Hi folks... Someone might know this, before we call St John for more information.

 

If you have the medical alarm device (MA) connected to a mobile base unit, is this linked to a specific address - or are able to have the unit on a campervan while travelling around?

 

In other words, does it have geo-location on these mobile units?

Thanks, thought so.

 

Any suggestions for a New Zealand-based mobile alarm folks?

There is a “mobile” version that locates you - see St John website

Does anyone know what this costs on top of the standard system? And I see it mentions it’s a pendant, so I’m thinking it’s not something that can be worn on the wrist like the standard alarm. A pity the site doesn’t provide more info and photos.

 

My mother’s first alarm was a SIM-based one with GPS (one-off purchase, and just texted and rang stored numbers), but as a not-tiny pendant she basically refused to wear it, whereas she’s been fine wearing the St John bracelet since we got that.

I think it's address specific. My parents got one for my grandmother - she stays with them but my parents go to States 4 times a year.

 

She just has to press the button and the ambo turns up (I've seen that first hand).

 

 

 

I could find out this morning, they live 10mins away?

 

 

 

 

 

Edit: I asked Mummy.. :)  St Johns ring the person after button is pressed, and talk through the base unit. 

 

Doesn't appear to be GeoAware.

@K8Toledo check my later replies after someone pointed out there's a GPS version available - but you have to sign up for the basic service and buy this as an add-on.

Possibly, but if true St John's  site would surely mention GPS & I don't see it anywhere? Hence the screenshot.

 

Maybe site not updated if GPS is new.?

 

I'm onsite at St John's later today, I'll ask the girls.

The adt one is the same, if there's pendant, it tied to your physical house location:

@K8Toledo; I’m wondering if you read the page that was linked to, as it makes a specific reference to GPS. If not, here’s the link again:

I read this page, which makes no mention of GPS.

Edit:  URL says it all I guess.
