The Panic Button

The Panic Button is a unique feature that we have developed that allows elderly and vulnerable people a way to reach a lot of people at any time should they need assistance.

So basically, when this feature is setup for you or your family you get a unique address to use for your Panic button, when someone presses the panic button it notifies people who are subscribed to your list that someone is in need of assistance.

People can then notify other users on the list if they are going to respond to the call so that everyone is kept informed and upto date.


A typical use maybe as follows:-

You may live out of town, but you have an elderly relative who lives in the town but no way to get to them quickly. So you set them up with a panic button, then if they require assistance which could be for a number of reasons:-

  • They have maybe had a fall and can't really walk or get to the bathroom
  • There is anti-social behaviour going on outside and they are little concerned
  • There is possible criminal activity taking place outside and they are concerned
  • They have had a cold caller and are too uncomfortable to use the phone while they are there and have let them in the house
  • They have some other medical emergency but not necessarily a 999 emergency
  • Their pet has run away, and they are too frail to chase it
  • They have a water leak, or their power has gone off

So by pressing their panic button not only can they inform you and all family members and relatives but all neighbours in the area who are willing to help and you will get notifications of who is responding to assist and a report of how they are so everyone is kept in the loop so a hundred people don't turn up at once..!!

So, what better way to look after yourself or a member of your family knowing that with a press of a button there are lots of people ready to assist you

 *The number of people available to assist will be depicted by how many are subscribed to the panic button list for the area that the person lives.
