Frequently Asked Questions

A lifeline personal alarm is an emergency alert button that can be worn either as a pendant round the neck or on your wrist.

Personal alarms may also be called personal alert buttons, personal pendant alarms or lifeline alarms.

A personal alarm helps maintain your independence and can keep you living safely in your own home for longer.

The alarm is connected using wireless technology to our friendly team in the Progress Lifeline monitoring centre, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The lifeline personal alarm and remote home monitoring service works via a lifeline base unit, which connects to both a power socket and telephone socket, and a personal pendant alarm button, which is a red alarm button you can wear round the neck as a pendant or on a wristband.

The personal alarm button should be worn all day at home, including in the bathroom (it’s waterproof) and out in the garden (the red button alarm works up to 50m away from the lifeline base unit).

If you feel unwell, have an accident, fall, or need reassurance at home, you press the personal alarm button which connects you to the Progress Lifeline alarm response centre within seconds.

The operator will speak to you via the microphone and speakers on the lifeline base unit to establish what kind of help you need before contacting your named emergency contacts and will also call the emergency services if required.

The operator will keep checking on you via the lifeline system to provide reassurance to you until help arrives at your property. The built-in microphone and speakers are highly sensitive and will pick up your voice even when you're in another room to the base unit.

If you are unable to speak, the operators at the alarm response centre will still send help to your property.

The lifeline personal alarm service can offer reassurance, safety and greater independence to people of anyone over the age of 18.
