The Family Pack
Smart Home Center
This makes your home intelligent. Simply plug it in to power and plug in a wired internet connection. The free app will walk you through the whole process.
Personal Assist Button
Push it at any time to alert the people in your Trusted Circle and let them know that assistance is needed. Or change its behavior to record access to medication.
Front Door and Back Door Entry Sensors
They attach to a home’s high-traffic doors in just minutes so you can know when someone comes and goes. Install extras on medicine cabinets, refrigerators, and microwaves.
Kitchen, Hallway, and Living Room Motion Sensors
They alert for potential falls, sleep problems, and more. We recommend one motion sensor every 500 square feet of living space, so the base pack covers about 1,500 square feet.
It includes everything you need to address concerns of falls, wellness and loneliness in a new collaborative way. Installation is fast and simple.
These features work for free, right out-of-the-box.

People Power Family History.
In 2013, People Power launched a new market with the popular app "Presence", transforming old smartphones into free security cameras. To our surprise, many people used the app to keep watch over aging loved ones, and shared with us both heartwarming and heartbreaking stories. While we learned that cameras are not the most welcome product in the private homes of seniors, we did learn what really matters. Presence has been featured on every major news outlet, including both national and international media.
Shocking facts about seniors and emergency devices.
6 More Years.
People with an emergency alert system can continue living in their own homes outside of a retirement home an additional six years longer than those without one. At $20,000 per year on the low-end, that's $120,000 you shouldn't lose!
One in four Americans over the age of 65 will fall each year, and less than half of them will tell anyone that it happened.
Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall. Every 19 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall.
One in five falls will cause a severe head injury or broken bone.
Deaths from falls among adults age 65 and older have increased dramatically, from 18,000 to 30,000 per year according to the AARP. Deaths from unintentional injuries are the seventh leading cause of death among older adults, according to the AARP. Falls account for the most significant percentage of those deaths, according to the AARP.
The only in-home caregiving technology
backed by science.
With a generous $4.5m NIA-funded grant led by People Power with research by UC Berkeley, People Power Family is demonstrating reductions in anxiety and depression that would normally only be found in the pharmaceutical industry. At the conclusion of this research, People Power Family will be the only scientifically validated in-home care solution in the world. This translates to meaningful years added to the lives of seniors and their caregivers.
Families receiving a full dose of People Power Family (in orange) observed statistically significant reductions in anxiety and depression while increasing wellbeing, versus control participants (in blue).
What people are saying.
"Our collaborative effort to design and evaluate assistive technology has great promise for helping caregivers provide high quality care for individuals with dementia. As the population ages worldwide and the number of families dealing with dementia caregiving increases, there is a growing need for innovative solutions that promote the health and well-being of people with dementia and their caregivers."
