Security and Safety in your home or office should be paramount. An intercom or video entry system will help to deal with these concerns. They are ideal for those who either live or work alone, the elderly and the infirm as they give the peace of mind of knowing who is at your door without having to open it and then also once your satisfied with who the visitor is, the capability to release the door and grant the visitor entry without having to attend. Systems can have multiple call entry points, either with voice and video or just voice, and also multiple handsets within the building for ease of use. The intercoms can be interfaced with most electronic access control systems allowing the intercom button to open the electric door release or the magnetic lock on the door.
Nurse Call systems allow patients in health care settings to alert a nurse or other health care staff member, remotely of their need for help. When the button is pressed, a signal alerts staff at the nurses station or office, allowing a nurse or a nursing assistant to respond. Some systems also allow the patient to speak directly to the staff member, others simply bleep or buzz at the station thus requiring the staff member to actually visit the patient's room to determine the patient's needs. The system enables a patient who may be confined to a bed, a way of communicating with staff, the need for assistance, and thus providing the patient with an increased sense of security. These systems can also be fitted into bathroom environments for safety and emergency situations.
