What are Personal Duress Systems?

Personal duress systems help keep staff working in high threat environments safe. A Personal Protection Device (PPD) is activated by a button push, pull-pin, or man-down (device tilt) event, sending a signal to a network of sensor units concealed throughout the building. The location, status, and identity of the PPD appears on a map-based display in the control room so an appropriate response can be initiated.

Why Personal Duress?

Personal duress systems provide a simple and effective way to keep employees safe. Each battery-powered PPD is individually identified and the system can be configured to display user names or other information in the control room.
