PERSONAL MONITORED ALARMS
North Offaly CDN is registered with the Senior Alert Scheme as a facilitator in the installation of Personal Monitored Alarms in the North Offaly Area.
As part of this service offered North Offaly CDN can apply for a grant where the client receives the unit for free and just pays a monitoring fee directly to the monitoring company on a yearly basis. At present your first year monitoring fee is free with a €60 yearly monitoring fee charged thereafter for those with an existing phone line.
If you do not have a phone line you can still avail of this service with the installation of a GSM unit which works like a phone line except this is topped up yearly by the monitoring company. This option costs €60 per year and is in place of a phone bill or phone line. So your first year fees would be €60 (GSM Unit only) and every year after would be €120 (GSM Unit and Monitoring Fee).
There is NO fee from North Offaly CDN in providing this service. We offer our service free of charge and the only fee applicable is the cost of the GSM unit (if applicable) and/or the monitoring fee both of which is paid direct to monitoring company.
