AND SEND HELP
How do Smartphone Apps Work?
Take your smartphone with you everywhere you go and wear the alert button. The alert button can be worn around your neck, using the belt clip, in your pocket, on your keys, or in your purse. If you have an emergency and need to contact friends, family members, police, fire departments or emergency medical services press the Bluetooth button, use your smartwatch, or by voice activation.
The alarm will connect you to our US-based Life Safety Operators through your cell phone's cellular network. They will listen to what type of help you need and use your smartphone's GPS location to send help.
What happens if I cannot respond in an emergency?
If you cannot respond during an emergency there is no need to worry. Our team of Life Safety Operators will contact you through the app, call your cell phone, and then reach your emergency contacts. If we cannot reach you or your emergency contacts, we will contact 911 and use your cellphones GPS coordinates to dispatch immediate help.
Why not just call 911?
We are asked this question every day. Why do I not just use my phone to call 911 for help? While cellphones are a great mobile medical alert system they have many limiting features. They are great if you can dial the phone number, explain where you are located, and notify the dispatcher of your medical conditions. In reality, doing all of these things in an emergency situation is often not possible.
Our smartphone app is different because all you need to do is press a button to call for help. There is no need to remember a phone number, you don’t need to tell anyone your location, and our Life Safety Operators will already have a profile of basic medical information on file. That way if you are unable to respond during the emergency we can still send you help!
Beyond those three benefits, your hands are free if you need to help someone else in an emergency. It can also be helpful if you need to be quiet to escape a dangerous situation so no attention is being drawn to you.
Those key points give all of our customers more support and care in the event of an emergency that could not be done by calling 911 alone.
