Wandering Client Sensor

The wandering client sensor is designed to monitor the safety of people with cognitive impairments who may be prone to leaving their homes for an extended periods at inappropriate times of the day or night, putting themselves at risk.

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.

The solution can be tailored to suit the specific daily activities of the individual. There is an optional facility available to automatically turn on an outside light to help reduce the risk of falling.
