I arranged for the Medical Guardian Alert system for my 80 year old mother. Your pricing is great and the service has been excellent. The set up was so easy. Thank you for giving me the piece of mind that my mother can receive help with the push of one button. She is also very happy with the system. Thank you, Tammy L. McClellan

I would've awarded 5 stars if the charging base were a bit less particular about how the mobile device is placed in it. Charging hasn't always succeeded.

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!

I called for some information for my mom. I was not intending to sign up. Robin was so good at informing me about all the services. I ended up paying for a full year and insurance by the time we hung up. He took his time and never rushed me. He answered all my questions no matter how many times I asked the same question. He is excellent at his job. I never looked anywhere else.
