Visonic Ltd., of Westford, Mass., has recalled its Visonic Amber SelectX Personal Emergency Response System (PERS) Kits. Following a reboot or system reset, the Amber SelectX Base Stations can fail to operate and detect an emergency signal from the personal pendant. The recalled Visonic Amber SelectX Personal Emergency Response System (PERS) kit enables a user to push a button on a pendant to signal a request for assistance. An Amber kit consists of one wireless pendant worn by the user, one Amber brand base station, generally connected to a phone line, a power supply and backup battery. Base stations are white, rectangular and measure about 9-inches wide by 7-inches deep by 2-inches high with grey emergency, call and check buttons.
Recalled models have catalog number 0-100729 and serial numbers 1612002383 through 501206949. The first four digits represent manufacture dates April 2012 through December 2012 in WWYY format. The first two digits are week of manufacturer and the second two numbers are the year of manufacture. For example serial number 2312 600299 indicates a manufacturing date of the 23rd week of 2012 or roughly June 2012. Each unit has an external label on the back of the base station, with the product name and serial number. Amber base stations previously recalled due to a different problem also had catalog number 0-100729 and serial numbers 2308600299 through 3013079617. The firm has not received any reports of incidents or injuries related to this issue.
Visonic distributors and professional alarm installation firms sold the alarms nationwide from April 2012 through April 2013 for between $220 and $240 for the kits. Consumers should immediately contact their system installer or a Visonic alarm installation professional to replace the recalled base station with a new unit. Contact Visonic at 800-223-0020 from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or online at www.visonic.com and click on North America and click on Product News under the Solutions & Products tab for more information about the recall.
