  • What is the Inspyre™?

    Inspyre™ is a patented app that tracks and monitors movements and sends notifications while also providing meaningful insights on activity levels, patterns, wakefulness, and sleep. The Inspyre can run on certain Apple and Android watches, making it a fully portable solution.

  • Can Inspyre detect seizures?

    SmartMonitor does not have any FDA cleared or approved medical devices. Inspyre is not intended to treat, diagnose, mitigate, prevent, or cure epilepsy, seizures, or any other disease or condition. Please consult your healthcare provider with any questions or concerns you may have regarding your health or medical condition.

  • What are the benefits of Inspyre™?

    Inspyre™ users have told us that the device provides independence from constant supervision. They have expressed increased confidence because they can get help by simply pushing a button. Their family members and caregivers then gain respite knowing they will receive a text message and phone call should their help be needed.

    Family members appreciate the peace-of-mind, especially at night knowing they can be on hand to provide assistance when needed. Furthermore, users and caregivers alike value that the activity reports can be downloaded at any time for thorough analysis.

  • How does Inspyre™ work?

    With patented miniaturized technology and sophisticated algorithms, Inspyre analyzes activity outside a normal spectrum and reliably issues notifications upon the onset of various types of movements. Users can also summon help with a simple push of a button on the watch. Inspyre tracks movement patterns plus the time, duration and location (advanced model) of any unusual occurrences. Users can securely access their private information and send archived copies to their care provider for later review.

    Inspyre™ can run on Apple Watches and Android watches, and works in conjunction with an Android (7.0 os or above - Android watches only) or an iPhone (iPhone 7 and later models running iOS v8.0 and above - Apple Watches only). Users without an LTE/cellular plan for their watch need to carry the device running Inspyre within a 15 - 30 foot range; for example in pockets, purses, backpacks, etc. When the app notices patterns of unusual movements, it wirelessly signals the user’s phone, which then sends a text and calls a family members’ phone, within seconds.

    The caregiver’s phone, which receives the notifications, can be anywhere. Recorded events are downloadable. Notifications can be sent or canceled by the user with a simple push of a button.

  • Can I use Inspyre™ if I am on medication or just had surgery?

    Inspyre, running on an Android watch or Apple watch, is a non-invasive, passive device. It will have no impact on current or future medication regimens or any surgery and it does NOT require you to make any changes to your lifestyle. The Inspyre is not a substitute for medical care. Again, it does not prevent, predict or treat seizures or any other kind of medical condition.

  • Can I use Inspyre outside my home?

    Yes, the Inspyre can be used in bed, in schools, offices and elsewhere as long as the phone and the watch are within bluetooth range of each other (15-30 feet) or you have an LTE smartwatch with a cellular plan (Android only at this time).

  • What if a notification is accidentally triggered?

    Users have the ability to cancel any notification by pressing the Cancel button on the watch. The Cancel button will be active as soon as a notification is sent.

  • Can I get help if I do not have any movements of unusual interest?

    Yes, Inspyre has a Call for Help button that when pressed immediately sends a notification to the designated family members or caregivers.

The Call for Help button is available on the Silver and Gold plans.

  • Do I need internet or WIFI connectivity?

    Inspyre can communicate in two ways - the phone can communicate with the watch using a Bluetooth connection or the watch can communicate without a phone if it is an LTE model with a cellular plan (Android only at this time). To use Inspyre without LTE, you need an Android or Apple watch and a smartphone with a data plan (or constant wifi connectivity) within a 15-30 foot range. Your family or caregivers can receive alerts on any cell phone, anywhere.

  • What if the non-LTE watch with Inspyre gets further than 15-30 feet away from the phone?

    When Inspyre and phone are separated by more than Bluetooth range distance (approx 15-30 feet), then they may be disconnected and it will not be able to send out notifications. It is important that the user keep their smartphone with them.
