Check on Grandma
Imagine you bought an Ecobee3 for a senior citizen. There are plenty of devices on the market that can detect a fall or injury and allow a person to call for help. However, in the unfortunate event a loved one has passed, there are often stories where they do not frequently receive visitors and go unnoticed for days or even weeks. With this recipe, you can receive an email whenever Smart Home/Away is activated on your Ecobee3. If the motion sensor detects no movement in the home for a period of time when they are scheduled to be there, you can be notified via email. Elderly who are not mobile often have caregivers come by to help them. This would also alert you that a caregiver had not been by to see them on a particular day, and you could call to check that they are OK.
