3rings is a cloud-based care system that helps you check in periodically on your elderly loved ones. The system works using a simpleelectric plug gadget that monitors the behaviour of your family and lets you know if anything is off. 3rings helps to reduce worrying by giving daily reassurance via email and text to let you know your loved ones are okay.
To use 3rings, simply plug a kettle, television or any other frequently used appliance into the outlet. Then set up flexible rules for when you want a check up on your loved one. Rules such as “I expect Mum to make a cup of tea between 9 and 11 each morning.” will send you an alert if the expected action doesn’t happen.
The 3rings Plug uses an inbuilt chip mobile phone to send out information. Hence, it doesn’t need internet access to work.
