Essence and Medical Guardian win IoT award for service that enables senior independent living
Medical Guardian, a provider of Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS), and Essence, a global provider of cloud-based connected living solutions, jointly won the 2017 IoT Evolution Business Impact Award after successfully driving business growth and displaying market leadership with the launch of the Family Guardian.

Family Guardian is an in-home system offering comprehensive activity monitoring of seniors to caregivers from afar, based on Essence’s IoT-based solution, Care@Home Family Home Monitoring system for seniors.

The IoT Evolution Business Impact Award presented by TMC and Crossfire Media recognized a select group of companies and business leaders who have successfully leveraged IoT to solve a business issue, launch a new service, or create revenue opportunities.

The Care@Home Family is part of Essence’s Care@Home multi-service aging-in-place product suite that offers home monitoring experience, allowing independence for seniors and peace of mind for their loved ones. The customizable Care@Home Family allows loved ones to be kept aware of their relatives’ well-being by being alerted of specific daily events.

Essence and Medical Guardian have been partners since 2014. Essence’s advanced senior monitoring technologies track residents and provide automatic alerts in emergency situations, taking the burden of care away from the elderly and affords them a higher level of safety.

“The opportunity within IoT in business continues to transform productivity, and we are delighted to highlight Essence and Medical Guardian’s success in deploying IoT,” said Carl Ford, CEO, Crossfire Media, executive director of content, IoT Evolution. “We congratulate them and recognize that there are more and more opportunities in the enterprise being solved by IoT every day.”
