City technicians install cameras in the bedrooms of participating seniors. Each participant agrees to a monitoring schedule with their caregiver. Cameras used in this program cannot record video or save photos, thus protecting resident privacy. A central monitoring agent reviews live feeds to determine if participants are in bed, have fallen, or experience health issues. Home care personnel are deployed on-demand rather than conducting nighttime checks.
The remote monitoring program accepted 50 applicants in its first cohort. Malmö hopes to extend the program to all qualifying residents in the future.
