Top Customer Reviews
As a lifelong allergy and asthma sufferer who's had a few close calls, I had considered purchasing a medical alert button before but I found every other service far too expensive (and just a little bit uncool... hey I'm only 29). Then I found the 5Star Responder. 5Star is so much more than your typical medial alert button. It's really like a personal emergency concierge or an On*Star for people.
5Star isn't just for medical emergencies. You can call 5Star for any urgent or potentially urgent situation. You could be afraid to walk to your car alone at night, run low on gas and need directions to the nearest station, or hear strange noises in your home. At the push of a button a friendly 5Star agent will come on the line and offer assistance. Thanks to the unit's built in GPS the agent on the line will know exactly where you are and where to send help if you need it.
The responder device retails for under $50 and the monthly service fee (after a one time activation charge) is just $14.99 with no contract and it works anywhere on the Verizon network. This means that unlike a traditional medical alert button that's fixed to your home, the 5Star responder goes with you and is ready to provide assistance anywhere you happen to be. The device is small and weighs just 1.8 ounces. I keep mine clipped to my belt and I hardly notice I'm wearing it. When traditional medical alert companies charge $30-45 dollars a month for a service you can't take with you, 5Star is definitely a bargain. As an added bonus, 5Star even offers a LiveNurse service that a 5Star agent can conference in for you to answer any of your health or medical questions.Read more ›
My mother in law is in her 50s, drives an older car, and often works late doing photography. She's very independent, but my wife and I worry about her. She travels all around, often to urban locations, to take photos. We're particularly worried about her walking to her car, or walking by herself in the city.
I bought her one of these. She has a cell, but there's no way she's going to get to it in an emergency with the camera and bag and all the other stuff she often carries. With this thing, she can clip it to her bag, and call for help with one button press. Pretty cool.
So, I also bought one for my wife's grandmother. She's 80, and lives alone (also independent). She had a scary incident a couple of months ago when she was sick with the flu, and couldn't get to the phone. A neighbor found her. This thing would have helped.
My mother in law is very happy with the gift. She called me later to tell me how much she liked it, and how much safer it makes her feel.
Very glad I bought. For $50 a piece, it's cheap enough to try. The monthly is $15 for 1, $9 for each additional. $25/month isn't much to know they're safe. I'm going to try this out for a few months.
If you lose your connection, the red light tells you so and you just turn it off and back on, like your cell phone, as long as you're in Verizon's massive US service area. If your home has a weak Verizon signal (like mine does) get a cell extender (Amazon and Verizon have them). They cost about $200 and will give you reception throughout your house (for you cell phones, too).
With the locator function, you can authorize anyone you want to be able to go on their website and locate EXACTLY where you are, at any time, either using a map or satellite image. Basic GPS functionality and it works easily.
Other reviewers have posted some negative reviews, which I will address:
- Ours holds a charge. Never had a problem. Remember; it's like a cell phone you leave on all day. The battery will last as long as your cell phone battery does. They encourage you to charge it by your bed every night, although it can go days on a single charge. It remains functional while it is charging. More than three years now and it still holds the charge.
- If you think a $35 one-time fee is too much, you probably don't own a cell phone. I doubt that there are any free services like this.Read more ›
