SAN JOSE, Calif. (September 14, 2021)—Bay Alarm Medical, a medical alert system, and Kami Vision, the provider of an edge-based vision artificial intelligence (AI) platform, announced an agreement to integrate Bay Alarm Medical’s safety offering with Kami Vision’s artificial intelligence (AI) platform. Together the companies will bring advanced AI technology and video verification to seniors in the United States to provide greater peace of mind to seniors and caregivers, reduce false alerts, improve emergency response times and ultimately enable seniors to safely age in place.
With 70 million aging baby boomers in need of safe, sustainable housing and services and many unwilling to move, Kami Vision and Bay Alarm Medical are offering a solution that keeps seniors in their homes while taking the burden off caregivers. Under the agreement, Kami will supply AI-enabled video cameras with video verification technology to Bay Alarm Medical’s nationwide customers.
“The benefits of aging in place are endless—it improves seniors’ quality of life, reduces risk of exposure to viruses and bacteria, increases social connection thereby boosting emotional health and potentially reduces costs for care takers,” said Andy Ginjupalli, president, Bay Alarm Medical. “By offering our customers a technology like Kami Vision’s that further enables aging in place, we can enhance our promise to protect family, health and independence with the best senior life-saving alert systems in the nation.”
“We are developing easy-to-deploy AI technology to help solve major challenges of our time, including the emergency health care response challenge that Bay Alarm Medical is tackling,” said Yamin Durrani, chief executive officer, Kami Vision. “We seek partners who share similar goals and values. We align well with Bay Alarm Medical as we focus on ways to deliver affordable safety and greater peace of mind to customers and their loved ones.”
