Movement Sensor (PIR Detector)

Movement sensor detects inactivitymovement_sensor

A movement sensor is a type of PIR detector that sends an alert following extended periods of stillness that could indicate a fall or a medical emergency has occurred.

The movement sensor can be wall mounted in rooms throughout the home, or placed near the front door or even on kitchen cupboards. If there is too little activity over a certain period of time an alert will be sent to our 24/7 Monitoring Centre in Ireland or to a Carer, alerting them of possible distress.

Motion detectors in the bedroom or bathroom could detect that someone has not left the area in his or her usual pattern. That information will then automatically be relayed to our CareLink Monitoring Centre where trained operators can first call the individual’s telephone to ask if they are all right. The system is invaluable to many people, not only physically, but psychologically as it gives reassurance and peace of mind.

Movement sensors for elderly, disabled or dementia sufferers

Embedding sensors in the home is important for people with dementia or anyone who could forget to wear their emergency pendant alarm button. The movement detectors like other telecare products can help older people or people with disabilities to live independently and stay in their homes rather than have to move to residential care or a nursing home.


Other types of telecare to detect inactivity

There are other telecare devices that can be added to a telecare base unit that can work alongside the movement detector. These include bed and chair occupancy sensors and automatic pill reminders that send an alert if a person has not taken their medication at a specified time following a reminder alarm sounding. Please visit our telecare products page or contact us to find out more about telecare or any of the telecare the devices listed.
