This document is here to describe the types of monitoring solutions available, as well as here to help you understand which monitors and alarms are compatible with each other.
There are two main points to consider when choosing a new monitoring system. First you have to decide which type of monitor you want to use, and then choose the correct alarms that are compatible with that monitor.
In all references on this website, “monitors” are the component that makes visual and audible alerts for the nurse to see/hear. There are several types of monitors to choose from. First you have to ask yourself if you want a local monitor or a central monitor.
Can be wired or wireless:
Wired Monitors – Wired local monitors will have a cord running from the alarm to the monitor. Our wired monitors come with a range of features: basic alarm monitoring, change pad indicators (for bed and chair pads), recordable voice alarm, and auto-reset capabilities. View feature comparisons.
Our central monitors allow you to monitor all of your residents from one central station. All central monitors are wireless. The type of central monitor you choose solely depends on how many residents and alarms you need to monitor.
EliteCare+ Central Monitor – This monitor has 999 channels for alarms, and a range from 200 ft. This range can be extended to 400 ft. with optional signal repeaters. Benefits of using this central monitor include:
• Extend usable range with signal repeaters (aka. “signal bumpers”).
• Optional interface for nurse paging system with 1-mile range, LED alarm display board for nurse station.
• Custom programmable room numbers for display on central monitor.
Alarms, as referred to on this website, are the devices that alert the monitor to go off. This can be a range of devices including call buttons, pressure pads, floor mats, motion sensors, seatbelts, and more. However, there may be several types of each alarm that work with different monitors. If you know which type of alarm you need, here you can find out which monitoring solutions are available for that alarm.
