How Do SOS Personal Alarms Work

An SOS personal alarm is a personal alarm system that owners can use to request emergency services when faced with an emergency.

These devices have been designed and optimised for our senior citizens, the disabled, and the frail who still want to live an independent life but also enjoy easy access to emergency services.

As such, the SOS personal alarm system allows its users to live a comfortable life full of independence and personal satisfaction without compromising their safety.

In the same light, these systems allow the user’s family to live their own lives without having to constantly worry about their beloved parents or grandparents.

Ordering and Setting Up This System

Our personal SOS alarm systems have been designed to be very intuitive and easy to use. This applies to the setup process in particular.

The devices have been designed to be a plug and play system and comes preprogrammed. Using these systems does not require one to have an extensive understanding of electronic devices and their inner-working.

You simply just need to buy or rent the system. The system is then sent to you with instructions on how to set up.

The typical setup simply involves plugging the base unit into a powerpoint and simply testing the system. When testing the system, you will be connected to the 24/7 Care Team, who will make sure the system is working properly.

It is important to note that during the process of ordering and installing the SOS personal alarm system you will be required to provide a list of emergency contacts.

Generally, this will include your family members, your friends, or your neighbours. As such, in case of an emergency, the monitoring centre knows they should call.

How Do SOS Personal Alarm Systems Work?

The cornerstone of the SOS personal alarm system is the constantly available monitoring centre. The monitoring centre is always available 24 hours a week, 365 days a year – even on public holidays.

As such, if you have a personal emergency, you just press the SOS button on the pendant or wrist and you will receive a callback.

Whether you are facing a security threat such as an intruder in your home or a medical emergency such as a fall, the monitoring centre will notify your designated emergency contacts.

If the situation is serious enough, they will also notify the appropriate emergency personnel.

The Features That Power the Personal SOS Alarm System

  1. Waterproof Build – The SOS personal alarm pendants and wristbands are designed to be waterproof.

This is important, as you don’t want to remove the device when you are taking a shower, swimming, or working in the garden, as these are often the times when accidents can happen.

This ensures that you can have the system anywhere and everywhere you go around your home.

  1. 300-Metres Range – The personal alarm pendants and the base unit have a long-connectivity range.

Our pendants have a range of 300 metres in open air.

This gives you the freedom to move around your property and enjoy yourself without having the risk of losing connection with the base unit.

  1. Long Lasting Battery – Both the base unit and the pendants or wrist alarms have ample battery life.

The base unit can operate for as much as 50 hours if your main power supply goes off.

As for the pendants, their battery life is rated to last up to 5 years.

  1. High-frequency Connection – The connection between the base unit and the pendant or wrist alarm uses a high-frequency connection.

This type of connection reduces the possibility of the SOS personal alarm system interfering with other medical devices.

So now that you understand the benefits of an SOS personal alarm, it’s time to look for a provider.
