AlarmCare Go, a personal safety monitor, uses satellite GPS tracking and cellular technology so AlarmForce’s operators can confirm users’ locations, detect falls and medical emergencies and report to first responders. Live two‐way voice support is available through the emergency pendant and even when the user is unable to push the button themselves, the device will detect a fall automatically and signal for help, according to the company.
“One of the very significant issues that many adult Canadians currently face is the care for their aging parents,” said Graham Badun, president and CEO AlarmForce. “24/7 care becomes difficult, but through technology AlarmCare Go can monitor your parent’s safety and inform first responders and family members in the event of a fall or other emergency.”
With its GPS‐enabled technology, AlarmCare Go “allows wearers, family members and caregivers to operate their lives with greater independence, freedom and peace of mind”, AlarmForce states.
AlarmForce says it is planning to announce other product enhancements throughout the year ahead in regards to AlarmCare Go capabilities.
