Fall Alert Your Guide to Medical Alerts

The best place to put medical alert systems in your home

by admin on September 20, 2011

Most medical alert companies recommend plugging their system into a wall phone jack that is centrally located in your home. Doing so will allow the speaker on the medical alert to reach its full potential – and this should allow you to speak back and forth with the operator throughout your entire home. If you have a smaller home (only 1 or 2 bedrooms on one story) you won’t need to worry about finding the perfect spot. In home’s that are around or under 1500 sq ft your medical alert should work fine wherever you place it.

I suggest avoiding having medical alert systems in the kitchen. There are a lot of noises (your fridge, washing machine, etc) that can make it tougher for the medical alert operator to hear you properly. Because of the sensitive microphone used in medical alert systems, a small constant noise very close to the speaker box can make it hard to hear your voice elsewhere in the home. The best thing you can do is test your system often – that way if there are any issues with the location of your medical alert you will find it out in a non-emergency situation.
