How it works.
TruSense integrates best-in-class monitoring devices with a user-friendly dashboard to provide a complete vision of safety and health for common senior living issues.
TruSense can alert you if a probable fall occurs. An alert is triggered when TruSense detects that your loved one has not moved from high-risk fall areas (such as a stairwell or restroom) in an unusually long time. And with the Amazon Echo Dot, voice commands can also be used to call out for help.
Optional GPS Tracking assures that your loved one is traveling safely while on the road or even just walking outside the home. Receive alerts when Mom heads to the grocery or the doctor’s office, and use the app to track her trip to ensure she arrives safely.
At Home / Away From Home
Motion sensors work in combination with Contact sensors affixed to exterior doors to detect when your loved one has left or returned home. No more wondering or worrying why Mom isn’t picking up the phone when you can see that she’s left the house.

3. Customize Notifications
Set up your custom alerts to notify you when your loved one has left the home or been in the bathroom too long, if the temperature has exceeded a set threshold, or any number of other defined situations. Alerts can be sent via a text message, email, and phone call.
We’ve also integrated the Amazon Echo Dot so you can simply ask Alexa how your loved one is doing–get a quick pulse on their activity level, location or see if they’ve left the home.

What Our Customers are Saying
I’m so happy I found TruSense! It was the perfect fit for what I was looking for to help monitor my Dad. From the easy installation process to the user-friendly app, it has given me peace of mind that my Dad is ok.
With TruSense, I just use my Amazon Echo Dot to ask how my Dad is doing and I get an instant answer like, ‘he left the home an hour ago.’ TruSense is such a relief for me.
TruSense is just what we were looking for! We want Dad to remain independent for as long as possible, but we also need to be able to check on him even when he sometimes doesn’t hear the phone. It’s incredibly reassuring to be able to glance at my phone periodically through the day to see whether he’s going about his day as usual!
