Equipment

We use the latest technology, to help you live as independently as you can in your own home. We will make an individual assessment of your home environment and personal circumstances, to determine which items of equipment would help you to feel safer, happier and more independent.

Our equipment is:

  • Easily installed

    Easily installed and discreet, with little or no wiring

  • Designed for convenience

    Designed to be as convenient for you as possible.

  • Designed for everyday

    Designed to make the day-to-day a bit easier.

Equipment linked to a lifeline

All the equipment available to link to your lifeline base unit can be purchased as part of our packages or on their own, depending on the combination of equipment you need. Prices for these items are available on request. The stand alone-equipment at the bottom of the page is not linked through the care-alarm service, however the equipment can be purchased directly through the service – prices feature with each item.

 

The lifeline base unit – what happens if I activate the device?

Once the device has been activated – (for example, the emergency button has been pressed or a sensor has been triggered), our operators will:

  • Respond to your call and remain on the line with you until help arrives
  • Contact a family member
  • Contact emergency services or send our mobile responder, if required.

 

What if I don’t have a phone line installed in my home?

It’s very common that individuals don’t have an existing phone line installed in their home. In this case, we are able to install devices which run off a mobile SIM card – our GSM lifeline featured below.

When you contact us to discuss your needs, our professional and caring staff will talk you through the process and help you to build a package, which may include some extra equipment, depending on your needs.

Key safe

  • Key Safe

    Key safe

    The key safe is one of our most popular devices and highly recommended to all our customers. This is a small box with a combination lock on it, in which a spare set of house keys can be stored. Nottingham on Call’s key safes are the only device of their kind to be ‘police-approved’ and allow ease of access in an emergency situation.

Bed occupancy sensor

  • null

    Bed occupancy sensor

    This sensor alerts us when someone has left and not returned to their bed. This can be useful for people who have problems getting out of bed unaided and may be susceptible to a fall. This reduces the need for individuals to be checked on repeatedly at night.

Door exit sensor

  • Nottingham On Call door exit sensor

    Door exit sensor

    This sensor is designed for those who are likely to wander out of the house when it’s unsafe to do so. This is mainly used for those living with dementia, a learning disability, or other illnesses which may lead to confusion.

    The easy press adaptor can be fixed on to any sized pendant, to make it easier to press the call button if you have a weakness in your hands.

Flashing strobe

  • null

    Flashing strobe

    Used in conjunction with the vibrating pillow alert, this device is useful if you are hard of hearing. If it detects an alarm or smoke detector has been activated, it will set off a strobe light to alert you.

Bogus caller alarm

  • Nottingham On Call bogus caller alarm

    Bogus caller alarm

    If you ever feel nervous or threatened when answering the door, you can press this device, which will generate a silent call to our call centre. We can then listen in to the conversation and contact the police if necessary.

Smoke detector

  • Smoke Detector

    Smoke detector

    This works like a normal smoke detector, but it will also alert our call centre if activated, and we will take appropriate action. This can be extremely useful for people with hearing impairments, limited mobility and concerns around memory loss.

Vibrating pillow alert

  • null

    Vibrating pillow alert

    This device is placed under the pillow and ideal for those who are hard of hearing. It is designed to vibrate and wake you if, for example, the fire alarm or carbon monoxide alarm is activated

Movement Sensor

  • Movement Sensor

    Movement Sensor

    These sensors are placed in key positions around the house to detect movement, or lack of movement within specified hours or timeframes. They can be programmed to take into account your daily routine, when and where you are likely to be. If normal activity isn’t recorded, we can alert a family member, friend or relative.

Extreme temp sensor

  • Picture of the Extreme temperature sensor

    This is placed on the floor in any area where water spillage is likely to happen. This can be useful for those who are likely to forget about a running tap.

    Designed to be worn on the wrist or belt, this will detect if you have had a hard fall and will automatically alert our local call centre team.

Carbon monoxide detector

  • Carbon Monoxide Alarm

    Carbon monoxide detector

    This detects levels of carbon monoxide in the home, which can come from cookers, gas fires, boilers, central heating systems and any other appliances which use gas. This can be extremely useful for people with hearing impairments, limited mobility and concerns around memory loss.

Chair occupancy sensor

  • null

    Chair occupancy sensor

    Similar to the bed occupancy sensor, the chair occupancy sensor will alert us if someone leaves their chair and does not return within a set period of time. This can also link to a bed occupancy sensor to trace when an individual is not in either their bed or their chair for a period of time.

Standalone equipment

We also have a range of equipment available, which is not linked to our call centre, but can still help you to live independently at home. This includes:

Home safety alert

Price £32.90
  • Picture of the home safety alert

    Home safety alert

    This device is aimed at those who live with a family member or a carer. It has a call button, which sends an alert to a pager and is ideal for non-emergency assistance. There is also a panic button for emergencies, which sends a much louder and more noticeable alarm to alert the family member or carer.

Memory clock

Price: £120
  • Memory Clock

    Memory clock

    This is a digital clock, which is designed to be easy-to-read. It can help people with memory loss or those living with dementia by reminding them to carry out daily tasks, such as washing or taking medication.

Pagers

  • Med Page

    Pagers

    All of the items above can be linked to a pager instead of, or as well as, our call centre. This is particularly useful for those using bed, chair or movement sensors, but do not wish to have a lifeline installed. This alerts the user to the activity of these sensors as stand alone items.

Motion detector night light

Price £12
  • null

    Motion detector night light

    This is designed to help you if you forget to turn a light on when you get out of bed at night, or if you have difficulty doing so. An in-built motion detector shines a bright light that will stay on for as long as it detects motion, or will switch off after one minute.

Price: £29.15
  • picture of a doorbell amplifier

    Doorbell Amplifier
