Using Hikvision CCTV for carers or elderly

Are you often worried about the welfare of your relative whilst receiving care at home? Installing Hikvision CCTV for carers or elderly can really help!

Carers entering the homes of vulnerable people are in a position of considerable trust. Their work is rarely directly supervised and they have open access behind closed doors. Video monitoring has been repeatedly shown to be effective by relatives of victims of abuse and investigative journalists.

Most care staff working in all care environments do so with professionalism and compassion, but, sadly, we know that abuse by professional carers, whether in care homes or in the homes of service users, occurs far more often than is reported.

Another reason to install CCTV for carers or elderly is that they can be monitored remotely, throughout the day and in particular during the night when they are likely to fall out of bed and injure themselves. This happened to a relative of ours, who unfortunately fell from her bed and wasn’t found till the next morning, some ten hours later. With the affective use of Hikvision CCTV cameras, this risk can be minimised.

In this particular example, we installed two Hikvision DS-2CD2542FWD-I(S) cameras. These cameras have a wide angle lens (2.8mm) and also have a microphone built in for audio recording. Both the visual and audio can be streamed over the internet to a mobile device. There are no restrictions on the amount of devices that can view it either.
