A trusted alarm solution for Bethlehem residents

A trusted alarm solution for Bethlehem residents


Bethlehem Country Club and telecare solutions provider Tunstall LifeCare have recently completed a successful emergency call system transition for over 100 village residents.

With an existing unsightly hardwired emergency system and multiple phone-lines for internet and conference calling, Village Manager Simon Duncan was expecting a tricky transition.

"With all of the wiring and phone lines, I expected the install to take some time, however with the experience and knowledge of Tunstall's installers, we were able to avoid any rewiring," said Mr Duncan.

"We've been using the Tunstall solution for over six months now and all of our residents and staff are extremely happy with it."

The village of 130 homes features medical alarms in all properties, as well as emergency buttons and common area units in risk areas of the Country Club, including the pool, spa and gym.

Tunstall LifeCare General Manager Stephen Murray said he was pleased to provide residents with a genuine telecare solution they could rely on now and into the future.

“We worked closely with the Sanderson Group to transition their 130 residents to a suitable and cost effective solution,” Mr Murray said.

“Throughout the process, regular consultation was paramount to ensuring the solution was accepted by village management, the resident committee and residents.

“The changeover was successfully completed within the required project timeframe," he said.

“The Tunstall emergency call system is simple for our residents to manage and allows us to perform automated equipment audits, reducing our maintenance visits to each property,” Mr Duncan said.

“Another key benefit of the Tunstall system is it is monitored 24/7 locally in Tauranga, with a call continuity procedure for disaster recovery to Australia, reassuring our residents that help will always be available at the press of a button.”

Purchased just over 12 months ago, construction on the Sanderson Group's newest luxury lifestyle village Bethlehem Shores is already well underway.

The 40 acres of waterfront land, once an avocado and kiwi fruit orchard, will house another 140 stand-alone homes and 60 apartments, as well as a Health Spa and luxurious Village Club House.

Bethlehem Shores will also include the Tunstall emergency call system.

Werewolf: Katniss Joins The News Team

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
