The Notifi 911+ mobile medical alert system pendant by Logicmark is a popular option available for immediate purchase inside local Walmart stores. This 24/7 mobile emergency alert system lets seniors talk directly to a 911 emergency operator at the push of a large, red button. Because it works with built-in cellular network coverage, the Notifi 911+ provides help any time, anywhere, without the need for a landline or cell phone. The small, lightweight pendant can be worn around the neck with the included lanyard, clipped onto a belt or stowed in a pocket or purse.
In addition to the peace of mind it provides, seniors appreciate that the Notifi 911+ pendant is a one-time purchase with no additional service contract or monthly fees. The included lithium polymer battery also lasts for an estimated 6 months of standby time before the pendant needs to be recharged. Currently retailing for $137.05, the Notifi 911+ mobile medical alert system pendant can be a reliable choice for older adults living alone.
