  • Improve 2-way contact
  • Prevent undiscovered deaths
  • Reduce risks of isolation
  • Regularly saves lives

OKEachDay regularly confirms the occupancy of a property and helps you have better two-way contact with older people and others with higher needs. There are three versions.


Our company founder and his grandmother – who inspired OKEachDay

The nature of contact delivered through OKEachDay is different depending on the version, e.g. housing providers use our contact to exchange information about repairs, bills and property related matters.  We also have versions for care and support organisations and private individuals. Only OKEachDay combines technology like our OKEachDay button, messaging and analytics – with skilled human contact in this way.

Coming 2024

Customers are given the choice to engage with our OKEachDay button in their own time to confirm occupancy (e.g. daily or weekly) or otherwise receive a call from a specially trained team at a chosen time, who are available 365 days a year. Contact can be customised, e.g. for housing.


The OKEachDay button
gives customers freedom to get on with their day and has several features that make it reliable. It takes 2 secs to press and that is logged in occupancy reports.

When OKEachDay is pressed we can message the device, making it easy to keep individuals or groups informed. This also encourages engagement. We can also prompt customers to engage with a ‘gentle’ reminder call or message.


Our brilliant team
will attempt to call the customer multiple times to talk and will also use customer’s own numbers.

Dialogue can be optimised for different groups, e.g. Housing – where we check property status, can exchange repairs info and perform basic surveying work. Health and support options are also available.

Contact from a specially trained team

Action can be taken if we have reason to believe a property or person is at risk, this can be tailored to meet the needs of you and your customer.


Data informed decisions
Every interaction is logged and recorded, this lets us see patterns that might indicate a customer issue.


Handover and escalation
We will contact your staff, friends and family or emergency services if we think there are critical risks.


Secure online reporting
Your team members can view our interactions with customers and use this to focus their time.

Critical facts you need to know when deploying ‘OK buttons’ and daily contact services. Good news – OKEachDay has all these covered.

Always offer human contact because relying entirely on automated tools can materially increase isolation. We have an award winning specially trained team that is simply brilliant.

Never allow customers to mark themselves ‘away’ without speaking to a human and without the right follow-up processes because doing so increases the risk of an undiscovered incident. We take real calls, ask questions and have checks in place.

Always keep an OK button totally separate to an alarm or ‘emergency’ button otherwise it increases the risk of confusion. Our OKEachDay button is always separate for this reason.

Make sure that any contact centre is trained in outbound conversational calling and the specialism you need (e.g. housing) because most are not. We are trained in several techniques and have no fixed call length limits.

Always try and have an OK button that is in sight, and in the customer’s main living area – not on a wall – if you want maximum engagement. Our devices are designed for this.

Get all your teams onboard and excited because them realising this is about empowering them will make your project more successful. We can and will train your teams.

Work with organisations that are skilled in this because its totally different to alarm receiving and requires specialised software and skills to deliver this at scale. We are the experts.

“The quality of contact from Alertacall’s team is really something, I’ve listened to their calls and they are both caring and compassionate”
