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 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 in your home as well as the opening of a door or window. The kit comes with three parts:
- Signwave receiver
- Smoke alarm
- Magnetic door monitor
Components of the Smoke and Magnetic Door 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 its included charging station ensures that it won't run out of juice when you need it.
The accompanying Smoke Alarm wirelessly connects to the Signwave and alerts you to the presence of smoke in the air. By triggering to the Signwave, you have an added chance of being aware of the alarm – especially useful for larger homes or people who have trouble hearing.
Magnetic Door Monitor
The magnetic door monitor easily fits on to any door or window frame and alerts the Signwave if the door or window is opened. This makes it easy to reduce wandering by helping to ensure that people don't become a danger to themselves.

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.
