Activity Monitoring

In The System

Activity/multi-sensor sensor

  • Scenario:
  • If the patient goes to the bathroom between 11pm and 7am and has not returned to bed within 10 minutes an alert will be sent to the primary carer.
  • Rule:
  • Using a directional motion sensor by the bedside, we set up a rule within grandcare that states if the motion detector is triggered between the hours of 11pm and 7am, from when the motion is detected the system will count down from 10 minutes. If motion is detected within the 10 minutes the individual is ok. If not, the rule will send a pre-recorded message to the designated carer.

Door sensor

  • Scenario:
  • Father walks the dog at 10.30pm for 20 minutes, if he has not returned by 11pm an alert will be sent to the primary carer.
  • Rule:
  • Using a door sensor, we set up a rule to state that if the door is opened after 10.30pm and has not been reopened and closed by 11pm an alert will be sent to the primary carer via text/call or email.

Smart switch

  • Scenario:
  • Father wakes at 3am to go to the bathroom, by triggering the activity sensor this turns on the lamp via the smart switch and turns off when he returns to bed.
  • Rule:
  • Between 11pm and 7am if the activity sensor is triggered, switch on lamp via smart switch, when activity is detected again switch lamp off.


  • Scenario:
  • If mother's daily routine starts to go out of sync, for example between the hours of 11pm and 7am she starts wandering around, going downstairs numerous times throughout the night, opening the fridge or opening the external door.
  • Rule:
  • If excessive movement is detected over a period of three nights then an alert will be sent. This can also be backed up with, if the exterior door is opened between these times any night to alert the individual that "It's 3am, go back to bed", this would also send an alert to a family member.
