and for longevity - some functionality may not be used until it becomes relevant - window motors when wrist strength fails, telephony, voice activated control.
The world and UK population getting older. According to the UK Office for National Statistics, in 50 years time (2068) there are likely to be 8.6 million people aged 65 and over. Pensions are already the largest item of welfare expenditure in 2016, with State Pension provision accounting for 4.6% of gross domestic product (GDP) in the UK, and public spending on health has risen from 4.4% of GDP to 6.9% over the same period.

People want to live in a house that is appropriate for them, and ideally one that they can stay in for as long as possible.
Building homes that have EcoControls are cost effective to run and that have smart home features is ideal for a buyer of any age.
Offering a home that can discreetly provide more help and assistance as the occupants get older is even more powerful.
Moving from an existing home into sheltered accommodation or more specialist facilities is expensive and disruptive. This is where Atamate Independent Living comes in.
Caring for a family member is stressful and can be hard for everyone. Atamate Independent Living takes some of that anxiety away by providing timely relevant information to family members.

Family members are alerted of problems through Atamate's message service. These messages would escalate in case of no response. If the first person doesn’t respond, a message will be sent to the second etc.
If there is a warden, the family member would be able to receive messages from them confirming that problems had been resolved.
People often move out of their home as they become less physically able but are not in need of intense medical care.
They are at higher risk of tripping and having falls which can be dangerous, especially if they are living alone.

Entry and access
Not only do entry systems and intercoms allow occupants to see who is visiting, but they also hold a record of who has visited.
Night time wandering
CO2 and motion sensors and pressure sensors in bedside mat or doorway to pick up on movement in the night
Door sensors to show where the occupant is wandering
Sensor on bathroom door to show many bathroom trips - can detect possibility of UTI
Keeping safe and secure is important to all of us at all stages of life. Atamate can give you or relatives and carers peace of mind that their loved ones are cared for.
A warden can see a simple view of all properties that are in their portfolio.
Atamate Building Performance alerts the warden of problems using a traffic light system.
Green is no problem, yellow is a potential/developing problem, red is a problem that needs to be addressed.
When integrated onto a calendar with scheduled activity for the house - eg when an occupant is on holiday, or when a carer is visiting this can add another layer of safety.
The warden can not see what’s happening in the house and logs of behaviour, but prioritise issues that need attention.
When the warden clicks on an issue they are presented with options: view more information and activity, call 999, contact family member etc.
