Using a non-intrusive system of sensors, IBM Watson machine learning and automatic data communication, a partner application flags exceptions to routines and habits, such as whether your client has got out of bed, is sitting in a chair, has boiled the kettle and so on. It has been developed specifically to promote independent, home living for the elderly, infirm, those living with Alzheimer’s or dementia and to enable early release from hospital for other clients where monitoring is required.
IBM and their partner needed to source 3G/4G and Ethernet IoT gateways with the capability to send sensor data to IBM Watson. There was a need to capture data from a range of energy harvesting sensors in an individual’s home and send the relevant information to IBM’s Watson platform.
IAconnects built a gateway specific to the needs of IBM, using our MobiusFlow software to create tailored flows and API connections into the IBM Watson platform.
- MobiusFlow Edge 3G/4G or Ethernet IoT Gateway
- Window and Door open/close sensors
- Room occupancy detection (PIRs)
- Temperature and Humidity sensors
- Call/ Alert Button
- Bed Pressure Sensor
IBM were able to define a repeatable solution that can be pre-commissioned before being installed in a client’s home, allowing minimal disruption to the client.
