This technology was later purchased by the Telephone and Telegraphic Service in the USA and become the worlds fist monitored alarm system. Things however have moved on a bit since then. The background to PERS lies in the development of social alarms in the UK. For more than two decades under the broader umbrella of Telecare, the development of such products has been aimed at providing a communications infrastructure using technology which allows the elderly and vulnerable people live their lives independently. Typically this has been aimed at those with medical conditions whereby they may need to summon help quickly, and those with psychological needs. Originally Telecare products were used in the home, garden or institutions due to restrictions of the equipment. Telecare products are often in the form of a pendant that is wirelessly connected to a hub in the house and generally has a range of perhaps 15 metres.
