6 Best Bed Alarms
Best High-End
Best Mid-Range
Best Inexpensive
We spent 21 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. All patients value their privacy, but caregivers to the elderly know that they need a way to supervise frail or visually impaired individuals who shouldn't move around on their own. We found reliable bed alarms that can notify a nursing aid when their charge is trying to get up, so they can go to them quickly when needed and leave them alone when they are resting peacefully. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best bed alarm on Amazon.

6. Wright Stuff Wander

The motion detector in the Wright Stuff Wander is so discerning that it not only picks up on movement in the bed, but also around the room, or even in doorways. It isn't dependent on the patient being in contact with a pad, but it does cause some false alarms.
  • ideal for sleepwalkers
  • sensor works in the dark
  • doesn't come with a warranty

5. Syrtenty Long Term

If the sound of a blaring alarm is disconcerting to your patient then simply switch the Syrtenty Long Term to music mode, and it will play "It's A Small World." Nurses can even plug earplugs into the phone jack if they don't want the sound to disturb others.
  • never gives false alarms
  • responds rapidly to motion
  • may not sense lightweight users

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as behind the computer screen, Brett can either be found hacking furiously away at the keyboard or perhaps enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He hopes to one day become a modern day renaissance man.
