If you don’t have monthly monitoring, can you stop use the panic button?

Monthly monitoring isn’t really in our budget. I’ve searched and do t see this answer. Is use of the panic button available for anyone or do you have to have monthly monitoring?

Hi!

That's a great question. The standalone Panic Button has two functions: The first is to trigger an immediate audible alarm, and the second is to prompt a call from the Monitoring Service (and if you're not available, they'll call the police on your behalf).

Without a subscription, you'll still be able to trigger a local alarm. But there won't be any response from an operator.

@davey_d​ Will the Panic Button still generate a push notification to the other SS users on the account if the home has the Unmonitored (free) option?

@srhome231​ yes, Panic Alarms will still generate notifications even if your system is only set up for Basic App Control.
