From humble beginnings, Live Life Alarms is now the largest provider of mobile personal alarms in Australia.
The rapidly growing business started out in a spare room in Morisset in 2015.
Its success over the past five years led to the employment of 32 staff and saw the opening of a new sales and fulfillment office in Toronto earlier this month.
The event, which was attended by State Member for Lake Macquarie Greg Piper, also marked the official launch of a new flagship product – the 4GX Live Life Alarm.
The Live Life Alarms mission is simple: to help others live the life they deserve by providing them with the peace of mind that
they will be able to get help in an emergency.
The Live Life Alarm works on the Telstra network with in-built GPS tracking so customers can maintain their independence and feel safe, both in and outside their home.
The device allows the wearer to contact up to six family members (including 000) in the event of a fall or emergency.
“We have had unbelievable success with our 3G model,” Live Life Alarms Director, Phil Mathieson, said.
“And we’ve spent the past two years designing and building our new 4GX alarm.
“We could not be happier with the result.”
Mr Mathieson said one of the biggest challenges had been to keep the device simple to use for customers.
“But, with automatic fall detection, in-built GPS, a smart talking voice guide, long battery life and connection to the best mobile network available, this new product is already proving to be a winner,” he said.
While the alarm comes programmed, is simple to use and works straight out of the box, Hunter and Lake Macquarie residents have the advantage of being able to visit the Toronto office for a demonstration.
Live Life Alarms Sales Manager Bianca Karl said some customers could initially be nervous about needing an alarm.
“But, as soon as they see how small, lightweight and easy it is to use, they realise that it is going to give them a great deal of independence and peace of mind,” she said.
Live Life Alarms is a proud member of the local community and encourages Hunter residents to come and visit its new office at 4/7 Pemell Street, Toronto (located above Woolworths and next to the library). Call 1800 936 774 to make an appointment.
