9. Automatic Fall Detection

Where you have purchased or rented equipment with an automatic fall detection feature you understand and accept that the equipment will not detect 100% of falls. Falls can come in many different ways and the fall detector is not guaranteed to detect every fall. We recommend that the user manually activates the device whenever possible.

The fall detection technology in the products we supply do not allow analysis and interpretation of a fall situation. Soft falls, slumping falls, descent controlled falls against a wall or a chair, etc…are not detected by our products. In spite of their capabilities, and considering the technologies used and the target to minimise false alarms, all falls, even dangerous-heavy falls, cannot be detected. This is the reason why the presence of the manual trigger on the products remains vital for the user and should be used whenever possible.

  • Cancellation
  • You can cancel your order within 14 days of delivery or installation of the equipment by notifying us in writing. Cancellation of any 24/7 monitored service needs to be in writing, by email to info@irl-recording.com
