The Basic Alarm is our standard personal alarm.
Worn on the wrist or around the neck, the system is activated when the button is pressed.
While traditionally thought of for medical emergencies, our buttons can be pressed for any type of emergency, be it fire, home invasion, etc.
How it Works
The unit connects to a regular telephone jack and enables the signal from the help button to our Emergency Response Centre. A two-way speaker allows for hands-free communication between the subscriber and operator, and also acts as a speakerphone for regular phone calls.
