More About Holdup Panic Buttons
These can be mounted in an unobtrusive location within reach to be pressed at a moment's notice. Coupled with central monitoring, these can be used to summon the authorities when there is a robbery taking place or if there is someone threatening the safety of those in the home or business.
These panic buttons are usually used for silent panic situations when users do have central station monitoring. This means that the siren will not sound when the buttons are pressed and instead will just cause the panel to communicate out to the station to let them know a burglary is taking place. You can, of course, also program most alarm systems to have an audible panic which will cause the siren to sound as well.
