All telecare equipment listed below can be monitored 24 hours a day.

Two-way speech unit

The central part of most telecare systems is a telecare two-way speech unit, also called a telecare base-unit. The base-unit receives signals from all other telecare sensors in your home (including all telecare equipment listed below). The telecare devices including your pendant alarm, link to the base unit without the need for wiring. It is the telecare base-unit that dials through to a 24/7 monitoring centre when any of the telecare equipment in your home is activated. Monitoring centre operators then talk to you and can also hear you through the base-unit. Many types of telecare equipment and sensors are available. A selection are listed below:


Bed exit alarm


Bogus caller button



Automatic pill dispenser



Key Safes



Water Leak Alarm



Monitored Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarm



Inactivity/Movement Detector
