So this means if someone has an accident ie a fall and can't get up they press the pendant which is worn around the neck and it will automatically ring the numbers stored in the phone. If the phone gets a busy tone or answerphone it will ring the next number and then the next until someone answers it. If they can't talk then a you will hear a recorded message saying that this person needs help.
I think it's £69.99 well spent.
