How it works

If you do not have a lifeline alarm fitted this will be the first thing you need to do. Once this has been fitted you can then select from a range of sensors which can be installed and connected to your lifeline alarm. Once set up, if any of your sensors are activated a call will be automatically put through to the control centre and dealt with in an appropriate and efficient manner.

Types of sensor
