Guardian Lingo Safety Pendant $499

The Guardian Lingo is Australia’s first 4G Safety Pendant that audibly announces what’s happening in the language of your choice. Short, clearly stated voice prompts assure the Pendant User that the Lingo is doing its job.

Whether you want family monitoring or professional monitoring, your Guardian Lingo Personal Medical Alarm is custom programmed for you so it’s ready to use when you receive it.

Geo-fencing available to help prevent wandering.

CALLS AND MESSAGES UP TO 5 EMERGENCY CONTACTS

When help is needed, press and hold the SOS button for 2 seconds until it vibrates. The Lingo will sequentially call your contacts so you can tell them what help you need. The first contact to answer and press 1 on their phone keypad is sent a link showing your location on Google Maps. If your emergency contact does not answer or if voicemail responds, the Lingo hangs up and calls the next number.

If the button was pressed by accident, or to cancel the alarm, the voice prompt will announce that the user simply needs to press the SOS button again.

Once answered the user can speak with their contact directly – just as with a mobile phone.

Unique to the Guardian Lingo is that the SMS text messages can be sent one at a time until one of the contacts responds, or the messages can be sent to everyone at the same time before the calls are made. The distinctive advantage with the former option is that contacts aren’t left wondering what’s going on if they get the text without the call.

GPS TRACKING

There are 3 ways in which the Lingo provides its location:

  1. Call the number of the pendant and hang up after 1 ring. A reply text will provide a link to Google Maps of the Pendant User’s location.
  2. Send a text code to the number of the pendant. A reply text will provide a link to Google Maps.
    • Then start a new paragraph with the next line: Phone APP – A wealth of information.
  3. Optional Tracking Platform – Realtime, live tracking; advanced geo-fence options (eg., custom-shaped boundaries); history and much more. This is a premium GPS platform with all the bells and whistles. Personalised instruction is also available on a computer, tablet or phone APP.

As with all GPS devices they require a straight line view to the satellites, ideally outdoors. If the user is inside a large building or shopping centre then the last known location will likely be shown.

FALL DETECTION

Easily switched on or off, there are 3 sensitivity settings.

If the device senses what may have been a fall, a call is made to emergency contacts, similar to the SOS button being pressed. The difference being that the voice prompt identifies the alarm as a fall alert.

SPEED DIAL UP TO 5 CONTACTS

The Lingo gives the user the option to speed dial up to 5 phone numbers. After pressing the SOS button, each press of the side button scrolls through the contacts.

To confirm the number of clicks of the side button, the Lingo announces which contact is being called.

WIFI TRACKING

Unlike GPS tracking that works best when there is an unobstructed view of the sky, WiFi tracking provides accurate location indoors. The Pendant User must have a mobile phone or computer and works in conjunction with the purchase of a tracking platform. This is a highly specialised, advanced function.

LOW BATTERY ALERT

When the battery percentage remaining drops to 20% and again at 10% of charge remaining, a voice prompt warns the user that the battery is low.

Pressing the side button also audibly warns the user when the remaining charge is 10% or less.

AVOIDING UNWANTED INCOMING CALLS

When the Lingo’s phone number is called it answers automatically. If you prefer, the Lingo can be programmed to either:

  1. Allow anyone who knows the phone number to call and speak to the user.
  2. Allow only the emergency contacts to call and speak to the user. This blocks unwanted scam callers.

MAGNETIC CHARGING

The charging cable has a distinctive magnet attachment on the end. When connected, a voice prompt announces that the Lingo is charging. If the Lingo was off before connecting the cord, the unit will automatically turn on (announced by a voice prompt) and then announce that the battery is charging.

2-WAY VOICE COMMUNICATION

Once answered the user can speak with their contact directly – just as with a mobile phone. Volume is increased or decreased by positioning the Lingo closer to or further from the user’s ear.
