System & Hardware
Philips Lifeline offers dependable, convenient, and purpose-built technology, assembled and tested by Lifeline. What does that mean to you? Just like how in the event of an emergency, you can get help quickly, we’re also available to monitor our equipment. It’s self-checking and notifies the Response Centre if it detects a power failure or low battery.
Personal alert button
The HomeSafe with AutoAlert help button is worn as a pendant with an adjustable neck cord. This small, discreet device includes the added protection of automatic fall detection.
Having AutoAlert means that you can rest easy knowing if a fall occurs and leaves you confused or even unconscious, the fall detection will automatically alert our Response Centres that help may be needed.1
HomeSafe with AutoAlert is the most proven fall detection technology in a pendant on the Canadian market today. Over 200,000 falls have been detected by AutoAlert.
Wear your help button in the bath or in the shower, where falls in the home are most likely to occur.
Battery is long-lasting, and we’ll automatically replace it when needed.
As your most dependable accessory, the lightweight pendant is comfortably worn over or under clothing.
When you push your button or it detects a fall, it triggers your home communicator to dial our 24 hour Response Centre. When the call connects, it allows for two-way voice communication between you and the Personal Response Associate.

The Communicator conducts regular system checks and will automatically alert Lifeline if maintenance is required.

Get the most out of Lifeline by adding AutoAlert Fall Detection
Getting help quickly helps prevent further injury
Being down for more than 2 hours can increase the risk of medical problems that could be prevented by getting help quickly. A previous fall is one of the strongest predictors for recurring falls. Delayed intervention or prolonged lie times after a fall may result in secondary, serious complications that very likely require hospitalization and could be avoided by having quick access to help. HomeSafe with AutoAlert service can speed intervention and mitigate complications resulting from a fall.
AutoAlert is the most widely adopted automatic fall detection in Canada. Its superior technology is designed to automatically detect most falls – and achieve a low rate of false alarms – by distinguishing between actual falls and everyday activities like sitting, standing and reclining. It even gives you 30 seconds to cancel an alarm, or you can cancel by starting to stand back up.
One half of older adults cannot get up from a fall without help
In a study of Lifeline users, we found that seniors can’t or don’t push the button in up to 30% of serious fall emergencies. Without fall detection, senior falls can go undetected for hours, even days without receiving emergency medical attention. Philips Lifeline can help connect you to the assistance you request, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
How HomeSafe Service Works
1. Summon help
HomeSafe with AutoAlert automatically places a call for help after 30 seconds if a fall is detected and you cannot press your Personal Help Button because you are disoriented, immobilized, or unconscious after a fall.
2. Hear a reassuring voice
A caring Philips Lifeline response associate will quickly access your personal profile and assess the situation.
3. Know help is on the way
Our response associate contacts a neighbour, loved one, or emergency services – based on your preferences – and will follow up to make sure help has arrived.
