Information from the watch is forwarded to an unlimited number of caregivers every 5-20 minutes, depending on the settings you choose. (More frequently updates affects battery life.) See the BoundaryCare Fact Sheet for specific details, or even the entire User Guide. Users choose which data types they wish to have enabled.
No alerts go unanswered
Alerts can be received by SMS, email, or notification
One of our most powerful features, BoundaryCare’s alerts structure is second to none. Waterfall alerts are especially useful, allowing you to schedule who should receive alerts when, and who the backup caregivers are if an alert is not acknowledged. Outreach includes both reminders and calling.

A dashboard in your pocket
Family or professional caregivers receive the most urgent information on their handheld device (iPhone, Android phone, iPad, etc.). They can check on their loved one at a glance, and receive alerts whenever they are triggered by the Apple Watch. Caregivers may also turn off alerts when they are off duty.
The web portal
This is the “command center” for BoundaryCare, where all data is saved, where reminders and alerts are configured, caregivers are managed, and more. You can even view various metrics over time, helping you to identify trends and correlations. Data can be exported to be shared with a health professional.
For organizations with many BoundaryCare users, the web dashboard starts with a population-at-a-glance screen, allowing administrators to move from the overview to individual clients or patients.
How to get started with BoundaryCare
The basics are the same for everyone:
- You’ll need a cellular-enabled Apple Watch. (Wifi-only will not suffice.) For many, the Apple Watch SE is the best solution, but if you need oxygen saturation monitoring, make sure you have an Apple Watch 6 or better.
- The Watch must be paired with an iPhone. (You may pair it with your phone or with the loved one’s.)
- Download BoundaryCare from the App Store on the paired iPhone.
- Launch the app, and follow the setup instructions.
(IDD clients may receive a pre-configured kit from their provider, which includes everything you need and is ready to go.)
