What Sets MobileHelp Apart?

MobileHelp’s motto is “Help when and where you need it.” This notion is reflected in the medical alert provider’s wide array of products, packages, features and pricing structures. They offer many solutions that instantly connect seniors with MobileHelp’s professional monitoring centers during an emergency. Since there’s so many options, you’re likely to find one that fits your lifestyle and budget.

MobileHelp sorts their offerings into in-home solutions, on-the-go options, and complete protection systems that offer peace of mind both in and out of the home. With any of these, simply signal for help and an operator will respond, assess the situation, and contact the appropriate help for you: a neighbor, family member, or emergency services.

Pros

  • Many device and package options
  • Savings when paid quarterly, semi-annually or annually
  • No upfront equipment fee for most packages

Cons

  • Fall detection costs extra
  • Packages and pricing change frequently

Top MobileHelp Features

  • No Upfront Equipment Cost

    None of MobileHelp’s packages require an upfront payment for equipment. You’ll only be expected to pay for monitoring.

  • No Landline Required

    If you don’t have a landline, it’s no problem. MobileHelp provides cellular coverage for its systems through AT&T.

  • No Long-Term Contracts

    With MobileHelp, you don’t have to sign any long-term contracts for monitoring. Choose between annual, semi-annual, quarterly, or monthly monitoring plans.

MobileHelp Packages

  • Classic

    Starting at
    $19.95/mo

    Our Take

    This package is MobileHelp’s basic entry-level medical alert system. Starting at $19.95 per month for 24/7 professional monitoring, the MobileSafe Classic package is very competitively priced compared to similarly equipped packages from other leading medical alert providers. 

     

    You don’t need a landline phone for the Classic package, since the base station has built-in cellular connectivity and two-way communication. You can call emergency services directly from the base station, or you can press the help button on your neck pendant or wristband (included). You also have the option to add automatic fall detection to this system by adding a Fall Detection pendant, which costs an additional $10 per month for monitoring.

    Package Features

    • 24/7 monitoring
    • Cellular connection
    • MobileHelp cellular base station
    • 1 neck pendant or wristband help button
    • Lockbox for emergency responder access
  • Wired Home

    Starting at
    $24.95/mo

    Our Take

    If you have an active landline phone, the Wired Home package is likely MobileHelp’s best selection for at-home monitoring. This system is slightly more expensive than the Classic package, but it’s a better choice if there’s spotty cellular coverage in your area, or if you want a larger radius in which your wearable monitoring devices will work. While the Classic package’s wearable devices work within 600 feet of the base station, the Wired Home package has a coverage area up to 1,300 feet. The Wired Home package starts at $24.95/month.

    Package Features

    • 24/7 monitoring
    • Landline connection
    • Landline-ready base station
    • Neck pendant or wristband with help button
    • Lockbox for emergency responder access
  • MobileHelp Solo

    Starting at
    $37.95/mo

    Our Take

    MobileHelp’s Solo package is a streamlined device bundle that works whether you’re at home or away. Instead of a base station, you get a Mobile Device with two-way communication, which you can bring with you wherever you go. Even better, the Mobile Device has built-in GPS location tracking so help can always find you.

     

    Thanks to its cellular connectivity, the Solo package works anywhere that AT&T cell towers can reach. A wearable help button is also included; you can use it to call for help as long as you’re within range of the Mobile Device (approximately 350 feet). The MobileHelp Solo package starts at $37.95 per month; add an additional $10 per month if you want automatic fall detection.

    Package Features

    • 24/7 monitoring
    • Cellular connection
    • Mobile Device with two-way communication & GPS tracking
    • Neck pendant or wristband with help button
    • Lockbox
  • Duo

    Starting at
    $41.95/mo

    Our Take

    This package gives you the convenience of both an in-home cellular base station and a Mobile Device with GPS tracking and two-way communication, plus a wearable help button. This increases your coverage area and helps ensure that you’re always within range of your devices, so you can rest assured that you can call for help whenever and wherever you need to. Monitoring starts at $41.95/mo.

    Package Features

    • 24/7 monitoring
    • Cellular connection
    • MobileHelp cellular base station
    • Mobile Device with two-way communication & GPS tracking
    • Neck pendant or wristband with help button
    • Lockbox
  • Mobile Duo

    Starting at
    $44.95/mo

    Our Take

    If having more than one Mobile Device will serve you better than an in-home base station will, then MobileHelp has a package for that too. This bundle offers two Mobile Devices with GPS tracking and two-way communication, perfect for providing back-up options or monitoring both you and your spouse. Costs start at $44.95 per month, which is nearly a 2-for-1 value compared to the Solo package. Again, automatic fall detection requires an extra monthly fee.

    Unique Details

    • 24/7 monitoring
    • Cellular connection
    • 2 Mobile Devices with two-way communication & GPS tracking
    • Neck pendant or wristband with help button

MobileHelp Equipment and Features

  • MobileHelp Base Station

    MobileHelp base stations are available with either landline or cellular connectivity. Either option includes two-way communication, allowing you to contact an emergency operator.

  • Mobile Device

    The MobileHelp Device functions similar to the cellular base station. Made for those on-the-go, this device also features two-way communication, allowing you to connect with an emergency operator no matter your location. Simply press the button on your neck pendant or wristband. This device is also water resistant, allowing you to wear it in the shower as well.

  • MobileHelp Neck Pendant or Wristband

    The neck pendant help button comes on a lanyard and can easily be worn while you’re at home or out-and-about. The wristband is worn like a bracelet. Most of MobileHelp’s packages include your choice of one or the other. They’re both water resistant and can be used to call for help whenever you’re in range of a base station or Mobile Device.

  • MobileHelp Fall Button

    This is the smart device you’ll need to wear if you opt into automatic fall detection monitoring. Even if you are unable to push the built-in help button, this device will automatically contact emergency help in case of a fall, as long as you’re within range of your base station or Mobile Device.

  • MobileHelp Smart Watch

    This is a novel medical alert device that takes a strong cue from today’s modern smartwatches. It provides the reassurance of 24/7 monitoring but doesn’t have the telltale look of a medical device. Thanks to its fitness tracking capabilities, it’s a great fit for active individuals who want the comfort of an instant emergency response even when they’re out and about on walks and errands.

  • MobileHelp Wired Home Base Station

    The MobileHelp Wired Home base station is designed for customers who have a landline and want their medical alert system to have a landline connection. This base station features two-way audio and has a help button in the center for emergency assistance.

  • MobileHelp Lock Box

    Provide emergency responders access to your home with the MobileHelp Lock Box. You can choose the combination code for your lock box and store your key inside, so emergency responders can reach you when needed without damaging doors or windows. The lock box is durable and secure, made to withstand the elements.
