Supporting you is important to us, so we've pulled together some of the questions we get asked the most about Redcare products. If you can't find your answer below, don’t worry - 24/7 support is only a phone call away.

  • Yes. Any Redcare connection can be transferred at any time during the life of the connection, unless the connection has been upgraded as part of Redcare's Grade 4 Grade offer.

  • The losing ARC will not be charged, however an administration fee will be applied to the gaining ARC. Also the existing minimum rental period will continue to apply to the new ARC. For example if a connection is transferred after 4 months the remaining 8 months of the minimum rental period will be applied to the gaining ARC.

  • Redcare will not charge for a new connection as the exchange element of the service has not been altered. However a charge may be raised if a new block terminal is required at the new premises. ARC's should use the address change facility on ETS to process the order. Please note minimum rental period will not be affected by this change.

    N.B. This does not affect Secure 2, 3, IP, or Assure products.

  • Yes an administration charge will be applied as a new connection at the exchange will be required; a new block terminal may also be required. The linked contract facility on ETS should be used to ensure the appropriate charges are raised for this contract.

    Note 1: If the change occurs within the first 12 months of service the original minimum rental period will be applied to the new connection. For example if the change occurs after 4 months the remaining 8 months minimum rental shall apply to the new connection. Rental will continue to be charged on the old connection until a cease order has been received and processed.

    Note2: If this is a Redcare GSM Connection the ARC should use the "linked contract" facility on ETS to ensure that the GSM STU information is transferred to the new connection.

  • Yes, all Redcare products have a 12 month minimum rental period. If a customer decides to cease Redcare service within the first twelve months of service any outstanding rental charges will need to be met.

  • Yes. As long as the existing telephone line is used then Redcare will continue to work. However we strongly recommend that the customer seek confirmation from their new service provider that Redcare is supported.

    Please note if a customer moves to another Service Provider that does not support Redcare this will be treated as a cease, and the minimum rental period shall apply.

  • An administration charge will be made for the connection on the new line. Charges will also apply if a new block terminal 92a is required. However by using the linked contract facility the minimum rental period will be carried forwards to the new connection. Please note that rental will be charged on the original connection until it is ceased via ETS.

  • A new minimum rental period will be applied to the Redcare GSM on connection; the minimum rental period related to the Redcare Classic is not maintained.

  • The original Redcare GSM minimum rental period will be maintained. There is no new minimum rental period applied.

  • We don't have the information for the line number connected to the Redcare secure Unit. This is the responsibility of installer to make note of when doing the installation.

  • Yes, Redcare is compatible with broadband lines.

  • When ordering the Redcare Secure unit, did you specify you required a Dial Capture board with the unit? Units don't come with a dial capture board, unless requested.

  • We're unable to change pins remotely, but we are able to assist with the pin learn sequence if required.

  • You will need to speak with the ARC for the UPPING and DOWNING of STUs.

Need some ideas, or some guidance?
