The Interlogix TX-4200-01-1 Wireless Personal Panic Device is a wearable device that allows users to immediately request for help in the event of an emergency. The center of the device features a large help button that is easy for the wearer to access in a serious situation. This device is great for elderly or disabled individuals who may experience a medical emergency at any given time. Some users also keep the device in a convenient location so that they can quickly contact the police in case of a break-in or a robbery. The device will request for police, fire or medical help depending upon its system programming settings and how the alarm company configures the dispatching settings during the alarm activation.
In its default layout, the device comes in the form of a wristband. However, the device can alternatively be set up to be worn as a pendant around the neck if desired. Either way, the sensor is typically worn at all times by the user. By using this sensor, an individual can enjoy greater independence, and their loved ones will experience peace of mind in knowing that they can call for help at any time. The device is even water-resistant with an IP68 waterproof rating. This means that it can safely be worn in the shower or kept beside a bathtub for easy access. It is also resistant to both chlorine and UV rays, ensuring that the device will remain functioning properly in a pool or at the beach.
To activate the device, press and hold the help button until the red LED lights on the side begin to flash, and then continue to hold the button until the red lights stop illuminating. By requiring the button to be pressed and held for this slightly extended period of time, false alarms are minimized. The device will function up to 375 feet away from the alarm system. Many users turn off RF supervision for the device so that they can take it with them whenever they leave the house. This can help the user get into the proper habit of wearing the device at all times.
The panic device communicates at a wireless frequency of 319.5 MHz. This makes it compatible with any Interlogix Simon Alarm System and any Qolsys Alarm System with a 319.5MHz legacy daughtercard. It uses a lithium CR1632 battery that will require replacement roughly every five years depending upon usage. The device is available in both white and black colors. The white sensor is model number TX-4200-01-1. The black version is model number TX-4200-01-2. Make sure to check the model number when purchasing based on your color preference.
