Why Choose Alert1 Over Life Alert?
More than 234,000 families nationwide have relied on Alert1 to stay safe and live better
5 Reasons Why Alert1 is the Best Life Alert Alternative
1. Value

We have systems to meet every need, lifestyle, and budget (invaluable protection at affordable pricing)
2. Support

Once a member sends an alert, our emergency response team stays on the line with them until help arrives (not all companies do this)
3. Transparency

Alert1 does not charge our members for "false alarms" or multiple emergency button-pushes (some other companies do)
4. Flexibility

We provide monthly service plan options so no one is "locked in," as well as discounted annual plans (some of our competitors only offer multi-year plans)
5. Service

Our emergency Command Centers are staffed by trained agents who are available 24/7/365 (professional responders are always standing by)
Alert1: The Best Life Alert Alternative
Life Alert is often quoted for their well-remembered television slogan, "I've fallen and I can't get up.”™ Unlike Life Alert, Alert1 does not advertise on TV. Without high-priced commercial air time to finance, Alert1 is able to provide affordable solutions that match and even exceed the features of Life Alert’s medical alert systems. Another important difference between the two companies is that Life Alert requires 3 year contracts from its members, while Alert1 offers flexible plan options that range from just one month at a time to 10 months. We have found that some members enjoy our 10 month plan as it offers the greatest savings, while others prefer paying one month at a time. No matter which plan is selected, members are never “locked in” and may choose to cancel at any time. Life Alert systems are up to three times more expensive than those of Alert1. Choosing Alert1 as an alternative to Life Alert could save you more than $140 in the first year alone!¹

If you’ve ever visited Life Alert’s website, you will notice that there is no pricing information displayed. In contrast, Alert1’s website is transparent on our pricing and quite easy to use. Simply choose whether you want a medical alert that works in the home or on the go, and decide if you want to add fall detection (we highly recommend this feature to all of our members for optimal safety and protection). That’s all there is to it! You can easily order online or give us a call and we can answer any questions and assist you in securing your new device. We also ship our systems via FedEx priority, at no cost to our members. Because our operations are organized and efficient, we are able to ship 85% of our new orders on the same day they are placed. These are just some of the many value-added benefits that make Alert1 the ideal choice when selecting a medical alert service provider.
