CMR My Lifeline Panic button

The New CMRLifeLine button is a small, water-resistant (IP65), wearable panic button that can be used by CMR members to contact and speak to the CMR Call Centre for any medical emergency anywhere where cellular signal is available.

It’s reliable, easy to use and robust, and has only one button to send an emergency signal to CMR or to activate the unit.

This award winning South African product can be worn on a lanyard, as a watch (strap included), or on a keyring. It is ICASA approved, and it works independently of any other device. It’s ideal for people who live alone, or spend time outdoors.

The purchase price is R2500 incl VAT, and a month network provider fee of R55 incl VAT is added to the CMR member’s monthly fees. There is no ongoing contract.

When the button on the unit is pressed and held for a few seconds, a signal will be received by CMR’s 24/7 Call Centre, and the button will confirm by a voice that a signal has been sent. The CMR Emergency Dispatcher can then find all the member’s details on CMR’s database, and the GPS coordinates of the unit are also sent in case the button-holder is not at home. The CMR Dispatcher will then first call the member via the button to establish the nature of the emergency, and CMR paramedics will be dispatched if an emergency is confirmed by the member concerned. Whenever the Emergency button is activated, an SMS is also automatically sent by the unit to the selected emergency or family contacts. The battery needs charging every day and the unit carries a one-year Manufacturer’s Warranty.
