• DYK - The First Panic Alarm was installed February 21, 1858, by Edwin Holmes of Boston, using an electromagnetic telegraph, establishing the first alarm network.
Why Panic Alarms?
Did You Know; The first electromagnetic alarm system in the world was a battery-operated gadget that used electromagnetic vibrations, transmitted to a hammer which then struck a brass bell.
American businessman, Edwin Holmes was the founder of the first company for electrical panic alarm systems in 1858, the “Holmes Electric Protection Company.” With Alexander Graham Bell’s new Telephone technology, Holmes used the New York City telephone network as an alarm control system to create the first version of a central monitoring station. Holmes became the president of the newly established Bell Phone Company in 1878… and the rest is history!
Panic buttons come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but they all serve the same purpose; they allow you to summon authorities immediately, either with a siren and warning lights, or silently, for discrete emergency notifications
