Description
The alarm unit connects to the telephone line and contains a powerful loudspeaker and sensitive microphone, so there is a two-way voice communication with you from wherever you are in the house or garden.

Preventing injury and helping people maintain or regain independence is key to enabling people to be safe at home. Bupa has a range of Safer at Home products to help.

Sensors
We have a range of sensors available. The sensors are designed to detect when a person is moving about unexpectedly and can be programmed to an individuals needs and routines. They can be linked to the personal pager of a caregiver or to our response centre, which is monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Either way, an alarm will be activated if a person is at risk.

Pressure Mat Sensor
The pressure mat is placed under another mat in a location that is most suitable. This may be the front door, in front of a particular chair or outside a bedroom or bathroom door.

Bed Sensor
A bed sensor is placed under the mattress to detect if a person has left their bed and can be set to suit individual needs. For example if a person regularly visits the bathroom during the night, the sensor will only trigger if the person has been away longer than the time set. Both the pressure and bed sensors work particularly well for people living with autism, memory loss or early dementia.

Exit Sensor
The sensor triggers when a door is opened. Typically these are installed on all external doors to keep people safe and are suitable for people who tend to wander.

Detectors
Bupa’s range of detectors, tailored to the needs of the user, can detect movement or lack of it. They will notify if a person has fallen or if there is smoke in the home. Detectors can either be linked to the personal pager of a caregiver or our response centre, which is monitored 24 hours a day.

Fall Detector
This waterproof device self-activates an alarm 30 seconds after detecting an event, such as the motion and impact of a fall. It can be worn on a belt, clothing clip or around the neck. The wearer can manually activate the fall detector as well. The fall detector works well for people who like to get outdoors around the garden or are a little unsteady on their feet and especially for those who live alone. Preventing injury and helping people maintain or regain independence is key to enabling people to be safe at home. Bupa has a range of products to help.

Movement Detector
This works in a similar way to a house alarm. It is programmed to detect either activity and inactivity and can be programmed to suit individual needs. For example it can be set to activate an alarm if there is no movement after a set time period.

Smoke Detector
These are installed to keep people safe, particularly in the kitchen. The difference between a normal smoke alarm and our smoke detector is, that it’s monitored by our response centre who will call the Fire Service immediately if needed.

Personal Reminders
Alarms can be programmed to include personal reminders, such as taking medication, checking doors are locked or feeding the cat. Personal reminders are programmed to suit an individuals routines. They assist with rehabilitation and work particularly well for people living with a brain injury.
