What is Walabot HOME?

Walabot HOME is a wall-mounted safety device that detects falls automatically in your bathroom. It can automatically tell if someone has fallen by analyzing the entire bathroom space using radio frequency sensor technology. No cameras, pendants or bracelets are required. In the event of a fall, your emergency contact is notified through a two-way voice call, so they can get you the help you need.

Who can benefit from Walabot HOME?

Walabot HOME can be used by anyone. It is, however, particularly useful to people who might be prone to falling, due to illness or advanced age, especially those living alone.

What are the advantages of choosing Walabot HOME over other fall monitoring devices?

Walabot HOME is different from any other fall monitoring device on the market. For starters, there are no wearables bogging you down (necklaces, watches, etc.) and no button that needs to be pushed to indicate an emergency. It also has no camera and therefore maintains your privacy during the monitoring process.
Furthermore, knowing that time is of the essence, once a fall has been detected, Walabot HOME quickly calls your emergency contact on your behalf, enabling efficient two-way voice communication through the device itself – so they can get the help the you need.

What is included in the Walabot HOME package?

The box containing your Walabot HOME includes one Walabot HOME device, one power adapter, four double-sided adhesive strips, and one Walabot HOME user guide.

What does the Walabot HOME device look like?

The Walabot HOME device is a 7 x 7-inch white plastic square, with an AC power adapter for electricity. In the center is a touchscreen, which shows you that the device is monitoring. All user functions are carried out through this touchscreen.

What happens if I fall?

When a fall is detected, the LED light on the right side of the screen of your Walabot HOME device will flash blue. The device will then announce in a clear voice that a fall has been detected and that a phone call will be placed to your emergency contact. At the same time, your emergency contact will receive an SMS notifying them that a fall has occurred.

If you do not cancel the alarm at this time, your emergency contact will be called, establishing two-way voice communication through the Walabot HOME device itself. You will then be able to speak to and hear your emergency contact through the device speakers. This entire process, from the time you have fallen until the time your emergency contact is reached, is approximately two minutes.

What are the technical requirements for running Walabot HOME?

Walabot HOME must be mounted on the wall, in the center of your bathroom in plain sight, 5 feet (1.5 meters) from the ground. It should not be hung near metal (shelving or otherwise).

In order for the device to function, it needs an electrical outlet within reach and a WiFi connection in the bathroom. Without both electricity and WiFi, the device will not work.

Please note: Your emergency contact designated during the installation process will also need to download the free Walabot HOME App in order to enable two-way communication in the event of a fall.

At what distance can a fall be detected?

A fall can be detected at a range of up to 10 feet (3 meters) in front of the device and within 6 feet (1.8 meters) on either side of the device.

Is Walabot HOME for the whole home? Will it detect falls outside the bathroom?

Walabot HOME is designed to monitor bathroom spaces that are up to 10 feet X 10 feet (3 meters X 3 meters) in size. A single device can only monitor this specific area and not an entire home or any area outside of the bathroom. If your bathroom is larger than this size, the device needs to be placed in the area most critical for monitoring.

Can the device recognize which specific person has fallen?

Walabot HOME cannot specifically detect which person has fallen.

Can more than one person be protected by Walabot HOME at a single location?

Walabot HOME can detect the fall of any one person who is alone in the bathroom. If more than one person is in the bathroom at the same time, the device cannot ensure that a fall will be detected.

How long does it take to trigger an alarm in the event of a fall?

Once a fall has occurred, in order to give you time to respond in case of a false alarm, there will be a delay of up to two minutes before an alarm is triggered. During this time, you can cancel the alarm by either standing up or tapping the ‘Cancel Alarm’ button on the device’s screen.

What if I need help, do you offer support?

Please contact [email protected] or send a message through the Walabot HOME App.

Where does Walabot HOME work?

Walabot HOME is designed for use in the bathroom. With so many falls happening in the bathroom – often with more serious injuries, and potentially fatal results – it is the most dangerous room in the house, and where you need protection most.

How does Walabot HOME work?

Walabot Home uses smart motion sensing technology (based on radio wave signals rather than cameras) to continuously monitor the bathroom area in case of a fall. Once installed on the bathroom wall, it can automatically detect if someone has fallen by analyzing the entire bathroom space.

If a fall is detected, the device will give you time (up to two minutes) to stand back up, if you are able. If during this time you do not cancel the alarm, Walabot HOME will automatically call your emergency contact, enabling two-way voice communication through the speakers in the device – so you can get the help you need.

How is Walabot HOME installed?

Walabot HOME needs to be mounted and installed in the bathroom you intend to monitor. The device should be placed at a height of 5 feet (1.5 meters) from the ground, using the 4 adhesive strips provided in the box.

The device needs to be plugged into an electrical outlet and in clear view of the bathroom (not behind anything). It should not be installed inside the bath or over the bathtub.

After the Walabot HOME is mounted and plugged into an electrical outlet, the prompts on the device’s touchscreen will ask you to connect your device to WiFi, pair the device with your emergency contact’s mobile phone, set the perimeter of the bathroom, and perform a test run.

It is highly recommended to watch our short before getting started.

I don’t have a good spot for the device on the wall. Can I place it on a shelf or on the sink and have it lean against the wall?

It is crucial for Walabot HOME to be mounted on a wall and at the correct height of 5 feet (1.5 meters) from the floor. The device should not be placed on shelves or any other surface in the room.

Will the adhesive strips work on all surfaces?

The adhesive strips included with your Walabot HOME device will work on any surface in the bathroom. However, it is not recommended to use them on wallpaper, as they might fall off or damage the wallpaper.

For optimal performance, it is important to clean the wall’s surface with rubbing alcohol and a soft cloth and let the wall dry before adhering the strips.

Can my Walabot HOME be moved to a different bathroom?

The device can be easily dismounted and transported from one bathroom to another. The change will require new adhesive strips for the new wall, and you will need to initiate a recalibration of the new room. This feature can be accessed by clicking on the settings icon appearing on the top right corner of the home screen -> clicking on “Advanced Settings” -> clicking on “Redo Room Calibration”.

How can I take the Walabot HOME off my wall without damaging it?

To remove the device from your wall, the tabs of the adhesive strips need to be carefully pulled and stretched in a gentle motion, parallel to the wall and straight up. The strips will come off easily and leave no residue. It’s a simple process, but you should be very cautious, as the strips can snap out when they’re removed.

What if there is no WiFi in the bathroom?

WiFi is an essential component of the device’s ability to function. Without WiFi, Walabot HOME will not work. If you have WiFi in your home, you should be able to connect the device to your home network. If you have more than one network, choose the one with the strongest signal.

If WiFi connection is lost will the device still monitor?

The device must be connected to WiFi in order to monitor. If WiFi connection is lost, the device will not be able to monitor.

What happens if I unplug it?

Electricity is an essential component of the device’s ability to function. If the device is unplugged, it will not work and will not be able to detect falls at all.

Does the device have a backup battery source? What would happen in case of a blackout?

No, Walabot HOME does not have a backup battery source. In case of a blackout, the device will not work.

Is Walabot HOME waterproof?

While Walabot HOME can endure humid bathroom conditions, it is not waterproof. Make sure to keep the device on the wall and not let it fall into the sink, toilet, or bathtub.

Can a fall be detected through a shower curtain or glass?

Yes, a fall can be detected through a shower curtain or glass.

Can a fall be detected in the dark or through steam?

Yes, a fall can be detected in the dark and through steam.

Will the device fall off the wall due to humidity or its own weight?

Walabot HOME is designed to be supported by the adhesive strips it comes with. If the device is affixed and mounted properly, it should not be affected by humidity or its own weight.

How do I calibrate Walabot HOME?

Calibration is done during the setup process. The audio instructions will prompt you to walk around the bathroom in order for the device to learn your specific bathroom. The room calibration contributes to the accuracy of the device’s ability to detect a fall.

What happens if the room is not calibrated properly?

The device can only begin monitoring once the calibration is complete. If the calibration is not done according to the audio instructions, this may result in either false alarms or failure to detect falls.

Can I test the device to ensure it’s working?

Yes! It is highly recommended that you test your Walabot HOME after completing the installation process.

How do I test the Walabot HOME?

You can perform a test fall by pressing the “test fall” icon that appears at the top of the home screen and following the audio instructions.
There is also an option to make a test call to your emergency contact from the device by pressing the “test call” icon that appears at the top of the home screen. This will call the designated emergency contact to ensure that two-way communication is established successfully.

How will I know that my Walabot HOME is working?

After successful installation, you will see the home screen which has a digital clock and will read “Monitoring”. This indicates that your Walabot HOME is connected and working properly.

Can there be more than one device in a bathroom?

One Walabot HOME device is sufficient to cover a 10 X 10 feet area in its entirety. If the room size is bigger than 10 X 10 feet, the device should be hung in the area of the bathroom in which the user needs coverage most.
In case the room size is bigger than 10 X 10 feet and you have multiple devices, an additional device can be placed in the room in order to cover the entire area.

What is the learning mode used for?

The automatic learning mode enables the device to learn its environment to maximize accuracy within a 48-hour period following installation. During this period the system will not detect a fall, however, you can perform a test fall and call your emergency contact at any time. At the end of the learning period, the system will automatically start monitoring and notify your emergency contact in the case of a fall.

If I experience false alarms, what should I do?

If you experience any technical difficulties at any point in time, please contact us at [email protected]

In addition, the device’s learning mode can be reactivated. By doing so, the device will be temporarily placed in a state in which it will relearn the environment for the next 48 hours. During this time, it will not detect falls.

What is the purpose of the button on the Walabot HOME?

The button’s function is to cancel an alarm and to signify when a fall is detected by lighting up blue.

Will lying in a bathtub trigger an alarm?

Yes, lying in a bathtub will trigger an alarm. Since the device is meant to detect falls in the shower or bathtub, it will not distinguish between a person taking a bath and a person who has fallen in the bathtub.

If I pick up something from the floor will the alarm go off?

The alarm will not be triggered if you pick up something from the floor, as the sensors will recognize that you have quickly stood up again after bending down.

Can I cancel the alarm if everything is ok?

Yes. The alarm can be cancelled if everything is okay. Just stand up or click the ‘Cancel Alarm’ button on the Walabot HOME device’s touchscreen.

Why does Walabot HOME ask for feedback when I cancel an alarm?

If you cancel an alarm for whatever reason, the feedback form automatically pops up on the screen. While you can ignore it, it is recommended to respond so we can learn what went wrong and better serve you in the long-run.

Will Walabot HOME work with pets in the home?

While pets can be in the house while the device is monitoring, pets walking around the bathroom can trigger a false alarm.

Can the device be synced with Amazon Echo/Alexa?

Currently, Walabot HOME cannot be synced with other devices.

Does the device use x-rays or any other type of harmful ionizing radiation?

Walabot HOME does not use x-rays or any other type of ionizing radiation. It uses radio frequency which is non-ionizing and safe to have around on a daily basis.

What band of the electromagnetic spectrum does the device utilize?

The Walabot HOME uses very low-power radio waves, in the frequency band of 6-8.5 GHz.
The transmit power is weaker than that of a Bluetooth headset, and a hundred times weaker than that of a WiFi router.

Has the device been certified by the FDA?

The device is safe and conforms with all the requirements of FCC, and it does not require FDA certification.

Is there a problem with pacemakers when using the device?

The effect of Walabot HOME on pacemakers is negligible, as the radio signals are less than one percent of a signal from a cell phone. Moreover, Walabot HOME operates at higher frequencies, meaning the penetration depth of its signal into the body is shallower than that of a cell phone signal (i.e. the waves enter the human body at a much shallower level than cell phone waves).

Can the device detect heart attacks or other medical conditions?

No, Walabot HOME cannot detect heart attacks or other medical conditions. However, if such conditions result in a fall, the device will detect the fall.

Can Walabot HOME see through walls?

Unlike the Walabot DIY, this device was not built to see through walls.

I live in a rural area. Can the device still work there?

So long as there is WiFi and an electrical source, Walabot HOME can work anywhere.

Who is the emergency contact and how are they chosen?

The emergency contact will receive a call from the Walabot HOME in case of a fall. You can choose anyone you want to serve as your emergency contact. You will need to coordinate with that person, as they’ll need to download the free Walabot HOME App, so their phone can be paired to your Walabot HOME during the installation process.

While it is not essential, it is best to have your emergency contact on-hand during the installation process, so you can be sure your devices are properly paired.

What is device pairing and how do I do it?

Device pairing connects the Walabot HOME with your emergency contact’s mobile phone.
Upon installation, the onscreen menu will prompt you to enter your emergency contact’s phone number.

Once you’ve entered your emergency contact’s phone number on the Walabot HOME device, your emergency contact will receive a text message with a link and a pairing code. The link allows your emergency contact to install the free Walabot HOME App on their phone and create an account.

Once the account is created and verified, your emergency contact can enter the pairing code. They can also enter a name for the Walabot HOME device (usually the name of the person being monitored), so they’ll know who’s calling (and why) in the event of a fall.

How long will it take to call my emergency contact?

From the time of a fall until the time your emergency contact is called, there will be a short time delay. This can be up to two minutes.

If I fall, what kind of emergency help do I get? Who will know I have an emergency?

If you fall, Walabot HOME will call only the one emergency contact that you defined during the installation process. It will not connect to a monitoring center, nor can it be used to call 911 or any other emergency service. It is up to your emergency contact to provide the necessary assistance.

I’d like to add multiple emergency contacts. Can I have more than one emergency contact?

Currently, only one emergency contact can be designated at a time. As such, one Walabot HOME device can call only one emergency contact.

What kind of phone does the emergency contact need?

Walabot HOME works with any Android or iOS phone. Your emergency contact will need to download the free Walabot HOME App from either the App Store or Google Play Store in order to receive automatic notifications in case of a fall and establish communication with you.

Can Walabot HOME work with a land line?

Currently, Walabot HOME cannot call a land line. This means that whoever is defined as your emergency contact needs to have a smart phone in order to download the Walabot HOME App and receive calls in case of a fall.
The option of calling a land line will be available soon.

How do I change my emergency contact?

The emergency contact can be changed by clicking on the ‘Settings’ icon which appears on the top right corner of the home screen  clicking on ‘My Caregiver’ -> ‘Caregiver Name’ -> ‘Unpair Device’. Once this is done, a new emergency contact needs to be added in the same way that was done during the initial installation process in order for the device to return to monitoring mode.

How much does Walabot HOME cost?

The price of the Walabot HOME device is $149.99 with an additional monthly fee of $4.99 which begins one month after purchase. The Walabot HOME App your emergency contact uses is free.

What payment methods can I use?

Purchases can be made via credit card.

How fast will I receive my Walabot HOME shipment?

Walabot HOME ships within 5 days of purchase, and can take 5-7 business days once shipped. Upon shipment, you will receive a tracking link to the email address you provided during checkout.
