Have used Bay Alarm service for my elderly dad for over 2 years now. He has worn the pendant and also had the manual alarm button to use with one touch. Over this time he has activated his alarm multiple times, including several falls in which his pendant sensor alerted the Bay Alarm to call, and subsequently send EMS.This company is awesome . Their phone operators are courteous, experienced and extremely proactive in providing prompt attention and follow through to ensure my dad's safety.I highly recommend Bay Alarm to anyone considering for an elderly loved one.

Land line installation was simple (just plug into phone jack and wall outlet). Think the portable help buttons are a great idea. Placed them around the house so that the necklace wearing is optional, especially for someone adamant they will not wear one. Testing the unit once plugged in was simple,quick, and easy BUT suggest you have someone to help other than your elderly recipient. Customer service was great!read more

Very pleased with everything involved to set my 94 year old mother up the Bay Alarm Medical. The agent I spoke with on the phone was knowledgeable, helpful, and very patient in answering my questions. The device arrived quickly and was very easy to set up. All the contact agents during the setup process were also polite and patient, outlining expectations in an easy to understand manner. Shortly after setup, my mom experienced a power outage. She called and asked me whether the system was still working. I told her to press the Help button and they'd respond in a matter of seconds. And they did! She was very pleased that they were so quick and very helpful in explaining that she was still safe even if the power went out.What a great company - so glad we chose Bay Alarm Medical!read more

The Bay in home monitoring system most likely saved my mom's life on three different occasions. In two cases she had fallen (she is 92 and uses a walker) outside her home. Bay Alarm dispatchers called 911 and paramedics arrived very quickly. Contacts were notified quickly as well. On the third occasion she had a home invasion and pushed her pendant button and the Invaders left when the Bay Alarm dispatchers came on the monitor speaker and ask what the emergency was. My family is very thankful for Bay Alarm! Great service at an excellent price!read more

I changed my phone service to Vonage and could not get my alert system to work so I thought I was going to need an upgrade. However while speaking with the customer service representative she said I didn't have it hooked up correctly. She walked me through the process and got me up and running. She spent somewhere between 20 and 30 minutes on the phone with me. I really appreciated the time and help she gave me. I have been with Bay medical for about two years and a couple of weeks ago I inadvertently set the alarm off. Well a little while later the ambulance service was at my door and my son and daughter were frantically calling me so the moral of that story is the system really does work. Having this alert system gives me great comfort. I would definitely advise anyone living alone to seriously consider a medical alert system.read more

This is an updated review. I am moving out of the area and I needed to know if I can continue to use Bay Alarm. And, also, I am contemplating not having a land line when I move, so I needed to know all the ramifications, etc. The lady who helped me was excellent. She listened to all my questions and answered them very well. Her explanations were detailed and by the time the call ended, I felt very comfortable that I knew what to expect when I move. She very much deserves a solid 5 star rating. Also, I want to commend Bay Alarm on the excellent service they have given me the past several months. Everything worked as advertised. I was able to communicate with them even when outside of my house, etc. I usually test the system once a week and they are always very polite and concerned about how I'm doing and whether or not I'm OK. I plan on continuing with Bay Alarm when I move, and I whole heartedly recommend Bay Alarm to anyone who is in need of their service.read more

We’ve only had service for a couple months (for my mother), and couldn’t be happier! Staff is very professional and patient. Price is a better value compared to other companies that I researched - I paid for 6 months and received a free lock box that contains a key to her door for First Responders. My mom has accidentally activated her alarm a few times, and they are VERY QUICK to respond. On one of the accidental activations, my mom had removed her hearing aid for bed and could not hear the agent. They followed protocol to a “T” and called 9-1-1 and then called me. I am very comfortable leaving my mom alone, knowing that Bay Alarm has their ears on for her 24/7!!!!read more
