I am currently working on a project to provide smart home solution for seniors to enable them to live independently, safely and comfortably. 1 in 4 people in Canada will be over the age of 65 in 10 years and survey shows that majority of seniors prefer to age at home. That creates opportunities as well as challenges, especially for their family caregivers who are concerned about the well-being of their parents. The first pain point we want to address is unattended cooking fire, which is the leading cause of home fires and injuries. Living independently only makes sense if safety is ensured. Our product will alert the seniors if they forget to turn off fire.
