What are door entry aids, key safes and alarms?

Door entry aids, key safes and alarms are safety and alert devices that help to keep your home secure.

What are the benefits of door entry aids, key safes and alarms?

These home safety devices help maintain an accessible and secure environment for older people or those with a disability who are living independently.

What different door entry aids, key safes and alarms do you offer?

Intercoms – intercoms enable you to see who is at the door and talk to them before you open it. They improve your security as you can decide who to open the door to. We provide a cordless phone intercom and a video intercom which can also be used to see who is at the door.

Alarms – we offer a wall mounted alarm that can be installed in different areas of your home. The alarm sounds when the pull cord is disconnected and it also features a flashing light to indicate when the alarm is on – ideal if you have a hearing impairment. The portable key ring alarms are activated by a pull ring and the wrist alarm is activated by a button. These alarms offer easy ways to call for help, whether you are at home or out and about.

Doorbells – we provide doorbells and receivers especially for anyone living with a sensory impairment. Doorbells with extra loud alarms and flashing lights are ideal if you are hard of hearing and the receiver with vibrating pager can be used to alert those who are deaf or blind. These aids ensure that you are alerted to the door, even if you cannot hear regular doorbells.

Key safes – key safes offer a secure way to store house keys. With a code, family or carers can open the key safe and retrieve the keys to let themselves in.

What should I consider when choosing a door entry aid, key safe or alarm?

Style – consider which style of home safety aid would be most appropriate for you. If you have frequent visitors or limited mobility that makes it difficult to get to the front door, you may consider a key safe. However, if you want to let guests in yourself, a doorbell or intercom may be more appropriate for you.

Size and fitting – remember to check the fittings of our safety aids to ensure that they can fit correctly onto your wall. This is vital to make sure that these aids can be used correctly and securely.
