1300 885 886 Independent Living Centres Advisory Service

The Bed Alert is used to alert an attendant when the user has entered an 'exclusion zone,' for example if getting out of bed. It consists of a base unit and a wireless sensor that can be mounted on the wall, under a user's bed or anywhere in the room where coverage is required. It can be turned off when not required and moved from room to room. The attendant can be alerted by flashing lights or alarm. Up to four sensors can be monitored by the same base unit. With additional equipment Bed Alert can activate SMS phones and set off warning alarms. Customisation available.

General Details

Caution: Emergency Call Systems - NBN

The planned National Broadband Network (NBN), if built as proposed, will replace the existing fixed-line copper telecommunications network. Telephone based emergency call systems supplied by companies who are members of Personal Emergency Response Services Australia (PERSA) are expected to work correctly when connected to the NBN. Please be aware that battery back-up time on the NBN will only work for a few hours during a power failure. Please ensure that your NBN customer equipment is set-up correctly to work with your emergency call system and that the Retail Service Provider (RSP) that you have selected to provide your broadband can support that set-up. If the NBN is rolling-out in your area, call your emergency call system supplier before you sign any contract for the NBN service so they can assist you to select an RSP that is likely to support the continued operation of your emergency call system over the NBN.

Caution: Emergency Call Systems - '000'

It is important to be aware that 000 calls from automated devices (such as emergency call systems) cannot be guaranteed a response from the emergency services if they are unable to validate the condition, address and required response. It is therefore not recommended to program 000 into a non-monitored emergency call system (or autodialling system).
