Senior Safety is not an instantly recognizable name comparable to the likes of ADT, Medical Guardian, Bay Alarm, and MobileHelp, but it is an established brand that has been around since 1991. The difference is that it doesn't have the backing of a massive corporation and a sizeable advertising budget, so it tends to keep things relatively simple in that department.
That doesn't make its products or services any less viable, though, and as you will see in this Senior Safety review, it has some affordable and well-made medical alert systems regardless.
Senior Safety Products
Senior Safety has two alert systems, one for inside the home and one for outside. Both options come with waterproof help buttons that instantly connect you to an emergency response system, and they also have a 30-day money-back guarantee. Additionally, they have nationwide coverage and there are no long-term contracts or hefty activation costs.
If you're a new customer purchasing a Senior Safety medical alert system, you are entitled to one of two free gifts: A prepaid Visa with $25 or a lockbox said to be worth $45. There are certainly lockboxes priced at $45, but you can usually get a decent one for less than $30. With that in mind, it's free, so we're not complaining.
The Home Alert landline system has a massive range of 1,000 feet, which should cover most of your house and yard. It offers crystal clear communication and features a "family check in" function to provide your loved ones with some much-needed peace of mind.
Fall detection is available for $10 extra per month and the basic unit costs only $19 per month. Alternatively, you can pay $29 for the no-landline unit. Both of these prices are listed as limited time offers, so they are subject to change.
Mobile Go Alert
A small, shatterproof medical alert system that you can take with you anywhere you go. It is powered by AT&T cellular technology, so it doesn't require a landline and will work as long as the unit is nearby. It's small and portable, so it can be dropped into a pocket, a bag, or worn around your neck. It costs only $30 per month and you can add automatic fall detection for an additional $10.
Senior Safety sells big blue help buttons that you can install in high-risk areas. These buttons are designed to be used in combination with the company's medical alert systems and will contact the operations team when pressed. Many companies charge you a few extra dollars a month to add these buttons to your contract, but Senior Safety charges a flat $70, which drops to $50 if you use a new customer promotional code.
As a result, these buttons are cheaper for customers who use the service for at least 18 months. It's hard to imagine how a little plastic button could be worth $50, and it's even harder to imagine that this is one of the cheapest options, but you're essentially paying for the added connection and the increased likelihood that you will make an emergency call.
