Tek-CareTM is the ideal emergency call signaling system for multi-family dwellings housing the elderly or handicapped. Any occupant requiring emergency assistance can signal the building manager, attendant, and/or neighboring occupants by activating a conveniently located pullcord switch in the apartment, or otherwise located throughout the facility. Depending upon the system options selected, the activation of the pullcord switch instantly and continuously activates a lamp annunciator and audible signal at the managers office or other location, activates a visual corridor dome lamp signal outside the apartment door, sounds a horn or bell in the hallway. As an added option, activation of the pullcord switch can also operate an electric door release at the occupants door, enabling immediate access to the occupant’s apartment.
