Switch Star

In 2004, John O’ Callaghan founded Acsess Health with a mission to revolutionise technology within healthcare industries, offering vital support and assistance to their personnel and customers. Drawing from two decades of experience in technology enhancement, John was compelled to act after receiving a plea from Tony Randello, CEO of AVEO, regarding a string of fires in Australia caused by lithium-ion battery overcharging. He swiftly devised a solution with input from Tony. 

Within weeks, they conceptualised and produced the Switch Star, a groundbreaking power outlet that automatically shuts off after 8 hours, eliminating the risk of overcharging. Unlike its counterparts, this innovation requires no programming, apps, or Wi-Fi connectivity – it is ready to use once installed by a certified electrician.

Acsess Health remains at the forefront of technological advancement in aged care and retirement sectors, particularly in telecommunications and personal alarm systems, and continues to pave the way for safety and efficiency for such critical situations that occur within our industries.
