Clear, practical advice on daily living equipment
The telecare alarm is triggered by pulling the cord. Pull cords are usually positioned in areas where personal alarm buttons are unlikely to be worn.
To compare up to four products,
tick the boxes and click the compare button.
Pull cords can be positioned in areas where you are unlikely to wear a personal alarm button. For example, they can be positioned next to your bed or in your bathroom.
Ensure the cord is long enough so that you can reach it when lying on the floor and not out of reach behind furniture.
Pull cords are available which communicate with the control box via radio signal or alternative pull cords are available which need to be connected to the control box via wires.
