My mothers house already has many items fitted to monitor her activities to ensure she comes to no harm. Now it seems I need similar for my father-in-law, I have made mistakes with my mother, I don't want to repeat these errors. The camera a Motorola used the Hubble web which goes down a tad too often. The idea is good, we can look in the room to see if all is OK, we can hear anything said in the room, see the temperature, and speak to anyone in the room, however the delay between sound send and receive means can't use it for a chat, and the camera is not that wide of an angle so it has motors to move it around, but jumps quite a bit, so one little touch and it moves too far. The alarms are on a remote socket so it auto switches on and off to allow carers to come and go with setting off the alarms, however found the Mihome Energenie sockets limited to three times a day, and we have four sets of carers a day, can use IFTTT to get another, but it had to be on the hour or half hour so ended up being for too long of a period. The alarms were fitted by social services, however not what one would call user friendly, since designed to wake us up, they have to be upstairs, that is also where the reset button is located, however during the day when some one comes to the door, running upstairs to switch off alarm then down again to open door is not really convenient. Hence the remote control socket, to start with I tried using a plug in remote but too often it did not reset pushing the button, and also tried a timer but there were callers in the on time which were not catered for the socket combines both and so worked better. For my father-in-law we have a few problems including setting central heating far too high, and switching off sockets supplying the phone. Daft tricks like cans of coka-cola and eggs in the freezer. Regular visits is really the answer, but at the moment social services will not visit and my wife also has my mother. So looking for ideas, I think first thing is to get internet set up again. But then what to use I am not sure.
