It’s unfortunate that recent events are showing a need for increased security initiatives. In the business world, security initiatives take resources away from handling business that will drive to company profits. Enacting additional security measures becomes more of a nuisance than a help. These security measures commonly result in an organization having to change the natural flow of operations. I do support security initiatives when they are effective while not inferring with daily operations. So, here are five reasons why I believe Usb Panic button systems are always the best option:
Traditional Panic buttons offered through alarm companies require hard wiring into your phone line. So changing your office around or moving would cause a representative to move the buttons at your cost. I can’t speak for other USB Panic Buttons Systems, but I can explain how the systems offered through CRS operate. The CRS USB Panic Button System is shipped to clients pre-programmed and ready to use. Plug the device into any workstation running CRS Notify, and it automatically works. You can change the USB panic button system to any other computer running CRS Notify at any time, and it will work.
- Rapid Notification
Unlike traditional panic buttons, the USB panic button system works with a software program installed on the computer and uses the power of the internet. I advise clients to have an incident response plan to account for seven minutes between the onset of an incident until responders arrive. Most of that time is because most traditional panic buttons take over two minutes to alert just one type of responder. In contrast, USB panic button systems using the power of the internet result in instantaneous to seconds to alert both internal and external responders.
- Alerting Methods
Unlike traditional panic buttons, USB panic button systems have multiple methods to alert multiple parties. However, traditional panic buttons only alert one responder of an emergency. How do we alert everyone else? Furthermore, USB Panic button systems can simultaneously alert multiple responders and staff using various methods. These methods include automated voice calls, text messages, phone apps, emails, and computers. USB panic button systems merge all alerting needs into one button for a prepared response.
- Location Identification
Police generally respond to initiated traditional panic buttons. However, they only receive the information that a panic button was activated, the address, and that is it. Moreover, officers do not know who initiated the panic button, their particular location, or how long ago they initiated the device. The lack of information negatively impacts a substantial response. I cannot speak for other organizations offering a USB panic button system, only CRS. CRS USB panic button systems let each user for each location to have customizable messages for each button and each user. The messages can relay a particular message to computer, text, email, and voice call recipients to the exact location and the party who initiated the alert. The details help responders pinpoint the duress location to help them effectively respond.
- Different Alert Levels
Again, I cannot speak for other USB panic button system companies; I can only talk about CRS Notify. The USB panic button systems are optional and can operate high or low-level alerts in addition to a computer mouse. Moreover, using the USB panic button system, a client can determine alert levels for each button. This means that you can have a low level alert to help mitigate a problem before it escalates. You can program the low-level alert button to alert needed responders using any method without alerting everyone. Furthermore, the low level is ideal for suspicious activity. Moreover, business managers can handle without causing any further or unneeded panic to everyone. Traditional panic buttons only have one method to one responder and are no longer competitive with technology today.
I did not write this blog to push a product. There are many other reasons why USB panic button systems triumph over traditional panic buttons. Furthermore, whether you look at CRS or another company, I ask you to refrain from traditional panic buttons. Please feel free to contact me at [email protected] if you have any questions.
