Alerting Systems

Silent Call Alerting Systems: There are numerous alerting devices that can warn you that the smoke detector is sounding, the doorbell or phone is ringing, the baby is crying, etc. One of the most reliable and most versatile of these systems, in my opinion, is the Silent Call alerting systems. To learn more about the great Silent Call alerting systems, click here.
 

CentralAlert CA-360 Bedside Alerting System: The basic CentralAlert CA-360 alerting system is one cool product. It will alert you via three of your senses at the same time (if you so choose), so you will not miss your alarm clock going off, your phone ringing or your doorbell chiming. You will see the strobe light, hear the alerting sound and feel the bed shaker shaking you awake. In addition a lighted icon and a message on the screen will tell you exactly which alerting device is going off.

The clock has large easy-to-read digits. And it is the answer to spouses who share the same bed and yet want to wake up at different times. When you purchase a second bed shaker, you can set one alarm and bed shaker to go off at time A and the other alarm and bed shaker to go off at time B. The CentralAlert produces a 520 Hz square wave tone that studies have shown to be the most effective frequency to waken most people with hearing loss. There are a number of other modules you can add such as a baby crier, motion sensor, weather alerter, audio alarm and SOS pager. The basic system is only $157.00. To learn more about the cool Central Alert CA-360 alerting system and its modules or to purchase it, click here.

Lifetone HLAC150 Fire Alarm and Clock: If you can't hear traditional fire alarms/smoke detectors because you have a high-frequency hearing loss, this fire alarm is for you. It uses the relatively low-frequency 520 Hz square wave signal that studies have shown wake up most hard of hearing people. And if that isn't enough, you definitely won't sleep through the bed shaker that goes off at the same time. Furthermore, this alarm sits on your bed table—close to your ears—not up on the ceiling where you can't hear it. It listens for the T-3 signal from your traditional smoke detectors and alerts you. To learn more about this great Lifetone Fire Alarm, click here.

Clear Sounds ShakeUp to WakeUp Alarm Clock: The ClearSounds SW200 dual alarm clock is the answer to spouses who share the same bed and yet want to wake up at different times. When you purchase a second bed shaker, you can set one alarm to go off at time A and the other bed shaker to go off at time B. You can adjust the volume of this alarm up to a maximum of 87 dB. It has an adjustable tone so you can find the tone you can hear the best. The tonal range includes the 520 Hz square wave that studies have shown to be the most effective frequency to waken most people with hearing loss. You can wake up to any combination of bed shaker, flashing bed lamp, built-in high intensity strobe or alarm sounding. In addition, plug in your phone and this alarm will alert you whenever the phone rings too. Only $77.77. To learn more about this unique alarm clock or to purchase it, click here.

Quake-N-Wake 3-Alert Multi Timer: Use this little timer in your kitchen or carry it with you when you need to time something. It can alert you via three different modes at the same time—it beeps, flashes and vibrates. You can choose any mode by itself, or any combination of the three together. It has a clip on the back so you can clip it to your pocket, belt or clipboard/notebook, etc. The clip is also magnetic so it will stick to your fridge or other metal (iron) surfaces. Use it as a stopwatch or countdown timer. Switches from hr/min to min/sec. Uses 2 AAA batteries (included). Size: 3" x 2" x 1¼". Only $19.95. Click here to purchase the Quake-N-Wake timer.
