Argenti care technology
Argenti care technology is the use of sensors, mobile devices, alarms on a person or in their home to keep someone safe and independent for longer.
Find out how care technology works
Care technology uses sensors on a person or in the home to check and respond to emergencies to keep someone safe.
This can be an alarm unit or a personal trigger (often known as a pendant), worn on the wrist, around the neck or clipped to your clothing.
You’re connected to a (UK) call monitoring centre once you press the button. Professionals at the monitoring call centre talk to you and find out the kind of help you need.
Help could come from contact with a 'personal responder' which is a friend or family member. It could come from emergency services. Where possible, Argenti Telecare operators will stay on the line until help arrives.
Installation of equipment
Installation is quick and simple and carried out by fully-trained Argenti Telecare Advisers. It includes connecting a small box to your phone line, placing or handing over the sensor(s) and testing them together with the service user.
