Tunstall launched its new touchscreen Housing Services Portal (HSP) at this year's Chartered Institute of Housing Exhibition 2012. This bespoke care management portal enables managers in sheltered and supported housing schemes to monitor and control various features and functions of Tunstall's Communicall Connect systems from an easy-to-use, intuitive touchscreen application running on a tablet PC.
Tunstall's Housing Services Portal connects to the Communicall Connect system via WiFi, giving activity-monitoring capability in conjunction with PIRs. The high-tech HSP presents scheme managers with an easy-to-read graphic dashboard of resident activity to ensure their well-being. This enables managers to see at a glance if they need to prioritise a resident visit. With the addition of an "I'm OK" button, residents are able to actively request a visit, allowing them to feel more in control.
In addition to its intuitive real-time reporting capabilities, the Housing Services Portal:
The HSP enables managers to configure Communicall Connect speech modules and change settings such as door entry codes for individual residents, and gives access to the Communicall Connect user guide.
Tony Walker, Sales Manager at Tunstall said:
Our pioneering Housing Services Portal provides care management at your fingertips, and helps make supporting the health and wellbeing of residents both easier and less intrusive. The built-in graphical activity monitor displays activity levels in an instant, using green, amber and red to denote whether the resident is home, away, or if there has been no movement for a significant length of time. The Housing Services Portal provides an accurate insight into people's changing needs and enables staff to better manage and plan their work, saving time and money.
The Housing Services Portal works alongside Tunstall's latest Communicall Connect system, which allows staff to communicate with residents 24 hours a day through speech modules installed in both individual and communal areas.
