Moneual Smart Care System Helps Deaf Identify Sounds

by Paul Strauss

While there’s plenty of hype going on about smartwatches these days, most of the watches out there solve fairly superfluous problems – like seeing that you have a phone call because you’re too lazy to get the phone out of your pocket. On the other hand, this smartwatch could really help deaf and hard-of-hearing people.


The Android 4-powered Moneaual Smart Care System (SCS1000) can be used to alert people with hearing difficulties to emergency situations by relaying information to the LCD screen of the watch, as well as an accompanying vibration alert.

The device can detect specific sounds and alert users to them on the watch display. In indoor mode, the watch is smart enough to identify everything from the sound of a doorbell ringing, to a smoke alarm beeping, to a crying baby to a phone ringing or boiling water. In outdoor mode, it can detect car horns and other loud noises to protect wearers from dangerous situations. The watch also offers an emergency mode which can call 911 and request help on your behalf.

There’s no word yet on pricing or a release date for the Moneaual Smart Care System, but it could definitely be a great gadget for those with partial or total hearing loss when it’s ultimately released.

    I can see Hard Of Hearing and Late Deafened Adults/Teens getting onboard with this. People born deaf or become deaf early, not so much. They’re generally considerably more aware of their surroundings than their Hearing counterparts, and some Deaf are extremely sensitive toward any attempt to “cure” them of deafness; they equate it with attempting to “cure” someone of being Chinese, black, Jewish, whatever, especially if the alerts are all in text form with no option to display an animated graphic in addition to/instead of.
