Guardian Alert 911
No Monitoring Fees, Service Charges or Contracts ever!
Talk Directly through your pendant to a 911 emergency operator at the push of a button.
The Guardian Alert 911 system is a set - a base station which plugs into the phone jack - and a pendant which is worn by the user.
The system can operate anywhere in and around the home - with the base station plugged into a phone jack in the central part of the home.
The Pendant runs up to a year on a AAA alkaline battery (included). The pendant is splash resistant so it can even be taken into the shower. The Test Button on the bottom of the unit gives an audible confirmation of battery condition. Hold the Test Button in an extra few seconds - and you can confirm that the full system is working.

VoIP Systems: Special Note If Your Phone System is VoIP: Voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a telephone service that sends your call over the Internet instead of through the regular telephone system. This may seem minor, but the differences with VoIP are great when it comes to 911 service.
Traditional phone lines physically connect a specific location to the phone company - so when you call 911 the phone company can report to the 911 center exactly where you are located. When 911 services are offered by a VoIP provider the VoIP system will report your registered address to the 911 center. Due to the nature of the internet, the VoIP provider does not know the physical location the phone service is being provided to - only the registered address which is typically the billing address. As a result, with VoIP it is sometimes possible for a 911 center to dispatch help to the wrong address, particularly if you have moved without updating the provider.
Because of this, in all cases where VoIP is used we recommend calling the VoIP provider to ensure that both 911 service is available to you, and that your current physical address is on file with the provider so that help will be dispatched to the correct location.
If you are unsure if your phone system uses VoIP, or to find if it is capable of calling 911, please contact your telephone service provider.
Installing Guardian 911 on VoIP Systems: Many VoIP services, such as Vonage, use a special internet adapter. This adapter typically has a phone jack on it into which a regular phone is connected. The Guardian 911 will connect to the adapters jack in place of the regular phone jack in your house.
Some VoIP systems, such as Verizon's FIOS, are seamlessly integrated into regular phone jacks, completely replacing traditional phone service. This allows you to connect the Guardian Alert 911 to your existing phone jack as described in this manual, and no special connections will be required.
Other VoIP systems use special computer software/headsets, or sometimes a special phone which connects directly to the USB port of a computer. Unfortunately, Guardian Alert 911 will not work with software or USB systems unless a provision for connecting a regular phone is also provided.
In general, if your VoIP system can utilize a regular phone then the Guardian Alert 911 will work just fine. However, if you have both a working traditional phone line AND a VoIP phone system we recommend connecting the Guardian Alert 911 system to the traditional phone system
