Suffolk has a higher population of people over 65 years old than average, anticipated to rise (currently 23.8%, projected to rise to 30.6% by 2043). In-home monitoring of vulnerable people living independently in their own home has been found to be a useful support for daily monitoring and remote alerts to enable early intervention, with well-being benefits in health and confidence of the vulnerable independent person and their family, and related economic and resource management benefits. Suffolk County Council’s Adult Social Care team offers a range of in-home technological monitoring solutions using a dedicated 4G router to provide WiFi connection and data return. With the deployment of the Suffolk and Norfolk Innovation Network, providing a new long range low power communications network (LoRaWAN) across the county, the Smarter Suffolk project team was asked to assess LoRaWAN connected in-home monitoring devices. This report details the trial of selected devices, and provides recommendations and conclusions for their further development and wider use.
