Why I Think Home is the Best Smart Speaker for the Elderly

Over the past couple of months we’ve experienced some challenging times and not a lot of good news stories. We were particularly excited to receive a call from customer Gay Ochiltree who wanted to give us some positive feedback about her Home smart speaker. We asked if she would tell us more about her experience so we could share it with other older people living at home on their own. Here’s what Gay had to say about why she believes the Home is the best smart speaker for the elderly.

“It’s made me feel safe and more independent”

I’d been looking at getting a monitoring system in my home for some time. I’d  become more aware that there are many risks to living on my own as an elderly person. Falls and strokes seem to be common with people of my age. That’s when I was introduced to the Home smart speaker.

The concept is very simple. There are sensors that were placed around my home which built up a pattern of how I behave. If I’ve gone out the back yard and don’t come back in, it knows that there is something wrong. It will alert a family member or friend so they know something is out of the ordinary.

It says things like ‘I hope you had a good night’s sleep?’ and ‘have a nice day’. I found this very comforting because I feel like I have someone looking out for me, keeping me company.

I don’t need to do anything except go about my normal routine. There is no need to learn anything new or behave any differently than I normally do.  It has made me feel so safe and more independent as I know if I need help someone will be notified.

What would you say to someone thinking about getting a smart speaker?

I would definitely recommend the TEQ-Home Activity Monitor to anyone. I think it’s the best smart speaker for an elderly person who wishes to remain independent and remain living at home.

Since I’ve had the Home I do feel a lot safer as I know that is something happens to me, the Home will let someone know. I’ve heard too many terrible stories of people who have fallen and left for ages. There was no one to notify family or emergency responders and I never want to be one of those people.
