Description

Ask My Buddy Personal Alert ⨁ Network
All of us are alone sometimes and we can't always reach our phones or press a button to get assistance. Ask My Buddy enables Alexa to send a ‘check on me’ notification to your own Personal Alert Network, just by speaking.

If you have fallen, or need help, Ask My Buddy lets you immediately alert someone in your Personal Alert Network that you need them to check on you. You may alert just 1 contact or all of your friends or family with just one command. Simply say, 'Alexa, Ask My Buddy to alert YourContact' or 'Alexa, Ask My Buddy to alert everyone', and Ask My Buddy will immediately send an alert, notifying them to check on you right away. Alerts will be sent by text message / SMS, an email, and even a voice telephone call.

Ask My Buddy is not a substitute for 911, but rather an additional tool offering the security of knowing help is just a shout away.

If you need any help please send email to support@askmybuddy.net (add our email to your contact list so our answer does not end up in your email spam folder)
For hands on demonstrations and how-to videos, visit us at https://www.youtube.com/AskMyBuddy

There are 2 parts to setting up Ask My Buddy.
Set up your account at the AskMyBuddy.net website.
Enable and Link Accounts, here in the Alexa companion application.

First create your account
Go to www.AskMyBuddy.net
Click on Register menu item (if you are on a mobile device, tap on the 3 lines in the upper left corner).
Enter your information and press the Register button
Then on the login page, enter your email and password and press Log-In button.
Switch to the Contacts page to add your friends or family.

Second Enable Ask My Buddy:
Click on Enable Skill button on this page
This will open our Login page. Enter your email and password and press Log-In button

Once both steps are complete you are ready to use Ask My Buddy.
Talk to your Alexa device and say, 'Alexa, Ask My Buddy to Alert Bob' (instead of Bob use the first name of the contact you added). Alexa will alert that person and let you know that she did.

To alert all of your contacts at once say:
Alexa Ask My Buddy to Alert All
Alexa Ask My Buddy to Alert Everyone
Alexa Ask My Buddy to Alert Everybody
Alexa Ask My Buddy to Alert My Family
Alexa Ask My Buddy to Send Help

To alert only one contact say:
Alexa Ask My Buddy to Alert yourContactFirstName

Please ask your family, friends, a care giver, or a neighbor to be part of your network, and make a plan with them for what it means if you send them an alert. If you live in a community or building with private security, consider talking to them about being part of your network. Download our 'Guide for Contacts' at the bottom of the www.AskMyBuddy.net Settings page and share with those on the contact list.

Ask My Buddy is not a substitute for 911, but rather an additional tool offering the security of knowing help is just a shout away. 'Alexa, Ask My Buddy to Send Help'
