V.ALRT Review – Mother’s Day Guide
As our parents age, and come on now, as we age….. It is time we start thinking about safety. In this electronics age, we have a wide variety of products we can use that can help our loved ones stay safe. V.ALRT is such a product.
When I was approached to review the V.ALRT for my guide, I checked out their website, and after talking back and forth for a moment, I wanted to tell you about my family member. Without naming her, or even telling you about how she is related, I wanted to tell you that she has some disabilities. A few of her medical issues which makes her being left alone without a way to contact someone should something happen are COPD, and Osteoarthritis, and she has already had two heart attacks. She is in her early 40’s.
Way too young.
V.ALRT is an incredible, easy, and affordable way to keep her independence, yet, simple to use in case of a fall, or even, another heart attack. It is a button. In the package, it comes with a watch band, a pendant to wear around the neck. You do need a smartphone in order to use this.
Download the ap to the phone, then input the information. Her V.ALRT will send both a call and a text to her significant other, and myself. We then can call her or text her. No response? It gives her location in which we can alert the EMT.
The customer service is beyond amazing. We had an issue with her phone not connecting right. They offered to send her a phone if she changed her carrier, as they also have phones. They also kept looking for a solution with her current phone, and her phone carrier actually had a fix. She updated her phone, and now, no more issues!
V.ALRT is $59.99 and no monthly service fees. You do need to have a compatible phone, and stay within Bluetooth range in order for the product to work. But, since she is never without her phone. It works great!
