Frequently Asked Questions


How is the EMC Medical Alert Pendant different from other personal emergency alert and response systems?                                                                                                       

The EMC Medical Alert System includes a pendant that allows two-way voice communication for only $21.95 a month.  The person wearing the EMC Medical Alert pendant can speak directly into the pendant with our an operator at EMC Security's local monitoring center located in Suwanee, Georgia to explain their emergency or needs.  If using a competitor medical alert system, the person must be in close distance to the stationary base unit to be able to clearly communicate with an operator; if the person was not in the same room as the base unit, they would have to scream hoping that they are loud enough for someone to hear them.  

Who monitors the medical alert alarm signals?

EMC Security's local monitoring station located in Suwanee, Georgia monitors all emergency medical alarms.  EMC Security's local monitoring service is UL Listed with a CSAA 5 Diamond Certified monitoring center staff.

Will the EMC Medical Alert Pendant work in my yard?

The EMC Medical Alert Pendant is powerful enough to cover up to a 5,000-square-foot home and still have enough range to go another 100 feet out into the yard.  While installing the system, the EMC Medical Alert Specialist can test different locations around the home for signal strength.

Who installs the EMC Medical Alert System?

Does it use a battery?
