If you are at risk of falling, feel more confident living on your own with a fall detector from SECOM CareTech. Fall sensors automatically raise an alarm in the event of a fall, ensuring you receive help even if you don’t press the button on your personal alarm.

How do fall detector alarms work?

Fall alarms for the elderly are small and lightweight. They are a fantastic option for those who are prone to falling or have suffered a fall in the past.

Fall detectors monitor for sudden changes in direction and speed to detect falls. If you suffer a fall while wearing your device, it will automatically alert our 24/7 monitoring centre so we can notify your family and the emergency services.

Each pendant alarm features a small button on the face of the device. Users can press this button to send an alarm call in the event of a non-fall emergency such as feeling unwell.

Care Hub Plus fall alarm

The Care Hub Plus package comes with an advanced pendant alarm with fall detection technology. It has a simple, discreet design and can be worn in the bath or shower thanks to its airtight, hot waterproof casing.

If the alarm detects a fall or the wearer presses the personal help button, it sends an alert to the base unit, notifying our ARC (Alarm Receiving Centre) that you require assistance.

In addition to fall detection, the Care Hub Plus fall alarm comes with a built-in inactivity sensor that raises an alarm if the wearer doesn’t move for a predetermined length of time.
