The Howz Service sends easy to digest live information direct to your Smartphone, PC or Tablet.
Peace of mind a loved one is well at home
Sensors around your loved one’s home track their activity to let you know they’re going about their day as normal. See their activity in real-time in an easy-to-use smartphone app.
Get alerted to changes in their routine
A change in routine such as waking in the night or getting up later can indicate something’s not right. Howz learns the routine and notices if something’s not happening as normal. You’ll receive an alert to your phone so you can check everything is okay.
Share the support with your care group
You can invite as many people as you need to use the app and share the support. Anyone with permission can securely check the activity feed and receive alerts.
Non-intrusive, secure and private
The sensors are easy for you to set up and sit discreetly around the home. Your loved one won’t need to remember to do or wear anything for the kit to work. With no need for cameras, you can check-in without intruding on their privacy.
Step 1 - Home Hub
The home hub is the central part of every Howz Kit, it connects through your internet router via an ethernet cable and collects all the data from the other sensors. This is so that the information can be constantly fed through to any devices of your choosing, such as a smart phone or laptop.
Step 2 – Door Sensor
The door sensor will monitor each time the door opens and closes so you know when someone has gone out or returned home. It will also send out an alert via the Howz Service whenever the door has been left open for a significant amount of time.
Step 3 - Motion Sensor
As we value our customers privacy our sensors aren't fitted with any cameras or microphones, instead we use passive infrared (PIR) sensors which trigger when a person passes by. This confirms that there is movement in the home, additionally it will detect unexpected movement, in the event the home is left vacant.
Step 4 - Smart Plug
Howz recommends the smart plug is connected to a regularly used appliance such as a kettle or toaster. These appliances require frequent and manual activation which confirms the person is up and about. The plug will notify you via the Howz Service when an appliance has been used.
You’ll start seeing activity on the app straight away. After about 7 days the app will have learnt your loved one’s routine and will recommend alerts for you.
