Essence SmartCare partners with WSH to advance senior care across Germany

Essence SmartCare, a leader in IoT-based remote care solutions, has announced that its voice-activated emergency call solution has been selected by leading German security provider WSH for integration into the Smardian IoT-based independent living alarm system.

The agreement makes WSH, a subsidiary of Switzerland’s Securitas Group, the first German service provider to offer full-coverage touchless emergency solutions with advanced voice-activated technology.

Using Essence SmartCare’s Care@Home technology, the Smardian platform can detect emergency situations, triggered vocally in every room in the home, locate the person in need and establish a direct line of communication between the senior and their relatives or the WSH emergency call centre. To date, over 1,000 WSH customers across Germany have been provided with the Smardian solution, with many more units set to be rolled out by the end of the year.

“We are delighted to be partnering with WSH for this essential project, providing seniors and vulnerable individuals across Germany access to advanced telecare services that can significantly improve their lives and overall feeling of safety,” said Barak Katz, General Manager of Essence SmartCare. “Our advanced technology is helping to make homes safer, enabling seniors to live more independent lives while providing peace of mind to them and their families.”

The Care@Home Communicator, part of Essence’s Care@Home product suite, is a wireless emergency solution featuring integrated intelligent voice activation. The system provides an additional layer of safety by allowing users to call for aid, even when they cannot reach their panic button.
