Everyone forgets things from time to time, such as taking our house keys with us, setting the burglar alarm or turning the lights or taps off. For some this is more of a problem than others. However, with this device, you will always have a helpful reminder. It is a handy, motion-activated reminder aid that can be used to prompt a person to perform a specific task. It is ideal for adults or young people to use in the home or office and is helpful for people who struggle with memory or cognitive difficulties caused by medical conditions such as dementia. If you have an elderly relative living alone, the memo minder can be a welcome addition to their house, increasing their security, helping them to live independently whilst also giving you peace of mind.
Easy to use and easy reminders from a familiar voice. Position the memo minder somewhere appropriate, for example in the house mounted on the wall, or standing on a table top or other flat surface. It will detect motion up to five metres away and in an arc of 30 degrees. Whenever the person walks towards the memo minder within the detection range, it automatically replays a digitally recorded message of up to 20 seconds.
A reminder for all occasions. The message can be tailored to specific needs depending on what will be most helpful for the person it is intended for. The portable nature of the memo minder also increases the number of potential uses. The memo minder is supplied as part of the home offices evaluated distraction burglary kit and is a proven bogus caller deterrent too.
• For home security, positioned next to the front door for example: ‘remember to keep the chain on when someone’s at the door’, ‘turn the burglar alarm on before you leave the house’,’ don’t forget your keys, wallet and mobile phone’
• For a person with dementia who is prone to wandering, ‘please don’t leave the house on your own’
• Used in a bathroom or next to a sink ‘remember to turn the taps off’
• Next to the toilet door ‘have you washed your hands?’
• Next to the cooker in the kitchen ‘check that you have turned the oven off’
• In the workplace all visitors ‘please sign in, you are entering a hard hat area’
The memo minder is completely wireless and does not require any tricky installation. It is supplied with an adjustable, wall mounted bracket which requires a screwdriver (not supplied) to fit if required. It works via infrared and requires four AA batteries which are supplied. The device also has a low battery indicator. Quality you can count on. The memo minder measures 132 mm (5 inches) high, 70 mm (2.75 inch) wide and 60 mm (2.25 inch) deep. The casing is made from white plastic and features an LED light which indicates when the unit is in record mode.
The audio is of high quality, is crystal clear and plays from the speaker at the front of the device. Once movement is detected, the 20 second recording is played, then after a further 10 seconds, the memo minder resets and will once again detect motion and trigger the message to play. The message can be changed and re-recorded as many times as you like, if the users needs change.
