ASX listed IoT company Xped subsidiary JCT Healthcare has won a tender worth $649,000 from the South Australian Government’s urban development arm, Renewal SA, for the supply, installation, and support of technology services for people with disabilities to approximately 30 properties being constructed by Renewal SA.
JCT will provide monitoring and control of lights, door locks, air conditioning, shutters, blinds, power switches, cupboards, temperature sensors and smoke detectors, integrated with front door cameras and intercoms to allow for remote viewing and two-way voice communication.
Xped said JCT’s smart health technologies being implemented included activity and agitation detection, fall detection, and wireless panic buttons.
“JCTs cloud based NuCams software and next generation mobile app are also part of the solution and their integration with the smart device technologies was critical in winning the tender,” Xped said “JCT expects to complete delivery of this project in first half 2018.”
It added: “JCT is continuing to pursue other tender opportunities across Australia with these similar technology solutions. The JCT smart support technology solution offers a professional smart health solution that can be implemented in both new build sites as well as retrofitted to existing dwellings. The solution provides independence to the tenant and their family, while still allowing the support worker to provide the support required.”
Xped announced plans to acquire JCT in April 2016 saying it aimed to become a major force in the “lucrative healthcare technology and communications market.” Following completion of that acquisition it announced in December 2016 its plans to expand into the aged care market saying it had signed up five new channel partners that would give JCT a national presence in the aged care sector.
It also announced plans to integrate into JCT’s products its Auto Discovery Remote Control (ADRC) technology that, embedded in devices, enables them to be monitored and controlled from a smartphone app.
In July 2016, Xped announced that JCT would develop smart hub technology for Disability South Australia to enable people with a disability to control functions in their home, such as turning on the coffee machine to contacting their case manage from a tablet or phone.
