CLB Acoustic Monitoring
& Integrated IP Cameras
TLC Care provide high quality, award-winning nursing and care homes in London, Hertfordshire, Surrey and Cambridge.
They were formed in 2007 and their estate is managed by an enthusiastic and dedicated team with extensive experience in the care sector.
Their mission is to deliver the highest quality of care for their residents and to provide them with a home from home environment.
Adaptive IT were tasked with installing the CLB Acoustic Monitoring system and integrating with IP Cameras at their new build Candlewood House in North London.
Provision needed to be made for all of the 86 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 is our first project with TLC and we have been impressed with their fresh approach and forward thinking attitude. We are sure the CLB Acoustic Monitoring and cameras will be of great benefit to residents and staff.Jonathan White
