The Alarm.com Emergency Call Button for 345 MHz will give your loved one a quick method for requesting help in case of a fall. You can place the button in a high-risk area, such as by the stairs or the bathtub. Then it will be there if your loved one ever needs emergency assistance.
Many elderly and mobility challenged individuals feel apprehensive or embarrassed about having to wear a medical alert button at all times. This is especially true if they are really only likely to experience a slip and fall accident in certain areas. For these users, having a permanently fixed medical call button can represent an ideal solution. It's a good compromise to having a medical alert button on their person at all times. This button is big and red so that your loved one will be able to quickly locate it in a distressed state. It can be easily activated by simply pressing and holding the button for a full second. Once activated, an audible message will confirm.
This version of the emergency call button operates at a 345 MHz, and it is designed for use with 2GIG Panels and the IQ Panel 2 Plus w/ Legacy Honeywell & 2GIG Daughtercard. You can also use it with the Lyric Alarm System, but it's really designed for use with Alarm.com rather than Total Connect 2.0. Alarm.com even has a wellness platform that is perfect for use with this emergency button. You also have the option of programming the sensor to not trigger an alarm when activated so that ADC just sends you a text and/or email alert when pressed.
When programming this device, you want to use a Sensor Type of either 24-Hour Aux Alarm (emergency) or No Response (non-emergency). The Equipment Type should be set to Contact. The Equipment Code is 0491. The device uses Loop Number 2. All of the other programming settings can be adjusted according to preference. You should make sure that the sensor is within 100 feet of the system so that it can transmit signals properly.
There is mounting hardware included with this emergency button, but using it is optional. If you want, you can just rest the sensor in the desired location instead of hard-mounting. The button measures about 4.75" in diameter and 2.25" deep. It features an ABS plastic construction and a slip-resistant bottom. The sensor relies on three (3) AAA batteries for power, and it has an expected battery lifespan of two (2) years.
