Sigue a La Prensa en Facebook

Extending on the success of the Numera Libris mobile personal safety
and emergency response solution, Nortek Security & Control delivers new
EverThere Health & Wellness service allowing care teams to proactively
track, interact and engage with seniors and those living with chronic
conditions.

CARLSBAD, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nortek
Security & Control LLC
, a Nortek, Inc. company (Nasdaq: NTK),
and a leader in health and wellness technology and connected home
solutions, announces Numera® EverThere®, a health and safety solution
for healthy aging, which connects seniors with their loved ones through
real-time monitoring and timely notifications. Working in conjunction
with the Numera Libris® device, EverThere facilitates a proactive,
team-based approach to caring for elders and ill or disabled family
members. EverThere gives caregivers visibility into an individual’s
health and wellness, including their daily activities, their movement,
and their location— all directly connected through this cloud service.


Today, health management and safety products are largely reactive – you
fall and are unable to get up, you push a button. Numera EverThere
changes this paradigm by integrating personal safety and emergency
response with a proactive cloud-monitoring service so seniors and their
families have the tools to track and share important health and activity
information, allowing for proactive engagement and intervention.

EverThere is a service and an open cloud platform that works with the
Numera Libris, a 3G connected, GPS-enabled two-way voice communication
device, which can issue instant, customized notifications to caregivers
and loved ones. For instance, members of the care team can choose to be
notified by email or text if a fall occurs, no motion has been detected
for a predetermined amount of time, an emergency is reported, or if
other events occur. The single button pendant connects directly to
emergency services so a user is never alone or helpless.

“In focusing on helping seniors live healthier longer, we believe it’s
important to include family members, neighbors and close personal
friends for encouragement, support, and to a degree, accountability for
adhering to their treatment plans. Numera EverThere’s analytics engine
provides timely insight into a senior’s overall health and wellness, and
proactive notifications of important health and safety events,” said Tim
Smokoff, group vice president health & wellness, Nortek Security &
Control.

The EverThere cloud service links personal security with Nortek’s
market-leading home security and control systems and brings together
active plus passive monitoring, both home and away.

“Over time, EverThere’s Health & Wellness service will allow our
dealers, service providers and partners in the home/connected business
market to build upon EverThere’s open platform, allowing them to further
differentiate their offerings,” said Rob Halligan, group vice president
of marketing for Nortek Security & Control.
