Medical alarms, autodiallers or emergency call buttons
It's important to register your medical alarm (monitored and unmonitored), autodialler or emergency call button with nbn's Medical Alarm Register.
Your registration on nbn’s Medical Alarm Register helps nbn identify households where support may be needed to help minimise a break in service before switching to a phone or internet service over the nbn™ access network.
