Best Medical Alert Provider of 2015 4 (411 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

Even our backups have backups.
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.

Both 24/7 emergency medical monitoring centers are CSAA Five Diamond Certified and undergo a rigorous certification process annually, commit to tough quality standards, and agree to random inspections by UL, a nationally recognized testing laboratory.

The patient has a great sense of relief and comfort in knowing that they are not alone even when there is no one at home. Bay Alarm is like a constant companion and makes everyone more able to resume some normal activities without fear of a loved one having a fall or needing care while they are out of the house. It is a wonderful feeling to know that care is right around the patients neck.

Easy to Install, Thankfully No Reason To Use
Read all the positive reviews and ordering went as expected. The unit arrived quickly and was easy to install. The test went smooth. Thankfully I haven't had to use it yet but have no reason to think when and if it happens, it will all be as advertised. Customer service team is all very friendly and helpful.

Peace of Mind
Ordering, payment and installation went very smoothly. Satisfied to date with the product. When the button was accidentally pushed, response was immediate and courteous. One small problem is the necklace itself- my mom is very petite and this button is large for her. She doesn't sleep with it on but keeps it nearby.

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.
