The EMC Security monitoring center received an alarm from the home of an EMC Medical Alert customer in Snellville, Georgia at 9:10am on Sunday, April 14, 2013. The customer was home alone when she fell on the hard tile floor in her bathroom. She fell on her hip and left hand leaving her in terrible pain and unable to get back up on her own strength. She immediately pressed the button on her EMC Medical Alert two-way communication pendant that she constantly wears. The was then connected to the monitoring center operator. Speaking directly through the pendant, the customer explained to the operator that she fell and was injured. The operator immediately dispatched emergency medical services to the customers home. EMC Security’s quick response led to the ambulance arriving at the home within 8 minutes after the customer initially pressed the button on her two-way medical alert pendant. While remaining on the phone with the customer the entire time, the customer was able to tell the operator to notify EMS that they could access the home through her unlocked back door. The operator also contacted the customer’s daughter who was then able to rush to her mother’s home.
This is a very fortunate situation in which the customer had the EMC Medical Alert pendant and was able to call for immediate help. We shudder to think at what might have occurred had she not had the two-way EMC Medical Alarm pendant as she lay on the floor in pain and unable to get herself back up. Without the fast response of EMC Security, she may have lay on the floor, alone and in pain for ours, or until someone found her days later. Please do not let this happen to you or a loved one. If you know someone who would benefit from having the EMC Medical Alert pendant, please contact EMC Security at 770-963-0305 to speak with a Medical Alert product specialist immediately. Give you and your loved one peace of mind knowing that help is at the press of a button.

Thankfully, no one was at home at the time, but the customer could have lost their most prized possessions such as family pictures and heirlooms.

Advances in security industry technology and the internet have opened up a world of new possibilities for consumers. The security industry seized upon the available technology to build value among their customers. The advent of the security system app quickly grew to include the control of thermostats, lights, and locks. Customers can now control the electronics in their home from anywhere they have an internet connection.
EMC Security Sales Manager, Michael Morton says, “the early adopters of this technology were ‘techies’, but now we’re seeing customers from all walks of life electing to add these services to their home.” Morton credits the low cost of the service and the convenience of remote system controls with the rapid growth in the “connected” services demand. EMC Security has developed our exclusive Secure Path Technology™ that allows these types of connected services.
Research shows that not only do consumers find the technology convenient but they’re also learning that the thermostat controls can significantly reduce power consumption. By allowing the security system to set the thermostat back four degrees automatically when the security system is armed, the average consumer can save $180 per year in “wasted power,” according to Energy Star.
EMC Security will be showcasing this new technology at the North Atlanta Home Show at the Gwinnett Center on February 10th, 11th and 12th. Please visit us at the show for live demonstrations of these services.
