What different door entry products, key safes and alarms do you offer?
Personal alarms – we offer multiple personal alarms that can be attached to your key ring or worn on your wrist. They have buttons or cords that activate an alarm to alert someone that you need help. We also offer pull cord alarms that can be installed in your home.
Key safes – key safes fit to walls outside your front or back door, providing a safe place to leave keys. Using a code, carers or family members can access the keys to your home easily and securely.
Intercoms – intercoms allow you to communicate with visitors before letting them in. This enables you to choose who you answer the door to and increases your security. We offer an intercom that connects to a cordless phone, as well as a video intercom which lets you see who is at the door.
Doorbells – if you have an auditory impairment you may have difficulty hearing regular alarms. We supply a range of door bells with vibrations, lights or extra loud alarms to cater for many different impairments and ensure that you are alerted to the door.
What should I consider when choosing a door entry product, key safe or alarm?
Style – consider what style of safety aids would be most suitable for you. If you have frequent visitors or carers, you might consider key safes so you don’t need to repeatedly open the door. If you want to let your visitors in, an intercom or doorbell may be better suited to you.
