My Dad has been using a Splash for 2 plus years and thankfully has not had to use it in an emergency. He tests it on occasion and a Greatcall rep would be speaking to him immediately. The app gives me and my other 2 siblings great piece of mind. He lives in a rural area and connectivity has been great and tech support super when we have had any issues. Thank you!!!
When we first got this device for my Mom it worked without any issues, lately I can't track her at all. I recently upgraded my phone and reinstalled all of my apps. The app has you signing in multiple times and will disconnect you once signed in. I normally don't complain but this is a good way for us to track her movements are out and about. I'd say since every time an app upgrades it stops it functioning.
Not too impressed. We activated it and did a test call last week and the First two days it's fine, showing home and out and about. Now for Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday it's showing no activity and my mother in law has been out and about. It does show her out and about but does not show it below on daily activities. It does show the system is on and the battery is good or when it's being recharged. The app definitely needs some work.
Do NOT get a Lively Wearable for a loved 1 thinking that you will be able to monitor everything described with this app. It DOES NOT let you see any activities or anything. Per Great Calls customer service, a Lively Wearable will only notify you when the device is activated by the wearer. In order for this app to function as described, you have to get the big, square boxy device that's $20 a month higher. Unfortunately, we made our decision based on the deceptive wording for the wearable. We'll be shopping around for a replacement.
Splash pendant. Recently, it has not been registering accurately. It will say its on the charger when it is actually on the client. It has done this on several occasions. When it's working, it's nice to be able to check on a loved one whenever you want. I like that it sends weekly updates and lets you know if there was a call for help.
For the most part it works ok, but the gps is not very accurate. Sometimes it is right on, and other times it shows that she is anywhere from a couple hundred feet to 40 miles from where she actually is. Ever since my mother's splash got upgraded, it shows her, Out and About, all the time, even when she is at home. They can not, or will not fix the problem.
