Concerns You May Share
What if Mum has another fall?
Ann’s mother had a fall recently and couldn’t get herself up off the floor or reach the phone. Fortunately, her neighbour dropped by soon after and was able to help — but what if she hadn’t come by?
Ann knew her mother wanted to stay in her own home, but she also needed to know Mum could get help if she needed it. INS LifeGuard provided an alarm system with a small, discrete transmitter which Mum can wear as a pendant or on her wrist.
Now they can both have peace of mind.
Dad is wary of new technology
David’s father has a difficult time with technology, and has resisted any attempts to put an alarm system in his home. But David wanted to be sure Dad could summon assistance if he should ever need it. They decided on the LifeGuard SmartTracker.
All Dad has to do is put the SmartTracker on each day, and place it in the bedside charge dock at night. If he needs help, he just presses the big SOS button to get immediate assistance.
David can even call Dad via the speakerphone on the device to check on him at any time.
Mum wants to do things for herself
Tom’s mother has mobility issues that have made it difficult for her to do the things she loves — but she wanted to remain independent and not feel like a burden to her family.
Having a personal alarm from INS LifeGuard has given her the confidence to go about her favourite activities safe in the knowledge that she can speak to a nurse at any time of the day or night with the press of a button.
The nurse can send assistance, and if Mum wishes, notify her family members.
Dad worries about criminal activity
Kim’s dad has heard about burglaries in the area, and felt nervous about his safety in the evenings — especially when answering the door at night.
Kim called INS LifeGuard and got him a personal alarm, PIR beams (or motion detectors) to install around the property and a video doorbell which allowed him to see and speak to visitors without opening the door.
Dad feels better knowing an alarm can be triggered automatically if an intruder is detected, and he can press his HELP button for assistance at any time.
Why Choose INS?
There’s a big difference between INS LifeGuard and other providers. Our response centre is staffed by highly qualified and experienced nurses and other health care professionals, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We know of no other company who can make that claim, and we feel it’s an important distinction. Emergency personnel are engaged quickly if required, and our nurses can not only share personal details, but also medical information that could save a life.
How it works
In the event of an emergency, press the button on your transmitter, which can be worn on the wrist or as a pendant. (We can also supply a Fall Sensor that automatically triggers an alarm when a fall is detected.)
An alarm is sent to a nurse in our emergency response centre, who has access to your personal details and medical history. The nurse will call out to you over a two-way speaker on your emergency unit.* You need not be near the unit to be heard.
The nurse will assess the situation and send whatever help is required – whether that be contacting a family member, neighbour, friend, or emergency services.
If the nurse is unable to make voice contact, an ambulance will be dispatched to your location. No matter what the situation, rest assured help is on the way.
* Network coverage and voice quality are dependent on local environmental conditions and are not within the control of INS LifeGuard. Rest assured, even if we cannot speak to you over the alarm system, we have received the alarm and will send help.
Take your medical alarm with you wherever you go with our LifeGuard SmartMobile, SmartTracker or SmartWatch.
Just like your standard pendant or wrist transmitter, pressing the HELP button on these devices sends an alarm to our 24/7 emergency response centre. The built-in GPS locator ensures that in an emergency we’ll be able to locate you, speak to you, and send assistance, even if you are not able to respond to our nurses. Feel safe and assured wherever you go.
LifeGuard SmartMobile app is available to download for your existing, compatible Android phone. Conditions apply, call for more information.
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’d flipped backwards hitting my head. I couldn’t move. I remembered my INS LifeGuard pendant and pressed the button. I instantly heard a voice say ‘Hello Josephine, are you OK?’ Though I was outside he could hear me. He stayed online with me until the ambulance arrived. It was the best piece of technology I could have wished for. I know it works, and I feel safe.
– Josephine Zaslowski, West Pennant Hills
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
I used the INS emergency call system and within ten minutes of so, the ambulance was at my doorstep and I was treated on the spot and rushed to emergency. The INS nurse called me yesterday to ask how I was. The INS people were excellent, acted very promptly to my call and lived up to our expectation that this is a proper and effective service.
