Best Medical Alert Provider of 2015 4 (399 reviews)
After researching multiple companies, it was easy to see that Bay Alarm was the best company to go with. The representative I worked with on the phone was both knowledgeable and friendly and I felt she had my interest in mind, not a quick phone conversation and sign up. Thank you for giving me and my family the peace of mind to know that I'm safer now than I've ever been. - Anna K, Mooresville NC

3 Redundant USA Call Centers

Medical Alert USA Call Center


A medical alert system is only as good as the 24/7 emergency call center that backs it up. Bay Alarm Medical works closely with our USA-based monitoring partner to create a network of highly reliable emergency response centers. Located in Ogden, Utah and Rexburg, Idaho, the two state-of-the-art centers are full duplicates of each other. If one station were to ever go offline, the other station would provide immediate emergency coverage.

Peace of mind....
I did much research before choosing Bay Alarm Medical. They had fair pricing, no upfront equipment costs and no contract. I can return my equipment and stop service at any time. I am happy with my unit and the alert necklace is small and I don't really know I have it on.

Bay Alarm Medical
We are new to this company. Our mother is 92 and living on her own for the first time in her life due to the passing of my 95 year old father. We set mom up with the medical alarm in February and have only had a couple times where we have had to talk to tech support and they were very helpful and polite! I have recommended the company to a co-worker who is in a similar situation with his father. Thank you for great service!

Bay Alarm Proves Trust Worthy
I have not used the button I wear around my neck in an emergency. Twice it was pushed by accident. They were very quick to respond with a phone call both times. I appreciate the kindness shown to me . I feel they will answer promptly and take care of the my call when there is an emergency. Thank you, Bay Alarm.

New customer
As a fairly new customer of the Bay Alarm, fortunately, I have had no problem that requires any help. The only thing that impressed me, and my family, was how considerate & helpful the people were to get it all set up. They explained everything and took us through it, step by step.

Rated best and there are probably none better but to be improved!
Rated best and there are probably none better but to be improved! We had problems setting it up; customer service was good and we got the unit operating. Lag time after pressing the button mjst seem like an eternity to anyone while in an emergency.

Quite good.
I have only had the experience of having this unit for a short time. My only experience has been in testing it and getting a prompt response. I also had a problem with it getting set off accidentally when my telephone was out of order and there was an alarm. Unfortunately, I was not aware of what I needed to do to stop it until a family member happened to come in and turned it off. I think I might need a little more information on what to do.

Give your parents some autonomy, while knowing there is help if you need it.
My dad fell at home and could not get up. He used his medical alert and they went down the caller list until someone was contacted and could get to the house and help Dad.

Definitely recommend to family and friends.
I love the customer service, the easy set up, the reliability of the system and the fall detention. However, I wish it would be cheaper.

Best ever , real peace of mind .
I have set off the alarm a few times by mistake. They were on the intercom within a minute and quick to inquire as to my situation. Once it was determined it was a false alarm they were very friendly and thanked me for using their product. Being alone during the day it make me feel comfortable.

Confidence, independence
I had taken a pretty serious fall a few months ago which resulted in some serious injuries for which I'm still in physical therapy but ,doing much better. Needless to say after my fall I was scared and felt very vulnerable. My daughter and son- in-law suggested that I get a medical alert. My daughter researched the different companies and found out the following; Bay Alarm offered more coverage by distance than any other service, their were no additional or hidden costs, everything was up front and the monthly payments were actually the lowest . If this sounds too good to be true, it wasn't. Out of several different website reviews Bay Alarm was ranked in the top five. Also, to be more efficient my family read actual reviews of customers. All of which were highly recommended. If you're considering a medical alert please take the time to read about Bay Alarm Medical. It will be well worth your time and effort.
