All of our alert pendants work wherever a mobile phone would work. That's why they are ideal for active or independent seniors who want the availability of emergency assistance with the push of a button.
With the fall detector models, an alert is automatically sent to your emergency contacts advising them that you have fallen. It also shows your location.
They all feature GPS capabilities offering remote monitoring by caring family & friends.
The full range of Mobile Alert pendants work using the same cell network technology as used in mobile phones, just less complicated.
Medical emergencies such as falls, heart attacks, strokes, security concerns or just finding a loved one, are only some of the reasons why people rely on Mobile-Alert for peace of mind.
"Finally. . . an ALERT PENDANT
that works anywhere."

Like many new technologies, it's not perfect. Our experience is that fall detection works 90-95% of the time. When a fall is detected, the device will beep and vibrate for a period of time before sending the emergency text messages. The device will automatically notify the contacts that a fall may have occurred.
While the unit is beeping after what may or may not have been a fall, the user can abort the fall alarm messages by pressing the SOS button briefly. If the user does not cancel the alert, then false alarms will result.
Occasionally, the beeping may start suddenly when the user has not fallen which is bewildering to the user. The sensitivity setting might be the issue but more often than not, we are finding that this developing technology is not foolproof.
The good news is that it's rare to lose consciousness due to a fall. As long as the user can press a single button, help is available.
Cell Network Update
Telstra announced that they will discontinue their 2G (second generation) service on 1 December 2016.
Optus announced they will cease their 2G service on 1 April 2017.
Vodafone has no plans to end their 2G service.
Eventually, the 2G network will go the way of vinyl records and video cassettes as new technology replaces the old. This SIM card we recommend using in 2G devices is CMobile because it uses Vodafone and the calling cost is only 12¢ a minute and 12¢ per text.
The most extensively developed network in Australia at present is for 3G devices.
All 3 phone service providers cover metropolitan areas with 2G and 3G services. It's primarily in rural and remote areas where it may be necessary for you to have a 3G device. Otherwise, you can save money by purchasing a 2G unit.
