At the crossroads of technology and the human ...

“The idea of Nirbi sprouted in 2016 when I had to equip my grandmother with a remote alarm system. She was starting to experience age-related cognitive impairment but was still enjoying her garden and walking around the neighborhood daily. Our family wanted to secure her without deprivation of autonomy, so inside and outside the home. In addition, the intervention of foreign tele-workers in our family circle seemed intrusive and unsuitable: we wanted to be the caregivers and receive the alert calls directly.

After several weeks of investigation, a first observation was needed: the French sector of the telecare offers exactly the opposite of what I was looking for! The market offers almost exclusively home-based remote assistance subscriptions via call centers that are therefore inoperative outside the home and connected to call centers where strangers talk to customers. The device itself is relegated to the background, sacrilege for the electronics engineer that I am!

In view of this, I decided to scientifically test a dozen devices manufactured by the world’s best suppliers and profoundly modify the most qualitative electronic product of this selection by implementing my own computer code so that it meets my need. After tens of thousands of lines of programming and many sleepless nights, the result was bluffing! Two years later, with thousands of hours of field tests and certifications, I surround myself with Daniel and Quentin and create a company to offer you Nirbi, a qualitative telealarme without subscription and which all the embedded intelligence is French.”
