We are not in a position to take any new orders for the foreseeable future while we review our product offerings with the digital swap over.

All telephone lines in the country have to be changed to digital lines by the line providers by the end of 2025 and our current system is based on analogue telephone lines.

Easy to use personal pendant alarms

By wearing the personal alarm as a wristband or pendant, all they have to do is press the panic button and the alarm system will instantly connect them to our 24-hour response team. Our team will know exactly who they are, where they live and how to contact a nominated family member or friend.

An SOS personal alarm is great for anybody who:

  • Enjoys their freedom of the home and garden, but does not want to be out of reach of assistance
  • Values their independence and does not want family or friends to worry
  • Sometimes feels unsteady on their feet
  • Has a more serious health problem that can be triggered at any time
  • Wants the reassurance of knowing help is at hand when they need it

How it works

SOS alarms are very easy to use. There are no phone numbers to remember or dial – the user simply presses a button.
Below is the step-by-step guide once the panic button has been pressed:

When the button is pressed...
  1. The client presses the button when in need of help or assistance. The personal alarm system will register the button's been pressed and instantly connect them to our response team.
  2. One of our friendly operators will talk to them through the alarm system’s two-way loudspeaker, reassuring them that help is on the way.
  3. We will then immediately contact you or the nominated person (key holder) or the emergency services, if required.
  4. Either you, another key holder, or the emergency services will then be with the client as soon as possible.
Care Services

What is a personal alarm key holder?

A personal alarm key holder can be you or another relative or friend who lives within 30 minutes of your loved one and has their permission to enter their home. Where possible we suggest having two key holders, as they will become the first point of call for our response centre.
