Orion Range Extender

Orion Range Extender

The Orion Range Extender has been designed to boost the signal of telecare sensors, significantly extending their range. The Range Extender uses antenna diversity technology, with two antennas feeding one receiver, and then re-transmits at an increased power to provide reliable radio coverage up to 800m.

The device is particularly useful for group living environments using CareAssist, where they have areas of no radio coverage. It can also be used in large individual dwellings, to ensure telecare sensors raise an alert via a Lifeline home unit, helping to ensure the safety of the user.


  • Antenna diversity - the use of orthogonal antennas for the more reliable reception of radio signals. Orion uses two separate antenna fixed orthogonally and feeding two separate radio receivers
  • Compatible with the Lifeline Smart Hub, Vi, Vi+, GSM, Connect, Connect+, 400 and 4000+, CareAssist and Tunstall Group Living systems (except Carecom)
  • 12 hour battery back up
  • Reception range - up to 800m line of sight
  • Class 1 Radio category


  • Antenna diversity architecture offers very reliable radio reception and re-transmission
  • Increased radio range for telecare sensors and peripherals
  • Peace of mind helps ensure crucial life saving alerts are not missed
