Key Features

GEWA One is a remote control that helps users manage appliances in their own homes.

The GEWA One can manage multiple devices including; TV, music system, lamps, recliner chairs, profiling beds, door and window openers. By inserting a SIM card, the GEWA One also works as a mobile phone enabling the user to keep in touch with friends, family and quickly reach a carer through either a call or text message.

For ease of use, the user can choose whether to control the device through the touch screen or navigate with an external switch and the specially designed symbols, colours and voice recordings can assist the user in quickly finding the right button.
