In addition, according to the level of care an individual patient needs, the system can be set to send an alarm only after a specified time lapse. For example, if a patient is capable mentally and physically to go to the toilet alone, the alarm could be set to go off only if they do not return to bed after ten minutes.
No video images are provided. The camera technique in the SecNurse is used to monitor and interpret within the sensor. The only output contacts are two simple relays.
Secumatic also points out that the system not only provides privacy for patients, but reduces false alarms and is cost-efficient and, the firm adds, it is, ‘…easy to install, can be placed everywhere (both permanent and ambulant), is easy to integrate in each nurse call system, maintenance free, hygienic and does not need physical contact with the patient.’
