St. Louis Life 


Established in 2005, St. Louis Life is a community-based, residential program for young adults with developmental disabilities. Residents work and live in the community and are allowed to make decisions that affect all aspects of their lives. This independent living program offers single-bedroom apartments, job placement/coaching, social, educational and recreational activities, and many other support services.

St. Louis Life’s objective was to increase the protection for their residents without intruding in their privacy. They were willing to take any steps necessary but had a fear that the residents might feel uncomfortable with changes. Their goal was to have a quick and easy way for residents to call for help in the case of an emergency and a way they could monitor their residents as a safety precaution.

St. Louis Life has partnered with Primary Systems to meet their objectives. Primary Systems helped integrate a covert CCTV system that the administration could monitor to ensure the safety of their residents. With the installation of cameras that had the appearance of smoke detector’s St. Louis Life had the system they needed while also keeping in mind the privacy of the residents. Primary Systems was able to adapt and meet the needs of St. Louis Life with the integration of this covert CCTV system.


Primary Systems utilized System Technologies to implement an inexpensive feature with a rich solution - A Wireless Emergency System. While traditional systems are usually hard wired System Technologies leads the industry in developing, manufacturing and marketing affordable wireless nurse call and emergency call systems for healthcare and life safety applications. With the integration of this wireless system St. Louis Life was able to have a quick and easy way for residents to call for help in the case of an emergency.
