Vayyar To Provide Fall Detection Powered By Touchless Technology Compatible With New Amazon Alexa Together Service

Vayyar Imaging, the Israeli supplier of 4D imaging radar-based solutions, has teamed up with Amazon to make Vayyar Care, Vayyar’s touchless fall detection solution, compatible with the new Alexa Together service from Amazon, launching today. 

Wall-mounted sensors use point cloud imaging technology to constantly monitor their surroundings, providing peace of mind while respecting privacy. Vayyar Care detects falls in all lighting conditions, including pitch darkness, and even dense steam, making it ideal for use in bathrooms where 80% of falls happen and where customers may not want to have cameras. 

After a fall, standard buttons and cords are often out of reach and even wearables cannot guarantee round-the-clock protection: a third of seniors forget to put on their devices, while a fifth refuse to use them, fearing loss of independence.

In fact, over 90% of seniors now prefer to continue to live independently rather than move into an assisted living community. 

When the Vayyar Care device detects a fall, it will send a signal to Alexa to ask if the customer wants to call the Alexa Together Urgent Response emergency helpline. Alexa will also send a notification to the aging loved one’s caregiver. 

Vayyar Care builds on the global success of the company’s B2B platform, which provides real-time fall detection and supports advanced activity analytics for senior living communities in the U.S., EU, China, Australia, and beyond. 

The multifunctional sensing technology relies on low-power radio frequency waves, providing a safe, robust, and reliable solution for elderly people who want 24/7 protection without compromising their privacy or independence. 

Vayyar Care is available now from amazon.com.
