My Dad is old, and lives by himself. He’s doing OK, but I like to check in on him at least once a day. He has a cell phone, no home phone service.
Every once in a while, though, he forgets to get his phone from the bedroom in the morning. So then we spend all day trying to call him, hoping he hasn’t fallen or otherwise in trouble, and eventually someone has to go over there, check on him, and get his damn phone back in his pocket where it belongs. This isn’t a huge deal as me & other family members live close, but it’s still a bit of a hassle.
What I’m wondering is if there’s some kind of internetty thing I could put in his living room / kitchen are where I could talk through it and say “Hey Dad! Go get your damn phone!” and he could reply and I could hear. A webcam would be nice, too. I’m willing to spend a bit of $$ on this. Looking at Amazon, lots of these kinds of things are out there, but many get bad reviews. Does anyone have any direct experience? What should I look for?
Essentially, I need a two-way baby monitor for adults!
