Review: The Alert 1 Medical Alert For Seniors
Alert 1 (formally known as AlertOne) provides an economical choice for traditional Medical Alert Systems. With over 250,000 families having used the Alert 1 to date, it would seem that they have a lot of experience to draw from. Alert 1 offers pendant necklace and wristband alert button (options) as well as extra room and hallway buttons. In addition to the traditional medical alert system offered by Alert 1, they have added a Fall Detection and Cellular option to the list of products to choose from.
Alert 1 Fall Detection
The fall detection option from Alert 1 is a small comfortable pendant that boasts a two-year battery life span and is 100% waterproof. The pendant works up to 600 feet from the base unit, so make sure to place the base unit in a central area that reaches all bathrooms and other high fall-risk areas. A one-time activation fee of $35, monthly plans start at $30.95.
Alert 1 Mobile (Cellular) Option
The cellular option from Alert 1 is called the Kelsi; a mobile medical alarm that gets help with the push of a button anywhere in the U.S. So, for those who are not home-bound, this discreet option requires no base station. It also has a microphone and speaker to enable two-way communication and is waterproof. The battery works for up to 2 months on a single charge, which is longer than other mobile options we have seen. No equipment to purchase, the Kelsi has a one-time activation fee of $50 and monthly plans start at $35.95.
The Bottom Line: Alert 1
A good choice for traditional, fall detection, and cellular medical alert technology. No equipment to purchase and no long-term contracts make this well established company someone to look at when making the choice of medical alert systems.
