Faith-based institutions are sanctuaries and places of worship with an open, welcoming environment. However, faith institutions also encounter the same security challenges and liabilities as any other for-profit or non-profit organization.
Because places of worship are also prone to threatening, dangerous, and criminal activities, you’re obligated to protect your clergy, staff, congregation and students with a church security solution.
You need a simple, easy-to-use incident notification system for all your employees and volunteers who encounter irate, troubled or violent visitors to your facilities.
ePanic Button is a computer-based panic button system that lets anyone identify a situation early on and discreetly and rapidly summon the help and support they need. You customize your alerts according to levels of urgency – whether you just need other staff to come to your desk for back-up support, or you need someone to call 911.

ePanic Button Incident Notification System
ePanic Button is a completely customizable incident notification system with two components - a web-based administrative site hosted by ePanic Button, and a small client installed on workstations. The program is easily downloaded from the web-based administrative site and quickly installed onto your workstations within minutes.
Desktop alerts are sent and received on workstations in your local area network. Email and text messages are sent on your outgoing SMTP server. With just one click of a mouse, keystroke, or tap of a foot pedal, front line workers rapidly and discreetly send any combination of desktop alerts, email and text messages to any combination of receivers you specify.
You create your buttons, alert messages, and receiver groups on the web-based administrative site. ePanic Button lets you customize your alert messages according to levels of urgency, department, location, role – whatever you require. The web-based administrative site does not send and receive alert messages.
Small Client Installed on Workstations
Sends any combination of customized desktop alerts, email and text messages to any combination of receivers you require
Sends and receives desktop alerts peer-to-peer over you local network. Pop up alerts appear over any open program and flash with an optional audible alarm whenever an alert message arrives
Sends email and text messages through your outgoing SMTP server. They can be sent to anyone, including employees and contacts who do not have ePanic Button software installed on their workstations.
Respond feature enables receivers to confirm receipt of pop up alerts by clicking a button that stops the flashing and audible alarm and dispatches a signal to the sender, letting them know their message was seen and help is on the way
Reporting feature lets you add notes to incidents and import them to a text file
Quick installation using an ePanic .msi file
Optional foot pedal enables users to send an alert with no visible hand motion
