Using Gentroo is easy! Simply turn on the device, provide it to the person being monitored, and you're up and running. The app will notify you when something happens (for example, your loved one wanders away from their home). You can invite more monitors at any time, and adjust settings from within the app.
*Limited spots available.
Gentroo is a reliable, affordable and flexible way to monitor your loved ones.
In addition to providing the same list of features as a call center service (Panic button, Falls Detection, Wandering), Gentroo offers a host of benefits including:
Gentroo sends event notifications (e.g. a Fall, or a Panic button press) to you and the other monitors in your network, and includes a number of supporting features to ensure the system fits your life and your needs.
No; Gentroo includes tools to help you manage alerts and notifications. The goal is for people to be able to find the right balance between staying informed, and avoiding "alert fatigue", and to be able to turn notifications up and down (or off and on) as needed.
Some notification management features include:
Alert Notifications are delivered to Monitors' phones, and can be addressed as appropriate, whether immediately in the case of emergencies, or at a more convenient time for less urgent issues.
Gentroo can be easily customized to make sure you have the right level of network montoring, up to around-the-clock coverage if needed. For example, you can quickly add and remove 'temporary' Monitors, e.g. for an evening. You can also set landline numbers for added security.
You can turn notifications off at night, or direct them to another Monitor in the network. This is again about each person striking the balance that best suits their needs and situation. Some people want to receive all notifications, and some do not. Gentroo allows you to adjust these settings as you go, until you find the mix that fits. You can even split the night up, by setting who sees what notifications by time.
The Gentroo Community pilot will run from February 14, 2022 to May 14, 2022.
Yes, the pilot will be free for participants, including use of a monitoring device for the pilot period.
Just monitor someone who needs it, using the system, and provide regular updates on your experience via an online survey.
Three months of free monitoring for your family, and the satisfaction of helping a Sault Ste. Marie company launch a product to help people, as well as our thank you! And, the option to keep the monitoring device after the pilot with a subscription.
After 5 years of development and testing, we are taking the first steps to commercialization with our Community Beta Pilot in early 2022. We plan to offer Gentroo commercially in the second half of 2022.
