    Hello @kbass and welcome to the forum! I'm afraid I'm not sure of any particular equipment to suggest off the top of my head. I've tagged your discussion as 'unanswered', hopefully someone else here will be able to offer a more knowledgeable response.

    If not, I can do some research and find out what I can for you. I'm sure most parents can say "the worry never goes away" no matter how independent your children are, and it's a sign that you obviously care very much about your daughter. It's great that social services are encouraging her independence, can you share what has prompted that?

    Alex. Thanks for responding to my forum post.  Alice’s main issue is learning difficulties with infrequent night seizures.  She is vulnerable in public but quite self sufficient at home.  Don’t get me wrong she could make a roast or lasagne but can fry bacon.  Make a toastie and could probably do a jacket spud.  Any level of independence done safely allows her to lead a more fulfilling life.  We are trialing it so I can leave the house for short periods of time for work or who know pleasure purposes.  Obviously to be built up gradually.

    Hi @kbass

    Have you looked into the Nest and Ring devices? I know for sure that they can link in with other smart home gadgets like Google Nest Speakers or Alexa devices, and you can often view those cameras through your phone on an app. Some providers do generally have a subcription where you can access features like face recognition too.

    I have looked yes but I’m bambozzled by it all.  It’s like I need some tech person to design it for me. 😂

    I get what you mean, it can be difficult to get your head around some of it. I would recommend looking at some guides / reviews / tutorials on YouTube, that normally helps me with a techy purchase.
