Connect America, Medical Alarm Company specializes in Personal Emergency Response Services (PERS). Connect America is a nationwide company, with its corporate headquarters located outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Connect America’s core business is providing personal emergency monitoring and home alarm services nationwide to older adults with medical ailments or conditions, who wish to live at home.
The interactive two-way wireless technology allows seniors to remain living independently in their own home rather than moving into an assisted living community or moving in with family members. The company’s primary service may also be referred to as a medical alarm system. The medical alarm system is a multi-facet emergency system consisting of hardware or short-ranged wireless devices and a 24/7 UL accredited emergency monitoring center. An easy accessible waterproof button is worn as a necklace or wristband, which communicates with a two-way speaker box base unit. The base unit is connected through a traditional phone line (phone jack), or to a modem and Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP), which communicates directly to a certified emergency operator who monitors calls 24 hours a day.
