Product Review: Philips Lifeline with Auto Alert
Philips Lifeline with AutoAlert utilizes the pendant form factor, and alerts a call center (with integrated fall detection technology) if the user cannot. They now offer a number of integrated medical alert system product accessories for seniors including:
- The traditional Lifeline device/pendant
- The traditional Lifeline alert device/wristband
- A Lifeline pendant with AutoAlert (Fall Detection)
- A base station that integrates with the above mobile devices
- An cordless phone that integrates with their medical alert services
The Bottom Line: Philips Lifeline w/ Auto Alert
The integrated options (noted above) make them one of the leaders in the medical alert/PERS arena. Their website says that monthly service fees start at a “little more than a dollar a day”. Actual cost is $40 per month for standard medical alert (pendant and intercom), and $53 per month for the fall detection device. We spoke with their customer service personnel and they were quite professional.
