GSM Module

What is it?

The GSM module is specifically designed to connect to a Lifeline home unit allowing calls to be raised using the GSM mobile phone network. Because the GSM module is supplied SIM card free the service provider can use the network of their choice.

Who is it for?

It is ideal for:

  • Elderly, infirm or disabled people
  • Individuals who have been discharged from hospital and require additional support and assistance at home
  • People subject to domestic violence, racial harassment, repeat victimisation and distraction burglary
  • Those living in high crime areas
  • People of any age living alone
  • Monitoring unoccupied buildings

How does it work?

When a call is initiated the Lifeline home unit will transmit the call to the designated 24 hour monitoring centre via the mobile phone network. Once the call is accepted at the monitoring centre, two way speech is established between the operator and the caller.

It is also supplied with a battery backup to provide even greater reassurance in the event of power failure.
