How can I make video calls from my TV?

Kraydel’s plug and play hub makes video calls from your TV easy. Especially for seniors.

Video calls are one of the most powerful ways to communicate with loved ones.

But in the recent “In Real Life” study, researchers found that amongst seniors aged 75 and over, 86% were frustrated with technology and 95% feel they missed out on video calls.

That’s why the team at Kraydel worked with a living lab of seniors to design the Kraydel hub. We wanted anyone old or young, in good health or frail, to be able to use our hub in just seconds. With their design feedback our plug and play device can be set up in just two minutes. All you need is wifi, a plug socket and an HDMI slot on your TV.

We wanted a simple customer experience. So we built a light but easy to hold remote control with just three large buttons. You won’t need a PHD in rocket science to use it.  TV video calls with Kraydel are now just a click away.

Inbound and outbound video calls from your TV


Our TV-takeover design means there’s no need to change between channels – your TV will automatically tell you when there’s an incoming call. You can accept or decline the video call with a single click of a button.

If you want to make a call, it’s a simple as holding down a button for 5 seconds and then selecting which loved one, friend, carer or service you’d like to TV video call. You can make calls to another Kraydel hub, to a mobile phone or even a computer or tablet. All the receiver needs to do is to download our Android or iPhone app or login via their browser.

You can call other connected hubs – meaning you can can make sofa-to-sofa calls from the comfort of your favourite chair. No more small mobile touch screens. Now you can enjoy video calls through the biggest, brightest and highest definition screen in the home – your TV

You also have complete control over who can call you. Your privacy is completely protected. We know new technology can be daunting. That’s why the Kraydel hub transforms your current TV – not just a smart TV – in to a two way TV video calling platform. There’s no need to learn how to use a new technology. It’s your TV; in the comfort of your own home.

A TV video call with your loved ones is now just a click away.
