To summon help you must be able to push a large button on the face of the responder. There are systems that monitor your movements and summon help if there is no movement for a certain period of time. This is not one of those systems.

Question

Can I have multiple users on the same monthly account?

I have two elderly in-laws living in their own home without caregivers. Can they each have a device on the same monthly account? In other words, can two devices be activated at the same time or do we need two separate accounts, one for each device?

It works according to verizon cell phone tower usage & the kind of reception from that tower. It seemed to take awhile to set it up right, lots of questions to be answered online but with necessary medical info in case u ever have to call them for help. Once that was all done & there was reception for verizon tower it was fine.

It should work. It doesn't have a base to work off of. It works according to the reception you get from verizon cell phone towers. I don't think you would need 2 units. We got my brother one unit that he carries with him & he travels all around too.

Go to Great Call website --maybe even Walmart page--I think I found on the sale page of Walmart a place where you can verify by area code.

Either on Walmart web page or Great Call you can verify with zip code whether I will work there. I think it covers just about everywhere. The people are very cordial and you can get their tele number from their website

It works according to the reception in your area from the verizon cell phone towers. I'm not really sure of the monthly fee because we gave it as a gift last Christmas. But I think it was $19.99 a month.
