Prime Medical Alert now offers VOIP medical alert systems. With the technology changing, many people don’t have standard landline phone line. This means we can offer VOIP Medical Alert Systems as a common alternative to those who couldn’t have a medical alert system before and want to keep their current phone service.
The difference between VOIP medical alert systems and standard medical alert systems is that one sends digital information rather than information in the analog form. With most VOIP systems, the integrity of the bits of data depends on the Internet connection. If the connection is defective or is being heavily utilized, the integrity of the VOIP data transmissions are degraded. When the data is degraded information like account verification is augmented and leads to an emergency transmission not being received by our central station. With our VOIP medical alert system, the data is sent as data and received in a different manner. This means that we get a clear signal and can respond quickly and effectively.
There are some VOIP providers, which install high quality data networks and work flawlessly with our standard alarms. Ask a representative to know for sure whether you need a VOIP medical alert system or not. Additionally, if you don’t currently have a standard phone line or a VOIP phone line, we have another option for you.
The main reason prospective clients who have a VOIP phone line reject getting a medical alert is because either they tried with a different provider or it seems too difficult to setup and maintain. With our VOIP medical alert system, you simply plug the adapter in, plug the medical alert into the adapter and plug both power supplies in. It’s that easy. Additionally, the VOIP and the standard medical alert components are both tested daily and weekly to ensure functionality. Similar to the standard units, when you press the emergency button, the main unit sends a signal to our central monitoring station. The EMT certified operators respond and are able to efficiently and effectively dispatch the appropriate first responders. Additionally, emergency contacts are notified and proper medical information (which we optionally keep on file), are sent along with the client in distress to aid responders in the critical situation.
