When people get older, family starts to move away, friends pass on, and you begin to feel less independent and even worse, lonely. Housemate is a way to gain some independence and peace of mind. You are able to play games, listen to audiobooks, listen to music, and more. What makes this different is its ability to know you and your schedule. Housemate gives you daily reminders and suggestions. We understand you love living in your own home and now you can sit a little more comfortable with a Housemate.

Along with the app, there are additional features that will help you get the most out of Housemate. Sensors on the refridgerator notify the caregiver to let them know thier loved one is active. Camera security serves the senior, as well as caregiver, with in indoor cameras and outdoor cameras where the senior can ask to see who’s at the door instead of getting up. Speakers are essential so seniors are able to easily communicate with Housemate. Finally, automatic locks make life easier for seniors as they can simply tell housemate to open the door for them.
There are two sides of the app available, one catered towards seniors and one for caregivers. However, the phone app is not required as you are also able to enjoy with your speaker.
