Installation & set-up

TextCare can be installed quickly and easily, and setting it up is simple. To get you up and running smoothly, read our instruction guides below.

TextCare has been designed with simplicity and ease of use in mind. To ensure that TextCare can be used in any home, the person being monitored will not need an internet connection or even a phone line.

 

TextCare works like a mobile phone and will have a giff gaff SIM card pre-inserted. All you will need to do is register it and add credit to start receiving monitoring data. You can setup 'auto top-up', so you will not need to worry about it running out. A £5 top-up per month is usually more than adequate.

 

You can choose to use your own SIM card with your TextCare system, simply follow the instructions in the User Manual. TextCare will work with most SIM cards but will not work outside of the United Kingdom. 

We supply Velcro Sticky pads for sensors to be attached to walls, doors and other surfaces. You can also place the Main Sensor and Room Sensors on a level surface, to avoid using sticky pads.

 

The room sensors must be placed at a height that will capture movement.
