Our range of EZ CALL IP stainless steel units is ideal for often harsher working environments. Call systems in higher security facilities, such as psychiatric facilities, require the implementation of advanced features to protect against vandalism and to provide accurate monitoring and reporting options.
Examples of sectors where this category of equipment is employed include psychiatric hospitals, care homes, prisons, police custody suites, magistrates' courts, detention and remand centres. Our range delivers worry-free emergency communications for these environments.
Physically, these are purpose designed to be tough and reliable whilst remaining user friendly.
Our cell call panels all include ultra-safe EZ CALL IP circuitry monitoring that’s constantly being polled by the system for peace of mind that the system is working optimally.
At one end of the scale, a client may just be looking for a simple mushroom push button on a stainless steel plate. They may also require a keyswitch operation with led reassurance lamps and audible tones. Typically, these would be fitted with anti-tamper screws and a reassurance lamp too. Sometimes the unit would have to be fitted in a swimming pool as a distress alarm. In this case, and IP 65 rated version may be required.
Psychiatric hospitals will often also require additional facilities such as ‘presence’. In this case, staff attending a room to answer a call will press the green ‘presence’ button on the stainless steel unit, which will alert colleagues to the fact that they have entered the room, also enabling a second higher level of call. They may also want speech versions too to facilitate speech between staff and patients.
It may also be desirable to add staff attack receivers, portable alarm triggers and real time location features – all of which is possible with our range.
The complete range is ergonomically designed to be easy to use but also robust enough to withstand the rigours of these often challenging environments.
The vandal-resistant cell terminals for cells typically have a wide range of inputs and outputs which can be assigned various functionalities through software configuration, e.g. different call categories, two presence categories, call forwarding, cell light controls, light withdrawal activation, socket withdrawal, internal and external sabotage protection etc.
Where overdoor lights are required, they would be housed in protective housing made from V2A steel offers the cell dome lights optimal protection against vandalism. The cell terminal is connected to a cell electronic that forwards the calls. This cell electronic then controls the lamps of a room signal light.
