LogicMark, Guardian Alert: Review
Product name: Guardian Alert
Manufacturer / Distributor: LogicMark
Compilation: Q4 2015. Updated Q4 2018.
This page contains our LogicMark Guardian Alert review.
Analyst Summary: LogicMark Guardian Alert
Guardian Alert is a non-monitored emergency alert pendant. When you press the emergency pendant button, the system calls 911 directly.
Conceptually this is similar to the Freedom Alert made by the same company (LogicMark, a wholesaler). However, while the Freedom Alert lets you call friends and family and only call 911 if noone picks up, this product just calls 911 directly, and does not call friends and family.You can't buy this directly from the manufacturer (LogicMark) and they recommended that we buy it through a distributor called Health Connection. We found it available on Amazon for a lower price and that is the link we use in the heading section.
This product shares with Freedom Alert the features of having a voice-through-pendant communication capability, being "water resistant", and needing to be within 600 feet of the base station to work. So it is an at-home system.
This product has no monthly fees, and is less expensive than the Freedom Alert ($120-$140 on 11/5/15).
