How will this change affect my personal alarm?
If you’re with CareTech, you needn’t worry. All of our products are futureproof and won’t be affected by the switchover.
This isn’t true of every organisation though. So if you’re with another provider or thinking of using a different personal alarm service, it’s important that you make sure their products aren’t landline dependent or that they are working towards mitigating any interruptions to service during the switchover.
How do CareTech personal alarms work?
CareTech devices don’t rely on landlines or the internet, but instead use built-in SIM cards to connect to monitoring centres. These connections are incredibly reliable and mean our range of personal alarms won’t be affected by the upcoming changes to the telecoms network.
