Home monitored Medical emergency alarm
Posted: 4th February 2012
If you suffer from a particular medical condition - for example diabetes, epilepsy, down's syndrome, heart conditions, Parkinson' syndrome or even something like Cancer - then getting a good burglar alarm for your home that also acts as a home 24/7 medical emergency alarm is really important. The AMCO monitored alarm is the perfect / best medical and emergency response system for medical emergencies, as it provides protection in burglary, fire and medical emergency situations when at home. The great thing about an AMCO monitored alarm is that it includes *immediate audio response*meaning that in an emergency scenario our monitoring team can immediately listen and talk into the property, allowing us to check what the situation is and call the emergency services if necessary. The key special thing about an AMCO monitored alarm is the fact it comes with a speaker / microphone unit, which means that our monitoring station can immediately listen and talk into a property. The speaker / microphone unit is usually positioned centrally in a house, for example in the hall, so that our monitoring station can easily listen throughout the whole house, and talk to check what the status of the emergency is. The listening and talking bit of AMCO's monitored alarms is the thing that saved the life of one of our customers - a Mr. A from Preston - who suffers from diabetes. In Mr. A's case, he arrived home and suffered from a hypo-glycemic attack whilst lighting a fire which rendered him unconscious and then led to his front-room rug catching fire. Luckily Mr. A had an AMCO alarm with a smoke detector which was activated by the smoke from the rug. Immediately our monitoring station could listen and talk into the property, identifying the fact that Mr. A was in a distressed situation, and then quickly calling the fire and ambulance services. Thanks to the swift response of the Preston emergency services, Mr. A was saved! You can watch a video interview with Mr A. below, explaining what happened with his diabetes related emergency scenario, and how his AMCO monitored alarm saved his life: If you need any more information about AMCO's special monitored medical alarm systems, then check out our website page here.
