To all of us, the safety of our family members and relatives is vitally important. To understand how best to protect them, there are a variety of home security and personal security products to help everyone stay safe.
One such example is the use of a simple wireless house alarm with personal alert functionality. This offers an affordable way to secure a home and bring peace of mind, adding that extra layer of alert should you have relatives that may be vulnerable.
In an emergency situation, one press of the red button will ‘trigger’ the control panel. From here, the control panel uses mobile phone technology to instantly send a text message to designated numbers, to alert the relevant people of an emergency situation. Whether the alarm is triggered by the PIR, magnetic sensor or SOS button; the text message will detail which item has triggered the alarm e.g. Dad SOS, to understand the nature of the trigger. With two-way speech you can then communicate via the control panel to the person within the house.
A lady I spoke to was able to alert her grandson using the SOS button connected to the alarm when she had a fall as she couldn’t get to the phone. She told me "this simple alarm with panic button gave me peace of mind that if required I could trigger the alarm to alert my family members to an emergency and it proved to be very useful".
The SOS button is easy to use, with a loop that allows it to be easily attached to a keyring to ensure it isn’t lost. With a compact and sleek design, it won’t feel too heavy and a burden for your relative to carry
If you have vulnerable or elderly relatives who would feel more comfortable knowing in an emergency you are just one push of a button away, an SOS personal alarm button could be the solution. Take a look at the miGuard with SOS alarm system or a SOS personal alert button can be added to any other miGuard or HomeGuard alarm.
