Sorry about this.  I was just not paying attention. Here is what I intended
to send. The diagram will have to be sent by mail.
Thanks Kevin for pointing this out to me.

This posting is to inform anyone that is interested that I have made a
Deanimation Alarm System.  The first device is now in use by a Cryocare
Member.  If you want to know that persons name please call me.  The
following description should answer any questions you might have.  Feel
free to contact me for any other information.  There are several other
options that are still under development and as the first device is used
and I get some feed back the original device will be modified to improve
the final units.

	The purpose of this device is to call 4 different phone numbers in the
case of a patient dying where no one is around to render assistance. This
is accomplished by the use of several commercial items and a custom cabinet
to hold interface circuitry.
	The idea is that a patient, while sleeping, will be mobile during the
night at least once every hour.  If the patient does not move at least once
during that hour, while in bed, this will signify that the patient has
died. The Deanimation Alarm System will detect this lack of motion and,
after one hour, sound an alarm and call four phone numbers. If the patient
gets out of bed for any reason, the optional Bed Mat will disable the
Motion Detector.  If the patient is out of bed or out of Motion Detector
range for more than one hour the ARM/DISABLE switch must be moved to the
DISABLE position. The patient should take the Pendant with them. If a
problem occurs, they must push the call button on the Pendant to activate
the X10 Power House and call the four phone numbers.  The person on the
receiving end of the phone calls will hear a pre-recorded message and take
the necessary action. 

The X10 Power House phone dialer has its own manual. Follow the
installation instructions for the X10 Power House phone dialer. Other
accessories available are not used for this application. Do not connect the
phone line just yet.


	The Motion Detector box should be placed in such a position as to have a
clear view of the sleeping area.  Set the motion detector test switch,
located under the motion detector head unit to the TEST position.
Positions 1, 3 and 5 are not used for this application. Move the range
control to full clockwise position and position the head to aim at the
sleeping area.  Move the ARM/DISABLE switch to the DASABLE position and
plug the unit in. Both green lights will come ON and the Motion Light will
cycle ON and OFF.  Allow both units to reach stabilization for about 5
minutes. When the Motion Light is ON, motion has been detected and will
cycle OFF after a short time.  If the Motion Light is OFF, the unit is
timing for one hour and is looking for motion to start timing again. If no
motion is detected for one hour the Motion Detector will send a signal to
tell the X10 Power House to sound the alarm and call the emergency phone


	After both units have been on for about 5 minutes locate the heart shaped
Pendant. The manual for the X10 Power House explains how to calibrate this
Pendant.  Hold the Pendant close to the Motion Detector box and calibrated
both units at the same time.  This calibration is absolutely necessary for
the system to operate properly and must be done each time the power is
turned off and on. If both units do not check out, the most probable cause
is battery failure.  The weaker the batteries, the closer the units must be.
	Please keep in mind that the range of the system will depend on the
battery condition. Distance between units should be within about 50 feet
for reliable operation. 
	About once a month the units should be tested. The best way is to call the
first emergency phone number in the X10 Power House and tell them you are
going to perform a test only.


	This switch must be in the ARM position to transmit a call signal to the
X10 Power House unit.
 In the DISABLE position the unit will not transmit a call signal and must
be in this position when the unit is first turned on, to avoid a false
alarm.  If the Motion Detector Box if OFF and the ARM/DISABLE switch is
moved to the ARM, a false alarm will be transmitted.  Move the switch to
DISABLE and push the STOP button,


	After the Deanimation Alarm System has been activated it can only be
deactivated by one of the following ways.
1.  The person receiving the phone call, when they press "0" on their
phone. See the X10 Power House pages, Using The System.
	2.  Pressing the Stop button on the remote Pendant.
3.  On the Motion Detector box push the Stop button, if the box is ON.  If
the Box is OFF, move the ARM/DISABLE switch to DISABLE and push STOP.  


	In case of a power loss the Motion Detector will send a call signal to the
X10 Power House and
It will call the pre-programmed phone numbers.  This function will only
take place as long as the system has tested out OK beforehand.


	There are 3 batteries in this system. A 9 volt battery is located in the
X10 Power House.  It will need replacement when the Low Battery light comes
on.  A 3 volt battery is located in the Pendant and will need replacement
when the LED light is weak or does not come on at all. Battery life is
about 5 years but should be checked periodically. A 3 volt battery located
inside the Motion Detector Box.  This battery is like the one in the
Pendant.  If pushing the STOP button on the Motion Detector Box does not
sound a stop signal on the X10 Power House, the 3 volt battery is the
probable cause and should be replace.


	After all of the above has been done and you are confident the system is
working move the ARM/DISABLE SWITCH to the ARM position.  Be sure you
notify the person your system is set to call and inform them that you are
making a test. .  NOW plug in the phone line and make your test phone call.
After the test restore the system to its operational state.



	The Bed Mat is placed under the patient's sleeping area and plugged into
the receptacle in the back of the Motion Detector Box. As long as the
patient is in bed and the ARM/DISABLE switch is in the ARM position and the
system tests out OK, the Deanimation Alarm System is functional. If the
patient gets out of bed the Motion Detector is disabled.  The X10 Power
House is still enabled and can be activated with the remote heart Pendant.
This Option is under development at this time. (9/18/98)


	No warranty is expressed or implied.  The patient uses this device as an
aid, and in co-operation with individuals that have been notified, and
agree to assist in an emergency.  The patient assumes full responsibility
for the operation and maintenance of this equipment.
