The Lifeline Base Unit


The Lifeline Vi and Vi+ are simple to use telecare alarm base units which support independent living, by enabling the home environment to be monitored 24 hours a day. The Lifeline unit is ideal for anyone needing extra support to remain independent at home, providing reassurance and confidence.

The base unit can be connected to a pendant alarm, falls detector or other home telecare sensors by sending a radio signal to the base unit when the alarm or sensor has been triggered. The base unit, connected through a telephone line is then able to call our 24/7 Progress Lifeline Control Centre. On of our Control Centre operators will then respond to the alert by speaking to the user through the Lifeline Vi / Vi+ 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.
