You are advised to test the Assure by going further away (such as the end of the garden) or to places where the signal might be poor (such as a garage or cellar).
During the test the Assure band should be worn and the base must be connected to the internet.
The test involves squeezing the band and waiting up to 5 seconds for the band to buzz, which should then be cancelled by a single button press – unless you really do want to call for help.
The band buzzing demonstrates that the message has got to the system and back (i.e. everything is working well). The lack of a buzz would mean that you might want to reposition your Assure base.
