Our line of nurse call systems includes tone-visual, wireless, and fully programmable systems.

They are also found in clinics and doctors' offices, and public and private hospitals throughout the world.


In 1973, TekTone Sound & Signal Mfg., Inc. began its manufacturing operations in Lake Park, Florida. Since that time, the company has grown rapidly to serve the intercommunication market both nationally and internationally. In 1989, TekTone opened a manufacturing facility in Franklin, North Carolina. In 1998, TekTone constructed a vast research and development department in Franklin, and in 2001 we relocated all operations to Franklin.

In 2016, TekTone purchased a 72,262-square-foot facility in the same industrial park and moved all operations under one roof. The new facility is more than twice the size of the previous space, which will allow TekTone to expand its workforce and output. Being a key player in the nurse call system market and doing business on 5 continents, this new space will accommodate the expected growth.

In 2020, TekTone  acquired majority ownership in Stay Smart Care, as a part of its mission to continuously provide communication solutions that evolve with the needs of our world. Now based in Franklin, North Carolina, Stay Smart Care’s Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) offerings serve as the perfect complement to TekTone’s Tek-CARE platform, providing solutions for healthcare providers and facilities everywhere.
