Before you can use your system, your Communicator must be properly
set up, and the coverage range of your Help Button must be determined.
Please see the Quick Setup Guide for instructions on how to set up your
system and test the coverage range of your Help Button. If you have any
questions, please contact Philips Lifeline or your representative.
Responders and People to Notify
What is a “Responder”?
As a Lifeline subscriber, you should have designated people who have
agreed to be “Responders.” These are people whom Lifeline should call
in an emergency, when appropriate. Examples include: neighbors, friends,
relatives, your current nursing aide, etc.
Choosing a Responder
It is best to choose a Responder who:
• Has a key to your home or knows where one is located (perhaps in
a key lockbox)
• Could come to help you at different times of the day or night
• Lives or works within 10 minutes of where you live
• Has a phone, preferably a cell phone
• Ideally has a driver’s license and access to a vehicle
If you are using the GoSafe System, choose a Responder who can also:
• Drive to your location, whether you are at home or away from home,
and provide help if needed

Information Lifeline needs about Responders
Please ensure that Lifeline has the following information about each
person acting as a Responder:
• Whether or not the Responder has a key to your home
It’s very important that you keep your Responders and their contact
information up to date. Remember to contact Lifeline if one of your
Responders is no longer able to assist you or if they get a new
telephone number.
Please contact Lifeline for any questions about selecting or being a
Responder.
Who are “People to Notify”?
If you call for help, Lifeline will contact the “People to Notify” to let
them know that you received assistance. “People to Notify” will not be
contacted to help you, unless they are also on your list of “Responders.”
Calling for help inside your home
1. Press the Help Button that you wear or the gray Help button on the
top of your Home Communicator. You can press either button, but
you do not need to press both. The Home Communicator will beep
and dial the Lifeline Response Center.
Note: The Response Center is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
A trained Personal Response Associate is always available to assist you.

Please wait.
2. The Home Communicator calls the Response Center. When it dials
the Response Center, the Home Communicator will repeatedly say:
“Your Help Call is in progress; please wait.” Once it connects with the
Response Center, it will say: “Your call has been connected; Lifeline will
be right with you.”
3. The Response Center will answer the call. A Response Associate
will speak to you through the Home Communicator’s built-in speaker
and hear you through the Home Communicator’s highly sensitive
microphone. He/she will ask if you need help. If you do not need help,
just tell the Response Associate that help is not needed.
Note: If you cannot speak or be heard, the Response Associate will try
calling you back. If you cannot answer or if the Response Associate cannot
hear you, Lifeline will contact your Responders or emergency services.
4. The Response Center will assess the situation. If help is needed,
the Response Associate will contact your list of Responders (i.e., a
caregiver, neighbor, loved one) or emergency services in accordance
with your request.

6. Once Lifeline confirms that you have been assisted, a Response
Associate will contact the “People to Notify” you’ve designated,
letting them know you needed and received help.
eb

5. Once your Responder or the emergency service arrives, they should
press your Help Button to let Lifeline know that help has arrived. The
Response Associate will contact the household to confirm that you
received the help that you needed.
Note: If you accidentally press your Help Button, a Response Associate
will respond to your call and ask if you need help. Just tell them that it
was pressed accidentally and that you do not need assistance. Don’t be
concerned that you are bothering Lifeline; we just want to be sure that
you are alright.
Signal Range
Caution
Please see the Quick Setup Guide located in the box for instructions on
how to set up your system and test the range of your Help Button. The
Communicator must be properly set up, and the coverage area of the
Help Button must be tested prior to use. The Help Button is a radio
frequency (RF) device that transmits a signal to a compatible Lifeline
Communicator.
Your Help Button and Home Communicator provide coverage inside
your home and may provide coverage in the area immediately outside (in
the yard, etc.). If you live in an apartment building or condominium, you
may have coverage in areas immediately outside your apartment (e.g., the
hallway, stairway, or another floor of the building). A Signal Range Test is
required to determine which areas are covered. Be sure to thoroughly
test the coverage range of the system in all areas of your home.
10
The signal range may be affected by environmental factors, including
building materials, large masses covering the Help Button (i.e. a person
falling on top of it) and submersion in liquid.

A Signal Range Test will determine your coverage range, which is the
distance you can move away from your Home Communicator and still
call for help. If you press your Help Button outside of your apartment,
but still within the range of the Home Communicator, help will be sent to
the location of the Home Communicator (i.e., your apartment).
Note: If you have the GoSafe Mobile Button you can call for help outside
the range of your Home Communicator when the AT&T Wireless
network is available. Help will be sent to your location. Please refer to
page 35 for further information.
Signal Range Test
You should conduct a Signal Range Test during installation, and if you
move your Home Communicator to a different location in your home.
1. Make sure that your Home Communicator is ON and that you have
your Help Button in hand.
2. PRESS and HOLD DOWN the Message button. The Home
Communicator will beep and announce: “Continue to hold the
Message button for AutoLearn. When you are ready for Range Test,
please release the Message button.”
3. Release the Message button. The Home Communicator will announce:
“Please press the flashing orange Message button after you have
completed the range test. Begin Signal Range Test.”
4. Press your Help Button. The Home Communicator will beep and play
a voice message and the light on your Help Button will flash green to
indicate that the Home Communicator has received the signal.
11
w
6. Once you have tested different locations in your home and
immediately outside your home, return to the Home Communicator
and press the flashing orange Message button.
eb
si
te
5. Move to other parts of your home and press your Help Button again.
Listen for the beep and check to see if the green light is flashing.

HomeSafe System and GoSafe
Mobile System Communicators
– General Information
Safety information regarding the
Home Communicator
1. The Home Communicator must be
placed in an indoor living area. Please
keep in mind that sunlight may make it
difficult to see the status lights.
2. Make sure that you do not plug your Home Communicator into a
power outlet that is controlled by a wall switch because someone
could accidentally turn off the wall switch and shut off the power to
your Home Communicator.
3. Do not place anything on top of the Home Communicator. The Help
button and the Message button must always be visible and accessible.
4. The Home Communicator contains a speaker and microphone. Take
care not to block these, since doing so will make it difficult for you to
communicate with Lifeline.
5. Make sure your Home Communicator is away from any clutter or
any object that might block its ability to receive a signal from the Help
Button. The Home Communicator should not be placed on or near
your refrigerator or any type of metal cabinet or bookcase, since this
may limit the overall range of the system.
6. To reduce the risk of electrical shock or fire, do not place the Home
Communicator in or near water or other liquids.
13
w
Cleaning
eb
si
te
7. Never carry the Home Communicator by the cord or yank on the
cord to disconnect the plug from a power outlet. Instead, grasp the
plug and pull to disconnect. Periodically inspect electrical cords and
cables for damage or signs of wear.

Keep the Home Communicator free of dust by wiping it with a soft
cotton cloth. If additional cleaning is required, follow the steps below:
1. Move the power switch on the back of the Home Communicator to
the OFF position and unplug the power cord from the power outlet.
If you have the Landline Communicator, unplug the telephone cord
from the wall jack.
Warning
Always unplug the Communicator from the power outlet before cleaning
to prevent electric shocks.
Note: You cannot call for help while the Home Communicator is off.
Accordingly, you may wish to have a family member or caregiver present
while you are cleaning your Home Communicator.
2. Slightly dampen a soft cloth with a mild soap and water and gently
wipe the surfaces clean. Do not use detergent or abrasive cleaners
on your Home Communicator.
3. Reconnect the power cord to the power outlet. If you have the
Landline Communicator, reconnect the telephone cord to the wall
jack, and then move the power switch on the back of the Home
Communicator to the ON position.
4. Test your system by pressing your Help Button. Tell the Response
Associate that you are just testing your equipment after cleaning it
and no help is needed.

Caution
Never allow water or other liquids to enter the product, since these may
cause electrical short-circuits or metal corrosion. Do not spray water or
cleaners directly on your Home Communicator. Excessive moisture could
get inside the Home Communicator and cause damage.
Your Home Communicator uses a factory-installed battery for back up.
If you lose power, the backup battery begins to work automatically. The
Communicator will send an alarm to the Lifeline Response Center to
indicate that the Communicator is using its backup battery. The backup
battery can last for up to 30 hours, depending on the battery age and
environmental conditions.
If your Communicator battery needs to be replaced, a silent signal will
be sent to Lifeline, and Lifeline or your representative will contact you
to arrange for a replacement.

1. If you have multiple phones in your home, and any of them are
left off the hook, the Home Communicator will not be able to
place a Help Call. This problem can be addressed by plugging the
Home Communicator phone cord into an RJ31X/CA38A type jack,
sometimes referred to as a “line seizure jack”, on your main phone line.
Contact your phone company for further assistance with this option.
If (and only if) there is only one phone jack in your home, there is
an RJ31X jack in the Home Communicator that is designed to seize
the line if installed properly. Please refer to the Customer Premises
Equipment and Wiring diagram on page 44 in the Safety and Regulatory
Compliance section.
2. This product cannot be used on party lines/shared service lines.
3. If you have DSL Internet service, you will need to install a DSL filter
between your phone jack and the Home Communicator. Contact your
phone company to obtain a DSL filter or purchase one from a local
electronics store.
Warning
Using telephone services provided via the internet, broadband, VoIP, or
any other nontraditional telephone service presents additional risks for
non-transmission of signals from the Equipment, and the Equipment may
not operate as intended. Contact Lifeline if you have questions in this
regard. If your landline phone service is deemed not compatible with
the 7000L, a 7000C Wireless Communicator may possibly be used to
provide Lifeline service.

1. The strength of the wireless signal may be stronger in some areas of
your home than others. When you set up your Home Communicator,
look at the signal strength indicator on the back of the Home
Communicator. The number of green bars that are glowing indicate the
signal strength; the more bars you see, the stronger the signal. Place
your Home Communicator in a location where you spend the majority
of your time, and the signal strength indicator shows two or more bars.
2. If the AT&T wireless network experiences an outage or the Home
Communicator loses its signal, the Message button on top of the
Home Communicator will flash and it will not be able to send a
Help Call to Lifeline. If you press your Button and the AT&T wireless
network is not available, you will hear a message saying: “Your call
cannot be connected. There is no signal strength. Move your Home
Communicator to a different location.” Try moving the Home
Communicator to a different location in your home. Once the signal
is restored, you will hear a message saying: “Connection has been
restored.” Your Help Call will then be dialed.

HomeSafe System and GoSafe
Mobile System Help Buttons –
General Information
The information in this section applies to all types of wearable Help
Buttons.
Compatible Home Communicators
The HomeSafe Personal Help Button, the HomeSafe AutoAlert Button,
and the GoSafe Mobile Button are compatible only with the following
Philips Lifeline Home Communicators:
• Landline Communicator (7000L)
• Wireless Communicator (7000C)
Setting up a replacement Help Button
If you receive a replacement Help Button, you will need to set it up to
work with your Home Communicator. You’ll need to be within arm’s
reach of the Home Communicator to set up your replacement Help
Button.
If more than one Help Button is used in your home, gather them all for
this process. You will need to reprogram all of them, even if you are only
replacing one of them.
1. Make sure that your Home Communicator is ON and that you have
your replacement Help Button in hand.

2. PRESS and HOLD DOWN the
Message button on the Home
Communicator. The Home
Communicator will beep and
announce: “Continue to hold the
Message button for AutoLearn. When
you are ready for Range Test, please
release the Message button.”
Do not release the Message button until you get to Step 4.
3. Continue to hold down the Message button on your Home
Communicator. With your other hand, press the wearable Help Button.
You will hear a long beep and a voice message saying: “Your Lifeline Help
Button is now auto-learned and ready to use.” The Communicator will
also announce the four large digits that appear on the back of your Help
Button. This will indicate that the Help Button is working with the Home
Communicator. If the AutoLearn process fails, please contact Philips
Lifeline or your representative.
4. Repeat step 3 to reprogram all the other Help Buttons in your home.
Then, release the Message button on the Home Communicator. The
Home Communicator will announce: “Please press the flashing Message
button after you have completed the range test. Begin Signal Range
Test.”
5. Press your Help Button. The Home Communicator will beep and the
light on your Help Button will flash green to indicate that the Home
Communicator has received the signal.
6. Move to other parts of your home and press your Help Button again.
Listen for the beep and check to see if the green light on the Button
is flashing.

7. Once you have tested different locations in your home and
immediately outside your home, return to the Home Communicator
and press the flashing orange Message button.
1. Wash your wrist strap or adjustable neck cord with a mild liquid
dishwashing detergent.
2. Wash the Help Button under warm running water. You may also
gently wipe it with an isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol wipe or a cotton pad
moistened with alcohol. However, do not soak it in alcohol.
3. Blot excess moisture with a towel and allow the Help Button to finish
air-drying while you’re wearing it.

simply tell the Personal Response Associate
that you accidentally 8235
pressed

Warnings
• Any cord worn around the neck can pose a strangulation risk, including
the possibility of death and serious injuries. This may be of more
concern to wearers in wheelchairs, using walkers, using beds with guard
rails, or who might encounter other protruding objects upon which the
cord can become tangled.
• Philips Lifeline neck cords contain a special fuse (see
image on right) designed to break away under certain
8235
conditions to reduce the remote risk of strangulation.
If this fuse breaks apart, contact Philips Lifeline or your
representative for a replacement, as the fuse cannot
be repaired or re-used.

• Do not use any neck cord other than the one provided by Philips
Lifeline or your representative. Other neck cords may not provide the
feature to break apart therefore increasing the risk of strangulation.
w
eb
si
te
• Do not tie a knot in your neck cord since this may prevent the break
away feature from working properly.

properly. Do not discard the Help Button in the trash or expose it to
flames or intense heat.
• The Help Button is not suitable for use in the presence of flammable
mixtures.
• Do not put your Help Button through the dishwasher, clothes washer
or dryer. Please be sure to remove your Help Button from articles of
clothing that are being dry-cleaned.

Button on the dashboard of your car or on a windowsill that receives
direct sunlight. Likewise, do not wear your Help Button into a hot tub
or sauna. Normal bathing and showering temperatures WILL NOT
damage your Help Button.
Caution
• Your Help Button may interfere with certain medical equipment, such
as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), X-ray machines, as well as metal
detectors.

The HomeSafe Personal Help Button has a non-rechargeable battery that
can only be replaced at the factory. The HomeSafe Personal Help Button
will send a low battery signal to Lifeline when there are approximately 30
days of battery life remaining. Lifeline or your representative will contact
you to arrange for a replacement.
Recommended usage
• Wear your Help Button in your home at all times, especially while
sleeping and bathing. The bathroom is a place where people often fall
and need help.
• Your Help Button is waterproof (IPX7, 1 meter for 30 minutes) and
should be worn in the shower or bath.
• Your Help Button does not contain a microphone, so you don’t talk
into it. Instead, press the Help Button and speak in the direction of your
Home Communicator.
• You may continue to wear your Help Button when you leave your home.
However, the Help Button will not provide coverage outside of the range
determined by the Signal Range Test.
• If you are traveling on an airplane and need to bring your HomeSafe
System with you, do not take it into the cabin of the airplane. Instead,
pack the Help Button in your checked luggage along, with your Home
Communicator. Please remember to contact Lifeline before moving the
HomeSafe System to a new address.

False “fall detected” alarms may occasionally occur
While the AutoAlert Help Button is designed to have very few false
alarms, it might occasionally trigger a fall detected alarm when there was
not a fall (i.e., a false alarm). If this occurs, please simply tell the Response
Associate that it was a false alarm.

Note: Occasional false alarms do not indicate that the AutoAlert Help
Button is malfunctioning.
Caution
In certain situations, the HomeSafe AutoAlert Button may not detect a
fall. A gradual slide from a seated position – such as from a wheelchair –
may not register as a fall and would not be detected. If you fall and need
help, always press the Help Button if you are able to.
The vent area located on the back of the HomeSafe AutoAlert Button
is part of the fall detection sensor system and needs to remain clear of
obstructions (e.g., lint or food products). A continuous flow of water (e.g.,
a shower) hitting the vent directly may also temporarily obstruct the vent.
However, your HomeSafe AutoAlert Button is waterproof and should be
worn at all times – even when bathing or showering.
To conserve battery power for Help Calls, the sensors that are used
to detect falls will be disabled when there are approximately 7 days of
battery life remaining. During this time, the HomeSafe AutoAlert Button
will not detect falls. But, it will continue to function as a Help Button,
which you can press if you need help. See the Battery section below for
further information.

Determining your location
The GoSafe Mobile Button is designed to help identify your general
location, at or away from home. You should always tell the Personal
Response Associate your exact location if you are able to do so. If
you are unable to speak or explain your exact location, Lifeline will
still contact help to find and assist you where you are. Lifeline cannot
guarantee that your location can be determined at all times.
If your Responder or emergency services is having trouble locating
you, Lifeline will activate the audio beacon feature. This is a very loud,
siren-like noise that will come from the GoSafe Mobile Button and will
allow responders to find you more easily. Each time the audio beacon is
activated, it will sound for 5 minutes. Pressing the Button will silence the
audio beacon and will not initiate another Help Call.
What to expect when the GoSafe Mobile Button detects a fall
• A Help Call is automatically generated after approximately 30 seconds
of a fall being detected.
• If the Button detects you have gotten up within approximately 30
seconds of a fall being detected, a Help Call will not be generated.
• Do not attempt to stand if you feel unable to.
• If you think you need assistance, push your Help Button immediately
to initiate the Help Call. Pushing the Help Button generates the Help
Call immediately.
False “fall detected” alarms may occasionally occur
While the GoSafe Mobile Button is designed to have very few false
alarms, it might occasionally trigger a fall detected alarm when there was
not a fall (i.e., a false alarm). If this occurs, please simply tell the Response
Associate that it was a false alarm.
35
Note: Occasional false alarms do not indicate that the GoSafe Mobile
Button is malfunctioning.

Warning
Do not use the GoSafe Mobile Button if you have an implantable cardiac
device, such as a defibrillator or pacemaker.
Cautions
In certain situations, the GoSafe Mobile Button may not detect a fall. A
gradual slide from a seated position – such as from a wheelchair – may
not register as a fall and would not be detected. If you fall and need help,
always press the Help Button if you are able to.
The vent area located on the back of the GoSafe Mobile Button is part of
the fall detection sensor system and needs to remain clear of obstructions
(e.g., lint or food products). A continuous flow of water (e.g., a shower)
hitting the vent directly may also temporarily obstruct the vent. However,
your GoSafe Mobile Button is waterproof and should be worn at all times
– even when bathing or showering.
The GoSafe Mobile Button may interfere with certain medical equipment,
such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), X-ray machines, Automatic
External Defibrillators, cardiac monitors, insulin pumps, hearing aides, as
well as metal detectors. It may also interfere with aircraft communications.
Be sure to place your GoSafe Mobile Button in sleep mode when on an
airplane. Please see instructions for putting your GoSafe Mobile Button in
sleep mode on page 38.
The GoSafe Mobile Button can only place a Help Call when it is within the
range of the Home Communicator to which it has been programmed and/
or when the AT&T wireless network is available.

Charging the battery
Flashing orange light
= charging needed
Flashing green light
= charging in progress
When connected
to the charger, a
steady green light
= fully charged
Your GoSafe Mobile Button will chime once and the light will flash orange
whenever it needs to be charged. Typically, it will take less than 45 minutes to
charge your GoSafe Mobile Button. It is fully charged when it chimes and the
light turns to a steady green.
1. Make sure the charger is plugged into a power outlet.
2. Attach your GoSafe Mobile Button to the charger. You will hear a
chime and a voice message to acknowledge that you are charging.
3. Charge until the light turns to a steady green.
4. Remove from the charger. The green light will turn off, and the Button
is ready to use.
37
To determine if your GoSafe Mobile Button is on, shake it briefly:

Important reminders
• You should continue wearing your GoSafe Mobile Button while it is
being charged. Please be cautious not to trip on the cord.
w
• No light means that the battery is dead and needs to be charged or,
it is in sleep mode
eb
si
te
• A flashing green light means that the Button has battery power
• When you are charging your GoSafe Mobile Button while wearing it,
be sure to remove it from the charger prior to standing up. Failure to
do so may compromise the fall detection capability of your GoSafe
system.
• Do not charge your GoSafe Mobile Button while sleeping or bathing.
• Battery life varies based on activity level, time spent away from your
Home Communicator, and actual emergency use. In general, you
should charge your GoSafe Mobile Button at least once a week. It may
be helpful to pick a specific day and time to complete the charging, e.g.,
Sundays at 4pm.
Sleep mode
The GoSafe Mobile Button is a mobile device much like a cell phone.
As such, you must turn it off in the following circumstances:
• When you are traveling by airplane
• If you are returning the GoSafe Mobile Button to Lifeline
The GoSafe Button has a “sleep mode” for these situations. To put the
GoSafe Mobile Button into sleep mode, press and hold the Button for
10 seconds. It will say: “If you would like to turn off your Help Button,
please press it again.” Press again. The GoSafe Mobile Button will confirm
it is entering sleep mode by saying: “Your Help Button is now turning off.”
38
w
eb
si
te
To exit sleep mode, press the Help Button. Your Button will say: “Your
Help Button is now ready to use. If you need help, please press your Help
Button again”. The button press that takes the Button out of sleep mode
will not initiate a Help Call. If you need help in this instance, be sure to
press the Button a second time.

Caution
You will not be able to send a Help Call when the GoSafe Mobile Button
is in sleep mode. Be sure to remember to exit sleep mode as soon
as wireless/electronic device use is allowed, e.g., after the airplane has
landed.
Note: If you are returning a GoSafe Mobile Button to Philips Lifeline
for service, replacement or recycling, you must contact Lifeline before
returning the Button. Lifeline will provide you with special packaging and
instructions for return.
Recommended usage
• Press your GoSafe Mobile Button any time you need help, or in
situations/locations outside the home where you want to determine
if the AT&T wireless network is available.
• Wear your GoSafe Mobile Button at ALL times, even when you are
away from home. The GoSafe Mobile Button will send a Help Call
from any location where the AT&T wireless network is available.

• If you are outside of the signal or voice range
of your Home Communicator, you can talk
to Lifeline using the GoSafe Mobile Button’s
microphone and speaker. For best results,
hold the Button up and away from your chest
when you are speaking to Lifeline. Maintain a
minimum separation distance of 10 mm/ 0.394
inches when operating the device in the held to face configuration.
• Your Help Button is waterproof (IPX7, 1 meter for 30 minutes) and
should be worn in the shower or bath.
• Do not throw or toss the GoSafe Mobile Button onto a bed, table, or
other surface because it may accidentally send a Help Call.
• When entering and exiting your vehicle, take care to prevent the
GoSafe Mobile Button from hitting the steering wheel because it may
accidentally send a Help Call.

Communicator Alarms
Introduction
There are two types of alarms processed by the HomeSafe/GoSafe Communicator:
• High Priority – Require immediate response (by the Call Center)
w
Additionally, the Communicator also displays informational messages and confirmation alerts that
notify you of conditions that need attention but do not qualify as alarm conditions (e.g. installation
prompts).
eb
si
te
• Medium Priority – Require prompt response (by the operator/user)

s. in
g
Note: If multiple alarms occur at the same time, all alarms are processed and displayed, but the alarms
are ordered first by priority and then by occurrence, with the newest, highest priority alarms at the top of
the list. The alarm precedence is in the following order: high priority, medium priority, and informational
messages.
Note: Not all alarms are available in every mode (e.g. during installation); some alarms are modedependent.
Audible and Visual Alarm Indicators
When the device detects a High priority alarm: The Help button on the Communicator flashes red, the
device audible alarm sounds and a recorded voice message is played.
When the device detects a Medium priority alarm: The Message button on the Communicator flashes
yellow/orange. The operator must press the Message button to hear a recorded voice message describing
the alarm condition and/or what to do about the alarm condition.
Silencing Alarms
Once a High Priority alarm is detected, it cannot be silenced. Lowering the volume slider on the
Communicator will lower the volume of the voice prompts played, but the alarm messages will
still play.
Medium Priority alarms are silent until the User presses the Message button to hear what the alarm
condition is and how to act upon it. The recorded voice messages will continue to play each time the
Message button is pressed, until the alarm condition is corrected.
Resetting an Alarm
High priority alarms are normally reset by the Call Center after the alarm has been responded to.
Additionally, the Communicator may periodically poll the Call Center to see if the alarm should be reset
and does so accordingly.
Note: Powering down the Communicator during the reporting of a high priority alarm will reset the
device, but since the alarm has already been reported to the Call Center, the Call Center will likely
attempt to contact the Subscriber. If an alarm is accidentally initiated by the User, they should not turn off
the Communicator. Instead, they should wait for the Call Center to establish voice communication and
simply state that the alarm was sent accidentally.
The Communicator self-cancels certain Medium Priority alarms if the cause of the alarm is corrected,
shutting off the flashing message LED.

When the device detects a High priority alarm: The light on the Mobile Help Button flashes red, the
device audible alarm sounds and a recorded voice message is played.
When the device detects a Medium priority alarm: The light on the Mobile Help Button flashes
orange, the device may play a sound and/or a recorded voice message.
Silencing Alarms
Once a High Priority alarm is detected, it cannot be silenced.
Medium Priority alarms play a sound and possibly a recorded voice message once upon detection
of the alarm, but the light flashes until the alarm condition is corrected.
Resetting an Alarm
High Priority alarms are normally reset by the Call Center after the alarm has been responded to.
Additionally, the Mobile Help Button may periodically poll the Call Center to see if the alarm should
be reset and does so accordingly. If the alarm is not reset by the Call Center, the Mobile Help Button
will automatically reset the alarm after 30 minutes.
Note: Putting the Mobile Button to sleep during an active high priority alarm will reset the device, but a
Voice Message is played requiring the user to confirm this action. Since the alarm has already been reported
to the Call Center, they will likely attempt to contact the Subscriber. If an alarm is accidentally initiated by
the User, they should not put the Mobile Button to sleep. Instead, they should wait for the Call Center to
establish voice communication and simply state that the alarm was sent accidentally.
The Mobile Button self-cancels certain Medium Priority alarms if the cause of the alarm is corrected,
stopping the orange flashing LED.

The HomeSafe AutoAlert and GoSafe Mobile Help Buttons provide an added layer of protection
by being able to detect falls under certain conditions. This takes approximately 30 seconds to
determine that an activity that resembles a fall has occurred. An alarm signal is then sent to the
Home Communicator. If a fall is detected by the 7000MHB when outside of range of the Home
Communicator, the signal is sent directly to the Call Center via the AT&T wireless nework, if available.
Logging Alarms
All alarm events reported to the Call Center are logged by the Call Center. There are no user
accessible logs.

The FCC requires that the Communicator be connected to the nationwide telephone network
through a modular telephone jack (USOC RJ11C, RJ11W, RJ14 or RJ31X). This equipment may not
be used with coin telephone lines or party lines. Contact the state public utility commission, public
service commission or corporation commission for more information.
eb
si
te
The 7000L Home Communicator (landline) has been registered with the U.S. Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) in accordance with Part 15 and Part 68.
Notification for the Telephone Company
Upon request of your local telephone company, you are required to provide them with the following
information:
1. The “Line” to which the Communicator is connected (that is, your phone number); and
2. The Communicator’s FCC Registration Number and Ringer Equivalence Number (REN). Those
numbers are on the bottom of the Communicator. The REN is used to determine how many
devices may be connected to a telephone line.
Excessive RENs on a telephone line may result in the devices not ringing in response to an incoming
call. In most, but not all, areas, the sum of RENs should not exceed five (5.0). To be certain of the
number of devices that may be connected to a line, as determined by the total RENs, contact your
local telephone company. The REN for the Communicator is part of the product identifier that has
the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. The digits represented by ## are the REN without a decimal
point (e.g., 03 is a REN of 0.3).
Rights of the Telephone Company
If the Communicator causes harm to the telephone network, the telephone company will notify
you in advance that temporary discontinuance of service may be required. But if advance notice
isn’t practical, the telephone company will notify the customer as soon as possible. Also, you will be
advised of your right to file a complaint with the FCC if you believe it is necessary. The telephone
company may make changes in its facilities, equipment, operations or procedures that could affect the
operation of the equipment. If this happens, the telephone company will provide advance notice in
order for you to make necessary modifications to maintain uninterrupted service.
Interference Information: FCC Rules Part 15
The Communicator complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference; and (2) this device must accept
any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

The maximum separation (range) of the equipment, under open field test conditions and for
comparative purposes only, is 600 feet. This range may be significantly reduced when the equipment is
installed in a typical home. The 700MHB and 7100MHB comply to UL1635 and UL 1637 when
GoSafe are within the range of communicators.
For compliance to UL 1637 for U.S. installations only:
A clear, plastic power supply retaining strip is provided in the packaging with this system. Its purpose is
to prevent the home communicator power supply from accidentally pulling out of the AC wall outlet
under force. To use:
1. Plug the home communicator power supply into the outlet you select to power your system,
following the instructions and precautions herein.
2. Clean the wall area roughly 3” on either side of the wall outlet cover with a paper towel or cloth
and a general purpose household cleaner such as glass cleaner. Do not use furniture polish or
oil-based cleaners for this step as this cleaning is to ensure that the adhesion area is devoid of any
dirt, oil or grease that would otherwise prevent the adhesive from sticking properly.
3. Spray the cleaner on the cloth and gently wipe the target area on either side of the outlet cover as
described in step 2. Do not spray the cleaner on the wall.
4. Ensure the area you have cleaned is dry prior to proceeding to the step 5.
5. Peel the release liner from the adhesive panels on the strip and affix it across the back of the
power supply, adhering the 2 adhesive panels to the wall on each side of the power supply.

and FM radio broadcast and TV broadcast cannot be predicted theoretically
with accuracy. To assess the electromagnetic environment due to fixed RF
transmitters, an electromagnetic site survey should be considered. If the
measured field strength in the location in which the HomeSafe/GoSafe is
used exceeds the applicable RF compliance level above, the HomeSafe/
GoSafe should be observed to verify normal operation. If abnormal
performance is observed, additional measures may be necessary, such as reorienting or relocating the HomeSafe/GoSafe.
(b) Over the frequency range 150 kHz to 80 MHz, field strengths should be
less than 3 V/m.

Table 6 - Recommended Separations Distances between
Portable and Mobile RF Communications equipment and
HomeSafe/GoSafe devices
The HomeSafe/GoSafe are intended for use in the electromagnetic
environment in which radiated disturbances are controlled. The customer
or user of the HomeSafe/GoSafe can help prevent electromagnetic
interference by maintaining a minimum distance between portable and
mobile RF Communication Equipment and HomeSafe/GoSafe as
recommended below, according to the maximum output power of the
communications equipment.

For transmitters rated at a maximum output power not listed above, the
recommended separation distance d in meters (m) can be estimated
using the equation applicable to the frequency of the transmitter, where
P is the maximum output power rating of the transmitter in watts (W)
according to the transmitter manufacturer.
NOTE 1: At 80 MHz and 800 MHz, the separation distance for the
higher frequency range applies.
NOTE 2: These guidelines may not apply in all situations.
Electromagnetic propagation is affected by absorption and reflection
from structures, objects, and people.
