The New Echo® Sensor Pad Transmitter (or call button) is for use with the bed and chair sensor pads to send a signal to the EchoChime300™ receiver (or Echo® Vibrating Pager™) to alert a carer or spouse that a patient or user has risen or fallen from their chair or bed.
The pads plug easily into a Sensor Pad Transmitter (or call button), The alert time can be selected inside the transmitter battery compartment to activate either Immediately/ after 3 seconds or after 10 minutes.
The transmitter can be used on its own (without the pads) as a call button for a carer patient alert. A lanyard is provided so the transmiter can be hung around a patients/ users neck. The transmitter call button when pressed sends a signal to the chosen receiver alerting the carer. The transmitter can be paired with the EchoChime300™ receiver or Echo® Vibrating Pager™which has the options of loud sounding/ flashing or vibrating alerts, which makes it ideal for people who have a hearing or a visual impairment and need to be alerted during the day or at night.
The transmitter can also be used as a call button when still connected to the chair or bed pad, patients may need to call a carer to request assistance whilst the pad is activated. When the call button is pressed the transmitter sends a signal to the receiver and the carer will be alerted.
The call button on the transmitter can also be disabled to prevent repeated activation from patients. It can be done by pressing and holding call button for around 7-8 second until red LED flashes. To go back to normal mode this process must be repeated.
The transmitter and chime receiver and vibrating pager operate on the 868Mhz frequency with a range of up to 300 meters in open field. The visual icons on the chime and pager units indicate the source of activation and have a 4 to 1 capability; up to 4 transmitters can signal to one chime or pager receiver.
Transmitters are individually digitally paired with the receivers (65535 combination codes) to avoid interference.
The Set is ready to use with the Chime300 or Vibrating Pager but will require the transmitter to be paired to the receiver, please follow our easy pairing instructions.
