Community Alarm

Community alarm system provided by Edinburgh City Council

What does it do?

How alarm systems work

We can fit your home with an alarm system, including pull cords, a movement sensor and smoke alarms.

If any of the alarms go off, it sends an alert to the service. They contact you or your family and friends to make sure you are safe and take any action that is needed to help you. This service is on hand 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

With your permission, we will hold a key to your house that is kept in a locked safe and will only be used to respond to an emergency.

Who it is for?

Older and disabled people living in Edinburgh
