With Canada’s large aging population, developing a strategy for maintaining independence is an important topic of conversation for families. Whether you or a family member is considering options for staying in a current residence, part of the conversation should be what technology could be used to help ensure safety while aging at home.

24/7 Safety at Home

What makes Alarm.com Wellness different than other aging at home security systems is that it’s more than just an emergency button – it’s a complete 24/7 safety net. Alarm.com Wellness offers a secure and cost-effective option for independent living with safety, security, and comfort.

Activity Patterns

Understand your family member’s activity pattern and get an alert if it’s out of the ordinary.


Make sure your loved one is getting up and about.


Be alerted if your loved one is wandering or leaving the house at odd hours.

Security & Automation

Simplify daily routines with automated temperature, light and security settings.

Integrates Pendants

Wellness can also be paired with Personal Emergency Response (PERS) pendants.

Stay Safe

Alarm.com Wellness is coupled with the leading home security solution from Alarm.com. Get additional peace of mind with 24/7 emergency response for intrusion, fire and medical emergencies, and have a consistent awareness of what’s going on at home.

Peace of mind with monitoring & alerts

Family members and caregivers can monitor their loved one’s activity, such as how much time is spent in bed, in a favorite chair or out of the house. And, with intelligent sensors to track and learn the home’s activities of daily living, Wellness can identify anomalies that may signify a problem.

More comprehensive than traditional Personal Emergency Response (PERS) wearable pendants, Alarm.com Wellness is a safety net that provides a complete view of a loved one’s well-being and delivers automatic, real-time alerts. Unlike a PERS button, Alarm.com Wellness does not rely on the individual to take an action or remember to keep the button with them. With additional information like inactivity alerts or unusual activity patterns, your PERS system can be enhanced to provide a more comprehensive solution.

Enhance independence & comfort with automation

Wellness can also simplify routine tasks, with seamless automation across the home’s critical systems. Easy to use rules and schedules allow you to automate lights, thermostats, locks and security – so your loved one doesn’t have to  member to turn lights on or off, or lock the door every night. Caregivers can even remotely check on thermostat settings and adjust the temperature, if needed, through a mobile app.

When to consider Wellness

  • Your family members want to stay home as they age, but want the security of knowing someone is watching out for them.

  • You worry that something has happened when your aging family member doesn’t stay in touch.

  • A family member has had a recent illness that requires some extra care, but can’t afford expensive assisted living.

  • You want a safety net for active and healthy aging family members.
