No landline GSM Alarm


 

No landline? Our GSM alarm connects using a SIM card

Our GSM alarms are monitored telecare alarms, for use in homes with no landline. These monitored alarms work via a SIM card. When you press your emergency button, the SIM card connects over a mobile network to our CareLink Control Centre Operators in County Meath. With a GSM alarm, even if you have no landline at home, you can relax knowing that you have a 24-hour connection, should you need help, day or night.

 

How much does the GSM alarm monitoring & SIM cost?

In addition to the cost of the GSM monitored alarm unit (usually paid at the outset or grant aided through the government's Seniors Alert Scheme) the annual 24-hour monitoring cost of the GSM unit is €66. The cost of a 'multi-roaming' SIM card (which protects you by attaching to the strongest phone network) is a further €72 and includes unlimited emergency calls to our monitoring centre from your GSM alarm and button. Meaning with TASK, you'll never have to worry about running out of call credit at a crucial time, or of receiving any unexpected phone bills.

 

What if there is a mobile network outage or poor mobile coverage?

Unfortunately network outages happen for various reasons, on all mobile phone networks (e.g. Three eirMobile or Vodaphone). TASK protects you by using a 'multi-network' SIM that attaches to the strongest mobile phone network. This significantly reduces the possibility of a call failing to reach the monitoring centre in the event of a network outage, or because of poor coverage.  If one network is down, the SIM automatically connects to the strongest alternative network.
