Concord, California (EastBayDaily) — Bay Alarm Medical (http://www.BayAlarmMedical.com), a leading supplier of home medical alert systems, announced the launch of a new service: a GPS-equipped mobile medical alert system that uses the AT&T cellular network. The GPS Mobile Help Button system offers GPS tracking and one-button calling to Bay Alarm Medical's 24-hour monitoring center.
“This new option comes in response to customer requests,” explains Alan Wu, Bay Alarm Medical's Marketing Manager. "Customers have asked for it in the past, but we waited until we had full confidence in the technology. It was important to us to offer a system that can transmit your precise location, since many of the GPS models on the market don't do that. They can only predict your general area."
The GPS Mobile Help Button system works for up to four days on a single charge and is water-resistant. The lightweight unit is comfortable to wear on a lanyard or clipped to a pocket. Bay Alarm Medical offers flexible monitoring plans with monthly, quarterly, and annual options.
Wu says this is a good solution for people without landlines and a more active lifestyle. While many of Bay Alarm Medical's products focus on home safety, the GPS Mobile Help Button unit is also useful for a number of applications in business settings and outdoors. Security guards, for example, often work alone and patrol multiple locations. Other uses include people who regularly jog or exercise alone outside, and college students on campus who are often out late walking between buildings on campus.
"Our GPS Mobile Help Button system isn't just for people who might have falls or disabilities. It can be beneficial for anyone who wants a little extra security then they're on the go or away from home for long periods of time," says Wu.
