Thank you for purchasing a Cell 411 Panic Button. This bluetooth device allows you to issue emergency alerts via Cel 411 to your friends, neighbors and family members without having to unlock your phone or physically touch the device.

The Cell 411 panic button must be first paired to your smart phone via the Cell 411 app.  DO NOT pair the panic button to your smartphone via the standard iOS or Android bluetooth settings.  In order to pair your panic button, please follow the instructions below.
