How it Works

Vigil Essential is an affordable wireless system that was designed specifically to meet the needs and budget of smaller assisted living residences.

The Essential Core connects to the internet to send device data to the Cloud where real time alerts and historical reports are generated. The system uses wireless repeaters strategically located throughout the area to be covered to receive the signals from the wireless devices and send the information to the Core.

Wireless devices may include any combination of wireless pendants, pull stations, call stations, door and window sensors, bed and chair sensors as well as incontinence sensors.

Calls are sent to local area pagers for care staff or to any smart phone running the Vigil Mobile app. Call history including response time and call volume data can be viewed through the Vigil Essential Web application from any computer.
