Panic Button or "Trigger Alarm" button on app

I know this has been suggested numerous times and I think it is a great idea so wanted to add my suggestion as well - hopefully we can see it in an update soon. We need to be able to trigger the alarm from the app at the very least and I think an actual panic button option that alerts authorities with full alarm as well would be beneficial in case you are locked in your room and cannot access the keypad when an intruder comes. I'm surprised this has not been implemented yet - hope it gets worked into the app very soon!

Great product so far - works like a charm - very happy except for the above!

The number of times I have accidentally tapped the wrong button on an app...  I would hope that they would make something like this so that it could not be triggered accidentally.  Maybe make it so that it has to be tapped more than once or something like that.  I'd probably stop using the app if something like this was in easy reach.

My parents can't even answer their phone half the time.  While this would be a useful feature for some, it would be a complete disaster for many others.

I think there's a lot that could be added to the app!
