The RoamAlert® system offers the most comprehensive security for wander-prone residents. The system’s rapid response radio frequency technology means tags are detected when at an exit, so that the door can be locked before the resident has a chance to open it. This means a lot fewer alarms for staff to respond to.
A robust hard wired infrastructure ensures that system messages are always delivered to the server PC or other annunciation device. You never have to worry about messages disappearing into thin air, as with a wireless infrastructure.
The server PC also monitors the status of each door device, and will generate an alarm if the device is not reporting in. And if the server PC is offline for some reason, your residents still remain protected: each door device is able to operate independently.
All system transactions are password controlled, time and date stamped and logged to a PC database. Even when alarms are cleared at the door, or when a local bypass occurs, you’ll know exactly who performed the action, and which residents were involved.
More and more, senior care facilities strive to maintain an open and friendly environment. The RoamAlert® system provides not only a general alternative to locking down perimeter exits—doors are only locked when they absolutely have to be to protect a resident— it also enables you to customize protection for each resident individually.
The system can be programmed to enable a resident to pass through certain exits—to reach a common area, say—while all other exits and residents remain protected.
RoamAlert® even helps you keep couples together, even when one spouse begins to display wander symptoms. Their partner can be given a pendant tag that enables them to escort the resident—and that resident only—through any monitored exit.
The RoamAlert® tag itself is very discreet, helping to preserve the resident’s dignity; in fact, it is the smallest and lightest tag on the market today.
Unique advantages of RoamAlert® wander alert systems
False-alarm free technology
The RoamAlert® system uses highly reliable FM technology and a hard-wired network that is not prone to interference from other radio frequency devices. No false alarms, and no missed alarms either.
Personalized resident protection
No other system offers as many options for customizing protection for each resident—letting them pass through some exits, but not others—giving them the maximum possible freedom.
Smallest resident tag
The RoamAlert® tag is the smallest and lightest on the market today, only a third of an ounce and one inch across. With no hard edges, it is safe to use even on the most delicate skin, and so small that residents and family will barely notice it.
One system for all your security applications
The RoamAlert® system can integrate a wide range of other systems and devices, from pagers to nurse call systems, giving you a single point from which to monitor activity around your facility.
Scalable and expandable
RoamAlert® lets you start with one or two doors for perimeter protection and expand all the way to a facility-wide system for wander alerts, emergency response and resident locating.
