Current tech either solely monitors one aspect of the environment or one aspect of health. This means that people can miss out on understanding the valuable correlations between what’s happening in their homes and the direct impact on their health.
MyGlobalHome’s vision for the future seeks to connect information and understanding to create homes that look after their occupants and not the other way around.
One of our founders, Dan, had a similar experience when he had a respiratory event and collapsed on his driveway in search of aid. Had Dan known that the air quality was hazardous to his respiratory health that day, he would have been able to take preventive measures.
Instances like this can be easily prevented by better communication between the different smart technologies present in people’s homes. When working collaboratively, devices like environmental sensors and personal wearables can combine their knowledge, providing better targeted insights for a broad range of health conditions.
Beyond implementing smart devices that can monitor and automate, we are creating environments that are able to analyse context-rich data to provide more valuable insights. This will be incredibly helpful in monitoring anything from serious underlying health conditions to general fitness.
MyGlobalHome are working with partners to develop better systems and connectivity in the home, to enable homes to take better care of their occupants.
