Personal Monitoring & Alarm Systems
Commonly known as Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS)
A PERS from INS LifeGuard is a TeleCare device that involves three components: a console unit, a small radio transmitter, and monitoring provided by our emergency response centre, which is staffed exclusively by experienced Nurses.
When emergency help is needed, the PERS user simply presses the transmitter’s “Help” button, sending a radio signal to the console. The console unit is activated immediately and automatically sends an alarm through to our emergency response centre. Within seconds one of our experienced Nurses receives the signal and can instantly identify the person and review their medical history. They’ll determine the nature of the emergency and take appropriate action right away.
Whether that means calling a friend, family member or neighbour to assist, or sending emergency services, rest assured knowing help is on the way. Following an event, we track the person for reassurance, even through the health system (if an ambulance was called) until they are back home secure.
LifeGuard service for a loved one
Caring for a family member or friend isn’t an easy thing these days. It can be hard to balance everyday commitments to work and family. You want to be there for your loved ones as much as possible, yet hour after hour of continuous care-giving can lead to exhaustion and may actually put your loved one at risk.
Family members often live far apart, making it more difficult to provide care, and the cost of paying someone to watch your loved one can really add up, even if it’s only for a short time.
Life is unpredictable, and a call for help could be needed at any time. Begin protecting your loved ones and experience the comfort and peace of mind that comes from having an INS LifeGuard service.

Thank you so very much for all your assistance to me in relation to my father. It is a nice feeling to know that if he requires help at any time he can call INS. Your help has been invaluable. I decided to use INS after ringing many companies and the main reason was your wonderful personalised approach.

I remain a committed advocate of INS. Peace of mind is ours because we can trust that INS will be there when we need it. Not many better gifts available for my wife, family and friends - give me INS.

INS LifeGuard has enabled our parents (88 & 90 years of age) to enjoy many more years in their own home than was ever expected. We as a family had peace of mind that in a medical emergency the necessary procedures were implemented far quicker than we could co ordinate.
—Graeme R, Toongabbie NSW
Your phone and wrist button made me feel safe and secure in my own home when through illness I felt very vulnerable. The fact that I knew I only had to press a button to have someone on the other end talk to me and arrange an ambulance allowed me to stay at home for as long as possible.
—Barbara A, Emu Plains NSW
We were extremely impressed by the service and very grateful for your care and support each time we contacted you. We will have no hesitation in recommending your service to other family members and friends.

Having the LifeGuard Unit brought a lot of comfort and security to both dad and his family. He knew he would always get a comforting voice in response to pressing his buzzer!
