How does a medical alert work?

When you buy a medical alert from WH Security, you’re buying peace of mind for both the user and their family. 

When you buy a medical alert from WH Security, you’re buying peace of mind for both the user and their family. With a simple push of a button, trained dispatchers are alerted and will reach out to offer assistance in a matter of seconds. They will then contact the proper emergency personnel to get help fast. 

WH Security offers different communication options for medical alerts to meet your needs. Our in-home solutions can be worn either on the wrist or around the neck and contain a single button. Fall detection pendants (word around the neck) are also available, which automatically senses the action of a fall. When a fall is detected or the button is pressed, our 24/7 monitoring center will be alerted. An in-home personal medical alert will help users maintain independence. 

Our on-the-go solution is powered by GPS technology with Wi-fi location services, allowing you to go almost anywhere and be confident that if you need it, help is just a push of a button away. This solution has a 4-day battery life.

Individuals with medical alerts simply press the button any time they need assistance. They can press it if there is a medical situation, if they become lost, if they do not feel safe in their surroundings, or if they witness something bad happen and first responders are needed.

The units are not fully waterproof but are water resistant. They can be worn in the shower but shouldn’t be submerged for a long period of time. If the device falls into standing water and is removed quickly, it will still work.

WH Security’s medical alerts are monitored by WHIRC, which is a leading national central station monitoring partner for residential personal emergency/medical response system dealers. If the button is pressed at any time, trained dispatchers will reach out 24/7.
