Notification Room Kits Available By Request

Vibrating Alarm Clock/Receiver with Hanging Door Sensor

An alarm clock with signaler, bed shaker and built-in flashing strobe light to alert Deaf and hard of hearing guests when the alarm clock goes off, the phone rings, someone knocks on the hotel door, or if a smoke/carbon monoxide alarm goes off in the room. How it works:

Audio Alarm Sensor

Simply place this by the hotel room’s existing smoke alarm, and if the alarm goes off, the audio alarm sensor will detect it and wirelessly send a signal to the all-in-one alarm clock/signaler which will then activate the flashing strobe and bed shaker.

Telephone In-Line Handset Amplifier

Plug this into the hotel room’s existing room telephone line to amplify call, making it easier for guests who have trouble hearing on the phone to hear their conversations.
