Linear Launches Fully Scalable PERS-4200 with 3G Cellular Capability, Longer Range, and More Independence

Now, "Smart" system trouble and inactive user alerts can be set along with a variety of customizable alerts, pre-recorded reminders and appointment messages

Carlsbad, CA - September 25, 2012 - Linear LLC, a leading manufacturer of Personal Emergency Reporting Systems (PERS), introduces the PERS-4200 - the next generation system that extends transmission range, expands wireless capabilities, and gives users more performance and convenience featured.


With more people living at home later in life, improvements were made to accommodate the aging-in-place population and make the PERS-4200 usable in assisted living and other care facilities. Among the advancements are an increased transmission range of 1,000' for larger lots, homes or living areas and multi-lingual software suites (English, Spanish, French). For easier monitoring and scheduling, the PERS-4200 also has improved system alerts. Now, "Smart" system trouble and inactive user alerts can be set along with a variety of customizable alerts, pre-recorded reminders and appointment messages

Systems can be further customized with add-on modules, giving systems and installations the ability to stay up-to-date with future advances in technology. Initial module releases include a plug-in 3G Cellular Module that allows the PERS-4200 to work in homes without analog phone lines.

Dealers will appreciate a number of improvements to speed set-up: turnkey programming, USB port (for local programming), real-time diagnostics, upgradable firmware and remote transmitter enrolling.

All Linear PERS and household transmitters are compatible with the new system.
