Home Instead Senior Care improves security for its elderly with the help of electronic locks

Home Instead Senior Care Franchises in West Florida enter into pilot with Phoniro an ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions Company to test Electronic Locks for security, safety, and peace of mind for their clients.

Home Instead Senior Care franchises in Hillsborough, Pasco, and Hernando County Florida have opted to test digital locking technology from the Swedish company, Phoniro, to improve users’ experience along with enhancing security and safety. Phoniro Lock is installed in over 110,000 doors in different countries and used by over 200 public and private home care organizations. Phoniro is part of ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions which provides trusted security solutions throughout the US and world for senior care, hotel, and cruise industry. ASSA ABLOY has been featured in Forbes Magazine for several years as the” World’s most innovative companies.”

With the Phoniro Lock, clients no longer have to risk their security by leaving a key out or hidden under the doormat. With the electronic lock, the caregiver will digitally enter the home via an app installed on their smartphone. The app is protected by the highest level of security, through an IT platform known as Phoniro Care.

The lock is not visible from the outside, and clients and their relatives can still use the physical key. It is aesthetically pleasing and easy to install and remove without any damage on the door or lock. The electronic lock will not interfere with any other security solutions the client may have.

Client Safety is a priority at Home Instead Senior Care, and this new technology will allow us to give reassurance to both our seniors and their family members who may live 1,000 miles away that the door isn’t left unlocked and that the “key under the mat” falls into the wrong hands,” said John Murphy, Owner at Home Instead Senior Care of Pasco County, Florida.

In addition to greater security, the solution also generates a time stamp when the caregiver enters and exits the home. This feature records when and for how long the caregiver was on the premises.

“We are pleased to bring the Phoniro Integrated Technology Platform to the United States Home Care Market. This platform offers much more than enhanced safety and security to our seniors; it also provides an opportunity for care collaboration within healthcare and better care outcomes,” said Stephenie Haldane, xxx at Phoniro.

Home Instead Senior Care is planning to test the solution in three counties during the spring: Hillsborough, Pasco, and Hernando. After the pilot, additional users will soon be able to benefit from the solution.
