An intelligent button

August 2019 Products

Ajax continues to lead the way in wireless intrusion. Dubbed ‘The Button’ (a wireless panic button) which operates at up to 1300 metres from the hub (control panel) it is indispensable in situations where your life may be at risk. Powell Tronics has announced that it will go on sale shortly, with the device likely to hit SA shores in September 2019.

An intruder breaks into your house in the middle of the night; or a thief threatens a cashier at your store — one click of a button could save your life. You press the button and Ajax immediately transmits an alarm signal. This alerts your security monitoring company and they are dispatched.

Your family members receive emergency alerts on their smartphone. The Button is tiny and virtually weightless, and is resistant to dust and water droplets. It can be easily attached onto a surface and can be worn on the wrist or even around your neck.
