Ordered this for my mom who is 72 and couldn't be more happy with the service. She's accidentally hit the alert buttons and within seconds she's received phone calls from Bay Alarm, the fire department and/or police. We know that it works!! Thanks Bay Alarm, highly recommend!

My 91 year old mother lives with us. We got Bay Alarm Medical Alert for her. We got the fall detection and cannot say how impressed we have been with the very prompt attention we received when she falls. Some of the alerts have been accidental or not serious, thankfully, but Bay Alarm Medical has saved my mom on more than one occasion. I cannot say enough good about this company.

It looks like the "Fine Print" section describes things a little differently from what I experienced with ADT. No Activation Fee, Month-to-Month Agreement - with better pricing if you are an existing ADT customer, and if you are in a position to pay quarterly or annually. They do have a "Forever Rate" price lock on their monitoring fee - which is great! No hidden costs. Wonderful people at the call center - very kind, compassionate and caring! I would choose ADT over any other brand, any day of the week!
