Thank you to whomever made this product
My grandmother fell a few days before i purchase this. It broke my heart knowing she fell and their was no way of her to call me. So i ended up buying this. It is loud but when you put it under your pillow its good enough for your love one to wake you up if they need you. I advice for those who are caring for their elderly to purchase this. Its easy for them to push and loud enough to wake you up to help your love one. I was really happy with this product. BTW please be patience with your love ones they are growing old and fragile. Be kind and gentle when you care for them, change them, bathe them, feed them. Because when they pass you will miss them and knowing you did your best to care for them will keep your heart at peace and easy the pain of their passing.
Overpriced wireless doorbell
It's basically a wireless doorbell. I think for maybe $20 the quality would be ok, not for nearly 40. The plastic felt loose and cheap, empty. It should be made smaller...both the transmitter and the receiver, and there should be more than 2 awful ringtones
Caregiver Call System.
This is very useful if you don't need an emergency button to go through an operator system. The distance works in our 2 story home and will wake me from a deep sleep if parent needs me.
Using these to warn when one of us is showering in one of our two bathrooms so the person on the other floor doesn't run water/flush. Amazon Warehouse deal was missing the batteries for the call buttons but those are standard garage door opeber 12v so easily obtained.

The call buttons work great! My Mom lives in the condo right next door and she presses the button every morning when she awakes. We've been using it for almost a month and it has always worked. The condos are concrete block construction and I was worried it wouldn't work, but it does. Great product for the money!
The range is only 150 feet
Here's a horror story: My loved-one (LO) lives in a small assisted living home. Total of 16 residents on two levels. My loved-one is on the ground floor, nearest to the kitchen, dining and community rooms. My LO fell out of bed. The call button was employed, and employed, and employed -- for three hours. Finally my LO had to call 9-1-1 from the cell phone, to be gotten off the floor. Because the call button did not alert the care staff. Don't underestimate how short 150 feet is.
This is perfect. The range is fantastic too
This is perfect. The range is fantastic too. I have a 3 story house and we tested from upstairs on the top floor to all the way in the back of the basement and it rang every time without a hiccup. Very happy with this purchase!
Not for people with memory loss or confusion.
This product is good only if the person using it has no memory loss. We got this for my mom who had cancer, unfortunately by the time we got this it was to complex for her to figure out or remember to use. Cheep trick, order baby monitors instead.

Purchased to give my parents an option to call for help without having to fumble for a phone. This is perfect for our needs as my dad has Parkinson's and can't readily dial sometimes. It allows my parents the assurance that someone is quickly available without losing some privacy.
Useless. Does not work through one wall
Useless. Does not work through one wall, let alone at 150 feet. Update: Trying to figure out ways to make this work as intended. Allow me to explain our situation. My mother had a stroke, and we needed a way for her to reach notify us while she was sleeping if she needed us. So I purchased this. My mother sleeps in the next room. it will work through one wall and 20 feet of distance. I just tested it. It works through 25 feet of open air. if the button is 25 feet away, it will not work. I had walkie talkies as a child that cost ten dollars that worked further then that. I don't know what these other reviews are about, this does not work as advertised. Upgraded to two stars because it is loud. but what is the point of loud if it doesn't work?
Works as Advertised
Bought this is August of 2016 and it has worked well since then. No problems and no complaints.
This is great! I live downstairs from my elderly mother. She can page me anytime she needs me. It gives her a good sense of security and me the freedom to be anywhere around the house including the garage and outside. Very easy to set up. Construction and design look good. I bought two so that we could have extra transmitters in the bathroom near the floor and one hanging from the bed headboard. A great product!
Dead after 2 weeks
As an acupuncturist, I used this to help patients contact me while on the table. I think that WIFI, Bluetooth, and other wireless devices interfered with this device. Switched to a simple and affordable device called "the doorbell." Cost effective, weather proof, and reliable.
It's the best money I've ever spent
It's the best money I've ever spent.....when my mom needs me she presses the call button and it alerts me instantly.

Works great. I can be in the garden with the control in my pocket or clipped to my pants, and I will hear my husband if he needs me.
Lifesaver for my elderly mom!
I ordered this last year for my elderly mom. She has been diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder that affects her balance, mobility and voice. My parents live in a two-story house. When my dad is downstairs, my mom can't yell loud enough if she needs help with walking to the bathroom or walking down the stairs. While she has a medical alert device for emergencies, she needed something for non-emergency daily use. This one-button touch pager has been such a blessing. The pager is downstairs in the kitchen and each call button is in the upstairs and downstairs bathroom. (Everyone has a system that works for them. For my mom, keeping the call buttons in the bathrooms instead of around her neck or near her bed works best for her.) Whenever my mom needs something, she rings the bell and my dad or anyone visiting is alerted. The pager is loud enough for the whole house to hear. (My parents' house is 3200 sq. feet). I thought it would've been nice to have a volume button, but honestly, after having this for a year, I'm glad there isn't. At first, it may seem loud, but trust me - when it comes to our loved ones that need this, you'll be glad about the volume. The sound is not annoying. If I'm visiting my parents, I can hear the pager from my room upstairs. The first day we got this for my mom, she was a bit trigger-happy - hitting the button with a big smile watching one of us run to her aid :) since then, shell only hit the button maybe a few times a day for help. I am so grateful for this pager system. It has given us a peace of mind. It is definitely worth it!

This worked very well in our home. We have a ranch home, and didn't have any problems with the alarm being too far away from buttons. This was just what we needed to be able to get to my Mom when she needed us, without having to be right in the room.
This alarm works like a charm
I was very skeptical when I ordered this system. My husband has many health issues and we sleep at opposite ends of the house. This alarm works like a charm. He has had to use the alarm system many times and each and every time he is able to summon me immediately. This is a great product.
Unfortunately the chime sounds like a typical doorbell
Unfortunately the chime sounds like a typical doorbell. In fact it sounds almost exactly like the doorbell in the house. This always leads to confusion. The second option for an alert sound is way too loud and distressing. Still shopping... Other than that, the range is good. The call buttons are mounted to walls, so no loose battery issues.
Mom thinks it's great so i am satisfied
Here's hoping it helps my folks. Dad is not as mobile and sometimes needs mom's help. The only thing he mentioned was that he wished he could hear if she was responding to his call. Mom thinks it's great so i am satisfied.
Works as Expected
Works for us if my 94 year old mother would just push the button! Too proud to ask for help.
I bought this for my 87 year old mom to be able to call her caregiver when needed. They both really like it - works great. Can hear it from other rooms and it has a good range. I like that it has two buttons so we leave one by her bed and she carries the other on her "trolley" her walker. Would buy again.
I also like that the button is large and that I can ...
This item is very helpful. When my dad needs help he just pushes the button. I also like that the button is large and that I can attach pacer to my body. My review would be a 5 if it only had a column button. It is very loud. It is very nerve racking to be sound asleep and saddened you hear this loud blast. It makes me a nervous wreck. There is NOT a clip to put on the patient. It has to go around the neck but my dad got used to it.
Awesome Product that Fits the Bill
Just received today and tested in the house and the product is going to absolutely fill the bill! Works perfectly with the pager on the first floor and button unit in multiple areas of the 2nd level of our home. Easily heard as well. Ordered this to help provide "coverage" for a surgical patient recovering in our home. I'll know when assistance or something else is needed. Can't attest to the longevity of the product just yet, but for the price, it is absolutely fulfilling my needs at a very reasonable price.

overall excellent product works for a pretty good distance and has worked well in our situation
Pretty loud which is great. My elderly disabled father recently moved in with me and we use this and it works perfectly.
Great Deal! Great Product! Buy it!
Bought this to let my 98 year old mom call me instead of 911 if it wasn't an emergency. It works great! The range is the advertised 300 feet (through 7 brick condo walls). The batteries are included, the frequencies are different (my friend bought one for her dad and it did not set off my pager). So happy with this product! Excellent!!
Great for Dad and peace of mind!
Gives me peace of mind if my Dad should need me quickly. He panics when he can't remember how to use his flip phone to call me, so this has been a godsend. Dad is 94, lives across the street from me and while he is still pretty healthy physically, his 'short term memory' is a constant issue. We have tested the range of the 'call button' and have found it has a very long range. Each of our mobile homes is about 72' in length and even with numerous trees in the yards blocking the windows, the unit transmits very well. I did purchase a baby monitor to boost the sound to the back yard where I have a garden; it works great!
Recently, my wife had a minor accident while I was out of the house. I was unaware of it until I came in. I was looking for a personal version of the "Life Alert" system that wasn't too expensive, "Smart Caregiver" fit the bill very well. I smoke, but I don't smoke my cigars in the house. My house is well insulated and sound does not travel to the outside. This wireless system works well. now I will know if my wife needs help, even if I am outside having a smoke.
The only suggestion i would have is one of the rings is like the doorbell so the dogs start barking
My husband is disabled and needs help. This unit has worked flawlessly. He has a call button in the bathroom and one by his bed. I can hear it anywhere in the house as well as on the deck. The only suggestion i would have is one of the rings is like the doorbell so the dogs start barking. The only other ring is a buzz which works but it is not as loud. I would recommend it.

My father has been using this for over three months it is wonderful. He can not speak loud enough to get help and this works wonderful. It has two modes, the doorbell mode is what most will use, it is a loud pleasant sounding doorbell and caregivers can be alerted that help is needed. My father wears it around his neck all the time. This has been an absolute life saver for my father and his caregivers (Guardian Angels - Great Great People). Several of his caregivers have also order more for other clients.
