PERS-1 Personal Emergency Response System
The Alpha Communications® PERS-1 is a Personal Emergency Response System designed to get you the help you need when you can't do so yourself. 

This system is ideal for Seniors, people with disabilities or medical conditions (heart disease, high blood pressure, asthma, etc.), latch-key children, and people who live alone. Now you don't have to worry about how you will contact emergency services or your family should you be unable to get to the phone.

A simple press of the wireless pendant transmitter automatically dials an emergency phone number, putting you in touch with family or a 24-hour central station monitoring service (provided separately at additional cost). You have the choice between two convenient transmitter devices, a wireless necklace chain type or wristwatch type pendant, that you can wear at all times. When an emergency occurs, you can immediately activate your Personal Emergency Response System , and get the help you need.
