PRIA™ by BLACK+DECKER™
The PRIA™ by BLACK+DECKER™ Home Care Companion is an automated medication management and home health assistant that you control with your voice. Through smartphone app integration, PRIA allows a caregiver to monitor an individual's medication and healthcare schedule without interrupting their independent lifestyle. PRIA proactively facilitates in-home healthcare management by scheduling up to 28 medication doses, providing reminder alerts, dispensing proper medication at the proper times, and providing the user with fast access to family or caregivers with a simple voice command and built-in camera. PRIA is the ultimate home healthcare tracking and management tool for independent individuals and their caregivers.
The OMNI WiFi mesh network uses unique radio frequency (RF) sensing technology that can "see" and interpret WiFi signals. In addition to providing a best-in-class WiFi network, OMNI features a motion detection system that alerts users to motion in and around their home or business without the privacy risks, set-up hassles or high costs that accompany current systems. In addition to motion detection, OMNI can be personalized for multi-device cyber security, device quarantine and privacy mode. Scheduled availability is summer of 2019, with additional features rolling out in Q3/Q4 2019.
