Finding the Right Care Call Signwave Carbon Monoxide Kit for You
27 January 2016 | John
Carbon monoxide (or CO, to give it its chemical symbol) is an odourless gas that can be deadly. Causing symptoms much like those of a regular cold, it can be hard to notice a leak in carbon monoxide until it is too late. Detecting carbon monoxide is vitally important to the safety of everyone under your care, so the Care Call Carbon Monoxide Detector is a great choice to make.

Step Three: Choosing Additional Sensors
Now that you’ve decided that your priority is detecting CO, now’s the time to choose if you want any additional components to go with your choice. If all you want is to detect CO, this is the kit for you:
But, you might want to augment your kit with some additional sensors:
The Care Call Signwave and Carbon Monoxide alarm is also available in a kit with a Magnetic Door Sensor. This alerts the Signwave whenever somebody opens a certain door or window, making it a fantastic choice for helping to prevent wandering and enabling you to get to people before they become a danger to themselves and fall.
Or, if you’re looking for a way to prevent wandering in your home, the Care Call Signwave and Carbon Monoxide alarm is also available in a kit with a PIR Movement Monitor. This picks up people’s movement and alerts the Signwave. It’s great for use beside a bed to detect when people step out – ideal for reducing bed falls and enabling you to come to their aid quickly. What’s more, because it uses infrared sensors, it won’t be set off by inanimate objects like duvets trailing off the side of the bed.
You can also get a Care Call Signwave Carbon Monoxide kit with a Smoke Alarm and a PIR Movement Monitor, enabling you to both monitor the environment and ensure that those under your care don’t injure themselves by moving around without help. This enables you to deliver a fantastic level of security and care.
And if you’re looking for a complete air detection system, the Care Call Signwave and Carbon Monoxide alarm is also available in a kit with a Care Call Smoke Alarm. When this detects smoke, the Signwave is alerted – enabling you to quickly secure the safety of those under your care. It’s available in both Ionisation and Optical versions. Ionisation smoke alarms use radiation to detect smoke, making them very sensitive - ideal for use on floors without a kitchen or other non-hazardous form of smoke.
If you’re looking for kits with even more sensors, you can get a kit with a Signwave, a CO alarm, a Smoke Alarm and a Care Call Key Fob Transmitter. This gives those under your care the ability to get your attention if they need any help. This is a great addition to any system as it enables people to call you to their aid so that they don’t have to wander around or get out of their chair and risk a fall.
Or, if you’re still looking to monitor movement but in a different way, you can also get a Care Call Signwave Carbon Monoxide Kit with a Smoke Alarm and a Magnetic Door Monitor – ideal for patients who can be trusted to move around their room safely but who shouldn’t go any further without help.
