Emergency Call Button
Emergencies don't just happen while you are
standing by a phone: they can happen at any time and anywhere in your house.
That's why the Alert1® emergency alert button provides immediate access to
assistance with just the touch of the waterproof, wearable button which:
- Connects wirelessly to
the medical alert system base.
- Contacts one of the
Alert1 monitoring centers and immediately connects the wearer with a highly
- Can connect with the
Alert1 system from a generous 600 feet distance from the Alert1 medical alert
- Gives the wearer the
ability to move freely in and around their home, but still have easy access to
help if needed.
Discreet and Convenient Styles
The Alert1 help button can be worn in two styles: necklace
- The cord from the Alert1 necklace
can be easily replaced with your own pendant cord or chain.
- The wristband can also be replaced with
a watchband or bracelet of your preference to wear more stylishly on your arm.
We design our products to be convenient and reliable, but also make sure that they are discreet and comfortable, so our customers are encouraged to wear them whenever they are home or in their yards.
Answer the Phone with Alert1
The ability to use your medical
alert system to answer your phone is a rare feature in personal alert systems. With Alert1, you can answer your phone simply by
pushing the button on your necklace or watchband from up to 600 feet from the base
Rushing over to pick up a phone call can be hazardous and can increase the risk
of falling, especially if you are a senior. If you wear an Alert1 help necklace or bracelet, the ability to answer a call will always be near you, even if a phone is not.

Overcoming Objections to Medical Alert Systems
Many seniors are reluctant to use a
medical alert system because they associate these devices with being elderly or
infirm.We hear many stories from our
customers about their struggles to persuade their senior family members to wear their help
buttons. It often took an emergency--as well as unnecessary suffering--before the elderly relative agreed to use the system. Read recent reviews on Consumer Affairs to learn
about our customers’ experiences with our medical alert systems.
The overwhelming evidence is that older adults are more
subject to falls than younger people, with over 50% of those 80 or older
falling every year. It’s not just that
the senior can be injured in the fall, but even if they aren’t injured, they
may be unable to get back on their feet, leaving them unable to get help,
potentially for many hours or even days.
A wearable help button from Alert1 puts the ability
to summon help always within reach, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year
long. Alert1 has designed its help devices to be small and discreet, to minimize any social discomfort that the
wearer might experience. Additionally,
Alert1 offers wall-mounted emergency buttons that can be placed in the bathroom
– a room that the CDC has flagged as being dangerous for fall-prone elderly adults.
Help Getting the Right Kind of Assistance
In an emergency, if help is needed and a dispatch to the home is required, an
Alert1 operator will stay on the line until the
responders arrive, ensuring that you or your family member is in the
hands of professional responders before we disconnect the call.
The operator can also help the customer assess the
situation to decide what type of help to summon, depending on the
situation. This can be especially helpful for senior citizens who are uncomfortable contacting 911 because they are unsure if their situation is truly an emergency.
