2013 has been a great year for Alert1, as we have significantly grown as well as have broken into new areas for the Aging in Place Movement.
Continuing Our Tradition of Quality Senior Service

of our customers are highly satisfied, with 94% of them willing to recommend

Many respected review agencies have demonstrated our sterling quality with

is about a tenth of the average pull cord time!
The Flexibility of Alert1's Medical Alert System

only a senior alert system. In fact, our service is so flexible that our
youngest user is 14 while our oldest is 108!
medical alert system also debunks how emergency alert systems are only for
seniors who live alone. 40% of our dispatches are for people who live with
others at home. In fact, 21% of our emergencies are for people who live at home
with others. Another whopping 19% are for those who live in assisted
Bedazzling Seniors with our Stylish Accessories
we had bedazzled the Aging in Place Movement by getting Seniors to age in style
with our Stylish Accessories line. These accessories allowed
seniors to be stylish while enjoying their safety. They were and are so
popular that they fill 3 out of the top 5 accessories sold at Alert1. We sell
an assortment of lanyards ranging from our very popular classic silver necklace to our purple tiara
ribbon. Many of our necklaces like our black ice ribbon or sporty pink
lanyard feature beautiful gemstones. We also have started providing
cool wristbands in grey, purple,
These wristbands are extremely durable, allowing you to live your life both
stylishly and safely. We also created different colored buttons to let seniors
be safe stylishly. In 2013, our most popular color is in fact one of the new
ones: granite grey.
An Already Spectacular 2014
We have had and are also looking
forward to a spectacular 2014, as we have launched many new products. We have
launched the Kelsi
mobile medical alert, Fall
Detection medical alert, and the Wireless systems.
Embracing the Senior Trend: Wireless Systems
Do you no
longer use a landline? Over the years, more and more people have been replacing
their landline telephones with wireless ones. Seniors are no exception to this.
can stay protected without a landline phone. At Alert1, we have embraced
this change and have started offering wireless
medical alert systems.
Our Revolutionary Kelsi Mobile Alert System for Seniors
also just launched the Kelsi mobile
medical alert system, which offers you protection wherever you go. The
Kelsi works both at home and on the go, making the need for an extra landline
or cellular service unnecessary. You also never need to worry about knowing
your location. Whenever there is an emergency we use our senior-friendly
GPS location technology to find you within a 2 meter radius. It is
extremely easy to keep on the Kelsi on wherever you go, as it is small and
lightweight. In fact, the Kelsi weighs about an ounce. Our mobile medical alert
system is also pre-programmed so that you don’t need to spend extra effort on
setting it up. You also need less effort charging our mobile medical alert
system, as its battery last thirty days – that is the best in the industry!
Plus, you can get help nationwide because we work with T-mobile, one of the
US’s most trusted nationwide carriers. However, you don’t worry about dealing
with the cellular charges! We take care of it all for you.
The Vanguard of Senior Safety: The Alert1 Fall Detection System
Our fall detection
medical alert was also recently launched. This system has 5
advanced accelerometers that accurately detect falls. Once someone has fallen,
the system will automatically call the command center to help you. You can use
the automatic fall detection along with the emergency call button, giving you
and your loved ones a great peace of mind. Fall detection is great for seniors
because seniors can get help even if they are unable to press the emergency
call button. For example, if a senior falls down and faints, the fall detection
will be able to get the senior help.
Seniors Look Forward To More Tomorrows
and 2014 have been and will be great years for Alert1. In 2013, we had a great
year filled with growth, especially in the industry and member
satisfaction zones. We also expanded into new areas for the Aging in Place
Movement with the creation of our Stylish Accessories line. Here, we have sold
our immensely popular necklaces like the blue bling
gemstones. In 2014, we have expanded our main lines to include more
products to let Seniors age in place and live their live on the go. These
include the wireless medical alert system and the fall detection system. We
have also started selling the revolutionary Kelsi
mobile medical alert that gives protection both at home and on the go. With
all that has been done in 2013 and the beginning of 2014, it’s no wonder that
we look forward to more tomorrows!
