TekTone® Offers Crest Elite Infrared Pillow Speaker

Dassel, Minn., June 19, 2019— Crest Healthcare announced today that TekTone® Sound & Signal Mfg. (“TekTone”) has agreed to offer a version of Crest’s Elite Infrared® pillow speaker for use with its TekTone’s Tek-Care® nurse call systems. The pillow speaker features a built-in universal IR television remote, allowing for the control of consumer-grade televisions from the resident bedside.

“This is an exciting new feature for healthcare facilities where hospital-grade televisions are not required, but residents would still like the ability to control their TV, lighting and communicate with staff all from one device”, said TekTone in its Product Release Bulletin dated June 18, 2019.

Tim Kuck, President & CEO of Crest, said that “TekTone is a great partner and we are pleased that they will be offering this UL® Listed, feature rich, Crest patented product to their healthcare facility customers. We look forward to continuing to expand our relationship with TekTone.
