This page contains our LifeFone At-Home Landline, At-Home Cellular review.
Analyst Summary: LifeFone At-Home Landline, At-Home Cellular
The LifeFone At-Home system comes in two versions: the "Landline" version and the "Cellular" version.
These are both conventional, traditional, medical alert systems that work only at and around your home. These systems do have optional fall-detection capability. Voice communication is through the base unit.
The difference between the two relates to whether communication from the base station to the responder is via your home landline ("Landline Version"), or via a cellular connection built in to the base station ("Cellular Version").
