Lightweight and Stylish
The ProTec is the smallest pendant in our range and comes in a choice of colours. Comfortable to wear on either the lanyard provided or with your favourite chain.
Calls and Messages up to 5 Emergency Contacts
When help is needed simply press and hold the SOS for 2 seconds until it vibrates. The ProTec will first message each of your contacts saying you need help and give them a link showing your location on Google Maps. It will then call each contact in turn until one of them responds by pressing No. 1 on their phone keypad. If answered by voice mail the pendant will hang up and call the next number.
000 can also be programmed as one of the emergency numbers.
Once answered the user can speak with their contact directly – just as with a mobile phone. As the sound is loud it is not necessary to have the pendant next to your ear.
Automatic Fall Detection
Each ProTec has an automatic fall alert system. If the device senses what may have been a fall, an emergency text is sent to each contact. However before the texts are sent, a loud tune sounds for 20 seconds. If it is a false alarm, it can be aborted with a short press of the SOS button.
As well as a text alerts, calls can also be programmed if required.
Fall Detection can easily be turned off or on.
Family or friends can see the location of the ProTec and its user by simply sending the text LOC to the phone number of the pendant. A reply text will give a link to Google Maps showing the location.
As with all GPS devices they require a straight line view to the satellites, ideally outdoors. If the user is inside a large building or shopping centre then the last known location will be shown.
Low Battery Alert
When the battery percentage remaining drops down to only 2-3 hours of charge remaining, a warning text can be programmed to be sent to the emergency contacts.
2-Way Voice Communication
Once answered the user can speak with their contact directly – just as with a mobile phone. As the sound is loud, the pendant doesn’t need to be held next to your ear. The volume can be adjusted using the side buttons.
Avoiding unwanted Incoming Calls
When the ProTec’s phone number is called it will answer automatically. If you prefer, the ProTec can be programmed to either:
- Allow anyone who knows the phone number to call and speak to the user. This is useful if other friends and family would like to contact the user.
- Allow only the emergency contacts to call and speak to the user. This blocks unwanted scam calls.
Speed Dial Option
The small side button can be used to speed dial one of the emergency contacts. It can be a family member/friend or perhaps dial directly through to 000.
Easy to Recharge
Each ProTec comes with it’s own easy to use charging cradle. Simply place the pendant in this cradle each night to keep the battery fully charged. When placed in the cradle, a red light will appear on the front of the cradle. This will dim or go out once the pendant is fully charged. It is fine to leave the pendant in the cradle overnight.
Important: Always take the pendant with you if getting up during the night as this is a time when people are most vulnerable to falls.
