- Refund policy
Mobile Alert Systems has some great technology options for the system they offer. With its GPS technology, you are not only covered in your home, but wherever you go outside of your home. No matter where you end up, confused or just in need of help, you can contact an associate just by pressing a button.
With this service, you will be connected to AT&T service, so your GPS should work across the United States, even if you end up moving. Though you can’t use this service internationally, you will be able to use it wherever you regularly go.
Mobile Alert Systems also has a great refund policy, offering a partial refund of unused time for any month after the first three month contract.
- Single option
- No medically trained staff
- Poor online transparency
Though Mobile Alert System has a great option for service, there is only one option, compared to any other service with multiple options, including medication dispensers and lockbox services.
No Medically Trained Staff
Mobile Alert System also doesn’t have a staff that is medically trained, making it more difficult for them to help determine what is wrong with a customer.
Poor Online Transparency
The website also lists only one service, but lists a few different types of buttons that we assume you can purchase. Unfortunately they don’t list whether you get each type of button, or whether you only get one type of button, but you get the choice. If the website was clearer, and had more information about how the service specifically works, it would be easier to determine whether this service worked for you or not.
There are no contracts with Mobile Alert Systems. After the initial three month trial, you are able to pay month-to-month for however long you need the service. The contract will automatically renew unless the party gives written notice of intent to cancel. The contract also states that “Failure to return all equipment in satisfactory condition will result in a charge of $459.40. Your account will continue to be billed at $39.95/ month until our unit is returned in good working order.”
You are entitled to a refund for any unused portion of prepaid monitoring if you cancel after the three month minimum
