SafeGuardian's innovative FallAlert™ technology is yet another layer of protection designed to keep your loved ones safe, especially when they're unable to call for help on their own.
The CareCaller LTE FallAlert™ automatically detects a fall and immediately sends alerts to all contacts, followed by a phone call, without the wearer having to lift a finger.
Here's how it works:
- When a wearer falls, the CareCaller LTE FallAlert™ will announce through its innovative voice prompt system that a fall has been detected.
- The device will then send out a text alert with the date, time, and location of the fall, complete with a Google Map link with the wearer's exact GPS coordinates.
- The device will then announce that authorized contact 1 is being called.
- Once an authorized contact answers, the CareCaller LTE FallAlert™ will automatically initiate two-way talk between the wearer and the contact using the device's built-in speaker and microphone. This is a vital step. Through two-way talk, contacts can asses the level of danger a wearer is in and take the necessary steps, such as calling 911.
Worried about false alarms? SafeGuardian has three innovative measures to prevent those:
Voice Prompts: The CareCaller LTE FallAlert™ makes it easy to cancel fall detection alerts — if necessary — before they're sent to contacts. After a fall, the device will announce that a fall was detected and instruct the wearer to press the SOS button to cancel. This announcement will play three times to give the wearer a chance to cancel the alert.
Adjustable Sensitivity: Have a loved one who is more active and seems to be triggering fall alerts through everyday activities? The CareCaller LTE FallAlert™ also allows wearers or loved ones to adjust the sensitivity of the fall detector with the simplicity of a text command sent to the device. For those who are more active, simply lower the sensitivity of the device, and for those who are at greater risks of falls, raise the sensitivity to detect even the lightest of activity.
Righting the Device: The CareCaller LTE FallAlert™ is fitted with an innovative accelerometer that senses sudden changes in height and speed, as well as impact. Another way to prevent false alarms is by "righting the device." Should a user inadvertently trigger a fall alert by dropping the pendant, they need only to pick the device up and return it to its normal height and position. This lets the device know that the user has either gotten up and is unhurt, or the device was accidentally dropped and picked up.
