Medready Medication Dispenser Product Review

by Barbara 7. September 2009 15:55

Barbara reviews the Medready Pill Dispenser with Keyed Lock. Use this pill box as a senior product or for complicated medication regimens. A combination medication organizer and medication reminder, the pill alarm options include low frequency and high frequency alarms and a flashing red light. Optional modem connection, allows for long distance monitoring. Take medication on time without risk of accidental overdose. Set up an additional pill tray. (note: at 3:25, Barbara meant 240 Volts instead of 240 Watts.)

Question about the Medready Basic Pill Box with Alarm Model 1700.

Q: "My mom is nearly blind. What pill boxes do you sell that would help her take her medications at the right times? We can set up her pills for her. Thanks." Margaret

Answer: At this time, these three are the best ones available.

The Medready has a loud low frequency alarm. She would only have access to the medications during the time that particular pill container was available to her. The Medready audible alarm settings: 1- 4 per day.  Alarm signal: alternates 5 seconds on, 1 second off . Stops when medication door is opened. Set alarm time interval for 3, 30, 45, 60 or 250 minutes. Alarm will continue to beep for that time interval until the medication door is opened or the alarm time is reached. Alarm intensity: 85 decibel alarm at 10 cm, 400Hz (low frequency alarm)similar to microwave alarm.

Thank you for your question.

Sincerely, Barbara

 

How do 5.8GHz & Dect 6.0 telephones differ?

by Barbara 8. August 2008 05:04

Question about the product GE29115GE1 GE Amplified Cordless Phone Dect 6.0 with Answer Machine

Q:"Please explain the difference beween 5.86 GHz and Dect 6.0. I need clarity and the ability to raise volume. Also, we live in a mountainous area. Which phone is best?"

Answer: The following information we received from our distributor and from internet websites.

5.8 GHz phones offer great clarity and range. The biggest advantage to a 5.8 GHz phone is that its frequency band is less congested than the 2.4 GHz band, resulting in less interference."

DECT 6.0 telephones are a newer technology. DECT stands for Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications. . ETSI stands for the European Telecommunications Standards Institute who developed the DECT systems. The DECT channels are reserved exclusively for voice communication applications. European DECT phones use different frequencies.

DECT 6.0 distinguishes these telephones from both DECT devices used elsewhere and U.S. cordless equipment operating in the 900 MHz, 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz ISM bands. The "6.0" is a version number (as in software), not a spectrum band; the term "6.0 GHz" for DECT 6.0 phones is incorrect, since it operates at 1.9 GHz.

The 29111GE1 phone is hearing aid compatible, can expand to up to 4 handsets and has a call volume up to 40dB. Included is an amplified ringer, speaker phone and much more. All the handsets use a single phone line socket. DECT 6.0 phones generally has interference-free wireless operation to around 100 metres outdoors. And they generally are immune to interference from Wi-Fi networks or video senders, Bluetooth technology, baby monitors and other wireless devices.

If you need an answering machine with your phone, the GE 29115GE1 cordless phone with answering machine is a great product. For additional handsets, choose the GE 29110AE1 handsets with recharger base.

For your needs, the DECT 6.0 appears to be the better choice due to the volume control and the range. Thank you for your question.

Sincerely, Barbara
