Will the dispenser work during a power outage?
Yes. The Lifeline medication dispenser has a rechargeable battery that provides up to 18 hours of backup power during a power outage. If the power has been out for 10 hours and there’s an emergency situation (such as a hurricane or snowstorm) where the power may not be restored for hours or days, please call the Support Center for assistance.
NOTE: If you have a phone system that does not operate during a power outage, the dispenser's automatic monitoring service will be disabled.
