Relying on AAL for a better life

Systems provide assistance to ageing population aspiring to stay longer independent in their own homes

Keeping individuals in need of certain levels of assistance active and living at home as independently and as long as possible is emerging as a major issue in many countries. This drives a significant growth in many alarm, access and remote alert systems. Standardization work from a number of IEC Technical Committees (TCs) and their Subcommittees (SCs) makes possible the development and widespread introduction of such systems.

Alarm systems useful for AAL too

Alarm transmission systems are used for many applications, including Active Assisted Living

Premises equipped with alarm and access control systems are often essential for people using facilities suited for Active Assisted Living (AAL). Some of these premises must be supervised and as such require special alarm systems. A series of International Standards addressing requirements for these systems is being developed. Two Standards in the series have been published recently.
