Where the Idea Started

In 2016 John Robertson was introduced by the CDC to the growing market to help seniors age in place. What John discovered were families worrying about their loved ones. They wanted more information and peace of mind without compromising privacy. Non-intrusive monitoring was born. Leverage sensors and cloud based AI to provide peace of mind without cameras, listening devices or wearables.
