Fall Alert Your Guide to Medical Alerts

Back up batteries in senior fall alert devices

by admin on October 14, 2011

While shopping around you will notice that most fall alert devices come with a back up battery. This battery allows your senior fall alert to have the power it needs during a power outage. This does not guarantee that you will have phone service though! Depending on your phone service your home telephone may not work during a power outage. While a standard landline phone service will work without power, a cable package service will not. Your cable phone is hooked directly into your modem. If the power goes out, your modem no longer works, and your senior fall alert will not be able to connect you to your monitoring center. If power outages are common in your area and you are looking into these fall alert devices, consider changing your home phone service back to a standard landline. You will have a more reliable phone and fall alert service!
