CLB Acoustic Monitoring
And IP Cameras
Caring Homes are a leading provider of care homes for the elderly with over 25 years of experience and almost 4000 residents across their estate.
At the heart of what they do is the desire to provide everyone they support with the opportunity to continue to live life to the full.
Adaptive IT were tasked with installing the CLB Acoustic Monitoring system with IP Cameras at their new build, luxury Horsell Lodge home in Surrey.
Split over 3 floors, provision needed to be made for all of the 70 resident bedrooms – Dementia sufferers needed to be able to call for assistance at night time without using traditional Nurse Call methods.
In addition to the CLB solution, camera footage needed to be accessed on bedrooms once an alert was raised.
Adaptive IT's Solution
CLB ACOUSTIC MONITORING:
A single CLB Acoustic Monitoring Module was installed into each resident bedroom – this monitors sounds in a room and when a concerning noise is heard an alert is sent to a central station.
The solution helps raise levels of care and resident wellbeing – here are some operational examples,
– Preventing Falls as residents are reached before bed exit
– Allowing better sleep cycles as interventions in rooms are only when necessary
– Abuse is prevented as aggression is detected
– Privacy and Dignity are protected with less in room interactions

For the hardware Adaptive chose a POE IP camera suitable to working in low light conditions and a small ceiling mounted chassis that is barely recognised as a camera.
The CLB system allows integration with the camera to only allow footage to be viewed once an alert has been raised – this keeps response times to a minimum as an accurate assessment of what care needs to be given can be done without having to physically go to the room in response.
In the event of an emergency this time saving can prove to be vital.
This site is amongst the very first in the UK and Europe to be built with cameras installed in resident bedrooms. When teamed with CLB Acoustic Monitoring this is a very forward thinking approach to use and utilises technology with great effect.Jonathan White
