Competitive solutions are reliant upon traditional phone lines or broadband to connect their remote caregiving systems
McLean, VA and Orlando, FL (PRWEB) March 22, 2011
BeClose.com, a leading provider of remote caregiving systems, today announced that its wireless home monitoring solution leverages the nationwide network of T-Mobile USA, Inc. for both real-time data transmission and two-way voice connectivity.
On average, assisted living facilities in America can cost $200 per day and full-time in-home nursing can cost thousands per month. As an alternative, for as little as $1.50 per day, customers can install a simple customizable system of unobtrusive, wireless sensors that transmit information to BeClose.com. Then, caregivers can log in to a secure web dashboard that monitors daily activities and provides real-time alerts via email, text message and automated voice calls. Further, when the resident presses a panic button, a two-way voice call is initiated with the BeClose 24/7 central station partners over the T-Mobile network, whereby emergency responders can be dispatched as needed.
“Competitive solutions are reliant upon traditional phone lines or broadband to connect their remote caregiving systems,” says Liddy Manson, President of BeClose.com. “This approach could be shortsighted as traditional phone lines increasingly are being replaced by VoIP and mobile phones, and broadband connections are prone to interruptions and rarely have battery back-up. With the real-time, always-on BeClose wireless monitoring system powered by the T-Mobile network, customers have the peace of mind that their loved one is going through their daily routines successfully.”
“Unique telehealth systems, like that offered by BeClose.com, are becoming increasingly important for those individuals that require monitoring, but desire continued independence,” said John Horn, National Director of M2M at T-Mobile USA. “We expect telehealth solutions like this one to contribute significantly to the growth of connected devices over the coming years.”
A key aspect of the BeClose system is its dedicated, real-time cellular channel to the home, which allows for additional customer savings. Not only are competitive alternatives more expensive on a standalone basis, but they also typically require the installation of a broadband connection or a second phone line, something the BeClose solution does not need.
