Sycall is a radio signalling system consisting of a control console together with a number of self contained remote room call units and accessories.

The system is ideal for use in nursing homes, hospitals, detention centres and other environments where multi-functional communication is required.

As Sycall requires no hard wiring other than a mains supply to the console, it is quick to install, flexible in it's application, and simple to upgrade when necessary. Sycall is DTI approved to MPT 1344.


Routine Call

Operation of a Call Button, Pear Switch, or Pull Cord will immediately initiate the following:-

  • Reassurance lamp on Room Unit illuminates. Call tone in Master Console sounds. (This may be silenced if required, and will resound should a further call occur). Room number is displayed on Master Console.
  • Where applicable Pocket Receivers sound call tone and display room number, and timed the Printer records details of the call. Should further calls occur the CALL WAITING indicator illuminates and the room number display is sequenced.
  • RESETTING – The nurse or warden proceeds to the room and clears the call by pressing the RESET button on the Room Unit. This clears the call from the Room Unit, Master Console and records the time on the Printer (where applicable).
  • EMERGENCY – Should the nurse or warden decide the situation requires emergency help, the appropriate button is pressed. This will override all other waiting calls, sound an ‘urgent’ tone, and display ’E’, together with the room number.
  • BATTERY MONITORING – Should any of the batteries in the Room Units run down a signal is transmitted to the Master Console, which then displays the room number and sounds a special warning tone.
