Prime Medical Alert is an Arizona-based company offering a variety of state-of-the-art medical alert systems to customers across the United States. The company has an A+ accreditation from the Better Business Bureau and has been in business for a number of years, staking its claim on the ever-growing personal security industry and helping thousands of people get the help they need following a trip or fall inside and outside of their home.
About Prime Medical Alert
You don't need a home phone line to install any of the Prime Medical Alert systems. Free shipping is also provided on all orders and there are no long-term contracts, which means you won't be tied down to expensive and protracted purchases. There are no activation fees or startup fees and some packages will even give you a free lockbox.
A lockbox is a secure box that contains a key to your door and is fixed to a secure location outside of your home. In the event of an accident, the medical alert system will trigger an emergency response and the first responders will be given the lockbox code, allowing them to gain access without resorting to breaking a door or window.
If your Prime Medical Alert system malfunctions at any time, you can simply send it back and a replacement will be shipped out to you.
Prime Medical Alert Products
All of Prime's products are designed to connect you directly to an operator, who can then send the first responders to help you out. These teams function in the same way as a 911 facility, and instead of simply dialing 911 and requesting the police department or fire department, the operators do the work for you, saving some vital seconds by sending the first responders directly.
The company has a few different products to compare and contrast:
The Linear Personal Emergency Response Unit
A simple unit that is pre-programmed to work right out of the box. Simply connect it to your home phone line and plug it in. It comes with a pendant that connects to the base unit and can be worn as a bracelet and necklace attachment.
The batteries on these pedants are guaranteed to last for at least 3 years and they are monitored, with replacements sent as soon as they are about to expire. The actual unit connects to a power source, but it also has a 32-hour backup battery in the event of a blackout.
Climax Fall Detection Medical Alert
A landline or cellular medical alert device that comes bundled with automatic fall detection, ensuring you get the help you need when you fall and are unable to call for help. There is an SOS button as well, but the fall detection works without this. It uses advanced accelerometers to detect when you have fallen and sends first responders to help you.
NextAlert II: Automatic Fall Detection System
A waterproof, durable emergency button that you carry around with you. In the event of an accident, all you need to do is press the SOS button. It includes automatic fall detection to trigger a response when you have a fall, and while it's battery-operated, its limited functionality means it doesn't require frequent charging.
The LifeSentry is the biggest and arguably the best medical alert system in the Prime Medical Alert range. It contains a base unit and a wearable pendant through which you can speak to the emergency operators. The LifeSentry works throughout your house and is designed to cover houses up to 5,000 square feet in size.
It has a long battery life and a 24-hour backup battery. The pendant is also waterproof, so you can take it into the shower with you.
