How do duress alarms work?

Once the alarm is pressed, help is on its way. Advanced Security Group customers have options regarding the type of duress device, how to access it, and what they want to happen when the button is pressed.

We have varying styles to suit all applications; hard wired buttons usually installed in an inconspicuous spot, personal devices that when pressed can activate the alarm, or our latest product that will work anywhere, send real time location details of the duress alert, and allows the option of one or two-way communication.
