Communication is a broad subject, but a Home Office's main purpose is to communicate with clients, co-workers, family, and friends.
Communication may be an email, phone call, video call, or remote support.
But what about staying in touch with your older friends and family members?
A case Study
My Mother lives nearby but sometimes needs help but doesn’t want to wear a panic button or have live cameras in her home, so she is just using motion sensors.
A camera in the Garage or entryway allows for activity notifications without invading privacy.
- Requires a Wi-Fi network for device connectivity.
- Requires Smart Phone to control Alexa Devices.
By having an Alexa device with motion sensors in each area, when a person needs help they can use voice commands to request assistance and others can be notified if there has been no activity in several hours and/or be notified with the sound effect of any activity.
Motion Sensors not only allow remote monitoring but they can also be used to turn on lights when you enter the garage or other areas.
When needed, person monitoring can listen to Echo Devices in their home to ask if help is needed and they can reply.
Echo Buttons can be used to trigger calls for support, or to trigger other events.
if the person isn't home or it will contact me through their phone.
The Alexa Show devices allow us to have a private video chat that has low latency, and very little delay, allowing a natural conversation.
