Device: Blood Pressure Monitor (Arms 1 and 2)
This device is used at home to measure blood pressure and pulse rate.
Other: Telephone Surveys
On days 1, 3, and 6 of each 5-day sensor usage period, study personnel will call participants to ascertain functionality, acceptability, and overall satisfaction regarding use of sensing devices.
Other: Home Visit
For the first 10 patients enrolled in the trial, a home visit to be made on day 2, to ascertain if there were any problems related to home set-up.
Device: Home Health Hub and Modem (All study groups)
These devices collect data from other home devices, and send this data (over the internet) to study researchers.
Device: Heat Rate Monitor (Arm 1)
