Some customer reviews of Yale Distress Alarm

Most helpful reviews

Brian, Haverhill

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Quick set up. well made and performs exactly as stated. A really good alternative to the other pay monthly options available. Would be first class if only Yale can sort out the panic button on the neck fob.
Bad points:
Can false trigger from the pendant if knocked. Had to return first unit for this reason.
Fob needs a redesign with the panic button more recessed to prevent false triggers and the neck chord fitted with a means of adjusting its length.
My aged mother is only short and when hanging round her neck it constantly hits her kitchen worktops.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
easy to install enter your contact numbers and that's it beats paying for yearly contract and cuts down on money if your on a low income
this is the second one i have purchased first for my brother who has had a stroke
second one for a person i look after who as broke his leg and i have to leave in the house while i go out if anything happens he just presses the button on the pendant around his neck and it rings my mobile with a message that he needs assistance
Bad points:

Michael, Willenhall

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
It is easy to set up and program the numbers in, however you must make sure that you carefully put the correct numbers in because there is no way to check, eg no read out.
Bad points:
We had a lot of false alarms which we couldn't understand why, especially at 3 in the morning but after a while it settled down although we still get the occasional one. Once the alarm goes off you can speak to the person via the base unit however if this is down stairs it has no effect if the person is up stairs. Over all it is good but the false alarms are worrying as you must treat every alarm as important.
