Nurse Call Station Room Indicator/Corridor Light (Full Assembly)

Nurse Call Station Room Indicator/Corridor Light (Full Assembly)

Click to view full size image

My apartment complex is under renovation and I found this in a container of stuff to be tossed out.
This fixture assembly is apparently made by a company in Tecumseh, MI by the name of S.H Couch CO. The UL tag on the plate (which is surprisingly still clean and readable as these were stationed outdoors) says
"Listed 969R
Nurse Call Equipment
Corridor Light
S.H Couch CO
Tecumseh, MI"

More information on the outdoor part and a mini background of the system this once belonged to

There are 186 apartments with a "Pull for help" system and there is no common corridor or common area just a door leading directly to the outside world. These were mounted above the door so when the alarm was tripped it lit up indicating what apartment signaled for the bell and rotating light (think 1960's police car) to go off. That system is ineffective in today's world as it relied on another person to actually call for help or to see if the tenant was OK or if it was a false alarm.

I believe they are installing a smart system that relays the alarm signals to the main building that has attendants there 24/7/365 and their job would be to see why the alarm was triggered and call for help if needed

Interesting piece! Leviton makes similar units that take a C7 incandescent and have a louvered grille plate. I want to use those has night lights in my future house. I'd use them in the "common areas" ie pretty much every room but the bedrooms.

Yes I have seen the Leviton ones before, this is a low voltage device (28VDC). I saw one of the control boxes open and there are 2 x 12V SLA batteries that probably have not been replaced in who knows how long

If I were to build a new house, I would like some of the Leviton ones with grilles as well. I would wire them all on the same circuit. I would install them in the bedrooms as well. Each room would have at least two switches, one being for the night light. This dedicated night light circuit would be controlled upstream of the switches by a photo control. The lights would only come on at night and in the rooms that have the switch in the on position. I would finish the installation by using red Christmas C7 lamps.

@ sol: yeah my idea is similar. I didnt think of the photocell idea. I was going to install one single pole switch in the master bedroom, but I like the photocell idea. And the idea of putting them in the bedrooms with individual switches.

I've also thought about installing low voltage remote head bulbs inside light fixtures in the house for when the power goes out. An EBU central unit would be installed in a closet.

They still make the version that takes C7 lamps? That's pretty neat. Not really something I would want in my house though. I hate anything that reminds me of a hospital...

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

I have a bunch of F8T5 preheat strips that might be used as night lights in my future house. I'd probably only install them in places like the kitchen, hallways and stairways though. I'd use F4T5 lights but they're a lot harder to find. I'd probably recess them in the wall or ceiling though.

I believe you can order them through Kyle switch plates. That’s where I found green jewels for mine (wifi indicator and switch in my gallery). They also have a variety of jewel styles and colours as well as several grille designs (both vertical and horizontal). I f you make a google search for Kyle switch plates, it should pop up easily.

I actually kind of like those louvered wall plates... didn't realize they still made those pilot lighted switch plates too. I know of a broken one somewhere that I could replace.

Thank you, LampLover for the links. I am on the mobile site for a while and making links is quite difficult for me.
