Lifeline Extra service is for anyone who may feel that a
pendant to raise alert is not suitable or adequate to enable them
to maintain their safe independent lifestyle at home.
Some typical examples of were an advanced system could be of
benefit include: People with dementia/Alzheimer's, people at risk
of falls, people with long term medical conditions, carers who
themselves are vulnerable and people with learning disability.
What sensors can be added?
Smoke Alarms - Provides an audible alarm as any
typical smoke alarm but also automatically alerts the monitoring
centre providing added protection for you and also your property if
you are out.
Carbon Monoxide alarm - as the smoke alarm,
provides an audible alarm but again automatically alert the
monitoring centre for added protection.
Suitable for houses with vented gas appliances, solid fuel
systems, gas etc. Remember you cannot smell Carbon monoxide. It is
also important to regularly maintain any appliance that may emit
carbon monoxide as per the recommended service schedule.
Inactivity Sensors - This sensor is designed to
automatically raise and alert to the monitoring centre if no
movement is detected over a period of hours. the length of
time is fully programmable to suit the individual. for people
who live on their own this sensor provides great reassurance to
both them and their loved ones.
Bed Sensors - if the inactivity sensor is
designed for walking hours the bed sensor is for the night time
safety. This sensor will automatically raise an alert to the
monitoring centre when someone has got out of bed and not returned
for a unusually long period of time(for them). again it is fully
programable to suit the individual in terms of time before an alert
is raised and automatically switches off at your normal time for
getting out of bed.
(Where an inactivity sensor and bed sensor are used in the same
system it can provide continuous monitoring over the 24 hour period
maximising personal safety).
Property Exit sensors - this
sensor will automatically raise an alert to the monitoring centre
if someone leaves the house; again this is fully programmable
should an alert only be needed during the night time period or the
period that a carer/family member is out at work.
Vibrating pager Sensor - this is used in
conjunction with other sensors to provide an alert to individuals
who are hard of hearing. it also comes with a vibrating pillow
alert to provide the alert even when people are in bed and have
taken their hearing aids out.
