You know that famous old commercial that gave us the tagline, I’ve fallen down and I can’t get up!. But AFAIK, the actual call could be answered by any local emergency service point, whether a private ambulance company, the local fire company, and in some cases maybe even the police. In fact, in L.A. the fire and EMT services have been completely merged, so if you call for an EMT you might end up getting a couple of firefighters, in full firefighting gear. Well, it makes sense, I suppose.
But my question is, is it possible for the occupant not to have to keep his door unlocked? How will they get in if they don’t other than by breaking the door down? It seems like a huge problem with the product. Suppose the occupants have pets that need to stay inside? They certainly don’t want their doors broken. There might be younger or healthier people also living in the house, but then one doesn’t need the alert system so much anyhow, right?
I don’t know what made me start wondering about this. But I do know that I like to keep my front door locked when I’m home.
