EMERGENCY CALL PENDANT FOR SENIORS WITH NO MONITORING FEE

By
Real Estate Agent with Excellent Service Realty
You've probably heard of Life Alert senior call pendant. They advertise their product on tv after midnight. They charge a monthly monitoring fee. What I want to tell you about are some phones that do the same thing and you don't have a monthly monitoring fee. Here is the X10 system. It costs about $160.
 
  • X10 Personal Emergency System
  • This personal assistance system is a non-monitored system and features a wireless pendant that activates a calling control base to get help when needed.
  • Just pre-program the telephone numbers of 4 friends or family (not designed to call emergency service numbers) and an outgoing voice message.
  • When an emergency occurs and the pendant is pushed, the system will begin to call the pre-programmed numbers in order. The first responder to answer must press the "O" key on their telephone to activate the base's microphone to listen in.
  •  
     
    There is another website that carries two different devices.
     
    One device is a portable pendant speaker phone that automatically calls 911 and lets you speak to them. It costs about $180.
     
    The other device has a pendant and will call 911 or up to 5 preprogrammed numbers and costs about $130.
     
     
    I wanted to share this information as it does allow seniors to remain in their home longer instead of having to go into a care facility. They have peace of mind knowing that if they fall or need help then all they have to do is call for help using the pendant. And best of all, there's no monthly monitoring fee. Spread the word about these devices. They could help a lot of people and save some money too.

    If anyone farms a senior community, this would be a great addition to a newsletter.

    Steve......no I do not. I investigated this because of my 100 year old grandmother who now has a sitter, but stays by herself at night.

    Oh, by the way, we sell the exact same x10 No Monthly Fee Medical Alert System as they do for $69.99. They sell theirs for $169.99

    Please compare the two and see if there are any differences. We also sell additional remote panic buttons and wrist watch panic buttons.

    Here is our site:

    This link will take you straight to the same product they are selling for $169.99. Ours is $69.9

    We have a new offering (about 1 year old). This new system allows you to actually talk right though the pendant just like using a cordless phone. If you are outside and have an emergency you can talk to friends, family or even 911 while help is on the way.
