running a care facility not a security facility. Let the proven technology of
WatchMate system take the responsibility of door watching from your staff so
they can concentrate on what matters most: taking the best care of the residents
in your charge.
With the WatchMate system, protection is simple and reliable.
WatchMate system is designed to protect a wandering resident from leaving a
facility undetected and becoming lost or injured. Such residents typically have
been diagnosed with dementia, Alzheimer's etc., or have suffered a head injury.
At-risk residents wear a small
bracelet on their wrist or ankle, and points of exit are discreetly secured
monitors. When a resident approaches a door, the WatchMate system can
activate a magnetic lock to temporarily lock the door or sound an alarm if the
doorway is open.
The result is peace of mind for everyone—residents, their families and your
staff—without restricting movements within your facility.

"I was impressed with the WatchMate system when I first saw it.
Now that we’ve upgraded our facility with the WatchMate system, I’m even more
impressed. It has performed flawlessly since the day it was installed in 1997.
The Watchlet bracelets take quite a beating and just keep working. I can’t say
enough about how well the WatchMate system has exceeded our expectations. It was
my budget, flexible to our needs and easy to install."
