Not defined
This is a non-union project
We want standard American accent voices, but are also trying to sell the client on a 'continental' accent. An example of this accent might be a South Asian that has a sort of Oxford-educated type English accent. It's fine if the accent is non-country specific and not too strong. It's important for it NOT to be over-the-top or fake.

Script Details

Our world is aging.
Advances in science and medicine mean we are living longer, healthier lives.
It also means that there will be more and more of us who’ll outlive our partners, friends, and family. An older population, healthy enough to remain alone in their homes, but facing an everyday risk of accidents, alzheimers, and social isolation.
How do we protect those grandmothers, fathers, siblings, and friends, while letting them keep the comfort of their lives, their daily routine?
What if the solution lay in the routine itself?
If the simple objects we interacted with every day were given sensors, real time GPS tracking and wifi, each step of that routine could be combined to form a picture of a life being lived, in real time.
And… if we had that picture, we could know, within moments, if something wasn’t right.
A signal could be sent.
And help, or simply a familiar face, could arrive.
We think of the Internet of things as a system to make our lives easier, what if it could also create a higher quality of life for those in need?
Our homes have always provided shelter, comfort, and routine… now they can provide data.
Data that can be put into action to save a life or simply allow a life be lived on its own terms.
We all find comfort in our routine, now we can find safety as well.
