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!

Can you make other calls other than the 2 emergency ones from the pendent?

From the pendant you can only make the two calls that you program in. But you can answer the phone when someone calls you and talk hands-free (speaker-phone). The pendant and phone will say the number calling after the second ring, so you know who's calling before answering. I love mine!!

Question

Monthly Phone Bill

I am trying to fully understand how this product works before I invest in it for my mother. I pay the $79.95 + tax, shipping etc. Once I get the phone and set it up that is all I have to do from what I am reading by other people who've previously purchased the product. BUT what I am not reading/understanding is does this STILL require you to pay a monthly fee of ANY kind to your current home phone company provider. This is NOT covered in ANY Q&A. All that I am reading is that no monthly monitoring fees required like you'd be paying for Life Alert. Trying to make my mom's bills cheaper not add to them. Thank you for clearing this up. :)

I have this system, you program your phone number in #1 and ever who you want #2 to be, she hits one of those buttons and it calls you direct. Wear it everyday but not in the shower, take it off at night and let it charge over. Beats paying a monthly charge!!!

answer 2
Sari - There are no monthly fees. CareLine is an advanced home cordless phone system that connects to a phone jack like any conventional phone. The beauty of the cordless pendant is one button or voice activated access to any two critical phone numbers you program. Thanks!

Will it work with one of the ATT or Verizon Home Phone Connect devices?

The other monthly monitoring systems I've checked into do not work with those systems but require a regular landline.
