The Basics

Product name: At-Home 3G Cellular 

Manufacturer / Distributor: LifeFone

Compilation: Sept. 2015. Updated Q4 2018.

This page contains our LifeFone | At-Home 3G Cellular review.



Analyst Summary: LifeFone At-Home 3G Cellular

DISCONTINUED. Replaced by this different LifeFone offering.

This looks like an outdated product, with the newer At-Home 3G Cellular (with Fall Detection) having superceded it. This product works only at home, and connects via cellular connection to the monitoring service. It does NOT allow fall detection, which is an option in the newer product.

Update Q4 2018

The company no longer offers this product.
