The Libris Smart Cradle, plus a new Fall Detector Pendant and smaller wearables provide enhanced functions for more uninterrupted personal safety
Carlsbad, CA – May 3, 2016 –Nortek Security & Control LLC, a Nortek Company (NASDAQ: NTK) a leader in the security, smart home and wellness technology markets, launches an expanded line of complementary products for the Numera® Libris® mPERS system which leverages its industry-leading fall detection and integrated EverThere® cloud-based platform. The Numera Smart Cradle paired with new lightweight wearables can be used for personal safety during daily activities locally within the home and remain connected to the primary Libris mPERS device and deliver data to the EverThere platform.
When leaving the home, the rechargeable battery within the Numera Libris powers the cellular-based mPERS device and can be used to provide advanced fall detection or call for emergency response via two-way voice communication wherever there is a cellular signal. While at home, or when the Libris is charging, users now have the convenience to use a smaller, lighter personal health button to wear as a pendant or on the wrist for bathing, sleeping and other at-home activities. With around-the-clock protection, users and family have peace of mind that in the event of an incident, help can still be reached at any hour, day or night.
Smart Cradle is upgradable via Over-The-Air (OTA) software updates, and supports multiple communication protocols, allowing for future expansion. The personal safety wearables are smaller and lighter than the fully mobile Libris unit, and feature great battery life for long-lasting wear. There are three wearable models, including:
- Fall Detector Pendant with built-in accelerometers and a completely sealed design
- Convertible Help Button with option to wear it as a pendant or on the wrist
- Simple Help Button Pendant with adjustable break-away lanyard
The flagship of these wearables is the Fall Detector Pendant with a configurable help button and fall detection options. Numera’s Fall Detector Pendant features multi-axis sensors that are sensitive to any movement in 3D, leveraging Numera’s proprietary advanced fall detection algorithms and fall assessment capabilities that are derived from real human falls. Both the Libris and the Fall Detector Pendant can notify the monitoring center when a fall is detected, even if the individual is unable to activate the button themselves. Data from both the Libris and the connected wearables is then automatically uploaded to the EverThere cloud platform to keep family and caregivers informed, connected and confident in their loved ones safety.
“We know partners and customers are excited for this product extension of Numera’s state-of-the-art fall detection technology,” said Tim Smokoff, group vice president, health & wellness, Nortek Security & Control. “Increasing the ability for round-the-clock emergency response with personal wearables gives us the ability to deliver a solution that ensures that the user’s personal safety is continuously supported. Seamless integration with EverThere platform and Numera accessories strengthens prevention activities, helps to reduce health related costs and provides means to proactive care management.”
These new accessories for the Numera Libris mPERS system are now available from Numera dealers and/or 2GIG security dealers.
