The challenge

Door intercomRob, who has multiple sclerosis, lives in a multi-level ground floor house. When not in his wheelchair with ramps down callers assume, due to the time taken to reach the door, that he is out. He needed to communicate easily from anywhere on his property.

The solution was to use two walkie – talkies, one carried on his wheelchair, the other fitted inside a box, with a louvred grille for conversation and push button for transmission, fixed by the door bell. Batteries were kept charged using the door bell’s transformer.

He can now communicate from anywhere in range, even up in the High Street, a mile away!
