PIR ALARM (MODELS 2058 & 2059)
The PIR Alarm, models 2058 and 2059, is a wandering patient system designed for use with individuals with Alzheimer's disease, cognitive disabilities, or memory disabilities. This system requires no pads or sensors and relies on passive infrared technology similar to that used with automatic doors and lights. The alarm emits an invisible fan-shaped beam that parallels the bedrail, monitoring the entire bedside. Selective beam management allows the unit to detect undesired motion only. The fan-shaped beam ha a range of approximately 60 degrees vertical and five degrees horizontal. The adjustable mount has neodymium magnets that secure the self-contained system to a bedrail. The transmitter-detector head swivels for precise placement of the beam. When set in the alarm position, an 85-decibel siren will sound for 30 seconds when the beam is broken. When set to the chime position, the alarm chimes once when the beam is broken. POWER: Uses one nine-volt battery (not included).
Notes: A patent has been applied for.
