I like calling them safety button for legal reasons. Your question is a bit confusing. You say you have a wireless system in place already. Is one an alarm system tha calls the PD and you now want to alert a coworker alerted as well?
The alarm notifies the police. But that is not the objective here. All the client wants to do is to have the cashier person alert another employee to a possible situation. The other employee will then wander up to the front area for a show of presence. So my question relates to is there a panic button that the cashier can wear/carry that will alert another employee wearing the same so that they are immediately notified wherever they are in the building.
Sorry for the confusion.
Nortek Control formerly Linear, makes a supervised wireless button that will do the job. This will alert the coworker as well as central station. Additionally the system is supervised so if batteries are low or there is a problem you will know before it's too late.
If you dont care about supervision (not a good idea for "safety" buttons) there are other simpler models (garage door openers) available at Nortek.

The base can have a number of transmitters. And they sort of have bi directional comm. The receiver checks the status of the button for proximity and battery level to make sure it's all working. Speak to the mfg or read the data sheets and instructions for more detailed info. Todd
Status Solutions also has a button system that will do that. It can also provide location of the person who pressed the button down down to about 10 feet in users specified areas. The person I have dealt with there is Chris Prada 866 846 7272 x 788 or 416 677 7232
