1. A method for determining operation status of a monitoring system, the method comprising:
transmitting a first test command to a user attached monitor device, wherein the user attached monitor device is physically attached to an individual being monitored;
providing a second test command to a user detached monitor device, wherein the user detached monitor device is associated with the individual being monitored;
receiving a first test result in response to the first test command from the user attached monitor device;
receiving a second test result corresponding to the second test command from the user detached monitor device; and
analyzing a combination of the first test result and the second test result to determine an operation status of at least one of the user attached monitor device and the user detached monitor device.
