Given the choice, most seniors and persons with medical conditions or physical challenges would prefer to live in their own homes and be as independent as they can. That’s not always possible, but for many, this dream can become a reality with the addition of one easy-to-use communications device. A Personal Emergency Reporting System connects to your home telephone line and automatically places a call for help whenever you need assistance, any time of the day or night. Family, neighbors, and medical personnel whom you predesignate are notified immediately, so they can respond. This system has proven dependable enough to meet some very tough standards. It is listed by Underwriters Laboratories as a home healthcare signaling device and has been the system of choice for residence of Milton, Oakville, Brampton, Guelph, Mississauga and surrounding areas since 1994.
The means to activate the system couldn’t be simpler or more reliable. You keep a wireless transmitter with you at all times. In the event of an at-home emergency — any emergency — you press the alarm button, which functions like a TV remote control, to signal the console to automatically call the Emergency Monitoring Center, staffed by trained professionals 24 hours a day. When one of these operators receive your call, he or she notifies the key people whom you preselected to respond in specific situations: family members, neighbors, friends, or rescue personnel. The system includes a very versatile personal emergency transmitter that you should keep with you at all times.
A number of accessories make it easy to adapt to different circumstances. These include a wristband, a pocket/belt clip, and a pendant string. The transmitter is completely waterproof, so you can even wear it in the shower. And it will tell you when a transmission has been sent to the console through visual confirmation (a red indicator light) and audible confirmation (a beep).
Enjoy life independently, freely, and confidently in your own home. With peace of mind made possible with a personal emergency reporting system. A long transmission range ensures that you can depend on its signal reaching the console. However, each unit must be tested for range at the individual location. The transmitter is also continuously monitored by the console, alerting you when its long life batteries get low.
The heart of this system is the console itself, which is designed for tabletop use and is ideal for bedside placement. It features a centrally located EMERGENCY button for manual activation in the same manner as the personal transmitters. Two other functions are located on the console as well: a CLEAR button, which cancels alarms or resets the system following an alarm, and a HOME button, which resets or turns off the activity reporting timer.
During an alarm, the console sounds a distinct tone to identify the type of alarm. During a power outage, continuous protection is ensured by a long-life back-up battery.
Other valuable functions are easy to add. The console can be equipped for two-way voice communications. In an emergency situation, the console contacts the Emergency Monitoring Center. With two-way voice capability, the console will also work as a speaker phone, allowing you and the Emergency Monitoring Center operator to talk directly with each other until help arrives.
Special sensors can monitor activity within your household. In the absence of activity for a specified period (either eight, 12, or 24 hours), the console will automatically alert the Emergency Monitoring Center.In the presence of fire or smoke, optional smoke detectors will initiate an automatic fire alarm call to the Emergency Monitoring Center. Warning tones will be sounded by the console and the smoke detector to alert you, even if you are sleeping.
