Communications technology for social care and assisted living has been growing in importance for some time and the Covid-19 pandemic has shown a greater need for the utilisation of telecare, and the integration of voice and video elements into new care systems and processes. In the UK alone, 1.7 million people are dependent on the support of telecare services to support their independence and safety.
The telecare market, however, is highly fragmented, with many different protocols and standards, making it difficult to incorporate modern technology into legacy solutions. iotcomms.io’s Alarmbridge function addresses this issue by simplifying integrations between different parts of the telecare vendor chain.
Everon’s Lyra platform is a wireless and future proofed, cloud-based solution that provides round the clock support for every stage of a person’s care journey, in any care setting. With Alarmbridge, Everon is able to connect their Lyra platform to Alarm Receiving Centres, to send alarms and enable voice communication between care users and alarm agents. Events from telecare and telehealth sensors are sent through the Lyra platform to Alarmbridge where they are converted to a specified analogue or digital output protocol, and then delivered to the Alarm Receiving Centre.
