What is a Duress System?

A duress system is a security solution allowing individuals to wear pendants around their neck which they can push in an emergency to alert a base station.  Whoever is manning the base station can then send immediate help to individual who sent the alert.

Basically, anywhere that the welfare of individuals may be at risk.
