If there is an emergency you can trigger an alarm using your Panic Button. The majority of homeowners prefer to install their Panic Button in the primary bedroom, however, you can install it anywhere that you believe would be easily accessible during an emergency. We recommend adhering it to a wall so that it does not get lost or misplaced. To trigger your Panic Button press and hold the button for two seconds, and the alarm will sound. The Panic Button can trigger your alarm when the system is disarmed as well.

To install your Panic Button remove the white battery activation strip hanging from the battery compartment. Next, remove the liner of the adhesive strip attached to the Panic Button’s bracket, and adhere the Panic Button to a smooth surface. Press and hold the Panic Button for 30 seconds to ensure it is attached to the surface. If you would prefer your Panic Button to be more secure, slide the Panic Button up off of its bracket, and use the included screws to permanently attach the bracket to a surface. Once you have finished, slide the Panic Button back onto its bracket, and it is installed.
