Changing Elder Care One Sensor at a Time

In this week’s Fish Fry, we investigate an innovative new solution called the Sensara Senior Lifestyle System from GreenPeak Technologies.

Cees Links (CEO – GreenPeak Technologies) joins Fish Fry to explain how this new system works and why in this case, the idea of Big Brother might not be that bad. Spoiler alert: It doesn’t use a camera!
