The Under Carpet Pressure Pad is a great way to monitor movement and wandering for those under your care – a fantastic sensor to base your Care Call Signwave kit around.
If you are unsure whether you need an Under Carpet Pressure Pad, simply return to the start of our guide to finding the perfect Care Call Kit and find the alarm of your dreams.
Step Four: Choosing Additional Sensors
Now that you know you want to centre your Care Call Signwave kit around, it’s time to choose what additional components you want in your kit. If you’re just looking for a kit with a Signwave and an Under Carpet Pressure Pad, this is the kit for you:
The carpet pad detects when someone steps on it and the mini monitor alerts the Signwave that someone is wandering around, so that you can quickly come to their aid.
Pendant Fob Transmitter
If you’re looking for some more sensors in your kit, the Signwave Carpet Pad kit is also available with a Care Call Key Fob Transmitter:
The key fob enables those under your care to alert you when they need help. Not only does this alert you to emergencies other sensors can’t, the key fob can also help to reduce the risk of falls by removing any need people may have to wander, promoting good habits and helping make patients more compliant.
You can get the key fob in two versions – with a built-in shock detector or without – depending on which best suits your needs.
Chair Leaving Pad
The Signwave Carpet Pad kit is also available with a Care Call Chair Leaving Pad:
The Chair Leaving Pad works in the reverse to the carpet pad – instead of detecting when someone steps on the mat, the chair leaving pad detects when someone leaves the mat. The mat – connected to the included Chair Leaving Monitor – then alerts the Signwave that someone has left their chair. This helps to reduce the risk of chair falls by enabling you to come to their aid before they suffer a fall.
This kit is ideal for those who need to monitor someone in their room and a communal area – it enables you to check that someone doesn’t leave their room without help, as well as ensuring that someone doesn’t try to leave a chair in a communal area by themselves.
What’s more, because these kits are all a part of the Care Call system you can add even more components to them as you wish.
One great sensor you could add is the Care Call Magnetic Door Monitor, which alerts you when someone opens a door or window. This is incredibly versatile – not only can it tell you if someone has left their room, it can also tell you if someone has gone into an area they shouldn’t, like a certain room or a cupboard.
You could also add the Care Call Smoke Alarm, which will wirelessly alert the Signwave if it detects smoke – ideal if you’re a carer in a large home.
Or you could add the Care Call Carbon Monoxide Alarm, which will monitor the levels of carbon monoxide (CO) and alert the Signwave if the levels are too high.
