Live independently whether you’re a senior, or just looking for additional protections with FreedomAlert Medical Alert System. Users can program up to four contacts to notify in the case of emergency. The button is splash resistant, so it can also be taken to the shower for additional safety.
- Emergency connections
- No monthly rates
FreedomAlert gives customers a chance to purchase a medical alert system device for their home without having to pay monthly or go through a monitoring center. This system is great for those who are only looking to stay connected to their loved ones in an emergency, rather than being monitored 24/7 by trained medical professionals. This may be a good tool for those looking to make quick calls directly to a caregiver or family members that are responsible to assist them.
There are no monthly rates. They charge for equipment only, not monitoring services. This is just an emergency device to call the few numbers you’d need in emergencies. If a family already has caregiver roles assigned for their loved ones, FreedomAlert may be an acceptable option for direct caregiver communication at the press of a button.
- Expensive upfront
- No monitoring centers
FreedomAlert charges $229.95 or 3 payments of $79.95 for their system which is more expensive than other medical alert system providers up-front. Generally, you can find a system that includes all the same features and more, but pay $30-$40/month instead of purchasing the equipment up front.
There are no actual monitoring centers available. This company just provides a communication device that can program numbers to call in an emergency. It won’t connect the victim to a live operator or offer the user any personal assistance from a certified medical alert professional. Other medical alert companies include the monitoring center with 24/7 monitoring services a vital part of their system. If you or your loved ones prefer live assistance expedite emergencies, I suggest looking into other medical alert systems that include monitoring professionals 24/7.

This company has a unique cost structure. Unlike most competitors in the industry, Freedom Alert does not have monthly payments. Instead, customers either make a one-time payment of $249.95 or three payments of $84.95. Once this payment or these payments are made, the customer owns the equipment forever. It’s as simple as that.
There is a warranty with Freedom Alert products, but it is a one-year Limited Warranty. Most competitors have lifetime warranties.
The company reports that there are no activation or start-up fees, no monitoring costs or any other hidden fees.
There is no mobile alert system. Freedom Alert has one product: its traditional two-way emergency pendant communicator.
The pendant range is up to 600 feet in a free-space environment, typically covering the range of a person’s home and into the yard. Users even have the options to test the range by hitting the “Test” button on the back of the unit.
Technology and Equipment
The Freedom Alert device is much like others in the industry: users wear a pendant or bracelet, where a panic button is located. The pendant has two-way communication and is connected to the base station. Also included is a lanyard, a belt clip, rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and an emergency back-up battery. The unit is small and easy to carry and transport. Users can program up to four numbers in the base station, whether it be 911, family, friends, neighbors or doctors. When needs arise, users push the button, wait for a quick response and wait for help while a responder calmly reassures the user. The device has many worthwhile features. It is waterproof and splash resistant and comes with a test function that gives the user a dial tone and instant peace of mind that the unit is working properly. At extra costs, users may also order an emergency wall communicator, extra pendants, a lock box, four replacement batteries for the base station, and two extra batteries for the pendant. An instruction manual comes with the Freedom Alert. Users may also have the convenience of answering incoming calls with their unit.
Freedom Alert devices may be purchased without contracts of any kind. When one purchases the alert, it is one’s to keep forever.
