GE Security Offers CareGard With A KeySafe Package

Homeowners feel safe knowing their doors are locked but emergency personnel can still get to them during an emergency

Arden Hills, Minnesota - July 8, 2004 - GE Security, Residential Solutions now offers the CareGard® Home Emergency Call System with a KeySafe Package. GE KeySafe is perfect for PERS homeowners who need to keep their doors locked most of the time.


GE KeySafe is easily installed on the outside of the home and contains a spare key. In an emergency, a monitoring center operator can give emergency personnel the combination to open the KeySafe and retrieve the spare key. Homeowners feel secure knowing their doors are locked, and at ease knowing that emergency personnel can still get to them during an emergency. GE KeySafe can also be used so that family members or friends can readily get a house key when necessary.

"KeySafe is the ideal companion to any personal emergency response system, and many of our dealers (security and medical) already include it with their service," said Kate Fitzgerald GE Security Product Marketing Manager, Home Assurance. "We now offer end -users and dealers a substantial value by packaging both GE Security products together in one kit. With this combination, CareGard offers greater peace of mind to end -users."
