Fall Detector with Lifeline Vi Alarm Monthly Plan

Fall Detector with Lifeline Vi Alarm

The Lifeline VI Alarm is the latest telecare alarm technology manufactured by Tunstall. This fall detector package comes complete with everything you need to get started right away, and is easy to setup and test with a simple step by step guide provided inside. The compact and stylish alarm base comes in a standard grey and white colour scheme, with three buttons to the front which can show the unit’s status through different coloured LED lights. The speaker can be seen located to the front of the alarm base and the radio antenna and sockets hidden on the rear edge of the alarm so you can hide any wires feeding from the alarm out of sight. The Lifeline Vi home unit also has an integral temperature sensor that can monitor the environmental temperature in the room where the Lifeline is placed. The Vibby Fall Detector is sleek, stylish and technologically advanced and can be worn around the wrist or neck just like the MyAmie pendant. The main difference is that the Vibby Fall Detector can automatically send an alert call to our Response Team should you suffer from a fall. Confirmation that an alert has been raised is clearly shown by an LED light on the device, along with a useful vibration. It’s also very easy to cancel an alarm call if it was a false alarm or a test. All the user needs to do is to cover the face of the Vibby with their hands, or stand up within the 20 second period after a fall is detected. The Vibby Fall Detector will stop vibrating to confirm that the alert call has been cancelled. Don’t worry, if you feel unwell or have any other concerns you can still push the button on the Vibby Fall Detector to call for help. With the monthly plan you will be covered for monitoring from our expert 24/7 Response Team if the alarm is activated! You can purchase an additional MyAmie Pendant for yourself or a second user in the same property for £49 per year. This saves you the cost of having two separate alarms as one Lifeline VI base unit can be shared between two people. The fall detection technology in the Vibby does not allow analysis and interpretation of all fall situations. For this reason, you should always activate the Fall Detector manually by pressing the white button if you need help.  

This service includes:

  • The plug and play Lifeline Vi Alarm
  • 1 wireless Vibby Fall Detector
  • Choice of Wrist Strap and Neck Cord
  • 3 months monitoring from our expert response team

Funeral Plans

Buy a Funeral Plan and provide peace of mind for you and those close to you. Talking about death and funerals can be….well…um…er… a little awkward. But sometimes talking about awkward things now can have significant benefits for you and your family further down the line. They say that the only certainties in life are death and taxes, so a funeral plan is something you may wish to consider. However, purchasing a funeral plan is not just a financial decision, it’s an emotional one. Having a funeral plan in place genuinely means one less thing for your loved ones to think about at one of life’s saddest and emotional times. You and your family can choose the funeral that you want, and it will save your family from any uncertainty and worry over your final wishes.
