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.
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:
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.
