- No fall detection
- Lack of information
- Not a lot of experience
Aloha Alarm has some shortcomings and negative aspects that you should be aware of before deciding to do business with the company. Here are a few things to consider that may cause you to go with another provider:
No Fall Detection
A fall detection device should be part of every medical alert device provider, but you won’t find it with Aloha Alarm. Falls are one of the most common problems with seniors, and having an automatic detection device brings peace of mind to users and loved ones. The fact Aloha Alarm doesn’t have such a tool should be a big concern to any prospective customer.
Lack of Information
When you make a visit to the Aloha Alarm website, you’ll probably be disappointed in what you see. The company doesn’t provide much in-depth information about its alert devices. If you want to know basic information such as pricing, warranties, contract details and other commonly asked questions, you’ll have to call a company representative.
Not a Lot of Experience
Aloha Alarm has only been in business for five years. Many companies across the country have been operating in the medical alert business for many more years. This isn’t necessarily an indictment against Aloha Alarm, but it does place the company at a disadvantage when comparing it with more experiencing competitors.
