Features and Functionality

Medical Guardian offers plans with either in-home protection only or in-home and on-the-go protection. Some of their in-home plans’ most worth-mentioning features are:

24/7 monitoring

All of the company’s monitoring centers are based within the US and the highly vetted and trained operators are available 24/7 for any emergencies.

Crystal clear 2-way communication

All medical guardian devices enable clear 2-way communication via the built-in speaker. You can also adjust the volume of the speaker according to your preferences and get connected to an emergency respondent with the single click of a button.

Power outage protection

All devices come with a substantial amount of back up battery power (can vary depending on the subscription) which allows you to be protected even when the power is out.

Landline-free protection

Even if you don’t have a landline, you can get all the medical emergency features using a cellular subscription. The company uses the AT&T service to offer you wireless support 24/7.

Activity sensors

The Family Guardian package also includes activity sensors which allow family, friends, and other caregivers to stay updated throughout the day with your different levels of activity.

Family Guardian application

The Family Guardian application can be downloaded for desktops/laptops, smartphones, and tablets. It can act as a self-monitored or professionally monitored service.

On-the-go protection is offered with the Mobile Guardian and Active Guardian plans. Here are some of the features that come in these packages in addition to the ones mentioned above:

GPS location tracking

The mobile guardian device makes use of your mobile’s GPS to pinpoint your location and sends help right where you are.

Dependable cellular connectivity

The company makes use of AT&T’s reliable cellular service to offer you wireless, 24/7 access to all the company’s monitoring centers.

Ease of Use

The devices need to be charged prior to use and the charging time normally ranges between three to four hours. For activation, you will have to call at the company’s toll-free number and share a few details like name, address and phone number. Within a few moments, your account should get activated. Getting help is as easy as pressing a button and the devices are very sleek and stylish.
