Replacing ageing hardwired “warden call” systems

Alertacall provides a market leading Digital Switchover ready alternative to a hardwired alarm system.

Digital Switchover is the term used for a programme of significant changes that telecommunications companies are making across the UK.

While the transition will be a simple process for most individuals, there are wider implications for how social housing and some care providers operate their services.

Typically, supported housing schemes have ageing hardwired alarm systems, using analogue technology which will become unreliable with the switch to digital.

At Alertacall, we believe Digital Switchover presents an excellent opportunity to reimagine your service offering in sheltered accommodation, to increase resident engagement and improve efficiency by moving away from costly and outdated hardwired systems.
