Product Description

Product Description

The Lifemax SOS Emergency Phone is big button telephone that gives you your freedom whilst offering friends and family the reassurance of knowing you can contact them no matter what. It comes with a wireless pendant that works on the same technology as your cordless home telephone. The neck or wrist worn SOS button automatically calls five landline or mobile numbers set by you, one after another until answered, then allows you to talk through the pendant.

Like a normal telephone call, you can alert your friend or family member to your situation. They can take immediate action whether it be to call the emergency services or a neighbour or to arrange help with daily chores.

With the added benefit of talking keypad and speaking caller id for those with limited vision.

For those who need closer monitoring the telephone can be set up to connect a call directly through to the pendant without the need to lift the receiver or press the button on the pendant. For additional safety, why not have a spare pendant in the lounge, bedroom and kitchen by adding up to four pendants, each supplied with their own charging cradle and lanyard - item code 1225.1. An optional wrist strap is also available for the Lifemax SOS Emergency Phone - see item code 1225.2.

Mum has fallen a couple of times which was causing a lot of worry to Dad when he wanted to potter in the garden. They are both very independant still despite Mums frailty so, with more hope than expectation, I bought this unit for them. Took it round one evening for them to look over and make sure Mum was happy to use the pendant and arranged to call in the following day to help set it up if they thought it was what they wanted. When I arrived the following day it was up and working already and Dad proudly demonstrated it.
Have to say I'm quite impressed with this system. Pressing the button on the pendant wakes up the base unit which then dials the programmed number (up to 5 can be programmed). When the call is answered a voice gives a short message informing the contact that the pendant has been activated and to press 5 on their keypad to answer. Now the really clever bit is that caller and recipient are now connected and can talk via the pendant. It's not just a button on a string but a fully effective hands free phone device so a conversation can be held. In my view this is what really makes this system stand out and makes it more than just an emergency device too. It can be used as an intercom between house and garden- 'Do you feel like a cuppa?' 'Eastenders is on'. Even a basic mobile phone is confusing to mum these days but she can handle that pendant button so knows she can always contact Dad if she wants to. Excellent.
Very little criticism to make as yet but I did have problems initially charging the pendant. It sat firmly in it's cradle and the light seemed to show it was charging but after 24 hours I removed it and was immmediately told to 'charge battery soon'.

a one off charge and you own it, no £35/Month rental offered by the care services.
the only problem is that the panic button is easily pressed for a false alarm,
i always phone back if i receive any false alarm, so no real hardship,
the ease that my mother can talk to me through the panic button is a big selling point to me,
as she does not need to get to the phone to answer incoming calls.
it works anywhere in the house or garden, without loss of signal, as advertised.
Thank you.

The build quality is good and the key issue is that the pendant is a speak and receive device that can be used to receive calls without needing to use the main phone. This is unlike some earlier models that can only transmit outgoing calls on the pendant with reception through a loudspeaker which in some cases may be too far away for the respondent to hear clearly.

Bought for my frail elderly father who hates technology and is pretty deaf. As he lives across the road I really wanted a unit that would contact me directly rather than going via a call centre with the need to pay for installation and monthly rental/call centre charges.
Although the instructions look complicated I managed to install and setup with no problems (which is unusual for me !)
After a few mispresses on his part he has accepted it although he keeps the panic button in a box in his pocket as it is set off very easily.
It is good to be able to talk to him directly via the panic button to ascertain the nature of the emergency. The other systems I looked at all had speaker units at the base unit which I know he could not hear from another room and I suspect the call centre could not hear him however sensitive the unit might be.
I do find when recharging the panic button that the connection with the charger is positional and you need to be sure that the connection light is on.

I would have given 5 stars for this phone but for one hitch. It is a great caller of specially chosen emergency phone numbers, and when there is a phone call the emergency button rings, and it is also possible to speak through the emergency button , which acts like a mobile phone around the neck.this is great. The weak point is the emergency button which is large and also a trifle heavy for a weak patient to keep around the neck, and rather over sensitive, which can tend to make it turn to the emergency mode. I just keep this button by the side of my husband's bed and hope he only touches it when there is an emergency!

Having to leave an octogenarian relative alone whilst we go out, we wanted something that would allow her to contact us in the event of problems. This works well - almost too well. My only issue is with the pendant unit, where the 'SOS' button is too easily caught, resulting in regular false alarms. It should have a guard over it, or should require a firmer, more positive pressure. Other than that niggle, our relative likes it - and is reassured that we can be contacted whenever necessary. The Amazon price was also very good - being much cheaper than most other suppliers. Recommended.

The phone is great, the idea superb. The execution however is lacking with a major flaw. One of the major issues I faced was when my father wore this around his neck. The phone would dial out when the keyfob was accidentally activated as it bumped things. The button is far too sensitive and a more effective design would have been to sense the continual press of the call button for say 1 second. This would have eliminated the accidental activations. How on earth they missed this important flaw I do not know.
Lifemax do have a wrist pouch ... £12.95 ??? Grossly overpriced I feel when you can buy mobile phone pouches for 1/4 of the price.

Also, when it does dial out, there should be an adequately audible signal to the fob wearer. There is a light but this is of no use in the case of an accidental activation. People who use this are elderly - not engineers at lab desks!

Hence my low marking.
