In addition to the audible alarm in the flood detector, an emergency response operator will also be on-the line, calming the subscriber while determining the seriousness of the event.
Long Island City, NY (PRWEB) August 22, 2016
Tunstall Americas, the North American division of Tunstall Healthcare Group – a world leader in Connected Healthcare – has announced that they are now offering flood detectors and monitoring to subscribers of their personal emergency response service.
The Tunstall flood detector is a neat, unobtrusive sensor that provides early warning of potential flood situations and when the sensors make contact with water, both a local audible alarm and a signal to the Tunstall Vi+ or CEL unit is generated. In turn, a call is generated to the 24 hour monitoring center where an experienced operator can alert emergency services. The flood detectors can be placed on the floor under a sink, next to the toilet, or near the bath.
Flood damage in the home can cause significant and costly damage. Homes equipped with flood detectors have potential damage discovered more rapidly than those without them. The fact that our flood detectors automatically generate a call for help, saves time and limits damage, said Kevin Doyle, Telecare Solutions Manager. “In addition to the audible alarm in the flood detector, an emergency response operator will also be on-the line, calming the subscriber while determining the seriousness of the event.”
