How to use the Mobile Alarm?
The Mobile alarm should be used whenever you are not at home. Whether you are visiting family or friends, shopping for groceries, or just walking the dog, you should take the mobile alarm with you. The alarm comes with both a lanyard or clip attachment, so you can wear it around your neck, on your belt, or keep it your pocket (as long as it’s secure).
If you find yourself in need of help, simply give the button on the alarm a short, sharp press, and a MePACS operator will respond within 2 minutes and talk to you through the device.
When you return home, place the Mobile Alarm in the charging unit and wear your Home Alarm Pendant instead.
Charging the Mobile Alarm
You should charge the mobile alarm every night, or when you are not using it. The battery will last at least 24 hours. If the battery power is low the alarm will play an alert to let you know.
To charge the alarm simply place it in the charging unit provided. Make sure the charger is connected to the power. A red light on the charger will indicate that the charger is on.
Once you place the alarm in the charger, a solid green light on the alarm will indicate that the device is charging.
When the green light starts to flash the alarm is fully charged.
The MePACS Mobile Alarm is connected to the 4G mobile phone network, which means you can use the alarm anywhere in Australia where there’s good mobile phone coverage. In areas where there is no mobile reception, like underground car parks, mountainous and rural areas, the alarm will not be able to connect to MePACS.
When the alarm doesn’t have reception or can’t find a signal, an orange light on the alarm will flash, and it will play and intermittent beep sound. The alarm will automatically reconnect as soon as it finds a signal again.
Please note that when there’s no reception you will not be able to use the alarm to raise an emergency alert.
