A linked smoke detector will activate within the property when smoke is detected, as a standard smoke detector would. It will also send a message through to Eldercare’s Response Centre to alert them that smoke has been detected within the property.
Who is it for?
Useful for those who have cognitive or memory impairment who may be unable to raise the alert themselves in the event of a fire within the property.
Those for those with physical or mental impairment who would require additional help in exiting the property in the case of a fire.
Provides additional support for those who may be at a high risk of fire in their home due to smoking or misuse of appliances.
How does it work?
When a fire is detected, the unit provides a loud audible warning to the user and automatically sends an emergency alarm signal through the Alarm Unit to the Response Centre.
When the signal is received at the Response Centre, the alarm is recognised as a priority call, and the operator can contact the resident to double check it is not a false alarm, if there is no response or the alarm is confirmed, the emergency services can be alerted.
