Customer Care Frequently Asked Questions

What is the warranty period?

The warranty period for transmitters is the date listed on the transmitter. The date for other parts are one year and the date for systems are one year from install, if installed by an RFT certified installer.


What should I do when my Transmitters are expired?

The transmitters use a lithium battery and should be disposed of according to your local regulations.


Do you have a device to test the Transmitters?

Yes, we have a Transmitter Tester, which consists of a device that is used to check the operation of each Transmitter.  Assuming a Transmitter is functioning properly, the Transmitter Tester will detect its signal, the indicator light will flash and a tone will sound. Additionally, transmitters should also be tested on a weekly basis by physically entering an exit zone. Note: the Transmitter Tester detects whether or not a Transmitter is emitting a signal, but does not assess the strength of the signal.

I'm not sure whether my company has an account with RFT. Can you verify my Customer ID number?

If you have a copy of an invoice, your Customer ID (account) number can be found on the left hand side under the address. If you have a copy of a packing slip, look for the Customer ID number on the left hand side above the billing address, where it says: “Sold To:”


I have a resident that keeps cutting the band off. Do you make a band that can't be cut?

Such a band would require wire as a component of the banding material, which could potentially irritate or even cut the patient’s skin, so our banding is tamper-resistant, rather than tamper-proof.  Try moving the transmitter to the other hand, or placing on an ankle rather than wrist.

Another suggestion is to double-band the transmitter with two different banding materials. We have both grey and beige vinyl banding, as well as navy canvas banding. If you put both these bands on the transmitter, there are two different types of material to work through, making it more difficult to cut.
