Personal alarms also referred to as assault alarms, are perfect for people who work in a vulnerable environment, during the night, or for staff who always work alone. No one should have to feel threatened or exposed at work, and therefore the assault arm is connected to the alarm center, which directly contacts the police. If something happens, help is a push away!
When you press the alarm button, an alarm is sent with information about where you are and who you are to the alarm center. Meanwhile, a voice call is switched on, and the operator can hear what is happening and how the situation is. When the event can be followed, the operator can ensure that you get the help you need.
The personal alarm is also equipped with a timer alarm function, which means that after a predetermined time, the unit automatically alarms itself if the user is not able to alarm in case he or she has fainted, for example. Even if the personal alarm ends up in a position that it is not supposed to be in a lying position, it will also be sent an alarm. If the mode is not acute, the user can use the so-called Call Button button. When you press the button, the assault alarm dials a pre-configured number.

What is a personal alarm?
A personal alarm is used to be able to call for help in a threatening situation quickly. There are different types of personal alarms, depending on what the person needs.

When do you use a personal alarm?
Personal alarms are used when the threat picture is high, and the risk is great that a dangerous situation may arise where emergency assistance may be needed.

Who uses personal alarms?
Personal alarms can help anyone who feels they are in a threatening situation. But it is most common to use personal alarms in occupational groups with a larger threat picture and have the requirement to use personal alarms. The most common occupational groups that need greater security are, for example, shop staff, security guards, parking guards, healthcare professionals, and some single workers as electricians.
How does a personal alarm work?
Before the personal alarm begins to be used, it is configured to work as you wish. For example, this can be that you want it connected to the alarm center or how the different sensors should work.
When a threatening situation arises, press the alarm button, and the information is sent directly to the alarm center, who sees who you are and where you are. The alarm center will also switch on voice calls so that they can hear what is happening and how the situation develops via the microphone. The operator listens to the event and makes sure to send the appropriate assistance that the situation requires. Other information, such as illnesses, contact persons, and signaling, can be submitted to the alarm center in advance to take appropriate measures.
