How does it work? 

The Alert1 base unit is a two-way communication system. Once the senior help button is pressed, the command center will respond within 30-45 seconds. From there, you can explain your situation and the responder will act accordingly.

What is the home medical alert system range?

The POM unit range covers 600 ft. This is about the size of two football fields! In that way, all types of homes are covered. The POM unit is also voice sensitive, so it can hear you from across the room. You can learn more about medical alert system coverage here. 

What if you are unable to respond?

If there is no response, the command center will first call the home. If there is still no answer, the command center will follow a preset protocol designed for you. They will contact your Circle of Care. The Circle of Care is the list of contacts you provide. These can be your neighbor, family or emergency personnel.
