As shown in FIG. 1, the notification device 10 watching described below, comprises an acquisition unit 11 and the evaluation unit 12 and generating unit 13 and the communication unit 14. Acquisition unit 11, the consumption of resources by the at least one target device 31 is used in the target space subject to be watched to live, is obtained from the measuring device 30. Evaluation unit 12, acquisition unit 11 evaluates the difference between the second consumption is consumption of the latest resource first consumption and acquisition unit 11 has acquired a consumed amount of resources acquired peacetime . Evaluation unit 12 outputs the results of the evaluation results obtained. Generating unit 13 generates broadcast information different content depending on the evaluation result of the evaluation unit 12. The communication unit 14, a broadcast information generation unit 13 generates, transmits through an electrical communication line 21 to the alarm device 20 that is registered. Note that the normal times, for example, consumption of resources is in the state is within a predetermined range from the first consumption.

According to the watch notification device 10 of the present embodiment, to evaluate the difference between the second consumption is first consumed and the latest consumption is consumption peacetime, notification of different content depending on the evaluation since generating information, it is simply compared with the case where it is judged that an abnormal using the threshold, it is possible to reduce the frequency of false alarms. Further, since generating the broadcast information contents corresponding to the difference between the first consumption amount and the second consumption, by evaluating the information, such as occurs how much and differences differences, the subject's abnormality there is a possibility that be found signs.

Notification information may include contact information is a method to contact the subject from the administrator of the notification device 20. The communication unit 14 can perform a scheduled notification for notifying the notification information to the notification device 20 to a predetermined time, an immediate notification and to notify the broadcast information to the broadcast device 20 when the broadcast information has been determined it is desirable. In this case, generator 13, it is desirable to change the contents of contact information depending on whether ordinary or notified immediately notified.

Measuring device 30, for a plurality of target devices 31 of interest of the plurality of devices 3 used in the target space, it is desirable to measure separately the consumption of resources. In this case, the evaluation unit 12 sets the degree of urgency with a combination of resource consumption of each target device 31, generator 13, it is desirable to generate broadcast information different content depending on the urgency.

Notification device 20 includes a display device 201, the broadcast information includes a first consumption amount and the second consumption, side by side with the first consumption amount and the second consumption on the screen of the display device 201 it is desirable to display.

Configuration example described below, the target space is housing 40, the subject is assumed to be a senior citizen. However, the target space, if the space in which the subject to life for a long period of time is not limited to housing 40, may be a room in the facility. In addition, the subject is not limited to the elderly, it may be a family that do not live together.

Informing device 20 that receives the broadcast information from the watch notification device 10, for example, a smart phone, a tablet terminal, such as mobile personal computers. Notification device 20 includes a display as a display device 201, a touch panel or keyboard as the operation unit 202. Telecommunication line 21, it is assumed a VPN (Virtual Private Network) which is built on the Internet, it may be a mobile phone network. The electric communication line 21, when including both Internet and mobile telephone network, a gateway for relaying the Internet and mobile telephone networks, devices such as a server is required to a telecommunications line 21.

Watching notification device 10 may be an independent apparatus, in the following, HEMS controller: suppose that is realized as a part of the functions of (HEMS Home Energy Management System). HEMS controller is a controller that manages the operation of the device 3 used in residential 40.

Hereinafter will be described in more detail the embodiment. In the embodiment described below, as shown in FIG. 1, a case device 3 provided in the housing 40 is configured to operate electricity as resources as an example. In other words, device acquisition unit 11 acquires a consumption of resources from the measuring device 30 (target device) 31 is assumed to electrical equipment.

However, even when used as a target device 31 a device operating as a resource of the gas or tap water, the technical idea described below is applicable. For example, cooking, hot water, when used as a target device 31 a device operating as a resource to be a gas a device relating to such heating, by a measuring device 30 gas meter to monitor the flow rate of the gas is measured, the target device it is possible to grasp the operating state of 31. For example, water, when used as a target device 31 a device operating the A and tap water a device relating to such hot water as a resource, by the water meter is measuring device 30 monitors the flow rate measured, of the target device 31 it is possible to grasp the operating state.

This embodiment, because using electrical devices operating power as a resource as a target device 31, the consumption of resources (power) used by the target device 31, features or incorporated in distribution board 32 that is installed in a residence 40 metrology apparatus 30 is measured as the amount of power. Measuring device 30, for example, comprises a sensor (not shown) for measuring the current flowing in the distribution board 32 to branched branch circuit to a plurality of systems respectively. Measuring device 30 includes a current value, each of the sensors is measured, by using the line voltage of the branch circuit, to calculate the amount of power consumed in each branch circuit for each unit time. Sensor is, for example, a Rogowski coil incorporated clamp type current transformer is attached to the path of the branch circuit, the distribution board 32.

Unit measurement device 30 measures the amount of power time, 30 seconds, 1 minute, 2 minutes, 5 minutes, 10 minutes, is selected from such as 1 hour. However, a These values ​​of example, may measure the amount of power as the unit time even shorter time. Further, the measuring device 30 is not a power of each branch circuit, it is also possible to adopt a configuration for measuring the power of each device 3.

In general, the distribution board 32 installed in the housing 40, the air-conditioning equipment, microwave ovens, the IH cooking heater: The (IH Induction Heating) relatively large device 3 that the maximum value of the power consumption per unit time as 1 It is assigned branch circuit by the circuit. On the other hand, the distribution board 32, equipment connected to the outlet, for relatively small device 3 that the maximum value of the power consumption per unit time as the luminaire, is that the branch circuit is assigned a room as a unit many. If the branch circuit is assigned to a single device 3, the power consumption of each branch circuit measuring device 30 is measured, it is possible to obtain the power consumption of each device 3. On the other hand, even if the branch circuit is assigned to the room unit, by providing the sensor for each example device 3, it is possible to determine the power consumption of each device 3. Hereinafter, the unit for measuring power consumption without distinguishing whether the branch circuit or discrete device 3 (target device 31) is explained describes a device 3 (target device 31).

Watching notification device 10 includes an acquisition unit 11 for the measuring device 30 acquires a the (per unit time) consumed energy measurement. Acquisition unit 11, the measuring device 30 may be configured to obtain the power consumption for all of the devices 3 to be measured. However, in order to watch the subject does not need to acquire the power consumption for all of the devices 3. The device 3 (target device 31) required to watch the subject will vary depending housing 40. Therefore, the watch notification device 10 includes a setting unit 15 so as to select the device (target device) 31 of interest. That is, acquisition unit 11, set by the setting unit 15 (at least one) power consumption of the target device 31 only, obtained from the measuring device 30.

Setting unit 15, the choice of selectable devices 3 as the target device 31, it is desirable to be displayed on the display device 201 to be described later. Choice of device 3, for example, on a touch panel screen of the display device 201, is displayed in the form of such virtual buttons. For example, options displayed on the display device 201 is selected by the user operating the operation unit 202. Option to display on the display device 201, as will become understandable for the user, it is desirable to identify with room name or device name. The setting unit 15 may include the entire housing 40 choices. If the entire housing 40 is selected as the target device 31, for example, the acquiring unit 11, the consumption of resources by all devices 3 used in the target space subject to live (Housing 40) (power consumption) of, configured to obtain the total amount.

Incidentally, when the number of the target device 31 acquiring unit 11 acquires the power consumption is increased, because the processing load of the watching notification device 10 is increased, the maximum number of selectable choices by the setting unit 15, for example, about 4 it is preferable that are limited to. Now, it is assumed that the branch circuit is assigned a room as a unit. In this case, in response to the operation of the operation device 202 by the user, the setting unit 15, for example, four kinds of "kitchen", "living room", "bedroom", "lavatory toilet" is selected.

Power consumption per each unit of time of the target device 31 acquiring unit 11 has acquired is stored in the storage unit 17 together with date and time clock unit 16 counts. The storage unit 17, the variation of the power consumption of each of the target device 31 is stored a predetermined time period as one cycle. The power consumption stored in the storage unit 17, here it is assumed that the daily units (1 cycle). For example, for each of the target device 31, the power consumption per unit time (e.g. 1 hour) is the period until 0:00 o'clock 0 of the next day as one cycle is stored in the storage unit 17. However, it is also possible to divide the daily into a plurality of periods of each time period. When dividing one day into a plurality of periods may be unequal in length of the individual periods. In short, in the daily life of a residential 40 subjects, focused on the target device 31 periodic or addictive are found in the change of the power consumption, the period to be able extract the periodicity or addictive is set it is sufficient that. Further, since it is likely that changes in the power consumption differs between weekdays and holidays, it is desirable that the stored configured to be able to distinguish and store unit 17 to the power consumption of the weekdays and holidays.

In the following configuration examples, to get the amount of power per hour per day, the storage unit 17 is assumed to store electric energy for at least one week. That is, the storage unit 17 stores the 24 pieces of data per day (power consumption), will store the 168 pieces of data in a week.

By the way, whether or not an abnormality has occurred for the subject's watching is detected by comparison of the behavior in peacetime subject. Notification device 10 watching for this includes a reference portion 18. See section 18 relates the focused device (target device 31), first to extract the transition of power consumption in normal times from the storage unit 17, the criteria for determining whether an abnormality in the subject is occurring It generates and stores the consumption of.

The first consumption, for example, an average value of power consumption per unit time starts for several days in the past that the storage unit 17 stores equal time, the power consumption value of each unit time to. For example, the power consumption for one hour from 8:00 am in the first consumption until 9, the average value of the power consumption for one hour from 8:00 am to 9:00 in 5 days from Monday to Friday it is assign.

For example, a first consumption reference unit 18 is stored, is updated at a predetermined timing. Reference section 18 in one example, (in this example 1 hour) time unit each time has elapsed, and updates the first consumption. Reference section 18 in another example, each time one cycle of the power consumption stored in the storage unit 17 has elapsed, and updates the first consumption. For example, the storage unit 17, when storing the power consumption of the daily units (1 cycle), the reference unit 18 updates the first consumption at 0 daily.

The first consumption, instead of using the average value of several days per unit time, it is also possible to use the maximum or minimum value of several days for each unit time. The first consumption may not be power consumption amount per unit time. For example, by dividing one day into 3-4 sections, the total value of the power consumption amount calculated in each section it is possible to use as the first consumption, also the total power consumption amount per day it is also possible to use as the first consumption. Furthermore, it is also possible to first consumption by combining these values. The first consumption, may be determined for a specific device set by the setting unit 15 (target device 31), for all the devices 3 may be calculated first consumption.

Evaluation unit 12, acquisition unit 11 and the second consumption is the latest power amount acquired is compared to the first consumption reference unit 18 is stored, a second consumption and first to evaluate the difference between the consumption of. That is, the evaluation unit 12, or activity of a subject person is similar to peacetime, or perform different or evaluation and peacetime. Here, the setting unit 15, if the easy device 3 reflects the life of the subject has been selected as the target device 31, if the subject does not live normally (that is, some abnormality occurs in the subject are case), the difference is likely to appear against the power consumption of peacetime.

For example, in any of the target device 31 is selected by the setting unit 15, the power consumption in the time zone of the day is when the difference more than a predetermined reference value has occurred with respect to the power consumption of peacetime, evaluation unit 12 evaluates the abnormality to a subject is likely to have occurred. Alternatively, despite the power consumption amount for each time zone with time are changed in ordinary times, the same applies to the case where the power consumption over time in the day has not changed, the evaluation unit 12 evaluates the abnormality to a subject is likely to have occurred.

The difference between the second consumption and the first consumption, can be evaluated by the distance between the second consumption and first consumption (Euclidean distance or the Manhattan distance). In this case, for a first consumption amount and the second consumption, it calculates a difference for each per unit time or period may be used the sum of the difference as a distance. Determination of specific distance may vary depending on whether the Euclidean distance or the Manhattan distance, even if the use of either distance, it is possible to quantitatively represent the degree of difference.

Evaluation unit 12, the difference between the second consumption and first consumption may be stepwise evaluation. As described above, if the degree of difference if is quantitatively expressed, by using a threshold value of the plurality of stages, it is also possible to divide the difference in a plurality of steps.

Here, when the difference between the second consumption and first consumption is assessed only by a distance, a relationship that the consumption of the second is shifted in the time axis direction with respect to the first consumption also, there is likely to be recognized as a large difference. In this relationship, the second consumption is shifted to the first time-axis direction with respect to consumption, when overlapping the second consumption and first consumption, a second consumption first difference between the consumption of 1 is expected to be reduced significantly. Such an event is, for example, waking up the subject's slower than normal times, occurs when performing the same action as in peacetime.

Therefore, evaluation unit 12, for example, if the number of maximum values ​​of the second consumption number and first consumption maximum value (second variation pattern) (first variation pattern) match ( or if the error of ± 1), it is desirable to move the second consumption first time-axis direction as the degree of overlap is maximized with consumption. Thus After it is relatively moved in the second consumption and first consumption and the time axis direction, the evaluation unit 12, the distance difference between the second consumption and first consumption it may be evaluated by.

For example evaluation unit 12, a first consumption in time corresponding to a second consumption as a first reference amount, the second consumption amount as compared with the first reference amount, first and second consumption the absolute value of the difference between the first reference quantity as a first difference value. The evaluation unit 12, time shifted from the time corresponding to a second consumption given time a first consumption in (a predetermined time just prior to time or a predetermined time time after only) as a second reference amount, the second consumption as compared to the second reference amount, the absolute value of the difference between the second consumption amount and the second reference amount as the second difference value. Evaluation unit 12, based on the smaller of the first difference value and the second difference value, to generate the evaluation result.

Note evaluation unit 12 compares the first difference value and the smaller the better a predetermined threshold value and comparison object value is ones of the second difference value, be output as an evaluation result obtained comparison result good. The generation unit 13, the following cases comparison object value is a threshold, and generates broadcast information indicating that there is no abnormality in the subject, when compared value is greater than the threshold value, that there is an abnormality in a subject it may generate broadcast information indicative.

Evaluation unit 12, it is desirable to evaluate the difference in power consumption for a plurality of target devices 31. In other words, by selecting a plurality of target devices 31 at setting unit 15, so as to obtain the power consumption amount related to a plurality of target devices 31 in acquiring unit 11, the evaluation unit 12, a second for multiple target devices 31 it is desirable to evaluate the differences with respect to the first consumption consumption.

If the setting unit 15 a plurality of target devices 31 is selected, the evaluation unit 12 may be any state of use of the plurality of target devices 31 if different from the normal times, the abnormality occurs in the subject it can be determined that there is a possibility that there. The evaluation unit 12, by combining the change in the power consumption amount extracted for a plurality of target devices 31 may be determined the types of abnormalities occurring in the subject.

The evaluation unit 12, the plurality of target devices 31 of interest, using the power consumption amount calculated for each target device 31, it is desirable to set the urgency by a combination of power consumption. For example, if set high difference (distance), the more often the number of the target device 31 is equal to or greater than the threshold urgency, increased urgency as has occurred many different actions and peacetime.

In addition, the difference between peacetime maximum value or minimum value with respect to the target device 31 appropriate is within the predetermined range, if not substantially change me power amount is straddling the plurality of time zones, the subject is a subject there is a possibility that does not operate the equipment 31. In such a case, the evaluation unit 12 evaluates the status of a subject is likely abnormal. To make this evaluation, the evaluation unit 12, upper and lower limit values ​​of the power consumption for the target device 31 of interest is set. Evaluation unit 12, health state or the power consumption amount of power consumption is equal to or greater than the upper limit value is equal to or less than the lower limit, when continues beyond the predetermined time, the abnormality is caused in the subject It assessed that there is a possibility, to increase the degree of urgency.

Results evaluation unit 12 has been evaluated for subjects given to the generating unit 13, generating unit 13 generates broadcast information different content depending on the evaluation result of the evaluation unit 12. Broadcast information, the information content of the message notifying the notification device 20, and the contact information is a method of contact when the administrator of the notification device 20 to contact the subject, and when to notify the notification unit 20, evaluation includes information parts 12 are selected from the urgency of evaluating. That is, generator 13 for at least one of these information, generates the broadcast information different content depending on the evaluation result of the evaluation unit 12.

For example evaluation unit 12 has a first threshold value, and a second threshold value greater than the first threshold value. Evaluation unit 12, the supply of the latest resource acquisition unit 11 for the first consumption (consumed quantity of peacetime resources acquisition unit 11 acquires the target device 31) and the second consumption (target device 31 acquires the absolute value of the difference between the amount) is less than or equal to the first threshold value, outputs a first evaluation result to the generating unit 13. The evaluation unit 12. The absolute value of the difference between the first consumption amount and the second consumption, if the first and equal to or less than a predetermined second threshold value larger than the threshold value, and outputs a second evaluation result to the generating unit 13 . Evaluation unit 12, the absolute value of the difference between the first consumption amount and the second consumption is greater than the second threshold value, and outputs a third evaluation results to the generating unit 13.

For example generation unit 13 receives the first evaluation result from the evaluation unit 12 generates the notification information indicating that there is no abnormality in the watching target person. The broadcast information includes, for example, a predetermined time is notified to the notification device 20.

For example generation unit 13 receives the second evaluation result from the evaluation unit 12 generates the notification information indicating that there is an indication of abnormality in the watching target person. The broadcast information includes, for example, a predetermined time is notified to the notification device 20.

For example generation unit 13 receives the third evaluation result from the evaluation unit 12 generates the notification information indicating that there is an abnormality in the watching target person. The broadcast information includes, for example, generator 13 is notified to the notification device 20 in real when generating the broadcast information.

Broadcast information generating unit 13 generates, via the communication unit 14, it is transmitted to the notification device 20 registered in advance. Notification device 20 is, for example, the subject of the family of the watching is managing. For example, if you live is the parent of the elderly in housing 40, the notification device 20 is used in order to watch over the state of the parent is a child. The communication unit 14 is capable of operating the scheduled notification for notifying the notification information to the notification device 20 at a time defined every day, an immediate notification that notifies the notification information to the notification device 20 when the broadcast information has been determined. Time to perform scheduled notification, as described later, is set in advance to the communication unit 14. Moreover, timing of the immediate notification, the generation unit 13 according to the contents of the created broadcast information.

Here, an example screen of a case of using a smart phone to the notification device 20 in FIGS. 2-9. From watching notification device 10 to the alarm device 20, broadcast information is transmitted in a push manner.

Figure 2 is a screen when the evaluation unit 12 is a broadcast information when assessed that there is no abnormality in the subject, and transmitted to the smart phone communication unit 14 is a notification device 20 a scheduled notification. Illustrated example, with the reception of the broadcast information, the window A1 on the screen of the notification apparatus 20 shows a state where the pop-up. In the window A1, according to broadcast information, the message "generally we always use the street power" is displayed. In other words, it shows that there is a high possibility that there is no abnormality in the subject.

Figure 3 shows a screen example at the time of starting the application program (so-called "application") for causing a smart phone as the notification device 20. This operation is also, as in the case of the operation example shown in FIG. 2, receives the broadcast information, the message "generally we always use the street power" is displayed. Here, there are displayed a window C1 having a different shape from the window A1 shown in FIG. Further, in FIG. 3, arrow feather-shaped selection buttons B1 for selecting the subject's homes is displayed. When you slide your finger in the direction of the selection button B1 is switched the target housing 40. Note, housing 40 being selected is displayed in a region adjacent to the selected button B1 (in the illustrated example shows a "○○ house").

Incidentally, the administrator of the notification apparatus 20 that has received the notification information through the notification unit 20, as in the example of FIG. 2 or FIG. 3, if there is no problem to the subject need not contact the subject, even somewhat If an abnormality occurs in the subject, it is necessary to check the condition of the subject. The abnormality of the subject, because it is based on the transition of power consumption, but are not limited to the abnormality in the living condition of the subject has occurred, desirable to take a confirmation to contact the subject for confirmation It is. Here, since the notification device 20 uses a smart phone, telephone, equipped with a contact device 203, such as e-mail (see FIG. 1), the administrator to contact the subject using these contact devices 203 it is possible.

Therefore, evaluation unit 12, when evaluated as subjects not normal, for example, it is desirable to pop up a window C3 as shown in FIG. In the window C3 is, the message "long time, there is no change in the power value" is displayed. The window C3, the state the power consumption per unit time is equal to or less than the upper limit value or more or the lower limit, the display on the basis of the notification information generated by the generating unit 13 when continues beyond the time set It is. Further, this broadcast information includes contact information indicating how to contact the subject from the administrator of the notification device 20. That is, as shown in FIG. 4, in the window C3, as a method of communication, and the operation button B2 of the "call", is displayed and the operation button B3 of the "E-mail" is, any of the operation button B2, by pressing the B3, the screen corresponding to the telephone or e-mail is displayed. On the screen of here to the phone, if it is registered telephone number in advance, it is directed to the appropriate phone number, in the e-mail screen, if the e-mail address is registered in advance, the corresponding e-mail address is set program for e-mail is started in the state.

By the screen shown thus the contacting is displayed on the display device 201 of the notification device 20, the administrator of the notification apparatus 20 is contacted is promoted to subject. Therefore, when an abnormality in the living conditions of the subject is likely to have occurred, it will be given the opportunity to contact the subjects for administrators of notification device 20, check without neglected living conditions of the subject It will be.

At the annual notification, an example of the window C1 ~ C3 that pops up on the screen of the display device 201 in the broadcast apparatus 20 shown in FIG. 5 (a) ~ (c), in the immediate notification, FIG examples of window C4 that pops up 5 It is shown in (d). Example of FIG. 5 (a) is the same as in the example shown in FIG. 3, an example of FIG. 5 (c) is similar to the example shown in FIG.

Example of FIG. 5 (b), the evaluation result of the evaluation unit 12, but the subject is an evaluation result that is not normal, when compared to the example of FIG. 5 (c), the shows low urgency state . In other words, since the amount of power consumption per unit time is changing, it is recognized that the subject is performing the life behavior, less power consumption when compared to normal times, behavior amount of the subject than peacetime less, for example, shows a possible states may have stagnated at.
