Personal Medical Alarms Disclaimer

Legal Disclaimer

 PRODUCT PERFORMANCE DISCLAIMER
The Alarm Pendant (tracker) is reliant on the cellular phone service provider’s GSM network coverage to make and receive phone calls, and to send SMS messages to the nominated mobiles and to provide GPS positioning. These services may vary between service providers and locations where usage may occur.

The User is responsible for the reoccurring credit cost of the SIM Card.

The Alarm Pendant ( has ‘serious fall detection’; however, the activation depends on the angle and velocity the tracker hits the ground. Therefore, if the user slides down a wall or falls not allowing the Medical Alert Alarm Pendant ( from a distance of at least 1 meter to have contact with the ground, the Alarm Pendant ( may not activate. In this case, if the user does not hear a beep after ten (10) seconds, they have the option to press the SOS button for assistance.

Mercari Ltd does not accept responsibility for any perceived failure due to (but not limited to) incorrect programming, battery maintenance, GSM and GPRS coverage or any such perceived failure by the selected network carrier in providing and maintaining suitable connectivity to the GSM/GPRS network. The product supplier accepts no responsibility for any failure that is due to (but not limited to) incorrect tracker programming, dismantling the tracker or misuse or water ingress or other forms of damage.

It is advisable that the user places the Alarm Pendant in the charging docking station each evening beside the bed in case it is needed in an emergency

Cellular Coverage

The Alarm Pendant depends on the coverage of the 3G GSM (WCDMA). Mercari Ltd will not be held responsible if the User is not in a mobile coverage area which prevents the 3G GSM call from proceeding to the nominated mobiles. Verification that the Alarm Pendant is in a 3G coverage can be verified by the Green LED light flashing rapidly in 3 second intervals. It is the responsibility of the User or family to ensure the Alarm Pendant is in cellular coverage. It is the responsibility of the User or family to ensure the alarm is in 3G cellular coverage and has a working, correct frequency appropriate to the alarm SIM card. It must be understood that the 3G coverage may be interfered with in the case of being in a lift, underground car park, between high rise buildings, tunnels, dense forrest or road cuttings.

Limitations of GPS location.

The Alarm Pendant is dependent and limited to the common constraints of all GPS system satellites. The Alarm Pendant uses the GPS technology using Google Maps to fix its location which is accurate within 2-3 meters (Hot fix only. Cold fix is within 50 meters). The Alarm Pendant requires the line of sight to the satellites. A fix to these satellites must be done on first receiving the Alarm Pendant and tested for its accuracy. The Blue LED light on the side of the Alarm Pendant will verify its fix to the satellites by flashing in 3 second intervals. In the event that the Alarm Pendant cannot get a fixed co-ordinates it will provide its last known position in a “Help” SMS. The Alarm Pendant will check for an updated GPS location when it detects movement. The GPS location can be verified by sending a “loc” SMS to the Alarm Pendant.
