So far I have been very pleased with the product and the customer service for the system my mother is using; she has also been quite pleased. All of the Customer Service Reps we have dealt with have been most pleasant, helpful and responsive.

I purchased this for my mom 6 months ago, so it is still fairly new to her. Only had to test it a couple of times just to see the response time. It took @ 30 seconds to get a reply. In my opinion a fairly fast response time.

I no longer subscribe to Bay Alarm Medical because I am now in an Assisted Living Facility. My experience with Bay Alarm was generally favorable. Representatives were always courteous and helpful. The only problem I experienced was occasional false alarms. This could be easily corrected by recessing the push button slightly...just an eighth of an inch would suffice. As designed, the push button is flush with the surface of the pendant. This results in sending a false signal when the button brushes the edge of a table or is pressed inadvertently while sleeping. I eventually made a cover that protected the button yet allowed it to be pressed easily. The Company virtually ignored my comments about this matter.

I got this for my Mother several years ago after she had a stroke. So far, we've been lucky that she hasn't used it. But she lives alone and I'm 300 miles away although I have siblings that are closer. It's just a relief to know she has it.

My father had fallen and was unable to move. When Bay Alarm Medical folks did not receive an answer from him, they immediately dispatched the EMT to his residence and then proceeded to call everyone on his contact list. He was taken to the ER, treated, and released that snowy evening. BAM provided fast action and professional care.

We had the alarm system in my Mother in laws house without any issues. When she moved to an adult complex you had to dial 9 to get an outside line. We were assured the system would work. After trying 2 different units over several different months they could not get wither to work. One service person said we had to get the GPS system that ses a cellular service at a higher cost. Cellular service in her apartment is almost non existent. I have spent almost 2 months trying to get the units returned with no help from the customer service department. After many calls and emails I have still not received return shipping labels. The low rating is directly due to the poor customer service. If you live in a private residence that does not require you to dial 9 to get an outside line the system should work fine. If you live in a complex that has a central phone system that requires you to dial 9 to get an outside line, find a different service provider and save alot of frustration.

I obtained Bay Alarm because of its high satisfaction of customers. However, due to a temporary financial problem, I had to cancel. I should have cancelled the day before however I was charged the full amount for a six month period. Their customer service representative was very cold and firm in her manner of speaking to me and would not consider giving me any kind of refund so I paid the $150 for six months for no service. One week later Hurricane Matthew came through my town and my home/car was flooded. That money would have helped me get through a horrible period of my life. I will never give Bay Alarm my business not only because of their refund policy but also because of their lack of compassion.

The system worked fine in the time we had it ( activating the necklace, called by mistake), EXCEPT in a real emergency. The button never connected to the base unit during what could have been a fatal emergency. Fortunately our mother was able to telephone for help. Should she have fallen, passed out, or unable to reach the phone to call us, she would have died. The best Bay Alarm could do was to tell me how to de-activate it and re-package the unit. They offered a 1 month refund. At the end of the conversation, the "supervisor" told me to have a nice day.....UGH! Read user reviews from an independent source rather than the website.

Bay alarm medical refused to follow Illinois state law and has lied to the better business bureau. They tried to auto bill after we told them that mom had moved to a nursing home and would no longer require their services. Illinois law requires a minimum of 30 days and a maximum of 60 days notice before auto renewing a contract. No written notice at all was provided. Billing was sent after credit card charge did not go thru. mom did sign a contract with an auto renewal policy. Illinois law is designed to protect consumers from unethical auto renewals. This company has an ethics and a legal problem. When their error was pointed out they simply lied and said that they had provided written notice. Not true.

My siblings and I purchased an alarm from (and set up service with) Bay Alarm Medical for our mother in May 2016. I was immediately charged for the alarm pendant. Thinking we were taking advantage of a discount, we set up our account to pay for the service semi-annually. After several days, I noticed that I had not been charged for the upcoming six months of service and that the equipment (receiver) had not shipped. I called and was informed that there had been an error and had to request that they put through the charge again. Nobody had notified me! Further, at no time did anyone point out that, should my mother pass away and we cancel the service during this six-month period, no refund would be given for the portion of the six-month period occurring after her death (i.e., Bay Alarm does not prorate their service). My mother passed away in mid-August (2 ½ months into the six-month period), and within days I called Bay Alarm to cancel the service. I encountered the rudest, most unfeeling customer service representative of my entire life, and she left me in tears. When I expressed surprise that no refund would be forthcoming, she repeatedly told me that I had agreed to it (in the fine print) when I set up the service. She was also very rude in informing me (multiple times) that I would be charged for another six months if I didn't return the equipment before the end of the six-month period we had prepaid. Never once was there any expression of condolence for our loss, or in fact any kind word at all. After receiving an email confirmation that the service had been cancelled, we unplugged the receiver (as the representative had directed). Immediately, my deceased mother's cell phone rang, startling all of us. Then my cell phone rang and each of my siblings' phones rang. Clearly the representative failed to properly cancel the service. We called Bay Alarm back and spoke to another representative, who was also rude and argued with us, not once apologizing for Bay Alarm's error or their lack of kindness. Eventually we spoke to a manager, who assured us that the account was properly canceled and apologized. Since then, my siblings and I have received additional auto-generated phone calls from Bay Alarm. I eventually blocked the number from my cell phone. My husband called Bay Alarm last week (mid-October) to confirm the details on returning the equipment. Unbelievably, he was informed that a copy of my mother's death certificate was required to close the account (even though we are not getting a refund!). He was treated as if this were the first time anyone had notified Bay Alarm of the cancellation! That, in turn, generated an email expressing condolence and explaining how to return the equipment. However, I am still receiving reminders about an upcoming billing payment that is scheduled, even after Bay Alarm confirmed that they received the equipment! All I can do is shake my head. You sort of assume that the loved one for whom you are purchasing this service will pass away at some point during the contract with Bay Alarm. Customer service representatives should be trained on dealing with grieving loved ones. Bay Alarm should discontinue their greedy practice of failing to refund a prorated amount of the service fees. At the very least, this greedy policy of not prorating service fees should be prominently disclosed to new customers. Bay Alarm's internal computer systems need to be updated to communicate with one another, and people need to be more respectful. I can't believe this company has such good reviews. I would NEVER recommend this company to anyone!

Do not buy this unit - I researched many life alert devices before choosing Bay Alarm Medical. The installation was very easy and it seemed as though it was a good choice for my elderly parents. At 3 am on Friday August 19, 2016 the device malfunctioned. Several phone calls were made by Bay per our instructions and the paramedics were called out. Here is the problem. The base unit was unable to communicate through the speaker. If it was working, my sister, who was staying at the house, would have heard it and would have let Bay know it was a false alarm. They called the house which woke my sister. She was unable to get to the phone in time. Bay did not even leave a message, so she was confused about who would be calling at 3am. The next thing she knows is the paramedics coming into the house through the garage. They informed her that they were dispatched by Bay Medical. So she and the paramedics checked on my folks. They were sound asleep and the alert buttons were on the bedside table. I went to the house a few days later and tested the base unit. It could not complete the call so I had to reset it. After that it seemed to work fine. So I called Bay Medical. They informed me that the monitor detected a fall. Turns out that was impossible since the buttons were on the night stand. Due to the fact that Bay Medical unit is unreliable and we are now being charged for the paramedics, (Bay was not willing to take ownership,) This will likely cost several hundreds of dollars. I am returning the unit. We will see how that goes. UPDATE: I called to return the unit and get my money back. They said I missed free trial period by one day. So not only did they not take ownership of the malfunction, they would not even give me one days grace. Terrible customer service.

Bay Alarm was set up for my mother who is quite old and is battling cancer. After a visit to my mom's apartment and seeing the alarm unit on the table I thought to myself that I can't recall seeing a bill for this recently. I asked my mother, who was actually in the hospital at the time if she remembered seeing a bill and she couldn't recall. My guess is a bill came and she or her nurse must have thrown it away by mistake. The reason this was important to me is that I am responsible for all my mom's financial needs (yes, I have a durable POA). As the responsible person for all my mom's financial needs I called into Bay Alarm to pay the bill and the customer service people were more than horrific. I explained the situation and they said that my mom needed to pay an amount. I asked if they could tell me what the annual amount was for the service and they refused saying they could only speak with my mother. I told them her situation and they said due to confidentiality reasons they could not discuss the annual amount of the service. After going back and forth and them, yes them.......sharing with me the address of my mother and her age.....they still refused to tell me the amount of the annual service. I wanted to know the amount as I was going to set up recurring annual payments to them so nobody would have to worry about this going forward. They still refused. They released PII (personal identifiable information) to me but refused to share the amount of the annual subscription. They gave me such a hard time and were so rude to me that all I could think of were two things: 1. They were more concerned about protecting their pricing scheme than they are her personal information. Being able to get them to share with me her address and her age was quite comical seeing that they would not tell me the annual amount of the service even though I was giving them MY credit card information to make recurring annual payments and even though I have a durable POA which a copy had been sent to them when the account was opened years ago. 2. Are these the people I want my mom dealing with if she ever were to have a problem? Absolutely not! Their careless attitude towards protecting the annual pricing terms while releasing personal information with no hesitation leads me to believe that the values of this company and the operating procedures must not be aligned with my expectations of such a service. To top it all off, as I requested to speak with a supervisor, the woman I was speaking with passed me off to her colleague and not a supervisor. On top of that, when I called back a second time and asked to speak with a supervisor, the woman said she would pass me to a supervisor, put the phone on hold, and then came back to the phone attempting to disguise her voice as someone else. It was so clear and so evident!!!!! Here is the kicker!!!!! Since I had the name of the woman and I obviously knew the name of the company, I looked on LinkedIn to find her and noticed that prior to working with Bay Alarm she was a service associate for THE ABSOLUTE WORST COMPANY IN THE WORST INDUSTRY FOR CUSTOMER SERVICE. Yes, she worked for Comcast prior to Bay Alarm Medical. That explained it all. Service cancelled and now I have a new top tier company providing this service for my mom. I wish we had gone to the Better Business Bureau site to check this company out prior to engaging. Tons of complaints. Just read them and then ask yourself, are these the types of people I want protecting my loved one's in case of an emergency. NOPE!!!

BEWARE of this company!!! I asked numerous questions before purchase, including what kind of connections did I need in my home for their equipment to work. I was told as long as I had Time Warner as my provider there was nothing else I needed to know. When the equipment arrived the 1st thing I saw when I opened the box was "Equipment does not work with a splitter". However, I can only connect WITH a splitter so I called Bay & they calmly aknowledged they "never advise potential customers the equipment isn't compatible with a splitter." I NEVER would have ordered it, had my questions been answered completely & accurately. It cost me $34.00 to send it back & they refused to reimburse me. I have reported them to BBB!

I extremely upset with this company because I feel I was cheated out of my money. When I received the medical devices for my grandmother, there were several false alarms which prompted me to end services. I sent an email AND a phone call disconnecting services and I sent the devices back. (I purposely had this done BEFORE the next cycle of billing to avoid additional payments.) Several months after, I received a call from a debt collector regarding a bill for 3 months of disconnected services. (The company didn't even inform me about the bill. It went straight to the debt collector, who told me my credit will be affected if I did not pay.) Even with proof that I ended services and sent everything back, they are still making me pay, which I feel is ridiculous and wrong, especially for a company that is suppose to be built on helping those who care about the safety and well being of their loved ones. This is really wrong! I will not be recommending this company to anyone in my community.

Order online. Item came fast. Had for 6 months but never hook up . Company never realized it was not activated. Called to cancel and you can't get a rep on the line. Finally after 4 days of calling I got through and will send unit back but will be charged until they receive it and it take up to 2 weeks to process. There are better options out there don't settle.

Customer service is terrible, did not even try to resolve problem. You can't even post a review on their site, what does that tell you. They won't stand behind their own equipment. Don't order online because you don't get all the facts. Like the other guy, you'll end up paying for the equipment. The only response from customer service is that's not our policy.
