Emergency response panic button guide
You can turn your existing AMCO alarm into an emergency response system, by simply adding an ‘emergency response button’ (or what are also called in the industry ‘Panic Attack Buttons’ or PABs).
Panic buttons can be used in various scenarios, depending on your needs:
- Panic attack: in the case of being attacked, you can press the button to get emergency support
- Medical emergency: if you have a medical issue and need emergency support
- Vulnerable person support: if you’re vulnerable (e.g. elderly) you can use your button to keep in contact with our monitoring station, knowing someone is always there for your needs
Different types of Emergency button
AMCO provide a number of different emergency response buttons to add to your AMCO monitored alarm. The x3 main different buttons are:
Fixed emergency buttons can be installed at various locations in your property. Most people install a button near their front door, in case someone tries to force their way into the property; shops install buttons behind the service counter.
Mobile fobs are ideal for high-risk situations, for example for elderly people or people with medical conditions who want to make sure they’re never out of reach of an emergency button.
Wrist bands are ideal for elderly or infirm people who are may be in danger of falling over or who are generally quite frail. Wristband emergency buttons mean that the individual are guaranteed to never be without their emergency button.
