How does it work?

The universal sensor works as an interface between hard-wired devices and Tunstall telecare enabled systems.

The keypad and LCD interface allow the installer to easily set the sensor to send a message to the home unit, identifying which type of device it is linked to. When the attached device is triggered, the universal sensor sends the appropriate message, providing the operator at the monitoring centre with sufficient information to respond accordingly.

  • Incorporates an RJ11, 3.5mm stereo jack and magnetic reed switch, which allows a range of peripherals to be connected to the universal sensor.
