The Alert-it door activity sensor offers many unique features that enhance its use in a care home as well as domestic situations. Not only will it notify of the door being opened, but it can be temporarily disarmed while the carer is at the door with automatic re-arming when the door is closed. The unit can be disabled with a secure key.
The switch uses a high-strength rare-earth magnet mounted opposite the detector to sense the door being opened. This makes installation especially easy as the gap between the door and the door frame is not critical. Self-adhesive pads will be sufficient in most circumstances, reducing and damage to the d?cor.
The alarm can be set to reset once the door closes, allowing staff to judge their response. For emergency doors the alarm can be latched, ensuring staff go to the door to reset the unit.
Once the door is open the alarm can be temporarily reset to allow staff to, for instance, talk to a visitor or leave a door open during the daytime. It also allows staff to exit the building, but leaving the alarm primed to protect the resident once the door is closed again.
A simple jack key can be used to turn off the unit, or an optional keyswitch can be fitted.
