Only AFGE members enjoy the most aggressively discounted pricing ADT has to offer for Personal Emergency Response systems! Unlike other similar offerings on the market, AFGE members do not have to purchase any hardware to receive this special low pricing.
The Personal Emergency Response System (also known as a medical alert system) is a device and accessories that provide protection around the clock with just a push of the pendent or wristband help button. Communication with ADT Health’s monitoring center is automatically initiated through the two-way speakerphone on the base unit that enables our emergency operators to send emergency help as needed. The systems are easy to setup and simple to use.
Personal Emergency Response Systems are intended for people of all ages and backgrounds. From children, college students, working professionals and retirees all find value and peace of mind knowing that live help is available with just one button push to help keep them safe.
These systems come with a variety of wristband or pendant accessories to choose from. Optional Fall detection pendants are available. This pendent has the capability to detect when one has fallen and automatically communicates with the ADT Health monitoring center on the user’s behalf for assistance.
These ADT Health solutions are available in either an in-home or mobile variety to best suit an individual’s lifestyle and needs:
This system utilizes a telephone landline for two-way communication with the ADT Health Monitoring Center. It provides around the clock monitoring services with access to live help with just a push of the pendent or bracelet help button. This solution provides coverage up to 300 feet between the base station and the bracelet or pendent. It includes battery backup and well as high and low temperature monitoring, alerting the ADT Health call center when temperature extremes are exceeded.
Medical Alert Basic is ideal for those who remain in their home the majority of the time.
This system is just like the Basic In-home System except that this solution does not require a landline! It still provides the same level of service with around the clock emergency services with just a push of the pendent or bracelet help button. This solution provides extended range of up to 600 feet between the base station and the bracelet or pendent. It includes a digital display with date, time, battery meter and volume control. It also includes battery backup and well as high and low temperature monitoring, alerting the ADT Health call center when temperature extremes are exceeded. This solution can be combined with optional fall detection pendant for added protection.
Medical Alert Basic is best suited for those who are active in and around their home, yard or garden the majority of the time.
On-The-Go Mobile System
The best option yet! With integrated state of the art GPS technology, the On-The-Go system offers coast-to-coast protection with emergency assistance and optional fall detection services. The GPS enabled technology will also be able to assist the user even if they do not know their exact location. Compact and light weight, the On-The-Go unit is designed to be easily carried in one’s purse, pocket or worn on a belt with the complementary carrying case.
On-The-Go mobile system is ideal for those who are active and drive/travel from home alone, whether across town or across the country.
