What is the 3rings plug?

3rings is a smart plug designed to reduce the worry that families have about their ageing mums and dads by answering the question “Is my loved one OK today?”

Simply plug an appliance your loved one uses regularly, like the kettle or TV into your 3rings plug and tell us when you want us to check that they’re OK.

You can set flexible rules which suit your loved ones’ lives.

When the kettle or TV is turned on, comforting messages are sent to up to 10 family members and friends by smartphone app, email, text or automated calls. If no activity is detected, they get an alert.

So, if you worry about your ageing loved ones and can’t always be there, the 3rings plug is peace of mind for you and your family, and at the same time lets your loved ones stay independent and in their own home.

Iris’ story

The plug was designed because Steve, founder of 3rings and his family were worried about their Mum, Iris.

Iris is in her 80’s and lives happily and independently in her own home. One morning, compression fractures in her back left Iris unable to get out of bed. The phone and emergency call button were in reach, but Iris didn’t raise the alarm.

The 3rings plug was there to let Iris’ family know that something wasn’t right by alerting them when she didn’t turn her kettle on that morning.

How it works

A mobile phone signal is all that’s needed at the home where the plug is being used.

How it works

When your loved one turns on the appliance connected to the 3rings plug, it lets the 3rings Portal know using its inbuilt mobile connection.

The 3rings Portal ‘listens’ for activity based on the times you set.

You and your family or friends are notified that everything is OK or alerted if no activity has been detected.

The plug complies with UK regulations and is recommended for UK use only.
