Smart Home for Seniors Pilot Programme
Hong Kong is a well-developed but rapidly aging city and technology is now well-adopted in our daily lives.
The Senior Citizen Home Safety Association (SCHSA) has initiated the Smart Home For Seniors Pilot Programme, which aims to pioneer a platform for home-based elderly care that integrates smart home technology with the vast experience that SCHSA has built up over the past 20 years. Anchored in the high level of support from our sophisticated Call and Care Centre, the Pilot Programme seeks to minimise home accidents for the elderly that involve wet bathrooms or fire from unattended cooking. Ultimately, we want to empower our senior citizens to age more independently, safely and smartly.

Smart Home for Seniors Pilot Programme is initiated and operated by SCHSA, and funded by the HSBC 150th Anniversary Charity Programme as a 3-year programme. The first phase is to establish the Smart Home for Seniors Test Lab at SCHSA headquarters in Homantin for technical testing and showcase the service concept to public. Workshops and health talks focus on needs of elderly will also be arranged in the comprehensive programme plan.

In addition, during the 3-year pilot programme, SCHSA will invite a total of 1,000 eligible elderly as pilot users to participate the free trial in their home by phase. Users' feedback and relevant data will be collected for analysis of the effectiveness of the programme and for service improvement. More details about the pilot user recruitment and selection criteria will be announced later through website and online channels.
