Personal Alarms that Call Friends or Family
Can a personal alarm call my Family?
Yes, our friends and family monitoring option means that your alarm can call the people you chose when you need help. Our personal alarms make sure that you can reach friends or family 24 hours a day when you need help.
How do family monitored alarms work?
Your alarm will have a phone number that will show up when it calls for help. So your contacts will always know it’s you calling. When you need help just press the call button or, if you fall, the fall detector will automatically call for help. In the event of an emergency, the alarm will call the three nominated contacts in order until somebody answers. Our advanced ‘human answer’ technology stops the device from connecting with voicemail or answerphone.
The advanced technology we use in our personal alarms makes staying connected easier than ever.
Which personal alarms are friends and family monitored?
We offer two alarms with the option of friends and family monitoring. The home-based SureSafe Personal Alarm and the go-anywhere SureSafeGO.
For those who like to get out and about, our alarm, the SureSafeGO uses GPS which means you can trigger the alarm wherever there is a reliable mobile network. We use a range of mobile networks to get the best coverage possible. Your alarm can be programmed with up to three numbers, keeping you connected with carers or loved ones.
There is no set up required and it is ready to use straight out of the box, all you need is pay-as-you-go credit available from us. As there is no response centre here, there are no monthly fees. Connecting to loved ones couldn’t be easier.
For those looking after elderly relatives
One of the other benefits of our family monitored SureSafeGO alarm is that it comes with an optional Geo-Fence. For some customers with elderly relatives who wander, Geo-Fence is a great option. You are able to set it up to receive notifications when your relative is not in their normal location. And if you are worried you can text their personal alarm and it will send back their location. N.b the battery life of the alarm is reduced when the Geo-Fence feature is active.
For those who want to stay safe in their own home, we offer the SureSafe Personal Alarm which operates using your landline - without interfering with the existing telephone connection.
What types of Personal Alarms are available?
Designed for anybody who wants reassurance for themselves or a loved one, our alarms come with practical features such as automatic fall detection. This enables the device to be triggered even when you're not able to press the SOS button, making it a practical solution for those worried about falling and people with conditions such as diabetes, dementia or epilepsy.
Bathrooms are often the cause for concern when supporting a loved one to remain in their home and rightly so - the vast majority of slips and falls take place here. With this in mind, many of our products are either fully waterproof or shower-resistant, allowing you to continue with day-to-day life.
For those who like to get out and about, we offer a range of devices with GPS tracking. All of our alarms can be used in the home and garden practically with some offering a range of up to 150 metres, meaning there is little disruption to routine.
For extra reassurance, our 24/7 monitored service can link the wearer directly to one of our Independent Living Specialists. They can put you in touch with nominated family members or contact the emergency services. We’ll even stay on the line and offer further advice until help arrives.
Our alarms offer the reassurance that you or your loved one will always be able to connect to a nominated friend, neighbour or family member day or night at the touch of a button.
