We care about the impact we make; we care about the team we create; we make complex technologies simple and accessible.

Our Why: Social Connection and Home Safety

In today’s world, social isolation is a pressing issue, especially for the elderly and those with cognitive or physical disabilities. Ensuring that vulnerable people can live safely and independently at home has never been more important, whether they live alone in their family home or as part of a retirement or aged-care community.

As a team of smart, dedicated and passionate individuals we have made it our mission to tackle this challenge head-on. We’ve done this by building a remarkable platform designed to enrich lives and we have the success stories that prove its effectiveness.

From home automation and emergency duress systems to voice-activation, VoiP, messaging, and calendar and medication management – our comprehensive platform caters to diverse needs.

At the core of this ecosystem is our custom hardware – a large, (soon to be voice-activated) touchscreen smarthub – running on a customized version of Android, along with seamless integration with smartphones and tablets.
