The Alerta Detect PIR motion sensor uses infrared technology to trigger an alert when body movement is detected within the range of the infrared beam. The Alerta Detect is an alternative solution to the Floor Sensor Mats where a PIR beam may be more appropriate. It is also an excellent facility to give patients the freedom and safety of their own room whilst still proactively giving the care giver advanced warning of any patient at risk of falling, if they attempt to wander from their room. The Alerta Detect is most effective when mounted at a door or at the bedside. When the patient moves into the range of the infrared beam it will activate the nurse call system prompting the care giver to ascertain the patient’s safety.
The Alerta Detect Wired is a simple ‘plug-and-play’ system which connects directly into the nurse call system and can be powered by mains or battery.
The Alerta Detect Wireless is a simple wireless system which functions as standalone for localised alerts but can also be connected into the nurse call system for centralised activation. The alarm receiver can be placed in the same room as the motion sensor or in another room within the building. Both devices can be powered by mains or battery making the system extremely versatile.
