The wireless heat detector provides additional protection against the risk of fires in rooms where smoke detectors are unsuitable e.g. kitchen. The detector is kite-marked to BS 5446 Part 2: 2003 and raises an alarm when the temperature reaches between 54°C and 62°C.
This sensor is placed underneath the mattress and monitors tonic-clonic seizures. Upon detection of such a situation, an alarm call will be raised to the monitoring centre or carer to ensure the appropriate action can be taken.
