<Mimamori Hotline Service>
As a rising percentage of the population enters the “senior citizen” age-group, Zojirushi is offering services that support the elderly and their families. To provide the “Mimamori” (Watch Over You) Hotline Service, Zojirushi has installed a wireless telecommunication device in its electric teapots designed for senior citizens. When the pot is being used, the device sends an e-mail to a registered address, such as a guardian, via the Internet. This service makes it possible to keep up with the activities of the elderly without intruding on their lives.
