Smart Button and Alyssa's Law Compliance in New Jersey


K-12 Panic Alarm for Schools

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.
