I was recently working with a woman who wanted her husband to be able to stay at home safely with an emergency alert system, but they only had a cellphone and could not afford another monthly fee. We decided to try a combination of the Freedom Alert with the X-Link Bluetooth Adapter.
The Freedom Alert is a no monthly fee alerting system that can call up to 4 numbers (usually friends and family members) and 911 if desired. It has a water-resistant two-way pendant with a 600-foot range. It also comes in a switch adapted model. On its own, it only works with landlines; however, if you pair it with the XLink Bluetooth adapter, it can work with your cell phone. Keep in mind that even though it works with a cellphone, it is only for use within the home.
To set this up:
This Bluetooth-Freedom Alert system was set up for this family and is working well. The husband can now stay at home safely, which gives the wife peace of mind while she runs errands. If you would like more information on this system call us a 1-800-895-4728 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, the Assistive Technology Services company was very responsive and helpful during the setup of this system.
