With a 500 foot range and a UL-Listed Monitoring Center, the LifeStation home medical alert system will provide you the independence and security you need. 


Overview

The home medical alert system from LifeStation comes complete with everything you need and is easy to install. An easy to follow setup guide will have you up and running in less than five minutes. The system is UL Listed and includes a base unit with a high-power speaker phone and lightweight, waterproof pendant with a range of 400. Pushing the help button on the pendant will put you in contact with a live operator directly form LifeStations own in-house monitoring center. The call center meets both UL certification as well as the strict CSAA Five Diamond standards.


Features

Although LifeStation recommends that you test your home medical alert system on a monthly basis, the console is tested automatically every week. The complimentary AlertMessage service will send caregivers on your list an automatic email notification whenever you have an emergency, test your system or if you have any problems with your system. A battery backup means you will still be safe and continue to be monitored even if the power goes out for up to 32 hours. The help button has a battery life of up to four years, well above the industry average of three.


Additional Information

For a small additional fee, LifeStation offers a second help button for your spouse offering the same high level of security and protection. Although it is not directly advertised on their website, an Auto Fall Detection pendant is available which will monitor automatically detect if you fall and can not get back up. Once a fall is detected, an automatic signal is sent to the monitoring center. You should be aware that this technology is relatively new and so is not guaranteed to detect every fall, and there is a small chance that false signals may also be sent automatically. All other equipment is guaranteed by LifeStation and they will repair or repleace any faulty equipment including free replacement of batteries.

WORKED GREAT EVERYTIME I NEEDED IT

I am a disabled mom, restricted to a wheel chair. My husband works out of town and we have 3 young children ages 8-13. I got my life station medical alert when my husband started leaving for longer periods of time. Ive had to use it a couple of times and it works well. It looks cheap but it works great.

VERY HAPPY

I am really happy with my lifestation alert button. My son used to stop by and check on me every mornin before work, and every evenin after work. He worries alot about me because i dont get around easily as i used to. a few weeks ago i fell and used the button and my son got a phone call from the service. He said they were nice to him and they made him feel like everything was going to be fine. Hes got more important things to worry about then me all the time. It was a good desision.

LOST THE CALL WHEN MY MOM NEEDED IT

My mom bought one of these last July. She used it one day when she could not get out of bed. The call somehow got disconnected and my mom was left lying in bed not knowing if anyone was going to help her. They sent the medics anyway but i did not get a phone call and i should have.

billing warning for lifestation

I got this unit for my mother while she stayed with me for a few months. I specifically got a service that did not have a cancellation fee as I knew it would be a short-term service. I had the unit for 6 mos.. But in reality there is a cancellation fee. When I sent back the unit they charged for another month claiming that was their policy and they also do not pro-rate any service so 1 day into a month and you pay for the whole month. Be aware that you will be charged for the unit a month after you return it.
