    What is a Pendant Alarm?

    A Pendant alarm is a device that you keep close to yourself. In case of an emergency, you can activate it by pressing the button in the middle in case of an emergency. Once activated the team at AidCall247 is alerted to check you or your loved ones are OK and alert you, or any other keyholder.

    A pendant alarm can be worn in 3 ways:

    • As a pendant (most common)
    • Flexible wristband
    • Attached to clothing
