Elderly people offer a lot to society - wisdom, experience, knowledge - and it is important that we take care of our aged community to ensure they feel safe and secure at all times.
According to the University of Melbourne, 13 per cent of Australia's population in 2010 was over the age of 65 years old, and that number is predicted to rise to around 20 per cent by 2050.
That is why many companies are now offering innovative new technology aimed at ensuring quality of life for the elderly, such as the senior watch function which is provided free of charge with the Bosch Ultima 880, Bosch Solution 16 Plus and Bosch Solution 16i home alarm systems.
Many of us have a parent, grandparent or other aged person, who we would like to be able to check in with regularly to ensure they are safe and comfortable.
Unfortunately, life often gets in the way. With work and home commitments, sometimes it is just not possible to take time out of every day to visit our elderly relatives in person.
Bosch security systems offer peace of mind by utilising a Senior Watch feature which can keep you informed about the wellbeing of the aged people in your life.
By monitoring movement inside the elderly person's home, Senior Watch can ensure that they are up and mobile throughout the day.
If no movement is detected over a 24 hour period, then Senior Watch will automatically send you a message.
This means that if an accident was to occur, and an elderly person who you cared about were to be injured or worse, you can be automatically notified that there is a problem.
Bosch security solutions can also come equipped with the RF3503E Panic‑Medical Fob, a wireless two-button transmitter that can send a signal back to the alarm system in the case of an emergency.
With a range of up to 100 metres and a five year battery life, these transmitters are the perfect tool for ensuring that an elderly person who finds themselves in need of urgent assistance can get the help they need.
So why not pay a visit to the elderly people in your life, sit down over a cup of tea and discuss the possibility of installing a Bosch security system today.
