The Home Use Medi Alarm:
The Medi Alarm for home use has battery backup within the base unit. However, if you are using the Medi Alarm connected to a phone line that is enabled by the NBN, be aware that if your NBN is not working, the Medi Alarm unit will not be working either as it requires an active phone line in order for its operation.
The 3G Fall Detector SOS Pendant Device:
The 3G Fall Detector SOS Pendant Device requires both a GPS and 3G signal for full featured operation. The unit is still capable of functioning as an emergency SOS/Alarm device if you do not have GPS signal and still have 3G signal (features are limited, but direct contact with a carer is possible via ‘talk’ over 3G).
The unit has inbuilt Fall Detection. This has a variety of levels the unit can be set to. We select a common/mid range setting that appears to work very well for our customers. Your circumstances may be different and you may want to have to unit changed to a more or less sensitive setting.
If a fall is detected, the device will vibrate to notify the user that it is about to send an alert to the pre-programmed telephone numbers. The user can press the SOS button to cancel if they wish.
The device registers a ‘fall’ by use of an accelerometer looking for a change in angle and a level of ‘G’ force that an algorithm then uses to activate the feature. The unit is designed to detect a typical fall. Falls that occur where the user may slide slowly down a wall to the ground may or may not register with the unit. There are numerous events and conditions that could prevent the device from operating as expected.
