Introduction: WIRELESS DOORBELL THAT CAN SAVE a LIFE

Picture of WIRELESS DOORBELL THAT CAN SAVE a LIFE
How many times we have seen, the comercial of an elderly person having an emergengy and pressing a button that alerts the paramedics.
Do you live with an elderly or disabled person? If so, you know that even when you are in the same house with that person things can happen and you might not notice until is to late.
 I decided to do something with the same idea of the tv ad  but in my price range that can also safe the live of any love one.
 the set up for this is extremely simple and cheap.
 
CHECK OUT THIS VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE OF THE SYSTEM IN USE (DONT GET SCARED ITS A REENACTMENT LOL)

Step 1: MATERIALS

Picture of MATERIALS

Wireless doorbells
( as many as you would want, the one on paticular that i got is only $9 and you cal have as many ringer and buttons as you need)
you can even have each one with a different tone so when the button is pressed you know exactly in witch room the help is needed

Landyard

(For this example I used only one that is hanged on the patients neck. (but you could have extra buttons and extra speakers)


 

Step 2: Set Up

Picture of Set Up

-If you only are going to have one ringer the best option is to carry it as a beeper adapt a belt clip to it and have it with you all the time.
And the disabled person carry the button with a lanyard around the neck, and when ever they need help they just press the button and if you are next to the ringer in any part of the house will know that the person need assistance
 
-the other option is to carry the ringer with you all the time just make sure you wont forget it somewhere.

-if you dont like to be carrying with thing and your love one is very active, besides the lanyard you can install many ringer in many places and buttons too.
you can have buttons on the hallways in the bathroom, kitchen, back yard, etc. the more you have the more accessible you can be to you love one in case he needs you.

What a good idea! When my grandma fell and broke her hip she laid in the yard, calling for help for almost an hour before my grandpa noticed.
