The Interlogix TX-4200-01-1 is discontinued wearable panic button that operates at 319.5 MHz. You pair the device with your compatible alarm panel to a wireless zone, and then you can press the button on the device to trigger an immediate alarm if you need help. The device can be set up to trigger a police panic, a fire alarm, or an auxiliary medical alarm, depending on how you program the associated wireless zone. Overall, this is a nice panic button, and it offers some cool features. That is why we give it a 5-Star rating.
There are many positive aspects associated with the Interlogix TX-4200-01-1. For one, you can program the device to trigger the type of alarm that you want, which makes it quite versatile. The sensor is wearable, as you or your loved one can keep it on at all times as a wristband or necklace. It is also water-resistant with an IP68 rating, allowing it to be taken into the shower without any problem. It can also resist chlorine and UV rays. There is an LED light on the device to let you know when it has been successfully activated. You need to press and hold the button to activate, which helps prevent false alarms.
There are not many downsides for the Interlogix TX-4200-01-1. One obvious issue is that the device has been discontinued, so you are unlikely to find it new. Used models should still work okay though. Also, you can only program it for one zone and function. This means that you can't use the device for multiple functions, such as being used for both police panics and medical alarms. Other issues include the device's finite wireless range and the need to periodically replace its batteries. But these issues are relatively minor, and we still give the TX-4200-01-1 a 5-Star rating.
Good: Choose Alarm Type In Programming, Wearable, IP68, Resists Chlorine & UV Rays, LED Light, Prevents False Alarms
