With the introduction of students into the normal school environment where previously they were educated in special schools, a need arises to enable the student's location to be monitored. Some of these students have a tendency to abscond from the school yard leading to significant wasted efforst in trying to locate them.
Physical supervision in a school yard can be a very time consuming and not particularly cost effective method of monitoring. If not found quickly, the child can be lost for many hours involving the expenditure of significant resources by the teachers looking for the person.
HOW THE ALARM WORKS TO OVERCOME THE PROBLEM.
DCT ASSOCIATES PTY LTD has developed a small alarm that is worn by the student undertaking schooling. This unobtrusive alarm sends out a periodic radio signal which is monitored by an alarm unit.
The range of the alarm is about 40 metres and when the person being monitored moves beyond the range of 40 metres from the alarm panel, the alarm panel activates an audible alarm to indicate to the carer that the person being monitored has moved out of range and needs to be checked on.
The antenna size can be adjusted to suit any distance up to the 40 metres.
The transmitter unit is worn in a small, easy to fit and secure pouch which is then attached to a belt around the waist. This pouch can be tailored to meet the requirements of the wearer. It incorporates such security as hook and eyes to prevent it being removed by the person being monitored.
This unit is powered by high capacity lithium batteries with three being supplied with each unit. These batteries provide a life of approximately 6 months
Generally two weeks after placement of order.
No installation activity is required.
The alarm can be purchased outright or can be rented over a 12 month or 24 month period with a residual at the end of the rental period.
Rental provided through Our Rental Company. Terms and Conditions Apply.
