Storing your home AED

It is important to store your device in the right way to ensure its functionality and to ensure it's ready for immediate use during emergencies. Adequate storage protects the device from damage, extends its lifespan, and allows for quick accessibility when needed. 

A home AED that will be placed on the exterior wall of the house, should be stored in a heated outdoor cabinet. An outdoor cabinet protects the device against the weather influences and ensures optimal visibility in the community. If you would like to store the AED inside, an indoor cabinet or wall bracket will be the best choice for you. Most devices come with a carry case. The carry case is also sufficient storage for at home and is ideal for those who travel often.

Ensuring your home AED is always ready for use

To ensure your AED is always ready for use in an emergency, it is important to maintain the device. The recommended home AEDs mentioned above require low maintenance. It is however important to check the device regularly. 

All devices run a self-check, either weekly or monthly, depending on the device. It is therefore not needed to turn the device on and off every day to check if the device works as it should as this runs down the battery. Simply check the status indicator to see if anything is amiss or needs replacing. It is also important to keep an eye on the expiry date of the electrodes. When the electrodes are expired, the gel is dried out and cannot be used on a casualty.

If you want to minimize maintenance efforts, you can choose one of our maintenance plans. This way, the device is checked and tested periodically, and/or parts are replaced on time.
