Inovonics Delivers Passive Wireless Sensor for Monitoring Senior Care Resident Activity
Date:11/1/2010

ven method of sensing resident activity coupled with a sleep timer that will alert the system of a resident's activity if it occurs prior to the system check-in period. For example, if a resident wakes and leaves their residence at 5 a.m., but the check-in period is 6 a.m.-11 a.m., the EN1240 will continue communicating the activity alarm throughout its sleep cycle to ensure the system recognizes that the resident was active. The unique sleep timer reduces unwanted alarm signals throughout the day, compared to using a traditional motion sensor which frequently is set off inadvertently, creating unwarranted alarms. In large sensor systems which may have hundreds or thousands of wireless devices, a traditional motion sensor is one of the largest offenders of excessive alarm traffic. By using the EN1240, RF traffic is reduced by an estimated 90 percent when compared to a traditional wireless motion sensor network, thereby ensuring the exceptional performance of the entire Inovonics wireless network.  

Key benefits of the EN1240 activity sensor include:

  • Passive activity monitoring: Eliminates senior care residents from having to actively check-in with staff on a daily basis giving them more independence, yet providing for a safe, secure environment.
  • Allows for discreet monitoring: Maintains each patient's dignity and right to anonymity while simultaneously ensuring patient safety.
  • Unique sleep timer: Reduces unwanted signals (RF traffic) by up to 90 percent. Especially valuable for large systems with hundreds or thousands of wireless devices where excessive alarm traffic can occur frequently.
  • Maximizes staff utilization and efficiencies: Results in increased availability of nurses and other staff to perform their intended jobs – providing care to residents in need.
  • Extended battery life: Providing unsurpassed performance for up to 4 years.
