Traditional Home Landline System

If you are looking for protection solely inside your home, the traditional medical home alert is for you. A home alert is the most basic unit that Alert1 offers. With a few simple steps, the home unit ensures your safety.

  • Press your help button. Protection is as easy as that. When you slip and fall, get hurt, or need assistance of any kind—just press your home medical alert button. You have unlimited button presses, with no additional charges. Wear the help button as a necklace or bracelet so it's always on you. The help button is showerproof with a range of 600 feet, ensuring you are always safe. 
  • Connect with an operator through your pendant. After pressing your medical alarm system help button, an operator from one of our two Command Centers will come on the line. They will ask you if you need help. Alert1’s Command Center operators are specially trained and ready to answer 24/7.
  • Help arrives from your Circle of Care. Your Circle of Care is a personalized list of emergency responders you can rely on to bring you assistance if your time of need. Choose your neighbor, family member, friend, or whomever you trust. 911 emergency services are automatically put on the list to come to the rescue when no one else can.

Fall Detection in Hand. alert1 medical alert systems

These medical alarms act like our landline home alerts, but with an extra feature—fall detection. Since over one third of seniors 65 and older will fall every year, fall detection is a useful addition. Do you feel like you are more prone to falls or just want the added protection? If so, this is the system for you. Here’s what you need to know about Alert1’s fall detection.

  • There are advanced sensors within the unit. These sensors detect changes in your body motion and position to detect your fall. Shortly after a fall, the pendant will call the operator and the emergency protocol action begins. Help arrives before you know it.
  • Automatic fall detection helps you in countless situations. A fall detection pendant will call for help in circumstances such as slips and falls around the house, seizures, blood pressure spikes, dizziness, or tripping down the stairs—anything that may cause a fall. Fall detection allows you to live more independently in your home and enjoy peace of mind.
  • Fall detection will call for help even when you can’t. It's common to be knocked unconscious or unable to speak after a fall. But have no fear, our operators will follow a nonverbal protocol and still contact those in your Circle of Care to get you help.


 

Mobile Medical Alert Systems and Mobile Fall Detection

  • PAX is our mobile fall detection system. PAX does everything that Kelsi does, with the added feature of fall detection and GPS location technology. PAX will detect your fall wherever you are.
