Who We Are

SimplyHome Systems allow family members and caregivers to support their loved ones without being invasive and without having to be there 24/7 ("just in case" there's a need.) The SimplyHome system creates a virtual living environment which tracks specific activities within the home. The system then reports those activities to designated family members or caregivers through alerts and the SimplyHome Web Portal. Installation is simple and allows the caregivers to tailor the living environment to the individual, allowing for increased independence--without inhibiting choice. Instant notifications are sent to designated family, friends, caregivers, case managers or other professionals via email and/ or cell phone call or cell phone text message according to each individual's specific rules. In addition, a Personal Emergency Response (PERS) device is available for the consumer to notify caregivers of an im mediate need for assistance. All of our systems can be used to connect directly with our partner monitoring call center of trained EMT personnel.
