Smart Activity Sensor

The name Sentinare is coined from the words Sentinel and Care, because it’s a guardian for your loved ones.

By detecting human activities using a built-in AI chip, Sentinare can collect activity statistics, and send alerts when emergencies such as falls, overstays, and absences are detected. It’s an ideal tool to take care of seniors, especially those living alone.

Unlike regular cameras that transmit videos, Sentinare uses an AI chip to convert people to stick figures, and only transmits the stick figures to the cloud and app, protecting privacy from end to end.

Sentinare was a CES 2021 Innovation Awards Honoree. It was also one of only three fall detection devices in Amazon Alexa Together emergency service, with the best review. Although Alexa Together will be discontinued from June 2024, the Sentinare system will continue to operate seamlessly.

Typical Applications

Caring of seniors in all settings, from aging at home to long-term care

Remote monitoring of patients with chronic or behavioral diseases

Managing the services of home caregivers

Privacy Protection

Privacy-preserving stick figures are transmitted instead of videos, allowing the sensor to be placed anywhere in the home.

Activity Recognition

Sentinare can recognize simple activities such as standing, sitting, and lying (with more to come). This allows it to collect statistics and encourage a healthier lifestyle.

Fall Detection & Prevention

In Canada, falls are the main cause of injury for seniors: 20-30% fall at least once a year, and 50% of all serious falls happen at home.

The good news? Sentinare can detect falls and perform fall risk assessments to help prevent them.

Region-of-Interest Monitoring

Use the Sentinare app to define whom and what to monitor. For example, receive alerts when a dementia patient enters a restricted region, or when overstay/absence events are detected.

Sentinare App

Use the Sentinare mobile app to manage Sentinare sensors, receive alerts, check loved one’s activities, and more. For desktop/laptop users, there is the Sentinare Web browser app

"Sentinare is very useful for monitoring activities of daily living. Most seniors spend their time either in bed or on a chair. It would be really useful to track that for caregivers and giving them guidance. "
