Millions of seniors use the Numera® Libris® 2 mobile personal emergency response system (mPERS) device every day. They rely on this valuable device to detect and report incidents, communicate events to family members, and much more. Our advanced technology works hard to ensure the safety and well-being of each wearer.

However, the Libris 2 mPERS device is more than just a fall detection device. By using the associated online portal, EverThere, that is integrated with every Numera mPERS device, users get access to additional geo-location and care capabilities.

How Does EverThere Provide Added Peace of Mind?

As a cloud-based, API portal, EverThere provides comprehensive and indispensable dashboard information for those managing the health and safety of individuals using the Libris 2. Data is collected through the Libris 2 mPERS fall detection device, which operates as a gateway and wirelessly connects to the browser interface. EverThere also integrates personal safety and emergency response with proactive, socially engaging services. This allows the portal to continuously collect activity data and event notifications from the device. The important EverThere features include:

  • Location of the device
  • GPS waypoints the user has traveled
  • Signal and battery strength
  • Ability to send event notifications to care team through e-mail or SMS
  • Find Me Now feature

“Find Me Now” Feature Delivers an Extra Level of Security 

The EverThere portal Find Me Now feature allows the device to be found from within the portal, providing an extra level sense of security to all parties involved. Here’s how it works:

  • A family member or caregiver with access to the EverThere portal logs in to the portal
  • Using the green button within the portal connects the authorized user to the Find Me Now functions
  • Once the Find Me Now button is activated, this then prompts the Libris® 2 mPERS to turn on and play a chime so it can be located

A great example of this feature in action is demonstrated by a woman using the Libris 2 who was walking her dog. The woman ran into her friend while she was out. They sat at the dog park for a while and soon, two hours had passed. The woman’s husband grew concerned and headed to the dog park. He was easily able to use the Find Me Now feature to locate his wife via the chime.

The additional peace of mind of knowing your loved ones are safe is the priceless value delivered with the Numera Libris 2 mPERS pendant and the many special features of the EverThere portal.

Active seniors make up a large portion of the senior population. According to the AARP, there will be more people over the age of 65 by 2035 in the U.S. than under 18. But what constitutes an active senior? The definition of an “active” older adult has changed over the past few decades. Where it used to be about activities which required little to no physical activity, seniors are now re-learning hobbies and participating in more athletic events whether they’re mild or more vigorous. As more seniors become active for longer periods of time, they are able to stay healthier, extend their lifespan and increase their overall wellbeing.

Added Peace of Mind

Another key factor in boosting active senior morale is the Numera® Libris® 2 mobile personal emergency response system (mPERS) device. The key word here is “mobile” because the advanced technology within the Libris 2 helps keep track of the person’s whereabouts. Wearing the pendant allows active seniors to have peace of mind – in the case of an event, they can press the call button and instantly be connected to a dispatcher. Take a look at the many ways our Libris 2 mPERS system helps active seniors:

  1. Advanced Fall Detection – The Libris 2 mPERS utilizes cutting-edge motion detection technology based on artificial intelligence (AI) with a 90% accuracy rate. Plus, its advanced technology is able to accurately classify types of falls enabling it to significantly reduce false positives.
  1. Rapid Response Times – Statistics show that 88% of people survive falls if they receive help within the first 72 hours. If an active senior is out and experiences a fall, they can rely on the Libris 2 device to connect them to first responders quickly. 
  1. Aging in Place – Customers get the added confidence and assurance from the knowledge that they have the best fall detection mPERS capabilities. Having this confidence allows them to live at home longer and enjoy their independence. 
  1. Care Virtually Everywhere – Regardless of location, seniors can trust the dependable 24/7 connectivity available with the Libris 2 mPERS via a mobile monitoring service. They are able to easily connect to help through multiple capabilities including hands-free, two-way calling and a strong transmission strength, which works through thick walls or wooded areas.

There are millions of lone workers around the world who are at risk of being subjected to an injury or violence on the job. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, there are over 694,000 reports of violence in the workplace and nearly 7,500 falls that occur per year. Mobile personal emergency response system (mPERS) devices such as the Libris® 2 mPERS offer peace of mind for lone workers in situations such as these with our advanced fall detection, rapid response rate and EverThere web portal. Let’s take a deeper look at the many ways the Libris 2 device can provide extra support and security for lone workers.

Defining the Lone Worker

First, it’s important to understand who falls under the “lone worker” category. The lone worker is anyone who carries out a work activity away from co-workers and without close or direct supervision. However, lone workers are not always those working in complete isolation. When identifying those in the lone worker category, it is important to consider the various situations one may find themselves in, such as:

  • Social workers, home healthcare providers, and realtors who visit clients in their homes.
  • Construction workers, teachers and students who work in a secluded area, or alternately large, noisy environments who may have trouble calling for help.
  • Retail workers, hospitality workers, and security guards working with the general public are at risk due to the large number of people in these spaces.
  • On-The-Road workers including taxi/Uber/Lyft drivers, business travelers, and delivery drivers run a risk of road and traffic accidents that may lead to aggression.

Advanced Technology and Key Features

The Libris 2 mPERS device provides lone workers with the confidence to know they can call for help at any time. When the panic button is pushed, or a fall is detected, the device’s location and status is provided immediately to a call center dispatch station. The worker will then be connected to a trained response agent who can notify authorities and send help right away to the worker’s exact location. Some key benefits include:

  • A panic button for immediate help
  • Advanced fall detection technology triggers an alert without any manual intervention
  • Automatic location coordinates sent to the call center
  • Two-way voice calling to confirm incident
  • Audible or discrete alerts

Increased Visibility for Employers

The Libris 2 fall detection device provides end-users and their employers with additional reassurance through the use of our cloud-based, API portal EverThere. The portal enables multi-person and secure care coordination with people you can rely on. Employers are able to create check-ins with employees to ensure their safety if they have been at a job site for too long. Through the portal, employers can view the location of the device, GPS waypoints the employee has traveled, device status such as signal and battery strength, and much more! Customization is offered through the EverThere portal as well, such as white labeling. White labeling allows a customer to label the portal with their logo, so the portal is unique for each specific customer.

Added Benefits

The Numera brand from Nortek Security & Control has been producing industry-leading fall detection devices since 2014 with the goal to empower users to be independent and feel safe. We allow the flexibility for customers to choose from a large variety of monitoring service partners and have a large dealer and distributor network.
