Dagelijks Leven runs small-scale residential care centers throughout the Netherlands. People with dementia, Alzheimer’s, or other forms of memory loss can live there in a cozy, familiar environment, close to family and friends.
Peplink partner, Negotica, offered the care centers an affordable and automated solution to reduce fixed costs. Negotica is a Dutch system integrator and developer of smart building, energy and healthcare solutions. Their work integrates products from the domotics (building automation), building, and care markets.
Deliver a reliable connection for their building automation equipment as well as deliver Internet access for the system, employees, and residents. It was vital that the automation functionality and Internet access did not interfere with each other.
In an average care center, 6 to 7 AP One Enterprise devices were placed for complete coverage. Its simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi provided two independent networks (5GHz and 2.4GHz) that worked together, ensuring that all the devices can connect without clashing. This gave employees a stable connection for their alerts, and gave residents reliable Internet connectivity. For automation, sensors have been placed to measure and map out the behavior of the residents. This data will be sent over to a server where it all comes together on Negotica’s software. Alerts will be visible on the dashboard and employees will receive the alerts on their smartphones.
With the AP One Enterprise, Negotica managed to reduce the fixed costs of Dagelijks Leven by providing a complete automated system. This means they needed less employees in each small-scale residential care center.
