Nortek Security & Control Launches Health & Wellness Cloud Platform for Proactive Care Management

Extending on the success of the Numera Libris mobile personal safety and emergency response solution, Nortek Security & Control delivers new EverThere Health & Wellness service allowing care teams to proactively track, interact and engage with seniors and those living with chronic conditions.

Carlsbad, CA - October 27, 2015 - Nortek Security & Control LLC, a Nortek, Inc. company (Nasdaq: NTK), and a leader in health and wellness technology and connected home solutions, announces Numera® EverThere®, a health and safety solution for healthy aging, which connects seniors with their loved ones through real-time monitoring and timely notifications. Working in conjunction with the Numera Libris® device, EverThere facilitates a proactive, team-based approach to caring for elders and ill or disabled family members. EverThere gives caregivers visibility into an individual's health and wellness, including their daily activities, their movement, and their location— all directly connected through this cloud service.


Today, health management and safety products are largely reactive - you fall and are unable to get up, you push a button. Numera EverThere changes this paradigm by integrating personal safety and emergency response with a proactive cloud-monitoring service so seniors and their families have the tools to track and share important health and activity information, allowing for proactive engagement and intervention.

EverThere is a service and an open cloud platform that works with the Numera Libris, a 3G connected, GPS-enabled two-way voice communication device, which can issue instant, customized notifications to caregivers and loved ones. For instance, members of the care team can choose to be notified by email or text if a fall occurs, no motion has been detected for a predetermined amount of time, an emergency is reported, or if other events occur. The single button pendant connects directly to emergency services so a user is never alone or helpless.

"In focusing on helping seniors live healthier longer, we believe it's important to include family members, neighbors and close personal friends for encouragement, support, and to a degree, accountability for adhering to their treatment plans. Numera EverThere's analytics engine provides timely insight into a senior's overall health and wellness, and proactive notifications of important health and safety events," said Tim Smokoff, group vice president health & wellness, Nortek Security & Control.

The EverThere cloud service links personal security with Nortek's market-leading home security and control systems and brings together active plus passive monitoring, both home and away.

"Over time, EverThere's Health & Wellness service will allow our dealers, service providers and partners in the home/connected business market to build upon EverThere's open platform, allowing them to further differentiate their offerings," said Rob Halligan, group vice president of marketing for Nortek Security & Control.
