Challenges

Smart Risks has developed technology to track the use of electrical appliances and running water in the home of the person concerned. By simply connecting to the grid, the device recognises the typical load curve of a particular household appliance and determines a typical profile for both day and night. When abnormal activity is detected, an alert is sent to the carers or to the appropriate CCAS (municipal social work centres). This way they can check that everything is okay.
