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).

I have bought two of the LogicMark Guardian Alert 911 systems for my now 90 year-old Mom. The one I bought 5 1/2 years ago did not have a rechargeable battery and she had no issues with it for 5 years and two months. She splashed a small amount of coffee on the pendant and it no longer worked. I bought her a new Guardian Alert 911 - the same LogicMark model 30911 - in February of this year and the base lasted only 6 months. The base died, even though it has a power cord that was functioning (I checked it with the old base from the original one). The FCC is evaluating the use of wireless microphones and with everyone working from home and children learning remotely from home, the wireless microphone for this product no longer works. I would not buy a LogicMark Guardian Alert again unless it is the older 30911 model that does not have a rechargeable battery. I'm super unhappy to be out $149.95.
