We have carried out surveys for mapping and analyzes of technologies, preferably sensor technology, IoT solutions and various types of materials that can contribute to increased living quality for people with substance abuse and mental health disorders. The surveys are performed on residents with mental and psychological disorders, municipal staff, relatives and neighbours.

We have also done initial analyzes of how the technologies can be adapted to people with substance abuse and mental health disorders residents' specific needs related to the diseases (intoxication and mental disorders), behaviour, functional level etc., employees work duties and safety needs, as well as reduced municipal operating and maintenance costs for the homes.

We have especially focused on the adaptation of digital technologies related to fire, as people with substance abuse and mental health disorders are in the high-risk group for fire. We have conducted initial analyzes of relevant technologies (digital, IoT and materials) related to fire prevention, warning and extinguishing.
