When there is an emergency in your home, be it a burglar attempting to break in, a fire, or medical emergency, speed is a key factor in ensuring a positive outcome. This is especially the case when there is an individual in the residence who may be particularly vulnerable such as an elderly person, or someone with a disability. Therefore, installing a monitored alarm system with some form of panic button or device is the quickest method to ensure help is on its way as soon as possible.

How does it work?

A monitored alarm system is essentially a system that is monitored in a control room whenever an alarm is active. Then if something triggers the alarm, the control room will contact you first to determine what the situation is, and from there can connect you with the relevant authorities.

The panic button is a further level of security connected to the alarm system whereby a button or device can be placed anywhere in the home and should it be pressed, will immediately send a message to the control room, who will contact you and the police, ambulance, or fire brigade depending on the emergency. As mentioned, this option is excellent for those who are particularly vulnerable and may not be able to get to a phone as in time to stop a bad situation from turning worse.

Also, installing a monitored alarm system with a panic button may decrease your home and contents insurance premiums, as you’re less likely to have a break in, which reduces your likelihood of having to make a claim, which is an added bonus.
