Home Personal Security
Great Lakes Alarm
Given the choice, most seniors and persons with medical conditions or physical challenges would prefer to live in their own homes and be as independent as they can. That’s not always possible, but for many, this dream can become a reality with the addition of one easy-to-use communications device.
The PERS-2400A ( Personal Emergency Reporting System) connects to your home telephone line, and will place a call automatically when you need it, day or night. Family, neighbors and medical personnel whom you pre-designate are immediately notified, so they can respond.
The PERS has been proven very dependable, enough to meet some very tough standards. It’s listed by Underwriters Laboratories as a home healthcare signaling device and a smoke alarm accessory.
Operation of the PERS-2400A couldn’t be simpler. If you can operate a garage door opener, you can operate this device. You keep a wireless transmitter with you at all times. In the event of an at-home emergency, you press the alarm button, which functions like a TV remote control, to signal the console to automatically call the Emergency Monitoring Center.
The Monitoring Center is staffed 24/7 by trained professionals. When one of these operators receives your call, they notify the key people whom you pre-selected to respond in specific situations: family members, neighbors, friends, or appropriate rescue personnel.
24/7 Emergency Assistance
The heart of this system is the console itself, which is designed for tabletop use and is ideal for bedside/end table placement. It features a central Emergency button for manual activation in the same manner as the personal transmitters. A Clear button cancels alarms or resets the system after an alarm, and a Home button resets or turns off the activity reporting timer. During an alarm, the console sounds a distinct tone to identify the type of alarm. During a power outage, continuous protection is ensured by a long-life back-up battery.
