How it Works

How it Works

CheckinBee is the daily check-in service for people living alone. CheckinBee checks in with you every day to confirm you’re okay and, if there is no response, alerts your emergency contacts so you can quickly get help (and your pets will be taken care of too).

Set up account and add your loved one

Your “loved one” is the individual who will be checking in each day. They will only need a cell phone to check-in.

Add additional emergency contacts (optional)

You will automatically be added to your loved one’s emergency contacts (their “care circle”). You can add additional care circle members who will also be notified if your loved one misses a check-in.

Choose a check-in time

This is the time that your loved one must check-in by each day. It can be any time between 5am – 11pm and can be changed at any time.

We send a check-in message to your loved one

1 hour before the check-in time, your loved one will receive a text message to their phone asking them to check in for the day. We will also send a reminder message 20 minutes before their check-in time if they still haven’t checked in.

They reply to the message to check in

Your loved one replies to the text message with ‘yes’ or ‘okay’ to check in for the day. They will receive a confirmation text that they have successfully checked in.

What if they don't check in?

If your loved one doesn’t check in for the day, we will alert the care circle 10 minutes after the check-in time. Each care circle member will receive a text message informing them that the loved one missed their check-in and to please check on them.

If one of the care circle members successfully gets in touch with the loved one, they can check in on their behalf by responding to the message with ‘check in’. This will inform the other care circle members that all is well.
