Bogus Caller Button
TASK Bogus Caller Button protects you day and night
The Bogus Caller Button provides reassurance for anyone who is cautious about answering their door to strangers or people claiming to be tradespersons. It can be used with a telecare base unit to provide protection and give peace of mind, 24 hours a day.
Crimes in which elderly people have been targeted by thieves have left many of us feeling vulnerable at home. Incidents like this are not limited to older people and can happen to anyone, particularly those living alone.
These types of crimes often involve bogus callers such as fake tradespersons. Although any one of us can be a victim, older people sometimes have more fear about this type of crime because of the greater potential impact to their mental and physical health.
To help counteract this type of crime and to reduce the associated fear of incidents such as this, our Bogus Caller Button, provides a way to ensure that people who feel vulnerable are never left to deal with a situation alone. The Bogus Caller Button can also be used in situations were someone has suffered from domestic violence and is afraid to answer the door.

How your Bogus Caller Button works
The button is located inside the front or back door of your home. Just press it before opening the door, even if you are only slightly unsure of a caller’s identity. Once activated, our trained response centre staff can listen in silently to make sure you are safe, during the day or at night. If necessary they will contact the Emergency Services or a neighbour.Meanwhile you can be sure that you or a loved one are not left to deal with the situation alone.
The Bogus Caller Button is simple to install. It links wirelessly to the telecare base unit. If you already own a telecare base unit or socially monitored alarm that is monitored by TASK, we do not charge an additional monitoring fee for the Bogus Caller Button.
