America's #1 Rated Medical Alert Provider
If you have health issues or have a loved one that may need immediate medical attention, consider an emergency response solution from Bay Alarm Medical. The In-Home Medical Alert System uses your existing landline and installs in seconds, and offers an extra-large help button and clear hands-free two-way audio. Its landline, cellular, and fall detection coverage are a bit more expensive than the competition, but the system delivered the fastest overall response times and the best portable help button range in our tests. That makes it our Editors' Choice for in-home medical alert systems.
The Bay Alarm Medical On-The-Go GPS Help Button is small, simply designed and easy to use. Even better, the response times to my calls were so quick that it gave me a real sense of confidence in the system’s ability to provide emergency help rapidly and effectively when needed.
Bay Alarm Medical has the fastest average response time of any company we reviewed, at an average of 10 seconds, meaning that customers get the help they need sooner than with other companies. Bay Alarm Medical also scored highly in this category thanks to its generous 30-day free trial period, easy-to-navigate website with a live customer service chat feature, and its A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.
Overall, Bay Alarm Medical offers affordable and streamlined on-the-go and in-the-home medical alert systems and services that help seniors live more comfortably. With plenty of affordable add-on accessories and versatile on-the-go options ranging from the GPS help button to an SOS smartwatch — there’s a device that fits every unique need. As a family-owned business for decades, they’ve provided life-saving medical alert systems to over 100,000 customers and live by their code of ethics to provide transparency and protection for aging adults.
Some medical alert smartwatches require a smartphone, but the Bay Alarm SOS Smartwatch is functional all on its own. It has two-way calling, so if you press the help button, you can talk directly to the dispatcher through the smartwatch (and you can also talk to your loved ones). It also features location tracking and a built-in step tracker. The battery life ranges from six to 18 hours, depending on usage, and the device is water resistant with a rating of IP67.
