Identicom Rip Alarm

What happens if my device is removed forcibly?

If a user wears an Identicom on a lanyard, if the device is removed forcibly - either as part of a threatening or abusive situation, or accidentally through a fall or trip -  then an automatic Red Alert will be triggered by Identicom's Rip Alarm.

The Rip Alarm is activated through the removal of a magnetic plug situated on the top, left hand corner of Identicom, as you look at the rear of the device.

Once activated, the Alarm Receiving centre will treat it exactly the same as any other, genuine Red Alert until proven otherwise. 

To see how to attach a lanyard to Identicom, and the correct way to insert the Rip Alarm plug, please see the short video below.

  • Please note, even if you wear Identicom without a lanyard on a belt-clip, you can benefit from the Rip Alarm feature by using a special attachment. Please ask our Customer Support team if of interest.
