Each room has been fitted with a switch SWI9, connection module SM, push button BT-IP, a room terminal with display ZT-B, and a pull button ZT-IO in the toilet. Nordseterhjemmet now also has two test/pilot rooms that include a communication nursing home references terminal KMT, patient hadset PAT and diagnostic module DM. Each corridor has a double display TXT-2D and ward rooms have been fitted with a ward terminal DZT-IP. Patients can now also use wireless receivers with transmitters and mobile pressure mats, designed for the bed and floor, connected to the Visocall IP system.
