CloseBy Network is offering a new Card Access Smart Pressure Sensor to replace the Bed and Chair Sensor component to its remote monitoring for caregiving solution.

According to the company, the new sensor provides better performance through increased sensitivity, returning fewer false positives and making event notification more accurate and useful for caregivers.

The sensor works by measuring a change in applied pressure when a chair, a bed, or a sofa is occupied. Proprietary “learning” technology allows caregivers to fine-tune the response of the sensor to suit a wide range of furniture and occupants -- with a push of a button.

“With the Smart Pressure Sensor, caregivers can have a powerful tool that allows them to monitor daily activity unobtrusively, a valuable resource when a family is helping loved ones remain in their home,” said Kent Hansen, Card Access CEO. “This sensor makes customizing the CloseBy Network that much more valuable and useful to caregivers.”

The Smart Pressure Sensor must be used in conjunction with a Card Access Wireless Contact Sensor (WCS10A), which can be powered with batteries or via 9-24V AC/DC external power. Two sensors are now shipping with the CloseBy Network Basic Package.
