What are movement monitors?
Movement monitors are sensor devices that play alerts or alarms when they detect motion.
What are the benefits of movement monitors?
These monitors enable carers to keep informed about your movements, even if they are in another room, so they can quickly respond if they think your movements are unsafe.
Movement monitors can help with home safety, by alerting you to someone at the door or reminding you of important tasks, such as locking the door.
What different movement monitors do you offer?
Safety beam – we offer an invisible infrared safety beam that sounds an alarm when motion is detected. The safety beam is ideal to detect wandering through doorways or over thresholds and can be used to alert you and your carers.
Window and door alarm – this magnetic alarm attaches to your doors or windows and activates when they are opened. The alarm informs carers or your family that you have left a room or the house.
Motion detector with memo – we also offer a motion detector that plays a pre-recorded message when it detects movement. You can record your own message, to help you remember tasks when you leave the house, such as a reminder to pick up your keys or lock the door.
What should I consider when choosing a movement monitor?
Consider which area of the home you will want to use the monitor, so you can choose a style that is suitable.
