I feel good because I have Philips Lifeline. I pushed the button one time and their response time was good.
Carmen, Thank you for providing your valuable feedback. We are glad to hear you are happy with everything. Please be well, safe, and take care.
My Philips Lifeline works fine. I have had where I've accidentally hit my panic button when I was carrying something and almost dropped it, not any kind of emergency thing, but where it set it off as one. They’d responded even when it wasn't an emergency. I haven't had any difficulties with my Philips Lifeline. We had to do some reset at one time when my son was here, but it had all been resolved. I'd highly recommend them.
Carol, We appreciate you taking the time and sharing your valuable feedback with us. Thank you for recommending our service. We understand that the button can be pressed in error and it's ok. I'm glad to hear our response team is responding appropriately and glad you are ok. Please be well, safe and take care.
Our experience with Philips Lifeline has been great. My mother goes nowhere without it. She has set it off a few times and they have immediately called her back. It just makes you feel safe. They were pleasant too when they called.

I'm happy with my Philips Lifeline. A couple of times I messed up when I bumped into something and hit it and they called me right away. I told them that I'm fine, that I just happened to hit it. One time, my daughter called the emergency and the ambulance got here. They had a hard time getting me out of the house. But other than that, it was all right. I'm very satisfied.

They have a good product and they were fine anytime I've had to call. I had to get a new button a couple of years ago and they helped me install it.

The device works out fine. My kids let me live alone because I have it. Also, I appreciate it because the other device was costing me $70 a month. I found out I could get Philips Lifeline through my insurance, so I'm very happy. When I cut my leg and it was bleeding real bad, I had to call the EMS. The people at Philips were very kind and efficient.
Rosemary, Thank you for your review and providing this valuable feedback. We are happy to hear we were there for you when you needed us. Please be well, safe, and take care.
They are friendly and helpful.
Philips Lifeline combined the devices for me and my wife to one instead of two. But every time you hit the button, when they come on, it's just for me. They just ask me if I'm all right and don’t even mention her. But they're the ones that did it with two buttons but one machine. Also, none of my buttons are working again and I can't test my equipment unless I hit the button on top. If I push the panic button on top, they're gonna answer. If I'm in another room or something, that doesn't do me any good. Other than that, Philips is the best. I've had them for over a year now and I've had no problems with it.
Stephen, Thank you for taking the time and sharing your feedback with us. We are sorry to hear that your buttons are not working. I'm going to send an e-mail to the supervisor of the department that troubleshoots the equipment to ensure that a representative calls you back to correct this. Please be well, safe, and take care.
Philips Lifeline is nice to have. I’ve had it quite a while now. Their team is okay. Everything’s been just really nice as far as I'm concerned.
Berma, We are glad to hear that you feel secure with our service. We are always here for you. Please be well, safe, and take care.
I use my medical alert device every day because I do walk with a cane and my kids are afraid I'll fall and I can't get up. When my caregiver's here, sometimes I just take it off and lay it aside. But I wouldn't go without it. I feel very secure with it. If an old person is living alone, they need something like Philips Lifeline.
Shirley, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We are very happy to hear that you feel secure and happy with our service. Please be well, safe, and take care.
