    With the help of this module, you’ll also be able to add relatives to the database in order to control visits to the assisted living home and its territory. In case you have a security checkpoint you can use Face Recognition module + Face Id to automate the process.

    In case relatives arrive by car the gates can be opened automatically because in a License plate recognition module you can create a white-list for the cars of visitors and staff.

  • The emotional state of elderly peopleis as important as everyday care for them. Intellectual module Face Recognition (Emotions) will notify personnel in a case when some kind of emotion was detected on face (fear, sadness, anger, surprise, etc.). You can save data in .csv report.
  • Having trouble with patients who are not following rules and for example get up when it’s forbidden? Cross-line detector will help you out in such situations. Connect Sending Email, SMS sending, or Sound alarm module to it, this way your personnel will get notifications and act fast.

You can choose the detection zone and time for sending notifications. Starting from version Xeoma 20.30.11, Xeoma has the Slip and Fall detector designed or this purpose: the module is able to recognize even a fall from a chair, as well as an incomplete fall if a person slipped and fell from a small height or lost consciousness and slid down the wall.

  • Privacy of elderly people cannot be violated. Places where specific procedures are done can be blurred with the help of Privacy masking.
  • Sound Events Detector will lower the stress level in the moments when you hear a scream because you don’t need to check on every room, you will already know where the sound is coming from and who is in this room. The module also detects broken glass (e.g. window).
