get to know ecg

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.


When SameDay Security, Inc. was founded, we knew two things. One, there was an enormous market need and two, no one else in the industry had perfected health and safety monitoring. Intrigued by the challenge and backed by the country’s largest monitoring company, Electronic Caregiver, pocketMD and Addison Care were created to better people’s lives.

We’re a spin-off of a national company offering national in-home health monitoring since 1999. Our ECG division began working specifically with senior service and health industry professionals in 2009. There were four employees working out of the CEO’s dining room. Shortly after 12 employees moved into a downtown office. We launched our first personal emergency response system and then the PERS 4200.

As the company grew, the 30 employees ended up moving into a new building in March 2017 that offered more space and views from the 10th story offices. Shortly after, we ended up launching the ECG Premier system, where we started off strong and then continued to set and break monthly sales records. We added the ECG Logo to the side of the building, showing off our brand to the city and the country.

With technology developing at a rapid pace through our 60+ person Innovation team, we’ve expanded operations from the 10th to the 9th floor of the ECG Tower. We’ve partnered with Amazon, as we have been developing technology on AWS platforms. In addition, we are working with Intel in our continual development of our artificial intelligence-based virtual caregiver -Addison.

Anthony Dohrmann is the Founder and CEO of SameDay Security and the visionary behind Addison. “The aging population commonly lives with comorbidities (multiple chronic diseases). Approximately 100M Americans are living with a chronic illness; managing diabetes, respiratory disease, heart disease or other illnesses require follow through and accurate scheduling. There is a lot of pressure for patients and families and adherence to treatment regimens are difficult to manage at home. Patients are often confused about their care instructions and non-adherence with care plans and medications schedules is estimated to cause 50% of all treatment failures.”

Only 3% of the US population can afford live caregiving,” Dohrmann said. “We are bringing affordable, effective care alternatives to the world through Addison. Working with Home Care Providers and Hospitals across America, we will provide service and product line extensions to serve market demand, while delivering alternatives individuals and families can afford. Our goal is to cut costs, improve care and extend functional independence.”
