Rushcliffe Home Alarm Service

What does it do?

Many people who live alone worry about what might happen if they need help in an emergency. Having a Home Alarm means that help is just a press of a button away. This works by linking the alarm to a response monitoring service that answers and assesses all calls and arranges the most appropriate response.

In order to have a Home Alarm installed you should have a working telephone socket with an electrical outlet close by. However if there is a problem with either of these we may be able to help. The alarm consists of a small piece of equipment that attaches to your telephone line and electrical socket and a portable radio trigger. The trigger can be worn as a pendant on a special neck cord, or on a wrist strap or clothing clip, according to preference.
People with severe physical disabilities are not excluded from having Home Alarm. A special trigger that needs only the lightest touch to activate it can be adapted to fit in any convenient location. It is only possible to connect the Home Alarm directly to a Possum computer or other environmental control system for people whose movement is exceedingly limited. 
A talking alarm is available to assist people with sight impairment and special arrangements can be made to accommodate customers with severe hearing impairment.
