The GSM unit works in the same way as the Lifeline Unit, however, without the need for a landline. Instead, the GSM unit uses a roaming SIM which picks up the strongest mobile network signal and has no requirement for a landline.
The GSM unit is a simple, easy to use, and supports independent living, by enabling the home environment to be monitored 24 hours a day. The GSM unit is ideal for anyone needing extra support to remain independent at home, providing reassurance and confidence.
The GSM unit can be connected to a pendant alarm, falls detector or other home telecare sensors by sending a radio signal to the GSM unit when the alarm or sensor has been triggered. The GSM unit, connected to our 24/7 Control Centre which able to call one of our Control Centre operators who will then respond to the alert by speaking to the you through the GSM unit's loudspeaker / microphone and take appropriate action by getting you the help you may need such as, contacting a family member, carer, a Progress Lifeline emergency home responder or the emergency services.
Detecting risks such as fire, food or gas leaks, additional sensors placed discreetly around the home can automatically raise an alarm. PIR (passive infrared) detectors can be incorporated to provide intruder monitoring or alert if someone has left their bed or home or has failed to return safely within a predetermined timeframe.
The GSM system costs £19.99 a month and this includes a red button personal alarm, a Lifeline base unit connected 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to the Progress Lifeline control centre, free installation and maintenance of the equipment. The GSM plan can also be upgraded to include a falls package with a wrist-worn falls detector and Progress Lifeline’s Emergency Home Response and assistive lifting service for £29.99 per month.
