    I'm sorry I didn't know about this wonderful product sooner. I wear it on a chain around my neck without noticing it's there. Sleep with it on. It can instantly help if anything bad happens to me or someone nearby. I bought another one for my mother-in-law and I have recommended it to my co-workers. Set up was easy. recharging unit a breeze. Works anywhere I go. Lastly, I'm not writing this for the company, I'm writing it for those who might be hesitant. It could be the most valuable purchase of your life.

    Since this is a brand new item, I can't attest to durability or how well the item works when used; BUT it's a much better value than a home medical alert system, and has the additional benefit of being able to go with me wherever I go. Its cost (purchase and monthly service fees) and portability were the defining factors for my purchase. The peace of mind my family can have now on my behalf is worth the small investment cost. I hope never have to use it! Setup was easy, the booklets are easy to understand, and the directions easy to follow.

    Works great, easy instructions, can take this anywhere, and in a emergency they can find you. much better then big unit they use for older people for emergencies. You can wear it around your neck or on key chain then press, if you need help. Great for elderly when out and about or in their yard and they fall or something. Got one for my 82 yr old friend and my other girlfriend (74) already has one. 15.00 a month fee is reasonable for peace of mind.

    • A. Hi Malinda353, The 5Star can definitely be worn around the neck. The device was fashioned with a small open looop to allow users to insert a lanyard.

    • A. yes, weighs about 2-1/2 ounces. I got a lanyard to do just that. It keeps it out of my pockets and off my belt, if I wear one!

    • A. this device is much larger than the one Dad currently wears around his neck. I just got this, and will probably return it for that reason.

    Is there a way like a key ring or belt look we can clip it to a backpack or childs jeans? What if I sewed it into material in his jacket? Would it still work?
    by Phyxius333 2/4/2012
    6 answers
    • A. Hi Phyxius333, There is a key chain attachment and an accessory clip that is available to attach the device as needed. The device should not be obstructed by any material, so we would not recommend sewing the 5Star into a jacket.

    • A. It has a belt clip just like those on cell phones, and also has a key ring clip that can clip onto a keyring or other small holder. If a backpack loop is small enough, it would fit. Wouldn't recommend sewing it into anything - you need access to it in order to charge it and also to hear and respond to the agent when you need to call for help.
