Bay Alarm Medical Packages

Bay Alarm Medical Packages

    In the Home

    Starting at $19.95/mo

    Our take

    If you’re looking for an entry-level in-home medical alert system, start here. This package includes an Emergency Response System that acts as your communication hub: Just press the help button to immediately trigger two-way communication with Bay Alarm’s emergency monitoring center. Also included is your choice of water resistant neck pendant or wristband help button, another way to call for help while you’re around the house. 

     

    In the Home Packages start at $19.95 per month without any equipment or activation fees. If you have a large home or limited mobility, you can add on wall-mounted help buttons and optional fall detection for an additional cost. The In the Home Package can connect to your home’s landline right out of the box. If you don’t have a landline, you can go with cellular connectivity for an additional $10 per month.

    Package Features

    • 24/7 monitoring
    • Landline connectivity or upgrade to cellular
    • In-home emergency response system
    • Neck pendant or wristband help button

    On the Road

    Starting at $29.95/mo

    Our take

    Bay Alarm’s In the Car Package helps alleviate some of the concerns around driving as a senior citizen or someone with a medical condition. The provider teamed up with the company Splitsecnd to create a device that extends 24/7 medical alert monitoring to your car. It’s a portable device small enough to plug into a standard car charger, and it brings push-button emergency assistance and automatic vehicle crash detection right to your dashboard. Pricing starts at $29.95 per month.

    Package Features

    • 24/7 monitoring
    • Cellular connectivity
    • Splitsecnd medical alert device with GPS location tracking and automatic crash detection
    • Option to bundle with in-home and wearable alerts for additional fee

    Bay Alarm On the Go

    Starting at $24.95/mo

    Our take

    Bay Alarm’s On the Go Package centers around its 4G LTE Mobile Help Button. This nifty water resistant device has a built-in cellular connection and GPS monitoring. If you wear it around your neck or keep it in your pocket, you will have push-button access to Bay Alarm’s monitoring centers, and your family or caregivers will have the option to check in on your whereabouts through the mobile app. This has obvious benefits for seniors, but it also represents a solid screen-free safety device for young kids. Monthly fees start at $39.95 per month, but caregiver mobile app access, automatic fall detection and any additional devices all increase your monthly bill.

    Package Features

    • 24/7 monitoring
    • Cellular connectivity
    • 4G LTE GPS Mobile Button
    • Option to add mobile app access, fall detection and in-home devices
