Owning a medical alarm system does not end with the installation, there are some maintenance and testing that are essential to securing your safety and the proper functioning of the device if there is ever an emergency.
As a senior citizen, or any person in need of medical assistance or emergency help, you understand how important a medical alarm system can be in your life. When searching for a device and service, it is important to know that there may need to be some type of regular maintenance that is performed in order to ensure that everything is working properly when you need it.
Over the years, the number of medical alarm systems that are used has increased as people have seen that they have many uses. The systems and the service they provide have so many practical uses, and can even save your life by coordinating your caretakers, family members, and emergency personnel. In certain cases, this service can play a lifesaving role in the life of yourself or a family member.
To ensure that the device is working at all times, and especially when you most need it, regular maintenance is necessary. Check with the company that you have purchased the medical alarm system from to determine what type of repair and maintenance they recommend and with what frequency. Some adjustments and tests might require a professional to come in and perform, and other devices might have a testing feature that you are able to perform on your own to guarantee that everything is working properly.
Please alert your monitoring company before testing the system.
- Monthly pressing of the alert button to test the system
- Verify that the unit is plugged in
- Verify that the phone line is still working
- Go to the furthest extreme of your house and press the alert button
Whatever type of maintenance and repair your system may need, it is best to leave the main decisions up to the professionals who understand what and how the devices work. You never want to perform repairs on the device yourself, without instruction because minor adjustments can alter the performance of your alarm enough to make it ineffective if an emergency were to arise. We would be happy to send you a replacement unit if you feel that your is not working correctly.
