Features in detail.

Press the SOS/Heart help button and the pendant begins to call your contacts in your chosen order. The wearer talks and listens hands free through the pendant. Works everywhere in Australia where there is available Telstra mobile coverage.
Sends help text messages to 6 emergency contacts
As well as calling all contacts the pendant will send a help text message to each person when the contact number is a mobile phone. You can choose to have no calls and text message alerts only. The help message can include up to 100 characters of information. EG: Jennifer Gibson. Falls risk. Medication-Panadol. Spare Key Under Mat. Help Me! If your mobile alarm is in the vicinity of your home charging station then position reported will be by Bluetooth. Otherwise, the position reported will be GPS or wifi location.
Sends the GPS location of the pendant to 6 emergency contacts
Each of the help text messages contain a link to Google Maps with the pendant location via the inbuilt GPS. Location accuracy is approximately 2 metres: similar to most modern smartphones. Uses the latest u-blox 8 GPS chip as well as automatic wifi location finding.
You can have ‘000’ as one of the emergency contacts
If you wish you can make ‘000’ as one of the emergency contacts for the help call. ‘000’ will not receive the help text message though. We also upload the wearers name and address to the emergency services database.

Fall detection text messages sent to emergency contacts

Optional low battery messages sent to emergency contacts
When the battery drops to 20% a voice will announce “Your battery is low. Please recharge your battery”. You can choose to have a ‘low battery’ warning text message send to one of your contacts when the battery falls to 10% charge. The default is that the ‘low battery’ warning is on. This can be turned off by a text message. Don’t worry, when the 20% low battery warning is heard, there are still many hours left that the alarm will work for.
Optional wandering help messages sent to emergency contacts
The Mobile Alarm has a Geo Fencing feature that allows warning text messages to be sent if the wearer strays outside outside a defined area such as 200 metres or 500 metres. Ideal for some people suffering from dementia. Please ask us for more information.
Program the pendant by sending it text messages
After you receive your Mobile Alarm you are able to change settings and turn features on and off by sending simple text messages to the mobile phone number of the pendant.
Showerproof – wear it in the shower or rain
The Mobile Alarm is showerproof so it can be worn in the shower or the rain. It is also dust proof and can be used in dusty or rugged locations with care.
Supplied with convenient charging station
The included charging station allows the wearer to pop in it in there when it needs to be recharged which is usually every 4-5 days, depending on use. Many people keep the charging station plugged in permanently in the lounge room or any room in the home, ready for charging which only takes about 45 minutes (from low battery warning level). Once the alarm is placed in the charging station, a voice will announce “Your mobile alarm is charging”. Have some questions? Read our Frequently Asked Questions here.
