The Smart Button® is an instant panic button app that fully complies with New Jersey's Alyssa's Law without using "old-school" physical hardware methods. New Jersey is the first state to pass Alyssa's Law, requiring schools to implement instant panic buttons that are directly linked to local law enforcement by December 1, 2019.
Alyssa's Law was named after 14-year-old Alyssa Alhadeff, who was tragically killed in the 2018 Parkland School Shooting. Her mother, Lori Alhadeff, has taken swift action in pushing the initiative to have schools adopt instant panic buttons to heighten schools' preparedness and emergency response times, with the goal of saving as many lives as possible.
Smart Button® technology connects schools, triage team(s) and law enforcement in real-time during a crisis situation. The Smart Button® mobile and desktop panic button apps are made available to administrators, faculty/staff and law enforcement, which strengthens and shortens response times to a crisis in comparison to traditional 911 methods.
Organizations can use the Smart Button® system for drill exercises as a component of emergency response preparations for different situations.
In a crisis situation, school districts or schools can sharing information together on their computers, phones and/or forward incidents to law enforcement for immediate action.To view our full products page click here.
