SAFETY & SECURITY: PANIC BUTTON

panic buttonA panic button is an alert mechanism that allows security to hear what is happening at the caller’s location by establishing a conference call between the caller’s phone and security. Based on the sounds from the site, the security personnel will be able to glean additional insight into the situation and dispatch appropriate resources to the location.

With the press of a speed dial key on a telephone, the panic button conference starts. The source (location/ID) of the distress call appears on the system telephone display and the security officer’s phone muted.  The centralized security officer then can conference in patrol officers carrying mobile phones, administrators who need to be made aware of panic button events, and/or management and support staff who may be in the vicinity of the threat.  Or, the conference can be configured to automatically call out to patrol officers carrying mobile phones who are on-duty.


 

Immediately alert security and allow them to hear what is happening at a crisis location.
