With the wireless, Bluetooth-enabled scale, your loved one can take a weight reading, and the reading will be recorded automatically in the system. The process operates completely wirelessly. Caregivers can log in to see the weight readings, and to set up rules, for example to alert caregivers when a reading has been taken, or to remind the loved one if a reading hasn't been taken at the expected time.</td></tr>

A weight scale can be added to the GrandCare System to record weight readings.<br /> The weight scale is battery-operated and Bluetooth-enabled to communicate wirelessly with the system.<br />
There is one particular model of weight scale that can be integrated with a system, the A&D Medical brand UC-321PBT Precision Scale. It is battery-operated, and communicates with the system wirelessly via Bluetooth. As part of the installation process, a [[Bluetooth Antenna Configuration|Bluetooth antenna will be installed]], and the [[Add a Weight Scale|weight scale will be paired with your system]], so that the signals are picked up properly. It will also be assigned to the resident(s) who will be using it, so that readings will be recorded for the correct person. This is typically done for you by your installer.<br /><br />
