ResponseNow Medical Alert Review

You know the old saying… April showers bring May flowers?  Well we Oregonians know this better than most, and we really appreciate our May flowers!  Here at The Senior List, the other thing we really appreciate is a good deal on a quality product (especially those we believe in).

Belle – A Cellular Medical Alert System

If you're in the market for a cellular medical alert system, you're in luck.  The Senior List has teamed-up with ResponseNow to bring you a great deal on a cellular medical alert system. The medical alert system special is on the popular mobile (cellular) medical alert system called “Belle” (As I write this, I'm staring at our demo unit).

Belle cellular medical alert has a great battery life

The Belle cellular medical alert system allows the user to go just about anywhere they want to.  Since it's connected to a cellular network (AT&T), you're free to take Belle out into the yard, to the grocery store, or even to the movies.  One of the great things about the Belle cellular medical alert system is the battery life.  It will last 30 days between charges, which is one of the best in it's class.

Belle is a two-way voice emergency alert pendant that connects users to help anywhere in the US there is 3G AT&T coverage. Belle is shower-safe, and its rechargeable battery lasts up to 30 days per charge.cellular medical alert

In-Home Medical Alert Option

ResponseNow in-home medical alert systemThe tethered in-home option is perfect for those who spend much of their time in or around the home. This unit connects to a home telephone line, and comes with a waterproof pendant (necklace or wrist option).  *If a person has no home-line, there is a cellular option.  The base station has a range of 600 feet.  This is the old-school (traditional) pendant style medical alert system (I've fallen and I can't get up).


There is no equipment to buy and there is a 30 day money back guarantee.  The  cost of the in-home option is $24.95/month with an annual plan, $27.95/month with a quarterly plan and $29.95/month for a monthly plan.  Free shipping is offered for the quarterly and annual plan.  An additional pendant can be added for $2.95/month.

The Bottom Line

If you're looking to purchase a medical alert system from a company you can trust, ResponseNow will fit that bill.  We love their cellular medical alert option (Belle) and think it may be the best mobile alert system on the market.

We've also had a discussion with ownership about long-term (binding) contracts, and you'll be allowed to cancel at anytime.  All this adds up to value in our eyes. We give ResponseNow 2-thumbs-up.


  1. I just got my belle response. I am wondering if it has fall or seizure response without pushing the button?..

    1. Hi Brenda, There are two versions of the Belle, the Belle+ does have fall detection, if you aren’t sure which one you have, check with your medical alert company.

  2. Have had mine now 2 months,, Ive accidentally called 3x as the string n device hang right where I stand at the sink,, I agree that cord is horrid,, bet I end up choking myself with the damn thing,,, it took them a bit to answer but they knew who I was and verified that I was ok,,, I also got the monthly price cheaper after I called them telling them I was cancelling!

  3. I tested my system often as recommended however most of the time it takes 5-7 rings before someone answers. Also I am in a nursing home now where do I return the belle?

  4. Thanks to Monica for her assistance with the clarity I needed to understand my alert system. Monica realized immediately my challenge was I had not read the information for usage of the equipment. However, it was reassuring to know my contact information was on file with the correct contact names and numbers. Monica suggested the information I needed to read.

    Thanks Monica.

  5. I’ve had Belle for a few years now and I won’t recommend it to anyone. It wouldn’t charge on the base. They sent a second base. No one ever called to see if that base was working properly. And it did for a very short while. Then it stopped charging on the base again. I have lived with a book on top of it or a hefty rubber band holding it down to get it to charge. I want to return it and don’t even know who to contact. I used it successfully once but otherwise it was not charged when I fell. Cumbersome to wear, difficult to charge, company never calls to check for a good connection… I’m done. Please just tell me where to send it and how to stop my payments.

      1. Hi there. The only writing of any kind is “BELLE, used for Belle”! Redundant, I know. No words or marks of any kind on the pendant or the charging base. I’ve had a stroke and don’t remember where I got it from. My bank couldn’t locate info on my statement but I know it’s on auto pay. One base didn’t charge so I called (somehow I found a number) and they sent a second base that didn’t charge.

        1. Hi Carolyn, I would recommend getting in touch with Freeus- they manufacture the Belle and should be able to help- I found a customer service phone number, (888) 924-1026. I hope that helps, Have a nice Thanksgiving!

  6. I just received mine and made my first test call. It goes straight to 911 but it doesn’t give them a name or location so if you cannot speak, there is no way for any help to arrive. I can use my cell phone if I’m conscious and save the monthly fee. They also billed me from the day I ordered it which was almost two weeks from when I received it. I’m sending it back and looking for another more reliable service.

  7. Hi I was wondering on how to get a belle life alert wireless pendent to wear since I have a pacemaker .

    Give me a call at [phone number redacted-admin] and leave message so I can call back I am in Finksburg Maryland

  8. This company has deceptive sales tactics. I called a completely different agency from work and was connected to Belle. I was caught off guard and agreed to try this unit. It was mailed to me. I felt the alarm for the neck was out dated and very bulky. I never activated the system as I planned to return it. Out of no where I received a call from monitor asking me if I was ok. I also have compared with other systems and feel Belle is over priced. I have mailed this product back. Just want other people to be sure before they make this purchase.

  9. I’ve had this unit for about four months now and I charge it once a month as recommended by my provider and have only tested it twice, but as far as I can tell it has worked flawlessly each time I tested it. I’m still not sure if it has fall detection in spite of assurances by the people who responded to my test calls. I can find no reference to that in the manual. Any information would be appreciated.
