Technology has become the root of patient and personnel safety in the senior care industry. However, with many competing priorities, it can be a struggle for senior living developers to allocate time and resources toward managing ever-evolving technology requirements. That’s why working with a company that has comprehensive low-voltage safety and security experience is critical.
Adding safety and security features to a senior living facility obviously isn’t as simple as putting up a few cameras. There are many technologies utilized in these facilities, including:
- Video Surveillance
- Door Access & Intercom
- Security, Fire Panel, & Smoke Alarm
- Resident Cable & Phones
- Intercom & Nurse Call System
- Delayed Egress
- Wander Guard & Patient Locator
- Guest & Business WiFi
- Nurse Call System & Aide Device
- Business Phones
- Community Channels (News, Weather, Activity, etc)
- Network/Fiber & Data Cabling
- Data Closet
It isn’t often that you find a company like Security Designs Inc. (SDI) that has this vast expertise in-house. When you partner with SDI, you no longer have the complexities of dealing with multiple vendors and installers, all of whom work differently. By streamlining the process with one experienced vendor, you see higher quality work completed on time and within budget.
In fact, the team at SDI understands the balancing act involved with managing construction and development budgets in relation to the other needs of a senior care facility. If you are not working with a competent security integration and life safety partner, then you are risking not only cost overruns but also problems with installation, products, updates, and technical support.
Finally, there are also very specific requirements based on life safety, building, and fire codes that the architects and installers should be aware of—but may not be! At SDI, we ensure that all technical and code requirements are being considered at every stage of the project, taking one more worry off of your shoulders!
