What makes our monitored personal alarm system different?

We don't just respond, we resolve.

We understand how important our monitoring service is in an emergency and answer alarm calls quicker than many other providers, and faster than 999 calls*.

Unlike some other personal alarm providers who might just answer your emergency calls, we're committed to resolving them.

We'll get help for you in an emergency and keep in touch until the emergency is resolved.

Why our 24-hour alarm monitoring service is called emergency resolution

At the heart of everything we do is supporting adults to remain independent for longer and offering peace of mind to those who love them most.

We strongly believe that this can't be done effectively by simply answering calls and pushing buttons but doing everything we can to ensure that our customers and loved ones feel confident and safe using our monitored services.
