The HomeSight system makes possible a wide array of connected homecare services by third party application providers, such as remote patient monitoring, video calling for consultations and social interaction, community connections, health education, in-home environmental monitoring and much more. HomeSight includes easy-to-use connected devices that help improve remote care delivery, reduce loneliness and isolation, and support longer independent living.
The HomeSight system leverages the TV in the home to seamlessly connect healthcare and family caregivers with patients and loved ones in real time, without the need for a scheduled appointment or the technological barriers of navigating a mobile device or laptop. The simplified end-user experience improves patient accessibility, engagement and adoption of care services, reducing the need for in-person appointments or visits.
The HomeSight system combines a TV-connected smart camera with edge compute, a comprehensive cloud service for data transfer and device management, environmental sensors, and an LTE connectivity module for homes without broadband access or for use as a back-up connection. Third party connected medical devices may be used with the system for patient monitoring. A set of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) is available for application providers to integrate applications and workflows to deliver innovative, reliable, and secure in-home patient services.
“We believe there is a tremendous opportunity to bring extraordinary value to the healthcare and homecare markets,” stated
Kraydel’s Konnect platform is the first application to leverage the HomeSight system, leading the way in advancing personalized home care services.

An easy-to-use remote control features five buttons that are designed to engage users intuitively. An iOS and Android mobile app for care workers, family caregivers and friends, enables two-way video calls through the TV, as well as photo sharing, video uploads and text messaging. Konnect integrates with third party Bluetooth enabled devices for remote monitoring and reports health measurements and daily living activities in a custom dashboard to help administer health and care services.
“By deploying internet-based technologies via the TV, Konnect addresses issues around technology adoption amongst older adults,” commented Dr.
