Panic and Man-Down Alarms: If a worker needs assistance or medical attention, pressing the panic button activates the audible and visual alarms letting others in the area know that the worker needs help. If a worker fails to move and acknowledge an alert within a preset period, the man-down alarm is activated letting anyone in the area know that the user is in distress.
