Key Features

Bay Alarm Medical’s alert systems work to help those at risk of injuring themselves get in quick and easy contact with emergency services if necessary, no matter where they are — in their home, in their car or out and about.

While their alarm systems cater primarily to senior citizens, they recommend their alarm systems to all people who fall into any of the following categories:

When you purchase an in-home medical alert system from Bay Alarm Medical, you get a wearable, water-proof device (a necklace or wristband) that can connect you to their call center at the touch of a button in 45 seconds or less. If you need coverage away from home, they offer a Mobile GPS Device that can be worn around the neck on a lanyard, or in a pouch in your purse or on a belt clip.

You can also opt for devices with Automatic Fall Detection which, in the event of a fall, will automatically connect you to Bay Alarm Medical’s call center.

The batteries in standard devices can last up to five years, while devices equipped with Automatic Fall Detection have a battery life of up to two years. That said, Bay Alarm Medical still recommends weekly testing to ensure that the battery is still operational.

It also helps that, in the event of a blackout or power outage, their system will continue to run for up to 32 hours. After the power returns, the battery will automatically recharge itself.

And to ensure that you receive the attention you need even in the case that you can’t speak, Bay Alarm also includes with every system a Vial of Life – a pamphlet to be filled out by you containing your complete medical information (allergies, medications, etc.) that emergency personnel can reference during an emergency.

With a clear understanding of the different components of your bay Alarm Medical system, below is an explanation of they work together to protect you:

  1. Push Button: In the event that an emergency happens, just push your emergency medical alert button.
  2. Bay Alarm Medical Answers: A trained, 24/7 live operator will respond to you in less than a minute to speak to you over the console and make sure you're taken care of.
  3. They Respond: They'll then contact friends, family, neighbors, and if necessary, your local 911 emergency services.

For their In-Home systems, all you need to install your system is a standard electrical outlet and a standard phone jack. The medical alert system is configured to share a phone jack with an existing phone so you don’t have to move anything. Beyond this, it’s a matter of wearing your device, placing your Base Unit, and turning on your system.

For their GPS systems, the process is even simpler, requiring you to simply turn on your system and wear your tracking device.

You can also choose to download their Account Manager App, which you and caretakers can use to update addresses, review billing history, and get updates on your account status.
