The Bay Area Life Alert System has worked flawlessly for us. The system does everything just as advertised. Although we have been fortunate that we have not had to use the alert system yet, we have accidentally activated it on occasion and must say that the system definitely works, and works well. It was extremely easy to set up and use right out of the box. I live in Pennsylvania and researched different systems and elected to go with the Bay Area System even though the company is located in California. I must say I am extremely pleased and would urge others to not be afraid to trust this companies life alert system. A good product with excellent service response time.....and that's what having a system like this has to have. There pricing was competitive if not better than other similar services available. Before you sign on to a life alert system I would at least recommend giving this company a hard look before you commit to someone else's service.

In looking at services offered Bay Medical had options that we liked in creating a medical support for my mother that lives at home alone. The alarm buttons that can be placed in the home in fall areas add additional comfort if she falls and does have her pendent on. Recently my mom had a medical issue that required immediate attention and Bay Medical handle her alarm timely and professional and she received the medical support she needed. If there was any concerns my mother had about the services Bay Medical offers her concerns were removed and a since of security that someone will help when needed.

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!
