REVIEWS

Allen D Benge
I examined the lively for over a year before purchasing. I am a huge fan of john w and I previously had another brand alert device I was not happy with. I had one hiccup with my unit. but customer service was very helpful.
Beverly Terry
Simple to use. Has all the features that I use without confusing apps. Very good customer service.
E Sue Brown
Live the lively mobile. Freedom and safety I desire at 75. Very fast response times- far better than s previous company I had. Monthly cost gulf of previous company. Only improvement would be a car charger for the LIVELY.
