Smallest, most comfortable pendant on the market
Even though fall detection devices are designed to be comfortable, some of them are bulky, which makes them uncomfortable and inconvenient to wear. Instead of requiring you to wear a base unit around your neck, Bay Alarm Medical has designed the smallest, most comfortable fall alert pendant on the market.
- Buying experience
Although some medical alert system companies may require you to call a customer service representative when purchasing a unit, Bay Alarm medical makes the buying process easy by allowing you to sign up on their website. Click the ‘Order Online’ link at the top of the page and all of the plans and equipment are broken down for you.
If you have questions, you can always give a customer service representative a call. If you don’t want to use the phone, you can use their live chat feature instead! If you want to send them a quick question that doesn’t need to be answered immediately, you can submit a query on their ‘Customer Service’ tab.
The automatic fall detection feature is designed to be paired with one of their other plans, which makes it a convenient and easy add-on, instead of its own plan. It is available with the in-home plan and cellular plan. However, the fall alert detection device is not GPS enabled, which means it must stay within reach of the base unit. It has an 800 foot range, which is large enough to cover most homes and yards.
Although the button is one of the smallest and most comfortable fall alert detection devices on the market, it is extremely effective. It is optimized to minimize false alarms and is completely waterproof so you can take it with you directly into the shower.
There’s no need to worry about charging your fall alert detection pendant. It utilizes a battery that will last for a full two years before needing to be replaced.
Although pendant necklaces are convenient, they can be dangerous in their own right if the lanyard gets caught or pulled. Bay Alarm Medical’s fall alert detection pendant features a breakaway magnetic clasp for added safety.
Because the fall alert detection pendant works with both the in-home and cellular system, setup couldn’t be easier. As long as you have your base unit plugged in, the fall alert detection pendant will work with your existing system.
- Pricing and value
Because the fall alert detection device can easily be added to an existing plan, pricing is extremely affordable. Simply add $10 a month to your plan. For the cheapest price, make sure you choose a semi-annual plan. The semi-annual in-home plan with fall detection only costs $33.95 a month while the semi-annual cellular plan costs just $39.95 a month.
If you don’t want to commit to an entire year, quarterly and monthly payment plans are available, but they do cost more.
Although Bay Alarm Medical offers great discounts that make their products and services more affordable. Discounts for AARP, AAA, and USAA members are available. They also offer free spousal coverage, as long as you purchase an additional fall detection button.
With a fall detection pendant that is optimized to minimize false alarms, you can rest assured that help is on the way, but only if help is really needed. Even if you aren’t able to communicate directly with the emergency center representative, help will still be dispatched to your location.
Quality service is important to Bay Alarm Medical. They utilize two different service centers that are both CSAA Five Diamond Certified. Technical support and customer service are separate departments from their emergency centers, so help is available immediately, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
To make sure that medical personnel dispatched to your home understand your medical situation, Bay Alarm Medical sends a Vial of Life to each customer that contains your medical information. It is easily attached to the refrigerator with a magnet.
Bay Alarm Medical’s monthly payments are extremely affordable. With one of the smallest and most comfortable waterproof fall detection pendants on the market, Bay Alarm Medical is a good choice for the senior who wants affordable fall protection in the home.
