Medpage Door and Window Contact Sensor Wander Alarm
Some vulnerable patients, particularly those with dementia and similar conditions impacting the memory, are prone to wandering, a habit that can make effective care and monitoring difficult. The
Medpage Door and Window Contact Sensor Wander Alarm is an easy-to-use alarm system which helps carers to better monitor their patients, and prevent them from leaving care settings unattended. Suitable for doors, windows, cupboards, and similar surfaces, this contact sensor alarm can be either be used alone or as part of a multi-alarm system covering a wider area. What's Included? 1 x Door Alarm Transmitter 1 x Proximity Magnet 2 x AAA Batteries 1 x Pack of Screw Fixings and Velcro Dots Please Note : This alarm system requires a Medpage Digital Pager to function. The digital pager can be purchased separately, or as part of a bundle-kit which includes this alarm system and the pager. Who Can Use This Home Care Alarm?
The Medpage door alarm system is ideal for use in care homes, or for domestic care scenarios. It is particularly useful for caring for and monitoring vulnerable patients who may be prone to wandering, including dementia patients.
This contact sensor can be used in doorways, windows, cupboards, and similar surfaces. While designed to fit most doorways, the alarm system may not be suitable for those with little room around the frame. In this case, we would recommend an alternative such as the
PIR Motion Detector. Which Sensor Should I Use With This Alarm Transmitter?
The Medpage MPPL Digital Pager is essential for proper functioning of this alarm system. As the sensor, any alerts transmitted by the door alarm will be sent to the connected
pager (sold separately). Each pager is capable of connecting to up to eight sensors, or alarms, and each alarm can be connected to an unlimited number of pagers for use in environments where there are multiple carers.
If you already have a Medpage pager (including older models), you can connect it to this alarm system without needing to purchase a new sensor.
Can I Create A Multi-Alarm System?
This door and window alarm is suitable for solo use, but can also be utilised as part of a more complex alarm system. You can connect up to eight door and window alarms to one pager, allowing you to set up an alert system that covers a wider area of your domestic care setting.
