1300 885 886 Independent Living Centres Advisory Service

Fade is a mobile application designed to detect falls using the information collected by some of the sensors (such as accelerometer) on an Android smart phone. Fade has been designed for people who might at risk of falling in an isolated environment without any supervision. Fade can be configured to issue an alert message to a predefined contact after a fall detection, reporting the time and place where the accident occurred, using the device's GPS and geolocation tools. This information may be sent to the nominated contacts via SMS and/or email. Fade can also automatically dial to nominated contacts in speaker phone mode when a fall is detected.

Caution: Emergency Call Systems - NBN

The planned National Broadband Network (NBN), if built as proposed, will replace the existing fixed-line copper telecommunications network. Telephone based emergency call systems supplied by companies who are members of Personal Emergency Response Services Australia (PERSA) are expected to work correctly when connected to the NBN. Please be aware that battery back-up time on the NBN will only work for a few hours during a power failure. Please ensure that your NBN customer equipment is set-up correctly to work with your emergency call system and that the Retail Service Provider (RSP) that you have selected to provide your broadband can support that set-up. If the NBN is rolling-out in your area, call your emergency call system supplier before you sign any contract for the NBN service so they can assist you to select an RSP that is likely to support the continued operation of your emergency call system over the NBN.

Additional Specifications

Caution: Emergency Call Systems - '000'

It is important to be aware that 000 calls from automated devices (such as emergency call systems) cannot be guaranteed a response from the emergency services if they are unable to validate the condition, address and required response. It is therefore not recommended to program 000 into a non-monitored emergency call system (or autodialling system).
