A reusable sensor that can be attached to a diaper and wirelessly let a caregiver know it needs changing was recently unveiled by Opro9 – a brand division of CviLux Corporation – during Computex Taipei 2016.
The Opro9 Smart Diaper sensor, manufactured using SGS certified-safe materials, can be placed on any disposable diaper using a Velcro strap to avoid physical contact and discomfort for the baby.
Another great feature about this solution is that its downloadable smart diaper app provides an easy-to-use interface to help new parents review and track their baby's conditions. “This single app can also monitor five diaper sensors simultaneously,”the company said.
The Smart Diaper App provides statistics, including records of daily and weekly urination times, average number of times urinated, urination frequency, and so on, to allow parents to use its records to make appropriate health-related decisions. Using CviLux's secure cloud, the cloud-based data analysis programs combined with clinical research from medical professionals can help provide parents with even more accurate healthcare data on their baby.
For other Apple HomeKit-compatible devices, Opro9 also unveiled its first series of smart home devices with the iU9 Smart Power Switch and iU9 Smart Lightbulb Socket for the consumer space.
Both devices are controllable by app, where users can remotely control and monitor energy consumption and dimming light control in their home. According to CviLux, it expects the HomeKit ecosystem to expand significantly with the recent announcement of the Apple Home, a central app that will be able to control all HomeKit-compatible devices from different MFI-certified manufacturers.
