I been thinking about getting an alert system since im home alone. My service dog can be trained to press the button if i have a seizure and need help. He alerts to some seizures and barks if im down longer than 5min or goes and find the nearest person

i think it is not the dog, its the family. you have to get a meeting and tell them this dog is a seizure dog. if the dog barks, you need to listen and respond.
I have an app on my Apple Watch that SUPPOSEDLY will alert anyone you program it to with a message of your choosing and I believe can alert emergency services or activate the watch’s SOS beacon when you have a seizure. Honestly I’ve never used it though as I don’t know how accurately it detects seizures. (I assume it senses the motion of convulsions and rapid elevation of heart rate)
I had one with a push button alert I wore on a necklace. Every time I bent down to put something in a lower cabinet it would call the station "alerting" and got very annoying. I started just hanging it on a doorknob. Then decided it was a waste of money. My service dog was better. I would just keep my cellphone on me and speed dial my wife if I woke up on the floor.
I would dicuss about getting a medical alert system if things are going the way your saying. I'd also get a meeting with your family & Dr. about what's going on.
