When caring for a loved one, it is vital that you know everything that is going on in your home so that you can best act to help them whenever they need it. Looking after someone with a habit of wandering can be very difficult, and it can lead to more standard household dangers being ignored.
The Care Call Smoke, Carbon Monoxide and Magnetic Door Alarm System with Signwave is a complete kit that enables you to be quickly and efficiently alerted to the presence of smoke and/or CO in your home, as well as to the opening of a door or window. The kit comes with four parts, including:
- Smoke alarm
- Carbon monoxide alarm
- Magnetic door monitor
Features of the Kit
The Signwave is designed to be a great base station for alerts for your home. A different monitor can be assigned to each number, and when one is triggered the Signwave uses loud sound and a strobing light to alert you. It's ideal if you spend most of your time in a single room. The Signwave can easily be moved from room to room, and it's included charging station ensures that it won't run out of juice when you need it.
Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms
The accompanying Smoke Alarm wirelessly connects to the Signwave to alert you to the presence of smoke, and the CO alarm monitors the levels of CO in your home and alerts the Signwave if those levels become dangerous.
Magnetic Door Alarm
The magnetic door alarm is easily fixed to a door or window frame; it alerts you if the two components are separated more than a certain distance, helping you control wandering. The magnetic alarm can be used in multiple locations: bedroom doors, windows, fridge doors, shed doors – if you're worried about the opening of anything, this alarm is the solution.

Ionisation vs. Optical Smoke Alarms
The Care Call Smoke Alarms are available in two types:
Ionisation Smoke Alarms detect invisible smoke and early stage fires, this makes them ideal for upper floors and bedrooms but can prove too sensitive for single-level dwellings or placement in or near kitchens.
Optical Smoke Alarms detect larger particles of smoke and are less sensitive to cooking fumes, making them idea for downstairs placement and single-level dwellings.
For multi-level houses, it is recommended that an Ionisation Alarm is placed on the upper levels and an Optical Alarm placed on the kitchen level.
