In the home, a panic alarm could quite literally save your life. There are panic alarm devices that have live monitoring via a speaker system and these are often used by the elderly or disable who may have fallen and cannot get to the phone to call the emergency services. These devices can help those who are in need to get the assistance they require, no matter where in the home they may be. These kind of systems work by having a remote device that is worn around the neck and in the event of an emergency, the panic button is pressed and the monitoring agent can call for assistance. If you a loved one that is elderly or disabled and living alone then this device is an absolute must.
There are other types of security panic button. Some home security alarm systems allow a code to be punched into the keypad which will automatically call the appropriate authority. Other home alarm systems have dedicated panic buttons on them to call the chosen emergency service. Many security companies are now offering wristwatch type devices or key chains that allow a remote access panic button to interact with the monitoring device. So in a panic situation, you won’t need to be in the same room as the device in order to key in the code or press the panic button.
