Healthcare Companies vs. Security Companies

Many technology companies sell products that can report when someone enters a room, or opens a door. This is basic technology that is generally used by companies that sell home security systems. It is important when considering technologies that will support independent living to look at the ability of the sensors to speak with each other. Advanced sensor technology allows for sequential programing. This means that you can know if a person has left the kitchen, and the stove is still on. You can know if someone went into the bathroom, and did not return to the bedroom. When sensors communicate with each other, it allows for tremendous flexibility in defining rules. This allows for customized settings, to capture information unique to the situation you are trying to support.
