SOFIhome

A personalised and proactive companion around the home, SOFIhome spoken reminders encourage positive living and adherence to health-related routines.
Through intelligent monitoring of movement, it also detects variation in activity or behaviour, and automatically initiates alerts to the appropriate contacts. All of this is achieved without video or audio surveillance; SOFIhome does not compromise an individual’s right to privacy.

GPS Trackers

The keyring-sized Sofihub beacon can issue an emergency SOS to multiple people at the touch of a button. Equipped with global positioning and mobile network technology, it can instantly pinpoint a person’s location and enable immediate voice contact via built in speaker phone.

Personal Alarm System

Around the home, our technology provides spoken reminders to promote positive living and adherence to health-related routines. It also detects and alerts carers to variations in activity or behaviour. Away from home, our keyring-sized personal technology can issue an SOS alert to three people simultaneously, pinpoint its location through global positioning, and enable immediate contact via the built-in speaker phone.

Independence

Combining the two SOFIhub products has been known to reduce dependency on professional care providers. A personalised smart speaker for elderly around the home, SOFIhome’s spoken reminders encourage engaged independent living.

Automated Notifications

Care providers and family members are able to be notified via messages and the online portal when their loved ones haven’t taken their medication or engaged in important activities at certain times.

All-day Personal Assistance

If you’ve ever wished that you had a personal assistant on-hand to remind you of all the things you’re supposed to be doing each day, then you might benefit from the support of the SOFIhome solution.

Time-based Messages

Time-based messages play at a specific time according to user needs. SOFIhome’s intelligent messaging system can remind your loved ones when they have an appointment or when they miss their medication, saving you from the worry.

SOFIhome tells me to do certain things like take my medication, eat lunch or whatever I need to do. I think the SOFIhome will help out anyone. It will help them out 100%.

Josh Taylor

SOFIhome has allowed my son to maintain his independence. And with this new technology, I have peace of mind.

Lynette Macdonald

I think one of the good feataures of SOFIhome is that it talks to you, it has a nice voice and its a bit of company. The medication reminders are a really good thing because sometimes I do forget.
