System & Hardware
Our HomeSafe Standard System is an affordable way to help you maintain your independence, while being prepared in the event of an emergency. This includes a Help Button, a Communicator, and 24/7 access to our Canadian based Response Centre Associates. You can select a Help Button pendant to wear around your neck or, if you prefer, a wristband style Help Button.
Personal alert button
Wear the HomeSafe emergency button in the fashion that suits you. Choose from a medical alert pendant that is worn around the neck or a wristband that adjusts to fit your wrist.
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 medical pendant is comfortably worn over or under clothing.
When you press your Help Button in range of a Communicator, the Communicator dials our Response Centre.
Up to 30 hours of battery backup gives you access to help even during power outages.
The Communicator conducts regular status checks to confirm proper operation. Have confidence knowing your system can alert Lifeline in the event system maintenance is required.
No phone line needed

Frequently Asked Questions
Why can’t the fall detections be worn on the wrist?
Our Fall Detection is designed to be the most accurate. We do that based off of height and speed. If there is a sudden decrease in height and a sudden increase in speed, the Help Button can believe a fall is taking place. People talk with their hands so it would fool the button into what is going on and may not go off when needed.
With the Home Safe Landline with Fall Detection, will you be able to get the signal from my garden? Will you be able to hear me?
The range of our Homesafe system is a 350-foot radius and is quite broad, we can receive the signal even if a client is not in the same room which usually includes the front or back yard. We would perform a range test to ensure we have set up the communicator is the best location for optimal range. We would not hear our client if they were in a backyard and windows are closed, but keep in mind verbal communication is never mandatory as a client can be 2 feet away from the speaker, and is non-verbal – as long as we receive the signal within the 350 foot radius we will contact responders/emergency services as needed to assist our clients.
How big is the button worn on the wrist? How big is the Fall detection?
The Homesafe standard button is 1 1/2 inches long, 1 inch wide, 1/2 inch thick. 2 1/2 inches long, 1.1 inches wide, 1/2 inch thick
If the Fall is detected, who do we contact first?
If the client is responsive, we will speak to them through the 2-way communicator to discuss what has happened and call responders/emergency services as needed. If the client is unresponsive, then we will try calling over the phone. If there is no answer over the phone, we will then call 911 then call the list of responders.
