Long battery life

Long battery life

Battery life is approx. 6 months. Your Button is powered by a coin cell battery so you don’t need to charge it every day. 



The Button is great for extra security in the home and also in other indoor spaces such as supermarkets and shopping centres.



If you’re out and about, the Proximity Button can bring peace of mind. The Button works in all environments.



The Button can be worn on nightwear. Place your phone next to you whilst you sleep and if your loved one wanders in the night, your phone will alarm and wake you.

Easy to wear Small & discreet

Unlike other products on the market, the Button is a small badge that is worn discreetly and comfortably. It also acts as a warning device, rather than a tracking device, offering you peace of mind and not being too intrusive for the person in your care.


The App The Proximity app can support several Buttons at one time

The simple user interface means that it’s very easy to see if someone is out of range (approx 20 metres)

Proximity was invented due to personal experiences with wandering and knowing just how terrifying it can be when a loved one goes missing.
