Leeo builds technology, products and services to enable you, your family and friends to be safer and more connected. Leeo Ping lets you know that your family and friends are ok and also lets them know that you are ok too. Our service helps reduce the challenges of independent living, either at home or in a community.

Leeo Ping is an ambient, intelligent, sensor-enabled service that provides information and notification to a private mutual network of family, close friends and caregivers. Notifications include each individual’s environmental, presence and activity quality. This mutuality is unique to services of this kind.

The Ping service provides glanceable traffic light status of your loved ones via sensors including the Leeo Smart Alert nightlight while in home and your smart phone/smart watch when outside the home. Together, these provide intelligence about the condition of our loved ones through a private trusted circle of family and close friends who can keep an eye out for each other.

Ideal uses of Leeo’s trusted circle include aging parents that live alone in their homes, children that want to know that their parents are ok, as well as parents that want to know that their parents are ok.
