GetSafe’s Starter Kit comes with one voice-activated wall button, a base station, and a pendant. It costs a little more up-front than systems like Bay Alarm Medical’s landline kit, but you get more equipment for the price.
So although GetSafe isn’t the cheapest medical alert system, it does deliver the best value of all the systems we’ve reviewed. Sure, you’ll have to pay more upfront for any of the equipment packages, but after that, it’s only $27.95 per month.
Bay Alarm Medical’s cheapest system is only a few dollars less and requires a landline for that low price. Medical Guardian costs more than both systems for all the standard features. All three charge the same rate for fall detection in your equipment, but that extra $10 per month can save you in a dire situation.
GetSafe offers more equipment for your money than most medical alert systems. You get the standards like a base station and wearable alert button, but it also includes wall buttons (a major perk if you don’t like wearables).
We like the affordable flat rate for professional monitoring, and the folks you get on the other line are professional and helpful in an emergency. If the downpayment for the equipment doesn’t bother you, GetSafe is worth a look.
