Holding onto our independence as we grow older is important. But we face different challenges as we age and there is a difference between being independent and being alone. We want to know that if we need help, it will come.
The Bosch Carephone 62 helps provide this reassurance. By connecting to a twenty-four hour monitored call centre, help can be given at any time of day by just triggering an alarm. The Bosch Fall Detector Watch is an ideal sensor to match with the Carephone 62 and alert someone to a fall.
For your convenience, the Bosch Carephone 62 and Fall Detector Watch is now available as a kit to ensure you have everything you need to retain your independence.
Features of the Bosch Carephone 62
The Carephone 62 is an economical carephone with the ability to run from analog, IP or GSM telephony technology. Programmed through the use of SD card, there are no installation complications when setting up the phone.
The alarm can be triggered from either the carephone or the watch. This is then transmitted to a staffed centre, where both the person and the alarm type can be quickly identified. The two-way voice communication allows the situation to be assessed and the appropriate action taken.
Features of the Fall Detector Watch
Designed for carephones such as the Carephone 62, the watch has two different modes: help and fall. While help is manually triggered by pressing by the button, the fall mode is triggered when a period of inactivity is detected after a significant impact. If the watch is then moved, the alarm is cancelled, helping to reduce false alarms.
Operated by a 3V lithium battery, the alarm is both waterproof and hypoallergenic to ensure maximum comfort for everyday wear.
Can I Use the Watch in the Garden or Outside?
The Fall Detector Watch is primarily designed for indoor use, but with a line-of-sight range of 150m, it's suitable for use all over your property. Range will be negatively affected based on how many walls and other surfaces the signal must pass through, but the range should be suitable for use in the garden of the vast majority of properties.
