No land line? No worries! Direct Link’s Cellular Medical Alert System utilizes multiple cellular networks, so you can reach help 24/7 simply by pushing the pendant.

The Care Center is also notified of a power loss or low battery, and they will take the appropriate action to ensure your safety by alerting you directly or alerting an emergency contact.
Live life your way in the comfort of home! The Direct Link Fall Sensor is specifically designed to detect a fall and automatically dial the Central Monitoring Station to ensure you receive help promptly, and if no sudden movement is detected within 10 seconds, an “unconsciousness” alarm will be raised. Help can also be reached 24/7 by pushing the button.
Go where you want, when you want – all while staying connected!
