Medical Alerts

Worry-free independence

Every person should be able to live at home independently, safely, and securely. If you or a loved one worry about a medical condition happening at home, Heartland Security offers 2 types of medical alert systems: home-based medical alerts and GPS medical alerts.

Home-Based Medical Alerts

Our home-based medical alerts (Personal Emergency Reporting Systems, or PERS) are connected to your home phone line, and a single button push connects you to a highly trained dispatcher who is there to help, 24/7. No landline? No problem. We have an option that uses a cellular communicator and works on a cellular tower system (separate from your cell phone).

A Heartland Security medical alert system can be installed temporarily or permanently; there are no long-term contracts. The system contains two simple parts: a base unit and a wireless emergency button in a water-resistant pendant that you wear around the neck or on the wrist. Press a button on either unit for immediate help. A Heartland Security medical alert is:

  • Personalized – you pre-select who you want the dispatcher to call for specific situations.
  • Flexible – you can choose a wireless button on a neck pendant or wristband. Both are water resistant so you are even protected when you bathe.
  • Dependable – the Heartland Security medical alert system is a UL-certified home healthcare signaling device. Our system is built with the latest in long-range wireless technology.

How it works

  1. Wear the Pendant: Press the button on the base unit or pendant to receive assistance.
  2. Get Immediate Contact: The base unit immediately calls the response center, and a trained response center dispatcher talks to you directly through the base unit to assess your condition and get you the help you need.
  3. Receive the Help You Specify: Depending on the situation, the response center dispatcher will call the designated person you specify, whether a family member, friend, neighbor, or emergency personnel.

GPS Medical Alerts

Our SentryPal Mobile Personal Emergency Response Systems, or GPS medical alerts, use the AT&T cellular network and satellites to place a call/give a location to our response center when the button is pushed. It is dependent on the cellular/satellite coverage in the area.

A SentryPal GPS medical alert system can be installed temporarily or permanently; there are no long-term contracts. The pager-like unit can be worn on a lanyard or in a belt-clip holder. The unit must be charged every night and should be tested monthly.
