Freedom Alert

Freedom Alert is the World’s first programmable 2-way Emergency Pendant communicator which dials up to 4 pre-programmed numbers of your family, friends, or neighbors to be called before 911 is called. Freedom Alert works with your Land Line (telephone line). You also have the option of dialing up to 4 pre-programmed numbers and not dialing 911 or you can select 911 only. Cell phone numbers can be programmed in as well. Freedom Alert works anywhere in the continental US where telephone service is available. 

The home monitor installs in minutes with no tools required. The unit works like a cordless phone on any standard phone line. The unit is owned by the individual and can be taken and reinstalled at any new location.

The pendant can be comfortably worn around the neck, clipped on a belt, or carried in a pocket. The system offers complete coverage in and around the home within a 600 ft radius of the base unit.  If an emergency or accident occurs, the alert can be easily activated by pressing the button and within seconds you can be directly speaking with a family member, friend, neighbor, or 911 operator. Freedom Alert offers a much needed comfort to those with the system, and for their family, knowing that getting help in an emergency is as simple as the push of a button.
