How the Umps Smart Home Works
Umps smart plugs detect when home appliances are used
Each Umps Smart Home comes with 5 Smart Plugs. These Smart Plugs fit between any appliance and the wall to measure when those appliances are used. We recommend putting these on things like the kettle, TV, refrigerator, bedside lamp and microwave.
Umps learns a person’s unique daily routine
We know that everyone is different, so for the first 7 days Umps gets to know the user in Learning Mode. During Learning Mode, the Umps is establishing a user’s individual and unique daily habits which means that alerts are more accurate with fewer false alarms.
Umps detects any unusual activity
After Learning Mode has completed, Umps will raise an alert if a change in routine could indicate the presence of a health issue, for example:
No appliances have been used when they normally would have been (like first thing in the morning!)
- A person has used the bedside lamp 7 times overnight, indicating they haven’t slept well
- A person’s appetite has decreased, and they’ve been opening the refrigerator far less than normal over the previous 7 days.
Insights by SMS or through the Umps App
When Umps generates an insight or alert, it informs Nominated Contacts by SMS or through the Umps App. We can even arrange to check-in with the user first.
