The City of Luxembourg first introduced its Téléalarme in-home security system in 1987. The system is designed to provide help for users in distress and enables those that use it to independently enjoy a high quality of life on a day-to-day basis. Both senior citizens and those with special needs (such as those with reduced mobility or suffering with a chronic condition, for example) living within the City of Luxembourg can register for the service and take advantage of everything that it offers. This specially designed solution will help users maintain their independence both within their home and when out and about thanks to a button that can be pressed to place an emergency call to the Service incendie et ambulance (fire and ambulance services) in the event of an emergency. The system is available in a number of different models and with various accessories in order to best meet the needs of the individual.
