The Simplest Way to Call for Help.

Tapping the Alert button notifies three emergency contacts, texts them your location, and dials them into a conference call with you.

EVERY SECOND COUNTS

Speed your access to care with a seamless way to alert your people right away in times of distress. Get help faster and receive treatment quickly.


A simple tap on the Alert button automatically sends a text message to inform all three contacts of your exact location. If Alert Voice is enabled, everyone is simultaneously dialed into a dedicated, private conference line so they can easily troubleshoot the situation.


“Because I was able to receive treatment so quickly, my hospital stay was short and my recovery has been much faster.”

easy! tap the button, or shake the phone

We designed Alert with our grandmas in mind, it’s made for people of all ages: easy to use and beautiful -- you’re gonna love it.

- Keep your carrier and phone -- don’t change a thing, just download the Alert app for FREE.

- Simply shake your phone, or tap the Alert button to notify the selected contacts via text message and start a conference call.

- List up to three contacts from your support network. People usually list family, friends, or professionals such as doctors, school nurses or diabetes educator.

- Alert makes sure not to go off by mistake: a shake of the phone will not start it off unless the app is currently active on the screen. Launching the app and tapping the button starts a 5-to-1 countdown, enough buffer time to stop it.




CONFERENCE-IN YOUR EMERGENCY CONTACTS

With Alert Voice enabled, when you tap the Alert Button, up to three contacts listed from your support group will receive a call from you and be dialed into a dedicated, private conference line.

Alert Voice conference calls are only available for Premium users.
Premium users can even speak to their support group when traveling, without breaking the bank, since Alert uses the data connection -- not the voice plan -- for the conference calls.

Alert nearby helpers
Diabetes-related situation? It's easy to alert nearby diabetes helpers from inside the Alert app. With a tap of a button, an ASAP ALERT message will be sent to nearby users of the Diabetes Helpers app.

Data-friendly Alert service.

No cellphone coverage? No problem! Our Alert service is still available for text messaging and calls via Wifi.

SEND an alert, straight from your wrist.

Alerts can be initiated from the Watch face, or suggested in case of out-of-range blood glucose results captured from the Apple Watch.
Having the Alert for Apple Watch increases accessibility and allows disoriented or immobile users to quickly send alerts straight from their wrist without relying on their phone, which speeds up response time and care.

Synced with apple's healthkit

With real-time access to blood glucose reading captured by any other iPhone app and Apple's HealthKit, Alert notifies the user whenever out-of-range results are communicated.

A tap on the push notification initiates an Alert that the user can easily stop at anytime, during the 5-to-1 countdown.


Alert is NOT intended to replace self-monitoring or the use of any device for tracking glucose readings but rather facilitate communication between users and key people from their immediate support network.

When premium means unlimited conference calling

Alert and its text messaging features are provided at no cost to the user. Unlimited Alert Voice calls are offered to premium users only. After using up three free calls, Alert users can upgrade by choosing between a monthly or annually subscription to enjoy unlimited conference calling, for only 33 cents per day ($9.99 per month or $99.99 per year).


We offer discounts for volume licensing to patients organizations and employers so they can provide their members and employees with Alert as well as custom services such as access to a professional 24/7 help line.
