A battery operated voice switch unit which allows a person to call out and activate an emergency alarm. The voice switch can be used to operate most types of alarm systems including radio transmitters, light alarms and monitored alarm systems. Consists of a microphone, power pack and voice switch unit.
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).
Extra product information
The unit consists of a microphone, power pack and the voice switch unit.
The microphone is positioned close to the user, so it is able to pick up the person's voice. The person must sustain their voice for a few seconds in order for the alarm to be activated. An audible indication of the alarm is given from the voice switch, indicating the alarm is activated.
The voice switch is powered by 240 / 9 volt powerpack, which includes a rechargeable battery to power the alarm if there is a power failure. The voice switch can be powered from an electric wheelchair battery.
