Telecare helps to manage risk and support independence by means of unobtrusive wireless sensors placed around the home which detect possible problems such as smoke, gas, flood or a person falling.
Discrete wireless sensors throughout your home can automatically raise a local, audible alarm, as well as alerting a carer, key holder or the monitoring centre as appropriate.
Carbon monoxide alarm
Carbon monoxide is an odourless and colourless gas which is sometimes produced in fires and boilers and can be fatal. Our carbon monoxide alarms tell us when there are dangerous levels in your home.
These provide early warnings of potential flood situations, such as the bath overflowing. The sensor can be placed under the sink or in the bathroom next to the toilet or under the bath.
Extreme temperature sensor
Detects both extreme heat and cold. It can tell us if there is a fire in your house or if your house is too cold, for example because the boiler is broken, bad weather or that the door has been left open.
Sound & flashing beacon
Provides audio and visual confirmation of an alert call, providing additional reassurance for people with hearing impairments.
These sensors are worn on a cord around your neck or wrist and automatically trigger an alert to our monitoring centre if they detect you’ve fallen over.
Reminds you by means of an alarm and flashing light when to take your medication. It will make the correct dose available at the correct time of day or night, whilst keeping secure all other pills.
Bogus caller button
Fixed near the door, the bogus caller button will provide reassurance in the event of an unexpected caller.
Peephole viewers – Ideal for vulnerable or sight impaired people to safely open the door without having to peep through a tiny eyeglass fitted in to the door.
Bed occupancy sensor
Generates an alert if you have got out of your chair/bed and not returned after a specified period of time.
Placed underneath the mattress for monitoring tonic-clonic seizures. Upon detection of such a situation, an alert will be raised to the contact centre or carer.
