Archangel links with global innovator Semtech to deliver ingenious ambient sensing solution

Glasgow-based technology firm Archangel has linked up with global innovator Semtech to deliver an ingenious ambient sensing solution to address significant challenges facing health, care and housing providers and support the growing demand for more independent living and healthier homes.

With traditional methods of monitoring, such as bracelets or lanyards, frequently rejected by people as symbolic of frailties and vulnerabilities, this strategic partnership between Semtech and Archangel delivers an unobtrusive yet vigilant approach by utilising a range of smart sensors to non-invasively build a picture of a person’s daily routines and living environment and provide proactive alerts on potential risks to the property and the individuals health and wellbeing.

Semtech’s smart sensors, working in conjunction with Archangel’s cloud-based platform, combine to deliver a data-rich, ambient assisted living platform. This powerful resource is aimed at helping local authorities, health, and housing providers to keep people living safer, longer and ultimately happier lives in their own homes.

Richard Lansdowne, Semtech’s Senior Director of Cloud Services, commented: “Our AirVantage® smart sensing technologies complement Archangel’s holistic platform and work together to deliver a highly resilient platform that empowers service providers with over 1700 sensors to help monitor the property environment, energy use, telehealth, wellness, activities and more. Ultimately it enables individuals to share in managing their property and health concerns.”

Tom Morton, CEO of Archangel Ltd, added: “This strategic partnership with Semtech delivers a fully integrated lifeline that can alert the elderly end-user and interested parties, including health and care professionals, and flag up potential issues before they become emergencies.

“I am delighted with Semtech’s Smart Sensing solution and it is precisely what Archangel needs as our CARE partners spearhead the UK challenge to switch in excess of 1.8 million individuals from analogue reactive pendant solutions to digital ambient assisted living systems.

“Archangel collaborates with scalable, reliable global partners to implement our vision of connecting silo systems, delivering a better way of service provision using proactive and preventative models within an integrated health, care and housing system.”

Founded in 1960 in California, Semtech now operates across almost 40 nations around the world manufacturing a range of smart sensing solutions as well as a number of other technical innovations suited to a wide range of applications.

Archangel is in the vanguard of the burgeoning UK and Scottish health and care technology sector offering ‘a better way’ with a unique, collaborative and holistic ambient assisted living system approach that integrates digital and analogue technologies into one cloud-based data aggregation platform. Connect, assess, respond and evolve are the four pillars of Archangel’s CARE offering.
