Walabot HOME can be used by anyone. It is, however, particularly useful to people who might be prone to falling, due to illness or advanced age, especially those living alone.
Walabot Home uses smart motion sensing technology (based on radio wave signals rather than cameras) to monitor the room continuously in case of a fall. Once installed on the wall, it can automatically detect if someone has fallen by analyzing the entire room.
If a fall is detected, the device will give you time (up to two minutes) to stand back up, if you are able. If during this time you do not cancel the alarm, Walabot HOME will automatically call your emergency contacts, enabling two-way voice communication through the speakers in the device – so you can get the help you need.
The adhesive strips included with your Walabot HOME device will work on any surface in the bathroom. However, it is not recommended to use them on wallpaper, as they might fall off or damage the wallpaper.
For optimal performance, it is important to clean the wall’s surface with rubbing alcohol and a soft cloth and let the wall dry before adhering the strips.
Walabot HOME can work in any room within an area of 12×16 feet. It is most commonly placed in bathrooms. With so many falls happening in the bathroom-often with more serious injuries and potentially fatal results-it is the most dangerous room in the house and where you need protection the most.
Walabot HOME needs to be mounted and installed in the room you intend to monitor. The device should be placed at a height of 5 feet (1.5 meters) from the ground, using the 4 adhesive strips provided in the box.
The device needs to be plugged into an electrical outlet and in clear view of the room (not behind anything). When installing in a bathroom, it should not be installed inside the bath or over the bathtub.
After the Walabot HOME is mounted and plugged into an electrical outlet, the prompts on the device’s touchscreen will ask you to connect your device to WiFi, pair the device with your emergency contact’s mobile phone, set the perimeter of the room, and perform a test run.
