Calls and Messages up to 8 Emergency Contacts
When the SOS button is pressed, the unit vibrates, beeps and displays SOS on the screen. The device then calls emergency contact #1. If that person answers, they hear on their phone, “Press 1 on your phone keypad to continue.” This message will play up to three times until the 1 on the keypad is pressed. If 1 is not pressed, then in 25 seconds, the call will automatically disconnect, and emergency contact #2 will receive the next call. This pattern will continue through all of up to eight emergency contacts, and then the cycle will repeat until someone eventually answers the phone. Even if that means all the emergency contacts are scrolled through several times before someone finally answers.
After the completion of an answered call, a text is sent with a link to Google Maps showing the user's GPS location.
If the device senses what may have been a fall, the device will beep loudly for 20 seconds, during which time the user may abort the fall alert before any calls or text messages are sent by pressing both side buttons simultaneously. If the user does not cancel the fall alert during the 20 second period, the device will automatically begin the sequence of calls to each of the emergency contacts.
Simple Charge & extended standby time
Recharging the Guardian MediFone is simple with the included charging cradle. An optional charging method is with a Qi wireless charging technology as some new cars come equipped with. A neck lanyard is standard while optional accessories include a well-designed belt pouch and wristband. Advanced technology extends standby time such that recharging is necessary weekly rather than daily as presently required for many alert pendants.
Speed Dial up to 8 Contacts
The reason for the MediFone name is because, in addition to sequential calling of contacts when the SOS button is pressed, each of the 8 contacts can be speed dialled individually. The user is able to scroll through the names of contacts and choose one to call as they would in a phone’s address book. When any of the programmed contacts call the MediFone, their name appears on the screen.
Its display screen shows cell signal strength, battery percentage, date and time. Other basic messages displayed include: “SOS”, “Fall Alert”, SOS or Fall Alert Cancelled, and the names of up to eight emergency contacts.
