Do I need to check that my accessory is working?
Ideally yes. It is recommended that the accessories are tested monthly to ensure they are operating correctly.
Pendant – press the button and when the operator answers just tell them ‘it is a test alert’ and they will log it as that for you.
Falls detector – do the same as the pendant, but additionally, you may wish to test the auto-alert falls function – whilst standing drop it from waist height onto carpeted flooring, so as not to damage the device unnecessarily – again simply inform the operator that answers, that it was your regular test and they will log it as such.
What do the lights mean on my digital base unit?
The Power Button
The Power button is back-lit green to indicate that SEVEN is on. Press the Power button to hear the status spoken. Hold to turn the base unit off, press to turn it on.
– Flashes orange when the mains power is disconnected. A voice message will play to let you know that SEVEN is not connected to power
– Solid red when the base unit battery is no longer functioning, or missing.
– Flashes red when the base unit battery is low.
No light – SEVEN is turned OFF
Will my digital base unit work if there is a power cut?
Yes. Your base unit will still work as it has a battery back up which will power the unit for approximately 24 hours. (Please do not remove the batteries from your unit).
The unit will automatically call through to the control centre a short while after the power supply has been disconnected or if you have a power cut. This means you will be able to speak to the operator even though the electricity supply is switched off.
We would also advise that the base unit be plugged into the mains using a power surge protector. This will prevent any electrical surges from damaging the unit.
[Pendants/falls detectors have their own batteries so are not affected by loss of mains power].
Can I check my cellular signal strength if I move my digital base unit?
Yes please do – the cellular network is essential for sending alerts, so checking the status of your base units connectivity is absolutely encouraged:
The Connect Button
Press the Connect button to hear the 4G cellular status. SEVEN will then announce “Excellent”, “Good”, “Poor” or “Unavailable”. Press to send ‘I’m OK’ to your service provider if configured to do so.
OK, the cellular connection is available
Solid orange for a short period of time when connecting to the cellular network. The orange flashes are to let you know that 1 of the 2 SIM cards are not connecting.
The red flash indicated there is no connection to your service provider – an alert for help will not work.
Flashes blue when an ‘I’m Okay’ (Daily Check) is required
