The mainstay of the Alert-iT range is the pager, designed to notify alarms to a resident carer. The pager is capable of receiving the failsafe SAFELINK radio protocol over a range of up to 450m outdoors. It is specifically designed as a simple care pager and hosts a range of unique features tailored to this care role.

There are two versions of the pager. A three channel version is available, aimed at the domestic and smaller care homes. A 32 channel version is available to support the larger care homes. All versions offer the same capability to notify 4 levels of alarm (Urgent, Help, Assist or Fault) as well as detect failure in the communication channel with a monitor, hence ensuring no major equipment failure can leave the user unprotected. It can give audible alerts or be used in silent or vibrate modes.

They are fitted with rechargeable batteries giving over 100 hours operation after full charge.

For the larger care homes a repeater can be used to boost the signal and increase the range indefinitely.

Ep-iT Companion Monitor

The Companion Monitor is ideal for support of Tonic/Clonic seizures as well as situation that manifest sounds, vomiting or incontinence. It can also warn of possible danger if the user gets out of bed, or stays out too long. It is perfect for domestic use.

Bed Movement detection uses a highly sensitive sensor under the mattress to analyse the frequency of movement and activate an alarm if the movement is too long and frequent.
The Sound Sensor* is a special microphone to detect sharp gasps, clicks or groans. The device however is insensitive to background noise such as talking, TVs, radios or vacuums. Alternatively sound level can be used for those who make continuous noises during distress.
The Enuresis Sensor* (vomit or urination) is a comfortable thin cotton sheet placed on a mattress or pillow with embedded silver wires to detect moisture from urination or vomit. The sheet does not induce sweating, like plastic, and hence reduces sores and false alarms.
During Bed Vacation* the monitor can be set to give either an immediate alarm when the occupant leaves the bed, or only an alarm if the bed is vacant too long (which may indicate a collapse in the room). The normal sensor is a pressure mat on top of the mattress but a range of other techniques are available for all client and mattress types.

The Bed Movement detection uses a highly sensitive sensor under the mattress is used to analyse the size & frequency of movement. An alarm is raised if the movement indicates lack of normal movement or gross seizure movements. A learning mode allows the unit to record the normal movement activity overnight to establish the safe criteria.

The Sound Sensor* is a special internal microphone to detect sharp gasps, clicks or groans. The device however is insensitive to background noise such as talking, tv's, radio's or vacuums.

The Enuresis Sensor* (vomit or urination) is a comfortable thin cotton sheet placed on a mattress or pillow with embedded silver wires to detect moisture from urination or vomit. The sheet does not induce sweating, like plastic, and hence reduces sores and false alarms. The monitor will detect if the sensor wires become broken after washing.

During Bed Vacation* the monitor can be set to give either an immediate alarm when the occupant leaves the bed, or only an alarm if the bed is vacant too long (which may indicate a collapse in the room).
