IR345C Occupant Help Station
The IR345C Occupant Help Station is for use with Alpha Communications® / TekTone HC345C Tek-Check-In™ System. It provides emergency signaling and reliable two-way, hands-free communication between the resident/patient and the staff member at the system master station(s). Stations may be programmed for privacy, paging and patient priority from the master station.

Calling the master station is accomplished either by pulling the 6' long "HELP" cord mounted on the panel or by depressing the routine "CALL" button. Call-placed assurance is indicated by the red indicator. The speaker-microphone is sensitive enough to assure clear conversation even with weak resident/patient inputs. Calls are canceled simply by depressing the "RESET" button.

Check-in at the master station is accomplished by depressing the "CHECK-IN" push button mounted on the station. This removes the resident's apartment number from the "NCI" (not-checked-in) column on the master station video monitor (NC313 with NC314A).
