Advanced speech recognition technology The system requires no wearables, so it’s available even when the senior cannot activate a panic buttonHighlighting its stand at the event will be the Care@Home Communicator, which is a significant differentiator for Essence SmartCare’s full line of smart Telecare technologies. They range from emergency alerting to a professional intelligent activity monitoring solution. Using advanced speech recognition technology – Intelligent Voice Activation (IVATM) – the Communicator’s two-way communication is activated only when a senior calls out a specific phrase that identifies that person is calling for help. The system requires no wearables, so it’s available even when the senior cannot activate a panic button. The Communicator immediately opens a two-way communication channel to the monitoring station, allowing them to get further details about the emergency to send an appropriate response.
