Finding the Right Care Call Carbon Monoxide Pager Kit for You
Thursday, 28 January 2016 | John
Ensuring that your air is free of carbon monoxide (CO) is incredibly important in ensuring the safety of those under your care – the Care Call Carbon Monoxide Alarm is a great sensor to base your Care Call Pager kit around.
Not sure you want to base your kit around detecting CO? Head to the start of our Care Call Kit Guide to find your perfect kit.
Step Three: Choosing Additional Sensors
Now that you know your priority is detecting CO, it’s time to choose which additional sensors you want in your kit. If you’re just looking for a Care Call Pager kit to detect CO, this is the kit for you:
You can also get this kit with a Vibrating Pillow Pad, which you can connect to the pager’s charger and will vibrate your pillow and wake you up if the CO alarm detects high levels of carbon monoxide.
Magnetic Door Monitor
The Care Call Carbon Monoxide Pager Kit is also available with a Magnetic Door Monitor:
The Care Call Magnetic Door Monitor attaches to a door or window frame and will alert the pager if the door or window is opened. This gives you a great level of versatility in monitoring those under your care – it can be used to ensure that people don’t wander from their rooms, and can also be used to ensure that people don’t go into areas of the home they shouldn’t such as certain rooms or cupboards.
PIR Movement Monitor
Or, if you want to detect movement in a different way, the Care Call Carbon Monoxide Pager kit is also available with a PIR Movement Monitor.
The Care Call PIR Movement Monitor uses infrared to detect movement and alerts the pager when it does. This is ideal for use as a bed leaving monitor where a carpet or bed mat is not suitable due to a tripping or tangling risk. This enables you to safely reduce the risk of bed falls by letting you quickly come to the aid of someone getting out of bed before they have a fall.
Alternatively, the Carbon Monoxide Pager kit is also available with a Smoke Alarm.
The Care Call Smoke Alarm will detect the presence of smoke and alert the pager immediately so you can quickly act for the safety of those under your care. The smoke alarm is available in two different versions – Ionisation and Optical.
The ionisation smoke alarm uses radiation to detect smoke, which makes it incredibly sensitive. This is ideal for use on floors without kitchens, where even the smallest amount of smoke is cause for concern. Optical smoke alarms use light to detect smoke, and aren’t as sensitive as Ionisation alarms. This makes them ideal for use near kitchens, where small amounts of smoke are normal but larger concentrations aren’t.
You can also get the Care Call Carbon Monoxide Pager kit with a Smoke Alarm and Magnetic Door Monitor, or with a Smoke Alarm and PIR Movement Monitor:
Panic Alarm Transmitter
The Care Call Carbon Monoxide Pager kit is also available with a Smoke Alarm and Key Fob Transmitter:
The Care Call Key Fob Transmitter is an ideal addition to any kit. It can be worn around the neck of those under your care (with an easy-break catch to reduce risk of strangulation) and they can press the button on the front whenever they need help.
