Bellman Visit Range: Keeping You in the Loop

20 November 2015

They say home is where the heart is, and we’re inclined to agree. Is there anything better than cooking some food, turning on the TV and relaxing with loved ones in your own space? Your home is your hub, or rather your hive: a centre of activity from which we constantly buzz to and from, working together to make it home sweet home. 

That’s why it’s so important for all you busy bees to feel safe and secure in your hive. As you get older, you may find that your hearing isn’t quite as sharp as it once was. In fact, 1 in 6 people in the UK suffer from some form of hearing loss, affecting more than 70% of over 70-year-olds. This can make it really difficult to keep tabs on the activity in and around your household, something not only frustrating but also unsafe. 

Hear to Help

Thankfully, the clever clogs at Bellman & Symfon created a perfect solution, tailoring their range of advanced devices to meet a variety of your needs in the home. 

Founded in 1989, the company named themselves after Carl-Michael Bellman, the 17th century composer who wrote music tones for the Swedish king. Named “the master improviser” by King Gustav III, you’ll find the modern Bellman’s work to be as masterful as its namesake. 

Reminiscent of the Apple product prototypes of the 80s, Bellman’s first model, a device to alert you when the phone rings, was praised for its functionality but scrapped for being too “ugly”. Ouch. After some tweaking and redrafting a new design was formed, and Bellman’s ingenuity has taken them through the past quarter of a century to the present day, where its products are ready to be brought to you.  

Bell-mans and Whistles

So, what does the Bellman Visit range actually do? Two words for you: transmitters and receivers. Sound a bit technical? Well fear not, because it’s actually really simple. 

The idea is that various transmitters can be placed around your home, depending on what you need them for. So you could set one up to be triggered by the ringing of your doorbell, or the crying of your baby, or the sounding of your smoke alarm. The transmitter will be alerted of the stimulus and will use radio signals to relay this information to you via a receiver. Still with us?

There are an assortment of different receivers available in the range, with varying degrees of portability. One great example is the Bellman Visit Pager Receiver: a handy, compact device which attaches to your belt. It will emit discreet vibrations and lights to alert you of activity within your home, so you will never find yourself missing anything important due to hearing loss again!

So whether you need a hand knowing when to answer the door or phone, or something more urgent like if your smoke alarm is sounding, your hearing loss doesn’t have to hold you back at home.
