We all know that having a security system is a great way to protect your business, home or school from theft and vandalism when you’re away. But what about those incidents that occur when you’re at work, school, or just relaxing at home?
Panic buttons exist to protect people from personal harm. They can provide an instant alert to the monitoring company when the user feels they are in danger and need immediate emergency assistance.
Here’s how multiple venues can benefit from a panic button.
Panic Buttons In Businesses
Violence can strike any workplace at any time. Roughly two million Americans are victims of workplace violence each year. Businesses that handle money and have public access are at higher risk of an incident occurring. Having a panic button at your business could provide your employees, along with yourself a better sense of security.
Although it may be nearly impossible to fully prevent workplace violence, a panic button paired with a security system is the most effective way to prevent an incident.
Panic Buttons In Schools
There have been many high profile school shootings over the last two decades, which has exposed the security weaknesses in our schools. School safety is one of our nation’s biggest concerns. With a panic button installed at a school, it could not only alert the police of an emergency, but it could also notify the entire campus to execute safety precautions.
Here’s more on why you need panic buttons in your school.
Panic Buttons In Your Home
A break-in can occur at any time. Usually, it happens when no one is home, but on a few occasions, it could happen when you and your family are in the house. A panic button can help protect your loved ones, from any unexpected situation.
Adding a panic button could be a very valuable addition to your security system. Ask your local Sonitrol Security representative what it takes to get one installed or give us a call to see how we can help you today!
