Market of Implementation

  • Singapore

Problem

Problem 1: Monitoring elderly living alone.
Problem 2: The existing system of using panic button and motion sensors is hard to use and increases the workload of the user.
Problem 3: Most of the elderly monitoring product/service is hard to sustain as the target market is too small compared to a general consumer product. Thus, most of such companies are not able to sustain.

Solution

WALL-E is a smart wall light switch that is easy to install. You just need a wall and a power outlet. The hardware installation takes you less about 1-2 minutes. WALL-E comes with a series of sensor capable of:
  • detecting emergency through abnormal sound (e.g. screaming sound of a person) and motion (e.g. no motion in an occupied room).  SoundEye is capable of monitoring elderly by detecting abnormal sound and motion. A sound such as a person screaming is language independent. Hence the solution is scalable to other countries.
  • programmable buttons: elderly may press the button to execute actions such as voice intercom, controlling lights and electrical appliances. SoundEye WALL-E does not require the user to wear/hold any device all the time.
SoundEye WALL-E is based on the universal design that is meant for seniors living alone and for everyone in making their home smart.
