With a variety of call systems and features to choose from, the Independent Living Centre can provide assistance in finding the right product for you.
How does it work?
Introduce freedom and independence into your lifestyle with our emergency call systems in Perth. Comprised of 2 main components; a wireless transmitter and a unit connected to your home phone line. Our personal emergency call systems and alarms allow you to regain your independence at home whilst still offering support if the need arises.
The wireless transmitter, which is usually worn as a pendant, is kept on your person at all times. In the event of an emergency, simply push the button on the wireless transmitter. This will emit a signal to the unit connected to your home phone line and a phone call will automatically be made to a designated support person. This call will be made via a monitored service (a live call from a call centre) or a non-monitored service (autodialed with a pre-recorded message).
Other types of personal alarm systems allow for people to send their GPS location to a support person as a call or SMS however, these emergency systems rely on a mobile phone network rather than your home phone line.
What are the different types of emergency call systems available in Perth?
With a range of emergency call systems available with varying features and functions, you can choose the right system to suit your lifestyle and needs.
A monitored service provides you with an immediate connection to a 24/7 monitored service centre where your personal details are available on file.
If your emergency alarm is triggered, the service activates a pre-arranged response, usually calling a list of support people or contacting emergency services. This emergency call system is best suited for people who may not have friends or family support close by that are able to respond quickly in case of an emergency.
A non-monitored emergency call system relies on having a support network of family and friends that you can call on for assistance in case of an emergency. It is best suited for those who prefer to have friends and family members alerted rather than a monitoring centre. When the alarm is triggered, the unit responds by dialing a series of pre-programmed phone numbers. If the first number dialed is unanswered, the unit will continue to dial the next number down the list until the call is answered.
The support person who answers the phone is required to press a designated button on their phone to acknowledge that the caller (alarm system) requires help. Once this has been done, a recorded message will inform the support person of the emergency.
Mobile Emergency Alarm Call System
With a wide range of mobile emergency alarm call systems available, you can select one that best suits your needs and lifestyle.
