Everyday tasks such as hearing the doorbell may be simple to you and me. But it is just one of the issues that those who are hard of hearing struggle with. From hearing the doorbell or phone ring to monitoring a crying child, there are many day-to-day activities that prove to be strenuous for those who are hard of hearing. Even more dangerous is not being able to hear the smoke alarm to keep your loved ones safe.
Bellman have developed a range of products to help combat these issues. With door transmitters and baby monitors, telephone transmitters and smoke alarm detectors, the range is there to help make life easier for those who are hard of hearing. All these transmitters connect to a Bellman receiver of your choice.
To help make this process simpler, the products and receivers are now available as a kit.
What is in the kit?
This particular kit consists of the following items:
All of these transmitters connect with the Bellman receivers. There are a range of receivers available to best suit your individual needs and preferences.
The range consists of:
- Pager Receiver: compact pager, ideal for putting in your pocket. Vibration and light patterns, with corresponding images for different alarms.
- Portable Receiver: Flashing lights and individual sounds to identify between the different transmitters.
- Audio Receiver: Suitable for use with hearing aids through a loop amplifier
- Flash Receiver: Flashing lights indicates an alarm is going off
- Portable Flash Receiver: Same as above, but operates off batteries instead of the mains power
- Wrist Receiver: Different icons for different alarms, but can be worn around the wrist.
features of the transmitters
All of the transmitters are designed for those who are hard of hearing and have a range of up to 200m.
The transmitters all use radio signals to send an alert to the receiver when their respective alarms are triggered. The sensitivity can be adjusted to ensure there are no false alarms and the radio key ensures that they work even when other transmitters are in the vicinity. If the transmitters require batteries, they provide long lasting power for at least a year (varies on the individual transmitters and their usage).
The different between the push button transmitter and door transmitter is that one operates as the doorbell (and can therefore function as a panic alarm as well) while the door transmitter picks up the sound of your pre-existing doorbell and sends a signal once this has been detected.
The ionisation smoke alarm detects both heat and smoke, detecting a fire quickly and triggering the alarm, helping to protect you and your family.
