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. Monitoring the essentials is vital to ensuring that those under your care are best looked after, and it's important that they don't become a danger to themselves by moving around when they shouldn't.
The Care Call Smoke, Carbon Monoxide and PIR Movement 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 enabling you to ensure that those under your care don't move about without help and injure themselves. The kit comes with four parts:
- Smoke alarm
- Carbon monoxide alarm
- PIR movement monitor
Components of the care Call 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.
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. By connecting to your Signwave receiver, you can be sure that you have the best chance of being aware of your alarm.
PIR Movement Monitor
The PIR movement monitor will alert the Signwave when it picks up movement, making it ideal for the detection of wandering. Unlike pressure mats, which are also used to detect movement, PIR detectors do not cause a trip hazard to elderly or unstable users while providing the same high level of accuracy.

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.
