Sidekick Alert System
Sidekick Alert System

The Signature Series Sidekick receiver alerts people with hearing impairments to devices that are equipped with Signature Series transmitters, including doorbells, telephones, smoke detectors, and fire alarms. When a transmitted signal is received, the receiver flashes a strobe light and activates colored LED lamps to help individuals distinguish between sounds, phone calls, doorbells, smoke, and other occurrences. The optional bed vibrator (Model # VIB-PJ) vibrates in a specific pattern to identify which signal was received. The Sidekick includes a digital clock with alarm and a backup battery pack. Its range is up to 500 feet.
