Simple to use

to keep in touch with loved ones

The device which provides company for senior citizens is simple to use and facilitates family contacts

Nonny originates from the personal experience of Michele Vaccaro, who realized that the devices and applications available were limited and difficult to use for a senior, because they required a series of complicated procedures for a person having little confidence with technology and current market tools.

 A video communication device developed after much study into the needs of elderly people, to help seniors live better at an age when they can feel socially isolated and when solitude and depression can threaten their health.
Nonny brings multiple benefits to the general wellbeing of seniors, keeping their minds active and enabling contacts with friends and family.

The strength of Nonny is encapsulated in the elimination of the superfluous: no app, no numbers or special keys, no small screens or passwords. Just a simple digital frame to touch in order to start a video call.

To help the senior user, Nonny never turns itself off:  the device never goes into stand-by and the photos of loved ones are always visible.  Nonny can also reply to calls totally automatically. 

Nonny is the new frontier in communications for seniors, offering an innovative concept of keeping contact and spending time together with the family. A device which enables seniors to be technologically autonomous and free to make a call simply by touching a photo. 

SIMPLE AND IMMEDIATE

Nonny is a revolutionary product because it offers seniors and those who are more fragile the possibility of staying in contact with their family, in a simple and intuitive way.  Thanks to its essential interface, all you need is to touch the photo of your contacts configured on the device to start a video call, without having to use any special buttons, keyboards or other complicated interfaces.

THE PHONE THAT DIDN’T EXIST UNTIL NOW

This video phone is also designed for the peace of mind of the younger members of the family: Nonny advises them through the app if the battery level is low or if the number of minutes still available goes below a certain level. To help senior users, Nonny has no stand-by function and is always ready for use: the photos of loved ones are always visible. For seniors who are not able to reply to calls themselves, Nonny can help by activating the automatic video call function.

THE PERFECT GIFT

It is always a problem to find a gift for a birthday, Christmas, Easter or another special occasion. Nonny is a useful device, marrying technology and practicality and is perfect to give to all seniors with whom communication at a distance is a must. Nonny will change the way the whole family communicates, making contacts feel closer.

NOT JUST AN APP, NOR JUST A TABLET

Aimed at reducing the difficulties seniors may have with technology to a minimum, Nonny carries out one sole task: that of offering seniors a richer social life, thanks to more visual contact and frequent sharing in family activities. The user will not risk getting lost among apps, configurations and menus because Nonny has an essential, intuitive interface, designed to be used extremely easily. The screen will show the photos of loved ones – just a touch on one of them is needed to start a video conversation.

A SAFE FAMILY NETWORK

Nonny guarantees absolute safety and privacy because it creates a private connection solely between those selected (family members, friends and acquaintances).  There is no space for intruders nor external risks, but only safety and privacy.

For its video communication, Nonny does not use free open-source services available on the internet, but relies on high level professional services which guarantee above all a higher level of privacy apart from providing  excellent communication quality and solidity.

A TOTALLY ITALIAN IDEA

Nonny originated from personal experience – seeing the difficulties seniors can have with motor functions and familiarity with technology. For these seniors, access to and use of generic chat applications and the most widespread videocommunication tools were impractical. According to a survey carried out by Nielsen, the video call tools on offer are too complicated, to the point of needing a third party to activate them (39% of the senior interviewees and 27% of the children/grandchildren).

500 MINUTES OF VIDEO-CALLS INCLUDED!

When you buy Nonny, communications can start right away:  in fact the device contains 500 preloaded minutes of calls already included in the price!

HOW LONG WILL 500 MINUTES OF VIDEO-CALLS LAST?

This obviously depends on how much the device is used, but at present the average usage of Nonny is 5 minutes a day.  At this rate, 500 minutes will last you 100 days – more than 3 months!

WHAT DO I DO WHEN I HAVE USED UP THE 500 MINUTES?

Nonny will automatically alert all the contacts who are configured as “administrators” that the minutes are running out, thus giving ample time to purchase more minutes. This can be done in the BUY section of the website. When purchasing additional minutes, the unique identity code of the device must be entered to allow minutes to be registered.

WHERE DO I FIND THE UNIQUE NONNY IDENTITY CODE (NONNY ID)?

All the information regarding the device is easily accessible by touching the Nonny logo at the top centre of the main screen – the information window will then appear.

HOW MUCH DO THE MINUTES OF CONVERSATION COST? WHERE CAN I BUY THEM?

Packages of 250, 500 and 1,000 minutes are available.  The prices are detailed in the BUY section. Once you have purchased them, the minutes never expire, but remain available for when you need them.

HOW ARE THE MINUTES USED UP?

The minutes are used through the video-calls, incoming and outgoing, made from a Nonny device to a client App (the application loaded on Android or iOS). If calls are made from one Nonny to another, the minutes will be deducted from the caller’s device.

IS NONNY A PHONE?

No.  Nonny is a new device which uses data links to the internet to communicate.  There is thus no need to rely on a telephone line connection, nor to memorise telephone numbers which can be difficult to remember.  Calls to land line telephones cannot be made.

Nonny is absolutely ready-to-use because you just have to touch the photo of the person you want to call to  start the video-call, thanks to the link with the Nonny mobile app which makes the connection.

WHAT ARE THE BEST CONDITIONS FOR USE?

Nonny requires a good internet connection, through WiFi or 4G data SIM (not included).  To use the App, we suggest that the video-call be made from a smartphone using headphones and landscape visual screen.

WHAT NEW DEVELOPMENTS ARE ON THEIR WAY?

Improvements are always in the pipeline. Nonny owners will automatically receive all updates free of charge.  As far as the Android and iOS Apps are concerned, the updates will be notified and must be downloaded, as normal, from Google Play and Apple Store respectively.

Have a look at the release notes here: Release-Notes

WHAT ARE THE MINIMUM OPERATING SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS NEEDED FOR THE NONNY APPLICATION?

The Nonny client App requires at least version 5.0 (Lollipop) for Android smartphones and at least version 11.0 iOS for Apple devices.

WHY DO WE HAVE TO PAY FOR THE MINUTES OF CONVERSATION?

In order to provide quality service, together with ensuring stability and safety, Nonny does not use free open-source services. 

Nonny relies on videocommunication infrastructures at enterprise level which operate on a global scale, and which are protected by end-to-end communication coding, guaranteeing stability and performance.

These infrastructures charge by the minute, albeit at a very low cost.

Nonny has chosen the path of quality and safety, because we think that a minimum cost is worth ensuring a high quality service.
