Neo - The CareLine SN6187 and Panasonic systems, each connected to your phone line, can certainly work in the same location. They will operate independently of each other. Caution: If the Panasonic has an answering system, turn either the VTech or Panasonic answering device off. You only want one taking messages. Thanks!

Will the unit terminate another call in progress to make the emergency call immediately?

E.g. someone else is leaving a long message on the answering machine, at this moment the person is having an emergency and need to dial 911 immediately?

answer 2
Micky - Range is a variable, influenced by several environmental factors, such as the construction of the home or office, the number of walls the signal is penetrating, and other radio (RF) transmissions in the area. Our DECT 6.0 technology products offer excellent range potential; however, we cannot tell you in advance how far the pendant will work from the base. Thanks!

He should be able to push the button on the pendent to answer his calls.
If you use the receiver, it is like a regular phone and have to answer it as such. The pendent would be better if he shakes.

gotpickled - On the SN6187 - the handset must be picked up to make or answer a call. However, the handset does have a speakerphone features, so your relative can simply press the SPEAKERPHONE button, place the handset down, and have a conversation. Also, consider the SN6197, which has a base speakerphone as well. Thanks!
