Connecting your Lifeline medical alert service

Your pendant connects to Lifeline using a wireless network, so no phone line or additional wireless equipment is required. New customers should set up the Lifeline Service using the Quick Setup Guide included with the product, and should refer to the User Manual for important information.

Before you can use your system, first ensure the button is charged and a connection has been established with Lifeline Response Center. The pendant must have sufficient cellular signal available to complete this call and to work reliably inside the home. Please see the Quick Setup Guide for instructions on how to set up your system and test the coverage range of your Help Button or follow the steps outlined below. If you have any questions, please contact Philips Lifeline or your representative.

Connecting your Lifeline service

  1. Press the help button on your GoSafe 2 mobile pendant once and follow the voice prompts when you are ready to move onto the next step.
  2. Plug the charger power cord into a power outlet; place the pendant around your neck and attach charger to the pendant.
  3. Remove your GoSafe 2 mobile pendant from the charger when prompted in order to proceed with setup.
  4. Press the help button on the pendant and wait until the first call to Lifeline is connected. This may take approximately one minute.
  5. Once complete, finish charging your pendant until the indicator light flashes steady green. This typically takes less than 45 minutes.
