    Simpler than IOT devices, and much better than another stove alarm - yet there are none (to date) to be found. A timer, capable of selecting varied time durations, but instead of making a noise, severs the 240-volt electricity at the designated time. Persons with Narcolepsy, and many other disorders would benefit enormously.

    Not too condescending, are you? You can't be bothered to give your elderly relatives some personal attention so you let machines keep them corralled.

    Why not just lock the elderly up in rubber rooms so that they cannot hurt themselves or cause any mischief?!

      The point of the article is to help elderly relatives and friends to maintain their independence for longer, and to do this in a way that's safer than simply 'leaving them to it'. In an ideal world, we could be around our relatives 24/7. This isn't an ideal world.
