Only One Option
Unfortunately, Lifenet only offers one option for service, making it difficult to determine if this service is best for you. Though Lifenet’s service includes EMT-assistance through the phone, the company doesn’t offer GPS in the equipment, eliminating those consumers who may want more technology in their equipment.
Phone Line Required
Also, with this service, a phone line is necessary, rather than using a cellular service to include customers from all backgrounds and needs.
There are no contracts with this company. You can pay on a month-to-month basis and you only need to let the company know 30 days in advance.
There’s no information about Lifenet’s refund policy on the website.
“In no way does this summation strive to compensate for reading the actual terms of service or contract provided by this company. We are providing this information to allow consumers to see the points of the contract that we believe you should be aware of. Please refer to the company’s terms of service or contract document to see the full details.”
Though there is no warranty details, they do have a service policy, which is as follows:
“We will replace all parts at no charge, and advance ship them free to you as long as your system is used as intended.” With most life alert companies, the company will not only charge you for shipping, but also for replacement pieces. Lifenet excludes both preying policies from their company.
Though Lifenet doesn’t have any accreditations, it does have EMT Certified 24/7 Assistance.
