5) Can you tell us who canceled an alert?

Using locating solutions we can tell you which staff entered and left patient care areas, when they canceled or started an alarm, and how long they were in the patient care area.

4) Can we access the system remotely?

Remote access is available for most systems that have computer integration.

3) Can we send alerts to a smartphone or pager?

We can integrate messaging to most systems, which will allow you to receive notifications in many different scenarios.

2) Will you help us with our old nurse call system?

We will do our best to help you service your older systems. Even if parts are not available, we may be able to keep you going for a while. Also, we can supply yearly recertification for life safety that verify your system is meeting requirements.

1) None of our doors is locking. What is going on?

There are a few main issues that may cause all of your door locks to disengage. First, check to make sure that the master kill switch is not in the unlocked position. Second, if your fire alarm is in any trouble/alarm mode, then this will cause the doors to be unlocked. Third, the power supply for those locks may have blown a fuse. If you are still having trouble, then please call us to help you through more specific situations. 1-800-538-7349
