If you want a quick and easy way to send out a distress call during an emergency situation, consider installing a panic button. Such buttons can be programmed to send multiple security alerts to a number of recipients with just one click. You can choose to send your messages via email, text messaging, or telephone.
Today’s modern panic buttons are completely customizable. Some buttons are housed on touchpads, allowing you to program multiple buttons for different situations. They often connect to chain rings so you can add them to your key chain.
Many panic buttons come with neck straps or mounting brackets to ensure easy emergency access in a convenient location. Such buttons are like portable alarm systems you can mount by your bed or wear on your person. Most are quite user friendly, with self-testing features to ensure reliability.
