What is Eila Connect?

Eila Connect is an assistive technology system that aims to empower elderly people to live independently in their own homes while providing peace of mind to their loved ones or caregivers. It utilises a system of sensors to monitor various activities such as getting out of bed in the morning, returning home after a trip out, or front door left open as well as detecting possible falls.  The system ensures timely alerts and notifications to ensure the safety and well-being of elderly individuals.

Eila Connect involves our team installing sensors throughout the home of an elderly individual. These sensors are designed to detect activities and events that may pose a risk to their safety, such as floods, fires, open doors, or falls.
