Our range of industry leading digital personal alarms
What options do I have for a digital personal alarms?
Digital alarms fall into two main categories:
1. In-home digital alarms that operate via the home internet or digital telephone line
2. Fully mobile alarms that operate using mobile phone capabilities provided by an in-built SIM card
SureSafe offers both types of 'future-proof' digital alarms, allowing you to choose the alarm that suits your needs and lifestyle the best.
In-home Digital Alarms:
The SureSafe Guardian is the complete in-home digital personal alarm. It works using the internet in your home, either plugged directly into the router or connected to the Wi-Fi. The alarm user wears a button either on their neck or wrist, and if they get into any trouble they can press the button to call for help. The alarm will call up to 3 telephone numbers of family and friends, and when the call is connected you can talk to your loved one via the base unit. The SureSafe Guardian does not need a landline, has no ongoing fees with the standard version, and comes with a free 'family & friends' app.
You also have the option to upgrade to the SureSafe Guardian Plus alarm for a small monthly fee. The 'Plus' plan offers a host of additional features and benefits to help keep you or your loved one safe. This includes the ability to call up to 5 nominated contacts (not 3), 'I'm OK checks' to check-in with the alarm user each day, various activity alerts (including alerts for unusual night-time activity, no activity, and if your loved one is not out of bed by their normal time), medication reminders, high and low temperature alerts and a whole lot more.

Fully Mobile Alarms:
Mobile digital personal alarms harness the power of mobile phone technology to provide you with a personal alarm that can be taken anywhere with you. This could be at home, in the garden or 'out and about'. Whether you are at home watching TV, in the garden enjoying some warm weather or gardening, or taking a walk down a country path, your fully mobile digital personal alarm will keep you safe.
SureSafe has been the leaders in mobile alarms since 2015. We have tens of thousands of satisfied mobile alarm customers across the UK and worldwide, far more than any other provider. As a result, we are the experts in this area so you can feel confident choosing SureSafe for your mobile alarm needs.
In addition to being fully mobile, our mobile digital alarms also include the ability to talk through the pendant to either your nominated contact or our 24/7 response centre. You don't need to be near a base unit to be able to let people know what is happening, and have peace of mind that help is on the way.
They also come with automatic fall detection. This means that your alarm can detect heavy falls and call for help without you needing to push the button. This can be lifesaving if you have lost consciousness following a heavy fall, stroke, heart attack or epileptic seizure.

This includes options for daily 'I'm OK' welfare checks, activity monitoring (including alerts if the alarm user is not out of bed by a certain time), alerts for no-activity, home temperature checks, medication reminders, unusual night-time activity, and a whole host of more features.

Frequently Asked Questions
Have a question? Take a look at some of the common questions that people have before buying a SureSafe alarm:
Landline-based alarms work using a base unit that is plugged into the telephone landline at home. The elderly person alarm works within a certain radius of the base unit, so they can only be used in the home and garden. Mobile personal alarms can be used anywhere that there is mobile phone signal. This means that they can be used at home, in the garden, and also when ‘out and about’.
