How It Works
How the LifeFone Emergency Response Service Works
Press the personal help button on your pendant, wristband or wall-mounted help button. A
signal is sent to a small base unit in your home, and then to the LifeFone monitoring station.
LifeFone’s “On The Go” Service includes a small mobile device that provides GPS (Global
Positioning System) services to locate you in case of an emergency away from home. When
you press your help button, the mobile device contacts the LifeFone monitoring station, and
notifies LifeFone of your location.
LifeFone’s Fall Detection Service includes a pendant which can summon help for you
automatically in case of a fall. The Fall Detection Pendant will connect to either the LifeFone
base unit or mobile device, which will contact the LifeFone monitoring station for you.
The new VIP product uses existing ATT Cellular coverage
map for VIP with Fall Detection, and uses the Verizon
coverage map for just VIP Cellular without optional
Fall detection. We will show links to both maps for this
product. However, note that this only affects this product
line, and other products should remain with just ATT maps.
