Peace of mind, dignity and independence, where-ever you are.
We understand the value of independence. Our new mobile emergency button gives you your freedom, while offering friends and family the reassurance you can contact them? No matter what?
Small and unobtrusive, the SOS button uses mobile technology, allowing it to work anywhere there is a mobile signal. The neck or wrist worn SOS button automatically calls three landline or mobile numbers set by you, one after another until answered, then allows you to talk through the pendant.
Once connected, you can alert your friend or family member to your situation. They can take immediate action, whether it be to call the emergency services or a neighbour, or to arrange help with daily chores.
The button is powered by a USB rechargeable lithium battery, offering 30 minutes talk time and up to 6 months standby. You can be sure of an early warning when the battery is low with an indicator on the button and optional SMS alert. With SMS setup, the numbers and functions can be altered remotely to ensure the device is always up to date.

What is the Friends & Family SOS Pendant?
The Friends & Family SOS Pendant is a small and unobtrusive alarm that’s automatically calls three landlines or mobile numbers when you press the button. It calls each number one after another until answered, then allows you to talk through the pendant.
How is it set up?
It’s set up by a partnered supplier, so it works straight out of the box when its delivered. When you buy your pendant, you are sent a welcome letter with instructions on how to submit your Emergency Contact numbers. Once they receive your emergency contact numbers, they program your pendant and run a series of test calls to ensure its working correctly. After the successful test, your pendant is sent out to you using a tracked Royal Mail service.
Are there any ongoing costs?
Your pendant is provided with a Friends and Family SIM Card and three months usage, free of charge. The Friends & Family SIM Card works with multiple networks across Europe, to ensure you always have reception. Towards the end of the free period, you will be contacted by letter to discuss if you would like to continue using the Friends & Family SIM Card – this typically costs £10 per month.
