upBed integrates with both wired and wireless nurse call systems, allowing staff to receive upBed alerts the same way they receive alerts from call bells. We haven't found a system we can't integrate with, no matter how old. Below are some of our integrations and partners.
How upBed Connects to Nurse Call
Wired Nurse Call
Many nurse call systems, particularly older ones, are wired. For these systems use a Y splitter to split the call bell connection in the room. One end of the splitter goes to the call bell, the other end goes to upBed. upBed requires a 1/4" female jack for the splitter, the other input must match your nurse call button connection.
We can assist you in finding the correct Y splitter for your nurse call system. Often we only need the name of the system and a picture of the call bell outlet in the room.
upBed comes with the 1/4" cable to connect to the splitter, but does not include the Y splitter. We can purchase this for you, or you can purchase it on your own from one of the following sources.
Wireless Nurse Call
For wired nurse call, upBed is wired into the wireless transmitter for your system. Each system has it's own type of transmitter, similar to pendants. Once wired, you must add the transmitter to your nurse call system in the same way you add a pendant. This way you can map the transmitter to "room 62" for example.
We can assist you in finding the correct transmitter for your nurse call system. Often times we just need the name of the system.
upBed includes a 1/4" male to two wire terminal adapter to wire in the transmitter, but does not include the transmitter. We can purchase this for you, or you can purchase it directly from your nurse call provider.
