Features

The Amba device has been specifically designed with an exceptional series of features to help the elderly organise and orientate themselves, feel less lonely, and stay in touch with their extended family and friends.

The Amba system is a closed, invitation-only environment, secured in a Swiss data centre which exceeds EU data security and privacy law requirements. The Amba system does not hold any information which could be used to identify or locate any users. In addition, financial and address information is held completely separately by a PCI (payment card industry) certified provider of billing services.
