Systems can include wall-mounted buttons, traditional wearable alert buttons and fall detection. The company requires customers to purchase equipment, regularly priced between $79 and $307, and pay a $29.95 monthly monitoring fee. Fall detection is available for an additional $10 per month.

    Pros & Cons


    • Optional fall detection
    • No landline required
    • 30-day trial period


    • Upfront equipment fees

    Bottom Line

    GetSafe Medical Alert specializes in-home systems. We like that it offers a flat-rate fee for standard monitoring services, but equipment charges are more expensive than other systems we’ve reviewed.

    How GetSafe Medical Alert works

    Unlike most systems that require you to push a button, GetSafe’s voice-enabled two-way communication consoles allow you to get help by saying, “Call 911” twice.

    GetSafe offers free standard shipping, and its installation process requires no landlines. Plus, all systems are backed by UL-certified 24/7 medical alert monitoring centers.

    You can add wall buttons, communication consoles and other equipment to any plan. Wall buttons can be strategically placed by stairs, hallways and other high-risk areas. The company equips its communication consoles with amplified speakers and sensitive microphones to ensure clarity during an emergency.

    GetSafe Medical Alert FAQ

    Do I have to sign a contract to get a GetSafe system?

    GetSafe has no-contract options that provide flexibility, but you can choose to sign a contract to receive equipment savings.

    Does GetSafe offer a free trial period?

    GetSafe offers a 30-day trial period for medical alert equipment. During this time, you can return any unsatisfactory product for a full refund minus shipping costs.

    What is GetSafe’s cancellation policy?

    There’s no cancellation fee if you cancel your GetSafe medical alert service after the 30-day trial period, but there will not be a prorated refund. Equipment does not need to be returned when you cancel.

    Does GetSafe make a good medical alert?

    Overall, GetSafe is worth considering if you want an in-home system and remember how to operate it in an emergency. We like that packages are customizable — you can add wall buttons, communication consoles and other equipment to any plan to maximize protection. We like that you get free standard shipping and that the installation process seems straightforward.

    However, while this voice-activated unit is ideal for those who can remember basic instructions, there might be better choices for users with cognitive impairments who may not remember how to operate the system.
