Smarthomes for seniors

Age-friendly and safe smart homes for senior citizens: JAMESmakes it possible.

Terms such as digitizationand innovative technologies are now firmly embedded in our consciousness. However, not only our vocabulary is changing, but also our immediate environment. The current trend of transforming one’s own home into an everyday-supporting smarthome with intelligent assistance systems – such as Amazon’s Alexa – is already widespread among younger generations and is now also gradually arriving among older groups of people.

Although many senior citizens are still sceptical about innovative technologies, smart assistance systems can make life in their own homes sustainably easier, more comfortable and, above all, more pleasant. above all, saferin the long term. As an intelligent emergency call system, As an intelligent emergency call system, Consequently, nothing stands in the way of “moving into” one’s own smarthome and thus into the digital age.

Smarthome example from the Kerngesund family

Peter in his new smarthome.
Peter in his new smarthome.

Peter Kerngesund is 76 and has lived alone in his large house for several years. Until now, he has done everyday tasks himself, but despite regular exercise, Peter is no longer as agile as he was a few years ago. The senior citizen is plagued by back pain. Peter’s son Gerhard lives with his family in a smart flat in Vienna and is enthusiastic about the advantages of the new technologies. After the encouragement of his son, Peter now also decided to convert his house into a smarthome.

From now on JAMESand Alexa(Amazon) provide more safetyand comfort. The newly networked AAL(active and assisted living) smarthome makes Peter’s everyday life easier by automating tedious or strenuous daily tasks through digitally controlled routines, thus creating more leisure time and comfort:

In addition to the all-encompassing Alexahome optimisation (networking and control of light, room temperature, music and TV, coffee machine, lawn robot, etc.), JAMESmakes Peter’s life easier with a mobile home emergency call, video telephony, the measurement and assessment of vital signs and reminders to take important medication, and much more.

Thanks to the unbeatable helper duo JAMESand Alexa, Peter’s life has changed from the ground up: He now lives under the sign of the JAMES core areas of SAFETY, HEALTH and COMMUNITY and thus has more time and energy for family and friends.

The advantages of an AAL smart home at a glance:


For example, a more comfortable life is provided by digital services that are networked with furnishings and household appliances (air conditioning, coffee machines, household, pool, and mowing robots, etc.) and can be controlled by voice commands.


Pedometers, scales, sugar and blood pressure monitors, etc. coupled with apps or smart devices can help to keep an eye on important health data and have it professionally evaluated. The JAMES Vital Sensors, in connection with the JAMES Station, allow the viewing of personal vital parameters and their clarification by a qualified nurse (optional service). In addition, nursing staff and doctors can be consulted at any time with the help of the age-optimised video telephony function of the JAMES Station.


Isolation and boredom? Not with JAMES!
A smart emergency call system is the main focus of JAMES. Nevertheless, the interlinked areas of community and entertainment contribute immensely to the common good of older people. The automation of your own home opens up a whole new dimension of entertainment. For example, assistance systems enable the central control of televisions, lights, loudspeakers, blinds, etc. With its age-friendly software, theJAMES Station also offers easy communication options (video telephony, voice connection, chat) with family, friends and specialist staff as well as a variety of games and Internet services (YouTube, digital newspaper, radio, etc.).


A pair like no other – JAMES meets Alexa!
Smart homes thus guarantee optimum protection for their residents. The unique combination of JAMES TeleCare and Alexa makes your home even safer: JAMES’mobile home emergency call at the touch of a button becomes a home emergency call with Alexa’shelp by voice command:“Alexa, JAMES!
