The Daisy Network Controller is the intelligence of the Daisy nurse call system and connects all the peripheral components together. It supports both wired and wireless devices, although the current trend is two-way wireless devices.
It is important to note that the Daisy wireless network operates a highly resilient spread spectrum two-way wireless IoT (internet of Things) network. It is not Wifi. Vitalcare consider Wifi too unreliable as the backbone of a nurse call service.
The network controller can be programmed on-site or remotely using Vitalcare’s cloud based management system. Each input device (such as pendants and call points) can be configured for specific instructions in the case of activation, including an escalation procedure and application of staffing shift and zone rosters.
The network controller also connects to the internet for reporting using Vitalcloud. A comprehensive range of reports is supported. These reports can be viewed on any browser based device or emailed on schedule.
Vitalcare network controllers are typically installed with battery backup ensuring the system can operate for at least 3 hours without external power. However, any backup duration can be provided as required with the addition of batteries.
Legacy Vitalcare nurse call systems can be simply upgraded to the Daisy network with the installation of a new network controller and system gateway. This provides an effective low cost transition from old technology to the latest available.
