Lifestyle Monitoring Gateway (LMGW) is a telehealth data collection system monitoring older people’s well-being in their own homes. Multiple super-speed RF sensors are linked to LMGW and installed throughout the house to collect data about day-to-day behavior. The gathered data are sent to a designated server for storage and analysis. LMGW helps maintain older adults’ quality of life in their homes and enables them to live at home as long as possible.
The LMGW Series offers three models with different networking options:
LMGW-8F1: IP and GSM/GPRS
LMGW’s 160 zones can integrate 160 sensors to collect and transmit data to a designated server. Sensors are installed throughout the house to monitor motions, device use, the opening/closing of doors, cabinets or a fridge, bed and chair occupancy, bath usage, periods of inactivity, carbon monoxide, smoke, etc.
Super-speed RF communications are implemented to enhance network performance for the smooth transference of large amounts of data. The gateway also establishes Wi-Fi connections via an inserted Wi-Fi USB dongle.
LMGW employs the XMPP protocol via TCP/IP networks for real-time communication with a designated server, which enables telecare personnel to monitor real-time information and view reports online.
LMGW offers Web or SMS programming for easy configuration and maintenance. It has remote firmware update (RFU) capability to acquire the latest features.
