Telecare sensors and monitors are linked to a community alarm and provide additional support and assistance for individuals to live independently at home with added peace of mind.
These sensors work to help keep the home safe. They include
These sensors automatically alert our operators if there is a fire in the home.
Tell us if there is a flood in the home for example if taps are left on accidentally.
Gas and carbon monoxide detectors
Automatically alert us if there are any leaks.
Bogus caller alert
Contact us with the simple press of a button if someone suspicious is at the door.
These sensors aim to assist with independent living. They include:
Worn on the wrist, belt or around the neck, they alert us when someone falls, without any need to activate the alarm.
The dispenser gives access to the right number of pills at the right time and will alert us if they are not taken to make managing medication simple and reduce mistakes.
Bed and chair sensors
These sensors alert us if someone leaves their chair or bed and do not return within a specified time, or if they have not gone to bed by a certain time.
Alert us when there has been no movement in the home for a certain time, or if intruders are detected.
Particularly useful for people prone to walking off, these can alert us when the front door has been opened, or not closed after a period of time.
Support for carers
For those that care for someone at home we can provide a device which alerts them rather than the Monitoring Centre in the first instance. We can link certain Telecare sensors to these such as bed, chair and door sensors allowing an immediate response to support a loved one.
What do they cost?
Telecare sensors are available for an additional weekly charge depending on the type of device required. You are required to have a community alarm which costs £4.90 per week. Our staff will discuss the overall pricing before signing up.
