HOME & AWAY GPS Medical Alert System Review

The HOME & AWAY System is a medical alert system with cellular GPS location technology, which gives the owner freedom to move around easily anywhere in the United States. 

The system comes with mobile device, a cradle charger and an additional medical alert button with the option to choose between wrist button or neck pendant. The mobile GPS device has satellite technology and works with the reliable AT&T Wireless cellular network that provides coverage across the country. It also has location mapping available which lets the emergency responders in your location to quickly respond to your request.

When you press the button in an emergency, you’ll be immediately connected with an EMT trained monitoring agent who will immediately know your history and background to help you with your needs in a timely manner. Unlike calling 911 from a cell phone, our monitoring center agents will know who you are, where you are, and whom to contact on your behalf.

The mobile medical alert device has a 2 way voice communicator and can be activated by pressing the large emergency button, or by pressing the wrist/pendant button up to 600 feet away from the mobile device.  For example, you may be in the shower and need help – so you would press the waterproof button you are wearing on your wrist or around your neck, and it would signal the mobile device while it is charging in another part of the home.  The voice range is approximately 30 feet away from the mobile unit to be heard.  If the monitoring center agents can’t hear you, or you are unable to talk, they will follow a pre-set protocol to call a neighbor, family member, or emergency services.

Check out what real customers are saying about this unit:


“I am 87 years old and very healthy and independent. However, my beloved family and friends have been after me for several years to order one of these life saving devices. I have to admit, the unit does give me peace of mind. Yours is the only one we found out about that has an "outside" monitor as well. You have a marvelous product that will certainly be of service to many senior people. Thank you again for your kindness.”
Elizabeth F from Escondido, CA
