Smart Caller Help Phone Benefits:
As the alarm can call directly to family or other support persons mobile phone or landline, there is the option for no professional monitoring costs. Instead of calling a monitoring centre, the alarm is sent to your family and/or friends first. Up to 8 pre-programmed family numbers are available, so if the first call is not received, it dials the second number, and continues to dial your support network until the call is responded to. This is ideal where budgets are limited, or for those who live rurally where ambulance support is some time away. It is also suitable for those with good extended family networks who prefer to receive assistance from a family member, for example, persons with English as a second language.
- Professional Monitoring Option
If your family support network is not as strong as it once was, BluePhone can be connected to a 24 hour professional monitoring centre. There is a nominal once off set up charge, along with a small fortnightly monitoring fee for this 24 hour professional monitoring service.

The 'very loud’ two-way speech microphone easily penetrates the house.
