New emergency mobile app debuted by World Wide Security

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

World Wide Security Group, is providing all customers with one mobile security app. The new app, Life Button 24 was developed in-house by security tech team members to bring assistance to anyone who feels threatened, at a press of a button, on their phones. “Life Button 24 provides personal protection to all our customers when they are on the go, away at college, in their homes or places of business. Anywhere across the U.S., 24 hours a day,” stated Ken Mara, President and CEO of World Wide Security Group, adding, “We felt this service was too valuable to charge our customers, so we decided to give it to them for free.”

World Wide Security has been providing security to homes and businesses since 1979, and now with Life Button 24, protection is extended to its most valuable asset, the customer and their families. The app features two-way voice, GPS locating when app is engaged, 24-hour monitoring, silent mode for dispatchers to listen in, video clips and photos sent to dispatchers as events unfold. “With the press of a button our customers can summon emergency assistance when and where they need it,” added Mara.

The app can be used by anyone, but is limited to one free app per family or business. Additional apps are available at discounted rates to their clients below the rates being offered to the public. Registration to customize a response for each user takes minutes and protection begins immediately. “Many of our customers have children going off to college in the fall. This is a great product for students, real estate agents, lone workers, business owners and shop owners who need to summon emergency assistance. This can be done on the one device everyone has on them at all times, their mobile phones. This is a much different service than calling 911. Many people are hesitant to call for help until it is too late. Life Button 24 can provide you assistance and connect you with or central station or 911 when a situation demands it,” explained Ken Mara.

Life Button 24 will be offered free to all customers of World Wide Security/GC Alarm and member companies of World Wide Security.
