CheckMate eALERT

A Simple and Discreet Employee Emergency Alert System

CheckMate eALERT is a panic button software solution, providing a set of emergency buttons that are added to a computer’s taskbar. By clicking on an eALERT icon, a distress alarm will be sent to ProTELEC’s 24/7 Monitoring Centre where live, professionally trained staff respond to each emergency 

In the event of a risky interaction, robbery or other uncomfortable situation, employees can discreetly signal for help by clicking on an icon. For panic button software integration with point-of-sale systems, the panic alarm icon can also be programmed to perform additional actions to improve employee safety during dangerous situations.

Our emergency digital panic buttons are safer than traditional hold-up alarms, which can put staff at risk when reaching for a physical button. Whether your employees are at risk of experiencing a hold-up or robbery situation, medical emergency, or other workplace threat to personal safety, there’s an eALERT button that can help.

Specific Panic Buttons for Specific Scenarios

More than one eALERT button can be installed on a computer or point-of-sale system to enable the triggering of different silent alarms and emergency signals with appropriate response protocols configured for each digital panic button.

Cash Drawer Hold-up

Works with point-of-sale software systems at registers, integrating directly with the digital touchscreen interface. In a robbery situation, by tapping the Cash Drawer icon a cashier can simultaneously open the cash drawer and generate a silent hold-up alarm. Police are immediately dispatched by our trained Emergency Monitoring operators. 


Employees who could find themselves at risk of verbal and/or physical abuse from their clients often need a way to discretely signal for help. If an employee clicks the duress button ProTELEC responds by notifying management and/or other employees onsite. Our trained emergency operators can also dispatch police.


Useful in business, education, and healthcare environments where there is always the risk of someone needing urgent medical attention. ProTELEC directly contacts the employee who generated the medical alarm to see if an ambulance should be dispatched.


Pressing this button will notify onsite employees that the worker who pressed this button are in need of assistance. ProTELEC contacts the employee who generated the alarm or notifies other employees to come to that person’s aid.

Hold & Secure and Lockdown buttons

These will generate a customized response from ProTELEC, determined an education facility’s administration based on their unique needs.

For the safety of the person triggering the silent alarm, there is no audible response when the panic button is clicked. The alarm includes the computer location and computer user’s name if the computer is not shared with other users.
