Personal emergency response systems or PERS devices help provide senior citizens and lone workers protection in the event of an emergency. There are countless numbers of PERS devices out on the market today.
Traditional PERS are generally used only inside the home. The system requires a base station that is connected to a landline or cell network, but doesn’t allow the user to venture far outside of the home. mPERS provide the user mobility. mPERS use cell network coverage, GPS and WiFi to provide access to locate the user, and send emergency to them. Each one works a little different in locating the user, which is discussed a little later.
