What is a panic pendant and how does it work?

A panic pendant is a small, portable, battery-operated device that ensures the user always has access to the help they need during an emergency situation, such as a break-in or debilitating fall. Available as part of a comprehensive home security system, the user simply pushes the button located on the pendant when they need help.

A signal is sent to the base unit, and a monitoring professional from the home security company will contact the user to determine if they need assistance and what kind. The monitoring professional will immediately notify the appropriate personnel, such as the fire department, emergency medical personnel or law enforcement. An LED flashes to assure the user that their request for help was successfully transmitted.

At SafeWise, we know that an emergency is always unforeseen. That's one reason we believe an investment into a panic pendant is a priceless one.

Most models can be conveniently worn around the neck, carried in a pocket, or clipped to a belt. Often, panic "pendants" can also be worn as a watch or carried as a keychain. Some of the most popular panic buttons are waterproof. Because a majority of home accidents occur in the bathtub, SafeWise believes selecting a waterproof device is an especially smart move. Depending on the manufacturer, panic pendants can work up to a few hundred feet from the base unit-giving the user the freedom they deserve.

If you live alone, or are worried about getting the help you need when you need it, SafeWise encourages you to take advantage of the comfort and security a panic pendant offers. If you care for an elderly loved one, giving them a panic pendant will provide both of you with peace of mind.
