- Solve the management problems of nursing homes
- Build an excellent corporate image
- Create a comfortable environment for the elderly
There are hundreds of nursing homes in Hong Kong that provide continuous care services for the elderly and help their families reduce the burden of support. But at the same time, some private nursing homes have harsh environments, which impact the health of the elderly.
Air does not circulate
Even though the Regulation on Homes for the Elderly regulates that every nursing home must maintain air circulation, many residents have pointed out that the ventilation system in the house is uneven and the environment is muggy, which is easy to breed and spread bacteria.
Extreme room temperature
The elderly belong to the high-risk group of heatstroke, and the room temperature should be maintained between 21 to 26 degrees Celsius. Otherwise, it will easily lead to heatstroke and induce other diseases. However, in the past, many media have visited many nursing homes and found that the room temperature is too high, even as high as 33 degrees, similar to the outdoor temperature.
As long as the environment optimization management system of the nursing home is adopted in the nursing home, the environmental quality of the nursing home can be guaranteed. The environmental optimization management system of nursing homes is a combination of LoRaWan and sensor technology, which solves the current problems of nursing homes and ensures the corporate image and customers to a certain extent.
LoRaWan is a wireless communication technology designed to create low-power wide-area networks (LPWAN) required for machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The information can be sent to any base station connected to the cloud platform at low cost, low power consumption, safety, and long-distance.
There are four other functions in the back-end:
- Multi-identity login interface: hierarchical access
- Data visualization chart: Data will be displayed in various chart, such as column chart, bar chart, line chart, pie chart.
- Instant data transmission: transfer messages in real-time via LoRaWan, Json, MQTT communication protocols
- Complete data export
Environmental optimization management system for nursing homes
It is only necessary to install wireless temperature, humidity and PM 2.5 dust sensors in the nursing home. Once the device detects an abnormal situation, the temperature adjustment system, ventilation system, moisture absorption system and ventilation system in the nursing home will respond accordingly.
The system needs to be equipped with different devices in the nursing home, including:
Temperature control system
When the temperature exceeds the preset level, the temperature control system (air conditioner, fan) will automatically adjust the temperature to increase/decrease the indoor temperature beyond the preset level.
Ventilation & moisture absorption system
When the humidity exceeds the preset level, the ventilation system and moisture absorption system will automatically start to adjust the moisture in the hospital.
When the PM2.5 dust value exceeds the preset level, the ventilation system will automatically start to remove the impurity air in the nursing home and draw in fresh air to maintain the air quality in the nursing home.
- At the same time that the system is automatically started, the data will be transmitted to LoRaWan immediately
- LoRaWan will transmit the data to the cloud backend
- Administrators can know the real-time situation of the nursing home through the management system or app
- Data can be used for future reference
Effective management of nursing homes is closely related to the operation of nursing homes, ensuring that even if the environment of the nursing home remains unchanged, it is beneficial to the health of the elderly. In addition, the system effectively saves electricity expenses. We expect customers to pay for the system’s purchase with the saved electricity expenses within one year. Furthermore, the system helps build an excellent corporate image so that customers can use the service with peace of mind.
