Our Client’s Comments

“I feel safer at work now”

Matthew from Peninsula Health is a senior clinician that works out in the community.  He often feels vulnerable going into patients home alone and feels the Duress alarm gives him the peace of mind that if an incident did occur he’s not alone and can get help quickly. 

The benefit of the Duress alarm over the mobile phone is that it is quick and easy, no unlocking your phone or finding your contacts – it’s just the press of one button.

“I feel the MePACS alarm gives me peace of mind and I feel safer at work, knowing I can go to work confident that I can come home safe to my family.” Said Mat.

Our Client’s Comments

“Reliable. Professional. Effective – would definitely recommend MePACS to others working out in the community

We use MePACS for staff working in the community with young offenders. We also compared various companies and MePACS came out well on top. The initial contact with the MePACS team was clear and efficient and the delivery of the alarms was fast.

We have found the monitoring service provided by MePACS to be diligent and professional. Our team all agrees that the MePACS system is more responsive and consistent than the previous alarm system we had in place. And are also  pleased to able to purchase other resources with the considerable saving made by choosing with MePACS .

We cannot fault the MePACS alarm service and are very happy to recommend the service to others working out in the community.
