The wandering client sensor is located above the door and comprises a PIR (Passive Infra Red) movement detector, door contacts and a control module which together detect if someone has walked out of the door and not returned. The alarm can be set to activate for certain periods of the day, and will work with the Caresse/Caresse+ to make a call either to the caregiver, onsite staff or the monitoring centre.
