Centrica Hive, has today announced that it has been named a CES 2019 Innovation Awards Honoree for Hive Link, a new groundbreaking innovation for the connected care market.

Debuting at CES 2019, Hive Link is a new smart home service designed to allow caregivers to check their loved one is getting on with their day as usual, while giving a loved one reassurance someone is there if needed.

Developed in partnership with Carers UK, Hive Link is powered by an ever-learning Hive designed algorithm, continually interpreting data captured by Hive smart home devices carefully placed around the home, learning a loved one’s routine. This information is shown through an intuitive, easy to use activity log within the Hive app, allowing caregivers to check in regularly. If the loved one deviates from a usual routine in the morning or at night, or leaves a front door open, the caregiver is quickly sent a notification, allowing for an immediate and appropriate response, such as a phone call or drop in for a visit.

 

As an added benefit, Hive Link features a sharing Circle that allows other family members and friends to share the caring responsibilities and help look out for a loved one. By keeping people better informed, Hive Link can give peace of mind, meaning caregivers and loved ones can be free to enjoy conversations that matter most, being less about checking up—and more about having a chat.
Claire Miles, Centrica Hive Managing Director, says: “Empowering caregivers is a real passion for us at Centrica Hive and we firmly believe smart home technology will provide extra reassurance for families and their loved ones. Our research with Carers UK clearly shows elderly people want to live in their home and remain independent, but have someone on hand to help if needed. Hive Link was created with this insight at its heart. Designed to be invisible within the home, but always there to give invaluable peace of mind and let everyone enjoy their lives.”

 

The coveted award celebrates the best in product design and engineering for new consumer technology products. An esteemed panel of judges, including designers, engineers and members of the tech media, reviews submissions based on design, functionality, consumer appeal, engineering and how the products compare with competition.
