Bogus Caller Button

Enhanced Security and Peace of Mind

If you have any doubts about a caller’s identity, or if you feel at risk, press the bogus caller button, before answering to an unknown or unwanted caller. Day or night, this personal alarm button offers peace of mind and an extra level of support, ensuring you have quick access to help when needed. 

The bogus caller button is a small, discreet panic alarm device, pre-programmed with bogus caller functionality. This means a telecare user can raise an alarm if they feel uncomfortable, due to an unknown or unwanted visitor at their door. The button connects wirelessly with the telecare base unit, in a similar way as a telecare pendant alarm activates a call to the 24-hour monitoring centre when pressed. However, one key difference is that with the bogus caller button, the call to the monitoring center is answered silently, ensuring that the caller is unaware that the bogus caller alert has been triggered.

What is a Bogus Caller Button?

A bogus caller button is a discreet panic alarm placed near a door, which activates silently when pressed. It is an excellent reassurance device for anyone living alone or who is cautious about answering their door to unknown callers, or anyone they do not feel at ease with. If you have any doubts about a caller’s identity or feel at risk, you can press the bogus caller button before answering.

How Does a Bogus Caller Button Work?

The bogus caller button can be installed near the front or back door (or at both) to enable easy and discreet alarm calls to the 24-hour monitoring center. When pressed, it activates a silent call for assistance. The trained operators in the 24/7 monitoring center will listen in silently to ensure your safety. If necessary, they can contact one of your nominated contacts to check on you, or in a situation involving threats or a risk of violence, the emergency services can be contacted directly. Operators can also indicate to the bogus caller that someone is on their way to the residence.  This enhanced protection provides significant peace of mind, knowing you or your loved ones are never left to deal with an unwanted doorstep caller or bogus caller situation alone.
