Home Panic Alarms

In situations involving potential violence, adding additional home panic alarm buttons, in strategic locations throughout the home can provide added security and peace of mind. Here are some suggestions for where our personal panic buttons can be placed:

 

  1. Near Entry/Exit Points: Install panic buttons near doors and windows, where an individual may attempt to enter or exit the premises unlawfully.

  2. In Bedrooms: Place panic buttons in bedrooms, particularly if they are located on different floors of the house, to ensure quick access to help in case of an emergency.

  3. In High-Risk Areas: Identify areas of the home where there is a higher risk of confrontation or violence, such as the kitchen or living room, and install panic buttons nearby.

  4. Near Safe Rooms or Safe Zones: If your home has a designated safe room or area where you can seek refuge during a violent incident, install panic buttons in or near these locations.

  5. In Hidden or Discreet Locations: Conceal panic buttons in inconspicuous areas, such as under tables, behind furniture, or within household items like planters or decorative objects.

  6. In Hallways or Corridors: Place panic buttons along main hallways or corridors to ensure easy access from various areas of the home.

  7. Near Staircases: Install panic buttons near staircases to provide quick access to help, especially if there are multiple levels in the home.

  8. In Outbuildings or Garages: If applicable, consider installing panic buttons in outbuildings, garages, or other detached structures on the property to extend protection beyond the main residence.

  9. In Areas with Limited Visibility: Identify areas of the home with limited visibility or where you may feel particularly vulnerable, such as dark corners or blind spots, and install panic buttons in these locations.

  10. In Children’s Rooms: Ensure children have access to panic buttons in their rooms or nearby, particularly if they are old enough to understand how to use them in an emergency.

By strategically placing panic buttons in these locations, individuals can quickly and discreetly summon assistance in the event of a violent or threatening situation, enhancing overall safety and security within the home.
