AlertMaster Gets a Facelift!

The Clarity AlertMaster® is an alerting system designed to provide visual notification of certain sounds or activities occurring in the home. While the system has been around for years, it recently received a much needed facelift and deserves another look in terms of what solutions this product can potentially provide to your patients.

The AlertMaster is available in one of two general systems: 1) AL10™ (shown above) and 2) AL11™ (shown below).  Both systems are comprised of a base unit and doorbell transmitter. When the doorbell transmitter is pressed, the base unit will cause a connected lamp to flash in a unique on-off pattern, visually alerting the user that someone is at the door. When the telephone rings, the same lamp will flash but in a different on-off pattern.  The front panel will also illuminate either the phone or door indicator, further assisting in the differentiation of the sound source. As a build-upon system, some optional transmitter and receiver accessories are available for each system.

There are several features that differentiate the AL10 from the AL11; the AL10 comes packaged with a bed shaker and is equipped with a built-in alarm clock.  The AL10 also features a built-in lamp timer, allowing the user to have the connected lamp turn on and off during designated times throughout the day to create the illusion that someone is at home. Finally, the AL10 has a microphone at the top of the base unit, enabling the system to visually alert the user of other loud sounds that may occur in the home.
