Zahvaljujući modernoj tehnologiji, danas je moguće paziti na starije i nemoćne osobe koje žive same.

Kompanija Infometis osmislila je aplikaciju Infocare koja prati električne uređaje u kućanstvu te njihove abnormalnosti. Primjerice, aplikacija alarmira ukoliko je pećnica uključena dulje od sat vremena, jer to najvjerojatnije ukazuje da ju je starija osoba zaboravila isključiti nakon korištenja.

Ova je aplikacija korisna djeci koja se žele brinuti za svoje starije roditelje, ali nisu u mogućnosti fizički biti sa njima cijelo vrijeme. Ovo je još jedan odličan primjer kako nam električni uređaji mogu olakšati svakodnevicu i brigu o bližnjima.

Thanks to new technologies, it is nowadays possible to keep an eye on elderly or vulnerable people who are living alone, without their children or nurses to take care of them all day.

An application called Infocare and offered by the company Informetis use a technology called non-intrusive load monitoring (NILM) which allows knowing at every time the consummation of electronic objects of a house and if something looks abnormal (for example, if the oven it stayed lit more than one hour which could significate that the old person had forgotten to put it off).

This kind of technology looks really helpful for children who want to take care of their parents but who couldn’t be with them at every moment. In this way, we have another example of how new technologies can be useful for daily life and self-care.
