Telecom 400 is an emergency alert system designed for use by seniors or individuals with disabilities who are at risk for medical emergencies. The system includes a base unit and an Amie personal radio transmitter (a wireless, waterproof pendant). In case of emergency, the user sends an alarm call by pressing the transmitter alarm button or a large illuminated red button on the base unit. Emergency calls can be sent to a dedicated 24-hour monitoring center (service not included); to staff carrying either pocket pagers or wireless telephones in a retirement residence; or to family members or friends. Who the system calls, and the order in which it tries these telephone numbers, depends upon the type of alarm that has been raised. The system has a loudspeaker and microphone, allowing hands-free two-way conversation between the caller and the recipient of the alarm call. The system can also be used to monitor a wide range of events through one hard-wired input and up to four radio sensor devices. For example, when attached to a wanderer monitoring system (not included), this unit can also detect wandering of individuals with Alzheimer's disease. The system provide audio and visual cues for users who are visually impaired or hard of heairng (e.g., to alert an incoming call). The wireless pendant can also be used to respond to regular telephone calls. Other features include line disconnect and power failure warnings, automatic pendant battery monitoring, a yellow cancel button to cancel false alarms, and, volume control keys for caller's speech and ringer tone. The system operates at a dedicated frequency of 312 megaHertz (FM). OPTIONS: Smoke detector; carbon monoxide or gas detector; fall detector; inactivity monitor; and panic buttons. POWER: Uses household current or backup battery (included).
