A panic alarm is an electronic device designed to assist in alerting somebody in emergency situations where a threat to persons or property exists. A panic alarm is frequently but not always controlled by a concealed panic alarm button. These buttons can be connected to a monitoring center or locally via a silent alarm or an audible bell/siren. The alarm can be used to request emergency assistance from local security, police or emergency services. Some systems can also activate closed-circuit television to record or assess the event. Many panic alarm buttons lock on when pressed, and require a key to reset them.
In its range of panic buttons, Northwood offers the HKC double push / latching panic RF panic button, and the RF Fob which delivers a range of features from arming your system to raising a duress alarm. Both are compatible with HKC wirefree and hybrid panels.
