Button Technology Explained

Button Technology Explained


The Button App provides an alternative to the traditional button push at pedestrian crossing boxes. Over 10% of the UK population (6.5 Million) have mobility impairments that could result in an inability to press or even find pedestrian crossing boxes and cross safely. The Button app allows the user to press the pedestrian crossing button with their phones. This prepares the user to find the safest place to cross.


  • Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)

    The Button app uses BLE technology to allow users a simple communication between phone and pedestrian crossing box.

  • Cost Effective

    The cost of installation and maintenance is less than the initial installation of the crossing itself. For more on costing please “Contact Us”.

  • Getting People Moving

    The benefits of the Button app extend far beyond road safety. It allows those with mobility impairments to explore and interact with their community.
