The Guarnic panic button App can be installed on cellphone devices with Android, Blackberry and IOS operating systems. See Downloading Panic Button App.

Note: See Activating Panic Simulation to check whether your activation has been successful. This is important for preventing the triggering of false alarms that may result in fines for your clients.

Each operating system allows for a different form of emergency activation:

Android:

  • Option 1: Notification bar.
    If you have enabled your Notifications (see Configuring Panic Button App for Android), you will have an icon in your cellphone notification bar that will be constantly present. If you click on it, a big red button will appear that will immediately activate the emergency.
  • Option 2: Application button.
    After you open the application, an Activate Emergency red button will appear, together with a 10-second countdown, allowing you to cancel the emergency in case you have activated it by accident.  If not, you can click continuously on the button in order to activate the emergency immediately.
  • Click on the power button on your cellphone as fast as you can until it starts vibrating. This will indicate the emergency activation. Note: Not applicable for all devices. It is essential that you make sure your device supports this functionality before you activate an emergency. 

Blackberry:

  • Option 1: Application button.
    Upon opening the application, an Activate Emergency will appear that will activate the emergency immediately.
  • Option2: Mute/Silence Button.
    You can activate the emergency immediately by quickly pressing the physical silence button of your cellphone.

iPhone:

  • Option 1: Application button.
    Upon opening the application, an Activate Panic button will appear together with a 5-second countdown, allowing you to cancel the emergency in case you have activated it by accident. If not, you can click on the Enable Already button to activate the emergency immediately.
    Note: iPhone does not allow for application interaction with the physical buttons of a cellphone device. It is an operating system restriction.
