Helping those who need it most —video technology supports home automation
The integration of MOBOTIX technology into home automation has enabled a 30-year-old woman in Bergamo to live as independently as possible. The 26-year-old woman suffered paraplegia of the legs and arms as a result of an accident at work. With the help of an Apple iPod Touch on her wrist, MOBOTIX technology, and the LivingTECH App, the patient can perform over 50 functions independently in the house.
Five 360-degree MOBOTIX cameras are installed in every room of the house. The patient, family, and doctors can communicate via an IP video door station. The video system guarantees safety for the woman when she is alone at home. Around the clock, she can talk directly to people inside or outside the house or make phone calls while still maintaining her independence. The relatives are thus noticeably relieved. This is a real benefit for both parties and improves the quality of life.
We opted for MOBOTIX solely on the basis of technical considerations. We chose the best the market had to offer, since we wanted excellent quality. We chose MOBOTIX cameras not only because of the quality of their images, which is superior to that provided by all similar technologies, but also because they are equipped with an integrated web server for managing and processing the images. This minimizes the bandwidth and space necessary for data archiving and eliminates the need to install any additional or customized software on the PC or any other external devices.
