The Wall Mount Help Button utilises Pearl RF technology to communicate wirelessly with Chiptech ERICA and EVE base units. The Wall Mount Button is a fixed button for users to press to raise an alert for assistance. Pressing the help button will initiate the base unit pre-alarm and subsequent emergency activation to be sent. This can only be cancelled by pressing the CANCEL button on the base unit.
Installation and Maintenance
The Wall Mount Help Button plate is an industry-standard sized fitting, and will retrofit over old wired call points, or can be used in new installation locations. It is learned into the Chiptech base unit in the same manner as a standard pendant, by activating the button during Learn Mode. In Range Test Mode, you will hear two counts as the Wall Mount Help Button is pressed, then released, sending an activation signal to the base unit.
Chiptech recommends regular monthly testing of all fixed Wall Mount Help Buttons to ensure they are working as expected.
