Having a home security system makes it three times less likely that your home will be targeted by a potential burglar. The foremost thing you can do to protect your home is to invest in a home security system. However, there are additional features that increase your security even more. One very important feature to have on your security system is a panic alarm button. Once pressed, a panic button will alert the authorities, whether that is the police department, medical professional or fire department. Many security systems will actually have this feature already built in. Here is why it is so important for you to have a panic button.
- Immediate Help Will Always Be Sent In Seriously Dangerous Situation (Maximum Protection)
In the event of a seriously dangerous event, such as a home invasion, it may be difficult to get to the phone to be able to call 9-1-1. You might not have your phone easily accessible or your phone may be dead. The burglar may have disabled your home phone lines. As you can see, this is potentially very devastating situation to be in. A panic alarm button, however, means that with the simple press of the button, the monitoring center is contacted and help will be sent over immediately. Panic buttons also come on keychains or on your mobile phones, meaning that even if you are not necessarily near your home alarm system, you can still press this button.
Panic buttons are also helpful for senior citizens who are at an increased risk of fires and falls. Whether in the form of a necklace or a watch, they can simply press the button and help will be sent on its way in the event of an emergency. This could potentially save his or her life.
As you can see, having a panic button on your home security system may in fact save your life.
