“The simple device giving isolated older Australians peace of mind”

Getting older doesn’t have to mean giving up your independence at home

Umps supports independence at home by monitoring usual daily activity with discreet smart plugs placed on everyday home appliances. When changes in routine mean someone could be at risk, we make sure people know so they can provide the right support.

Who is the Umps Smart Home for?

For people who have decided to live at home with independence for as long as possible.

Staying independent at home as you get older can be your reality – but it does require planning. With Umps in place, you’re making a statement. I’m going to do everything I can to stay in my home for as long as possible. From the day you plug Umps in you’ll have a system that looks out for you without asking you to change the way you live your life.

For inspiring family members caring for a relative

Family can be the difference between aging at home or going into aged care. But it’s not easy. People’s needs can become complex, and balancing these with everyday life is stressful.

We make things easier by providing you with insight on meaningful changes at home, and alerts if something has gone wrong. This means you’re always informed, and can rest-easy even when you aren’t there in person.

For care providers with a focus on high-quality care

We arm leading care providers with information so they can deliver the best possible care. This means intuitive dashboards, reports and applications that enable them to deliver a smarter type of care for a better way of living.

The Umps Difference

“I chose to use Umps for my 90-year-old father, who also suffers from Parkinson’s disease and lives alone. It addressed a gap in current services like personal alarms. It bubbles along in the background without impacting on someone”.

Mariette, Epping

“The service that Umps has provided Mum and our family has been invaluable! Mum has several electrical appliances, like the kettle, TV and bedside lamp, which she regularly uses. If she does not use them at her usual time of day, I receive a text from Umps. Mum is happy to know that she has the support of the Umps team!”

Rhonda, Altona, Victoria

“What is so terrific about Umps is that it doesn’t require any participation from its user. She doesn’t have to wear any gadget, make any phone calls or press any sort of alarm button”

Louise, Colac, Victoria

“It’s very reassuring to know that Umps will let someone know if I need help. I am 81 years old and live on my own, and sometimes a couple days will lapse before I have a visitor or a phone call. It’s nice to know that if I need help I will get it.  I tell all my friends about it. Umps has put my mind at ease.”

Shirley, Colac, Victoria
