For years, Lifeline24 has provided the best in telecare technology, giving alarm users and their families unbeatable peace of mind. Now, thanks to developments in alarm technology, we are happy to offer a brand new, cutting edge device: the GO GPS alarm. This is the first GPS-enabled alarm from Lifeline24, giving you peace of mind wherever you go. Today's article will tell you everything you need to know about the GO GPS alarm.
What is the GO GPS Alarm?
As you might know, our standard Lifeline Vi alarm has an impressive range of 100 metres, making it perfect for use in the home and garden. This is perfectly suitable for lots of people. But what about the times when you need to pop to the shops or visit a friend?
Our GPS Alarms are the perfect solution for people who like to get out and about. With a GPS alarm, you can access our platinum service, accredited by industry body the TSA, outside your home. A GPS Alarm is also a great reassurance for people with conditions like diabetes and epilepsy, who may be prone to seizures or fainting.
Now let's take a look at the GO GPS Alarm's key features.
Naturally, the GO GPS Alarm features a state of the art GPS locator. Therefore, when you activate the alarm, our Response Team can quickly send assistance to your precise location. A GPS alarm can give you protection and peace of mind both at home and on the go.
No Landline Necessary
So far, most Lifeline alarms have required a landline connection. However, the GO GPS Alarm is able to connect to the mobile phone network. Whether you are at home or out and about, you will be able to get help from our Response Team 24 hours a day. Therefore, the GO GPS Alarm is also great for the growing number of people without a landline connection at home.
Speaker & Microphone
When you activate your GO GPS Alarm in an emergency, you will hear a reassuring voice alert. This lets you know that your alert is being received by our Response Team and help will soon be on the way.
The GO features a built-in speaker and microphone, which allows you to communicate with the Response Team. They will ask you for details of what has happened, to help them understand how best to assist you. For example, they might ask whether you are injured and require medical assistance, or whether you just need some help getting back on your feet.
If you have a fall or need help in an emergency, raising an alert with the GO GPS alarm couldn't be simpler. You only need to press and hold both buttons at the same time (one button on the front and another on the back of the device). The Emergency Response Team will receive this alert, assess the situation and arrange whatever help you need. Our expert Response Team is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Once your GO GPS Alarm is set up, you should press and hold these buttons to make a test call. This lets you (and us) know that everything is in perfect working order.
Compact and Lightweight
The GO GPS Alarm is sleek, stylish and portable. Weighing in at just 33 grams, you can wear it comfortably and discreetly wherever you go. You can choose whether to wear it around your neck as a pendant or attach it to a keyring. The alarm comes with both a hypoallergenic stainless steel chain and a keyring attachment.
No Set-Up Needed
There is no complicated set-up or installation with the GO GPS Alarm. Once you've taken it out of the box, firstly place it onto the provided charging station. It will be fully charged in just a couple of hours. Then, simply press and hold the two buttons (one on the front and one on the back) to make a test call. Our Response Team will communicate with you via the built-in speaker and let you know that everything is in perfect working order. It's as simple as that.
Once fully charged, the GO GPS can last 1-2 months between charges with standard use.
