Compare Alert1® to Life Alert® and you can see a number of similarities. For example, both companies have been in business for approximately 25 years and provide 24/7 emergency monitoring at the push of a button. Also, medical alert systems are the only business of both of us. However, when you compare the costs of Life Alert® versus Alert1, you'll see some significant differences as well.
We understand that situations can change for seniors and their families, so unlike our competitor, we offer monthly, quarterly and annual service plans. Life Alert® offers a 3-year contract and includes a $95 set up fee. Alert1 does not charge any extra fees beyond the service plan. We post our prices online so you understand your expenses upfront; you must call Life Alert® to get a price quote. Furthermore, Life Alert® only
allows 24 hours from time of purchase to cancel. Otherwise, Life Alert® requires a 3 year contract that can only be broken if the customer dies alone in his or her home.
Our competitor pays for extensive TV advertising. Alert1 does not have TV advertising, which enables us to charge less for our customers, without requiring multi-year contracts which may not be appropriate for all families and situations. Choosing Alert1 can save you more than $140 in the first year alone versus the company you may have seen on TV. Read more about alternatives to Life Alert®.
