Tech for safety at home

I’ve just read about Linksys Wellness Pods. It seems that the days of the “help, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” style of home monitoring for seniors (or anyone) may be past. See https://www.slashgear.com/linksys-wellness-pods-track-elderly-with-wi-fi-signals-06605210/

These pods (put aside your images of alien visitation B-movies) apparently are to be scattered around your house. They can detect motion, including falls, and also breathing and sleep patterns.

They haven’t come to market yet, but it probably won’t be long. What do you think of these new devices? Would you want this, or is it too much surveillance for your comfort?

  1. Depends on the situation. Right now I’m using a couple of security cameras. I’m considering adding a watch for him to wear that will alert me for falls, etc. There are a lot of options on the market now.
