What are silent alert systems?
Silent alert aids include smoke alarms, door bells and telephone monitors. Instead of sounding standard alarms they use vibrations, lights and loud alarms to alert anyone who is blind, deaf, or hard of hearing. The pendant alarm and movement monitor are silent alert systems that discreetly contact carers when the pendant is pressed or movement is detected on the monitor.
What are the benefits of silent alert systems?
Silent alert systems can increase safety and help with independence in your home. With these alert systems, you can feel confident that you won’t miss any vital alarms or calls and that your carers will be alerted if you need assistance.
What different silent alert systems do you offer?
The silent alert systems we offer connect to a pager or the SignWave receiver, which features vibration, light and loud alarm settings. Therefore, the alarms can be felt and seen, as well as heard, so they can alert people with a range of different sensory requirements.
Carbon monoxide – we offer a wireless carbon monoxide alarm that works with the pager or SignWave system to alert you if traces of carbon monoxide are detected.
Doorbell – the doorbell features a motion detector and push button that alerts the pager or SignWave receiver when someone is at the door.
Telephone monitor – the telephone monitor fits into the wall and alerts the pager and receiver to any calls, messages or faxes.
Silent alert kits – we offer two smoke alarm kits which both include a smoke alarm and pillow shaker. One kit also includes a pager and the other a SignWave receiver. A telephone, doorbell and smoke alarm kit is also available with a pillow shaker and pager alert.
Pendant – the pendant alarm enables you to have accessible contact with your carers, whenever you need it. Simply press the button to alert your carers that you need assistance.
Movement monitor – we offer a movement alarm that sends an alert when motion is detected. It is ideal to detect wandering and can also be set to alert carers if you don’t return to bed or a room within a certain amount of time.
What should I consider when choosing a silent alert system?
Style – make sure you consider the different styles of silent alert systems to ensure they are suitable for you. We have alarms for people living with different sensory impairments as well as discreet alerts to notify carers when you require assistance.
