Bay Alarm In-Home Alerts: Review
Product name: In-Home Medical Alert, In-Home Cellular Alert

This page contains our Bay Alarm Medical In-Home Medical Alert, In-Home Cellular Alert review.
Analyst Summary: Bay Alarm Medical In-Home Medical Alert, In-Home Cellular Alert
These two products are conceptually similar, providing medical alert systems at home only. One works with a conventional landline and one works with a cellular connection to the monitoring service.
Both products give you the choice of a conventional pendant or a special "fall alert" pendant, which can auto detect falls.
In all cases, communication with the monitoring service is via the base station.
We acquired the cellular version. When it came the package insert identified it as the MXD3G. This appears to be the same unit as is sold by RescueAlert. And the picture of the rescue Alert looks just like the system we received. The sticker on the bottom suggests the unit is made bty Mytrex. Our guess is that this third party supplies systems to both companies.
