No, a smartphone isn’t required to use Bay Alarm Medical. Simply use each system’s devices to get assistance for emergencies. Each one has its own wireless or landline connection to communicate with the monitoring center. However, if you have a device with GPS location tracking, friends and family members will need a smartphone to track your location on the Bay Alarm Medical app.
