Features of the alarm include:

  • GPS—if you require assistance outside of your home Red Wolf will be able to locate you
  • fall detection
  • inbuilt two-way communication with the Red Wolf service centre
  • a wireless charging pad—no need to plug in the alarm, just place it on the charging pad
