AUSTIN, Texas—AvantGuard Monitoring Centers announced its collaboration with Clairvoyant Networks, LLC, a provider of remote monitoring technology for family and professional caregivers, to launch a hybrid solution that enables both family caregivers and professional monitoring companies to remotely monitor and connect with loved ones at the same time. 

This new solution combines the proven Theora Care remote monitoring with the AvantGuard Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) call center technology. The Clairvoyant Theora Connect wristwatch-style wearable, built on a non-proprietary Android-based platform, was a key driver in the integration of AvantGuard’s call center support. 

Theora Connect, coupled with the Theora Link smartphone app offers an additional level of emergency coverage with a new, direct link to an AvantGuard call center while also providing general activity and connectivity between the family and the care recipient.
“We are excited to see this wearable available to help protect and provide peace-of-mind to subscribers and caregivers,” Justin Baily, president, AvantGuard Monitoring Centers, said in the announcement. “With this new offering, caregivers have the added security of a professional monitoring company behind them.” 

The Theora Connect wearable with Theora Link smartphone app and AvantGuard Monitoring Centers emergency link will be available January 2020. 

“Family caregivers can play a critical role in maximizing their loved one’s independence, reducing ER visits and hospital readmissions, but they need some tools,” Stephen Popovich, CEO of Clairvoyant Networks said. “This collaboration bring the best of both worlds together with a direct link to the care recipient via the Theora Link smartphone app for remote activity and wandering monitoring for family caregivers, plus the top-performing AvantGuard first-responder link on the wearable, in case of an emergency.”
