Wander Management System

TekTone's Tek-CARE700 system lets dementia and at-risk residents move freely about your facility, while preventing them from wandering off. The Tek-CARE700 can connect simultaneously to any TekTone nurse call system and a variety of foreign systems, such as fire alarm and security. The system can also help to prevent expensive equipment from leaving your facility.

The Tek-CARE700 Wander Management System gives Alzheimer's, dementia and other at-risk residents the ability to move freely about your facility while receiving the protection they need. It allows staff to easily manage residents who might otherwise wander off or stray into dangerous areas, without impeding the movement of staff and visitors.


Tek-CARE700 provides resident ID, loiter and door-ajar monitoring, low tag battery and several more alerts. It runs on our proprietary Tek-CARE Appliance Server, which can connect simultaneously to any TekTone nurse call system and a variety of foreign systems, such as fire alarm and security systems.

The Tek-CARE Appliance Server displays alarms, calls, events and messages from all connected systems at once. Plus, up to nine networked PCs can view all system events as they occur using our exclusive Tek-CARE Event Monitor App for Windows.

The Tek-CARE700 system includes a door controller and keypad next to each monitored door, and a magnetic switch mounted to the door and doorframe. A maglock can be added to automatically lock the door when a resident is nearby.

The door controller emits a wireless transmit field, and when a resident wearing a wireless tag enters the transmit field, the door controller detects the tag. An alarm is displayed on the Tek-CARE Appliance Server and event monitors, plus Tek-CARE400 nurses' master stations. The Tek-CARE Appliance Server and event monitors can also display the resident's name, photo, and other custom information.

Depending upon configuration, the system will also automatically sound an alarm, lock the door, deactivate elevator doors, and flash lights. Alarms clear automatically when residents leave the transmit field. To escort a resident through the door, the staff member enters a reset code into the keypad to clear the alarm and unlock the door.

Door controllers can monitor almost any type of building egress, including single and double doors, elevator doors, and automatic doors. In addition, a motion detector can be used to monitor entire hallways, elevator lobbies, or other open spaces.

Add our Tek-CARE reporting software to the Tek-CARE Appliance Server to create activity reports for the Tek-CARE700 — plus any connected system, including resident wander, nurse call, and alert integration. Reports can be filtered by device, time and day, location and event type, and are easily exported to a spreadsheet. Administrative team members can create reports from any computer on your facility's network. Reports can also be created and emailed to selected recipients automatically.

The Tek-CARE700 wander management system conforms to the UL® 294 Standard for Access Control System Units.

Tek-CARE700 is sold through regional TekTone Elite Partners. To request more information, call our Sales Department at 800.327.8466, option 2, or use our contact form.
