Best Medical Alert Provider of 2016 4.55525 (525 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.

Certified & Accredited

CSAA Five Diamond Certified

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.

Only complaint is that the lights are too small
Only complaint is that the lights are too small for a vision-impaired person. My mother-in-law cannot tell if the unit is charged or even on without making a call. That said, the call center responds quickly and they are very friendly. Overall, I would recommend this product.

Chose Bay Alarm after much research
When our Mom FINALLY agreed to have a medical emergency device, we did a great deal of research. We looked at devices, communication, reviews, costs, etc. Based on all that, plus our experience dealing with customer service, we chose Bay Alarm. Luckily, our Mom has not had any emergencies. But based on the cost, set-up, etc. Bay Alarm has been great, and we definitely recommend.

Nothing but great customer service.
Tech support always there to help. Set up was a bit confusing, but one call and all issues were resolved. There are false alarms with the motion activated (fall protection) necklace but so what. My wife was having this problem with the fall protection necklace so we ordered a bracelet. (Not shown on the website) She switches back to the fall protection necklace once she is out of bed. That seems to work for her.

Works when it is worn, although when we needed it one day and pushed the help button nothing happened. Has been fine since that day.

Fantastic customer service. Not so sure about the monitoring...
In reality, we did not have the system long. It was very easy to order, install and return. My one concern, which was a major concern was that my father's phone was turned off due to a move in the middle of the night(3:00 a.m.), that is another review. The machine called out for him to call. I got there at 8 in the morning and couldn't disable it...only a small problem. BUT...why when my father didn't call and they couldn't reach him, did they not go down the call list? I also called the non-emergency police number to advise them that there wasn't an emergency should they receive a call from Bay Medical and to ask if they had received a call and they hadn't. Fortunately, not a life threatening situation, but easily could have been.

I have to say this was the easiest set up than I've had in a long time. No special tools needed, no lengthy directions to read. Take it out of the box, plug it in to the wall and the phone jack and bingo, we're done. It gives me and my family peace of mind having it in my home. I had a series of falls recently so that's what made my family talk to me about have an emergency response system for my home. I live alone so I know I can always get help if I need it.get

Ron's opinion
The first one they sent wouldn't work with our wireless phone system. The second one requires having a dedicated phone jack. However, now it works. I think they should have to test it once a month. How do I know it's working?

Always helpful
When my grandsons push the help button (always an accident!) or if mom accidentally hits the button whoever comes on to talk to us is very kind and understanding and is careful to appraise the situation to make sure it's not an emergency. So far we haven't had to use it in an actual emergency but someone has always been there very quickly when the button is activated.
