Vayyar Imaging announced the availability of its 3D sensor technology for the smart home market. The patented 3D sensors use RF to "see" through barriers to detect, identify and track multiple individuals' motion, falls and vital signs.

"Until today, the technology currently available within the smart home ecosystem has been limited in supporting advanced features. It has either violated individuals' privacy through the use of cameras, required multiple installations in every room, and required people to wear special tracking bracelets," said Raviv Melamed, CEO and co-founder, Vayyar Imaging. "Our 3D sensors do not need cameras to gather and share data or multiple networks set up throughout the house. They open up incredible opportunities for cable companies, fire and security companies, healthcare, and other service providers to offer premium, value-added services to their customers at low cost and with minimal implementation requirements."

The 3D sensors are designed to cover large areas to reduce the need for multiple sensors throughout a home and minimize the cost of installation. Use cases include:

  • Healthcare monitoring of the elderly, family or children - To monitor breathing and vital signs of multiple individuals in a home, and alert a care provider if a fall occurs or breathing stops.
  • Security and safety in case of fire or intruder alert - To track the real-time movement of individuals inside a home and locate people in a structural fire or should home security be breached.
  • Cable content and entertainment delivery - To enable cable companies to offer personalized and targeted content and entertainment delivery based on an individual's height, preference, and location in the home.
  • Decrease bandwidth drain - To identify if someone is asleep in a room with the TV on and reduce the broadcast to from UltraHD or HD to SD to save network bandwidth.
