One thing I have come across in this country is keysafe. A key to the 
property is in a box by the main entrance. The box is opened by means of 
a code which is made known to any carers (which is the situation where I 
came across it of a disabled parishioner living on their own) and could, 
presumably, also be made known to the emergency services dispatchers 
and/or the Life Alert people.
