Alarm For Elderly
Protecting the elderly from burglars, scammers, and domestic accidents is possible thanks to the elderly alarm system, which can become increasingly technological but easy to use. This type of security device has features designed for the safety and emergency care of the elderly.
As we get older, stairs, bulky furniture, rugs, and outdated appliances can become “invisible” little weapons in our homes. For example, imagine a top floor. Over time, it becomes difficult for any elderly person to climb to the top floors and this can create a risk of falling. Or, more simply, think of a slight increase in the French windows on the balcony, the risk of stumbling is imminent. Or think about a bathroom: the risk of slipping or tripping while getting in can be very high for older people.
How can you help the elderly in an emergency and intervene in case of danger? With video surveillance. It is better if there is a connection to the Alarm Receiving Center. Remote video surveillance not only increases home security but is also useful for remote surveillance of elderly relatives who live alone. In fact, advanced CCTV cameras can be controlled remotely using smartphones and tablets. In addition, they can be installed in the nervous center of the house without the need for masonry work.
Remote Surveillance Camera for The Elderly
Video surveillance camera, an alarm system for the elderly that is easy to use, wireless, and connected to a 24-hour Alarm Receiving Center. Cloud Cam Pro camera captures HD photos which can be controlled at any time through our application. 24-hour connection to the Alarm Receiving Center allows immediate intervention in the event of a burglary.
The alarm center checks what happened in 60 seconds, calls the police, ambulance or fire department and sends security personnel to the scene. Thanks to this system, we can see in real-time what is happening at the homes of our elderly relatives. In an emergency, not only do we have the opportunity to intervene, but we also have the assurance that there is always someone doing it for us.
Life-Saving System for The Elderly
Apart from the video surveillance system, another alarm device which is widely used for the elderly is the SOS Panic Alarm. Wonder what is it about? There are several types of lifesaver devices in the elderly market, all of which have similar basic functions. These are often portable items equipped with an SOS button which when the button is pressed sends a signal to our alarm receiving center and provides the necessary assistance immediately.
Here is how this security system works for the elderly:
- Life-saving devices connected to the telephone line: once the button is pressed, calls are made to pre-loaded telephone number lists. In the event of a power failure, the device will not work.
- Lifesaving devices connected wirelessly: once the button is pressed, calls are made to pre-loaded telephone numbers. The advantage is the use of the SIM card, in this case in fact, if the electricity fails, the device will continue to work.
- Wireless life-saving devices connected to Alarm Receiving Center: once the emergency button is pressed, the Alarm Receiving Center is immediately alerted. Then we activate the rescue team immediately.
Alarm Receiving Center: How we do it
No matter which alarm you choose for the elderly, the most important common factor is always the same: the speed of the rescue operation. In the previous section, we looked at how video surveillance systems can be useful for checking in real-time what’s going on at home. In the case of Lifesaver, we’ve seen the convenience of equipping the elderly with a portable device with the SOS button. The questions we must ask ourselves at this point are: What use is so much technology if no one can intervene quickly when they need help?
We know that in case of danger and emergency, the only solution is direct human intervention. For this reason, each alarm system is linked to its own 24-hour operation center, which is certified and monitored by special guards. Our security staff monitors what is happening at home in real-time. If necessary (theft, domestic accident, medical emergency) they immediately call the police, fire, or medical staff and send guards to the crime scene.
