Philips Lifeline’s landline packages require the subscriber to have working landline telephone service in their homes. The landline packages have a lower monthly fee, but keep in mind that you’ll have to keep paying for your phone line (through your utilities company) as well. Landline packages only work in the home, so they are only available with Philips Lifeline HomeSafe packages.
On the other hand, cellular connectivity packages cost more, but they have several benefits: The cellular fee is included in your Philips Lifeline monthly payment, so you don’t have to pay an extra bill. Since cellular connectivity works wirelessly, it works whether you’re at home, in the yard, or out and about. Cellular technology also empowers other important features like GPS location tracking.
