Kelsi is Alert1’s mobile medical alert system. Kelsi connects you via cellular network to the Alert1 Command Center, who will be able to quickly send you the help you need. The best part of having Kelsi? Kelsi works anywhere - both at home and on the go. And, if you ever need help but don’t know where you are, Kelsi uses 911 technology to determine your position so that we can send help directly to you. This means you get the help you need in less time.

Kelsi is small, lightweight, and waterproof, so you can easily keep it with you. It arrives pre-programmed – no setup required! The battery lasts up to 1 month on a single charge (that’s 20x longer than our competitors mobile systems). When the battery is low, you will receive email, text, and phone notification. No need for a landline or a additional cellular contract, Kelsi is all you need.

Why do I need a mobile medical alert?

If you are at risk of falling or experiencing a medical emergency, that risk does not disappear when you leave your home. Kelsi is a comfort to those who don’t want to be caught alone outside when disaster strikes. Pressing the help button quickly summons the Alert1 Command Center, and they will send you the help you need.

Seniors can go missing when they’re out and about not always knowing their exact location. You don’t have time to figure it out where you are specially in the instance of an emergency. This is why Kelsi is so great – it uses 911 technology to locate you. Help will be sent directly to your location, even if you don’t know where you are. At home or on-the-go, Kelsi is there for you as your safety net.

You may be wondering if this technology is different from all other medical alert systems. Well, the technology is a bit more advanced and allows you to have a personal emergency lifeline outside of the home. When you need help, simply press the button. Kelsi contains a microphone and speaker, and will open up two-way voice communication between you and the Alert1 Command Center.  Our trained, US-based operators will come on the line and ask you if you need help. They will send seniors needed help from their customized list of responders.

If you don’t know where you are, the Alert1 Command Center will open a connection with 911 and use their patented geo-location GPS technology to locate you with 2 meters. We will call your responders and tell them where to find you. We want to make sure you are safe and are never alone, so we will stay on the line with you until help arrives.

Who do you call when I need help?

The help that comes when you press your help button is up to you – you get to personalize your Circle of Care. Your Circle of Care is your personalized list of responders. You choose who you would like us to call, and in what order. It is completely customizable!  Want us to call 911 immediately? We can do that. Want your neighbor or family member called to come check on you first? We can do that too. With our medical alert systems, you will get exactly the help you need.

Where does the mobile medical alert work?

Kelsi works anywhere that there is T-Mobile cellular coverage – that’s nationwide! You can take mobile alert systems anywhere in the country and be able to call for help. Put in around your neck or in your pocket – Kelsi is easy to take anywhere.

Do I need to purchase any additional cellular contracts?

No, absolutely not! We take care of everything. No base station, landline phone, or costly cellular contracts needed. We preprogram Kelsi so that everything is already set up when Kelsi arrives.

For your peace of mind we encourage you to test the Kelsi’s help button to check that everything is working. So what exactly happens after you press your senior help button? After you press your button, an Alert1 operator will come on the line through Kelsi’s two-way voice communication system. Simply tell the operator that you are testing, and they will wish you a good day and disconnect. We want you to feel comfortable pressing your button, and testing it will make it seem less scary. There is no charge for button pushes. We encourage you to press the help button whenever you need help.
