After this it is time to pair with your phone via Bluetooth. This will depend on the phone you have, with instructions included the downloadable Zomm manual. With the iPhone used for testing, this was a two minute job, completed without any issues.
When receiving a call one touch of the Z-button will answer it, with 2 touches sending it to voicemail. The Zomm can also be used for outgoing calls but you have to initiate the call via your phone and transfer using the Z-button. The volume also depends on the level set via your phone.
If you press and hold the Z-button the panic alarm is activated, continuing holding it for a further six seconds on the Zomm will make an call to the emergency services (DO NOT USE UNLESS IT'S A REAL EMERGENCY). The device sends an automated message before allowing you to communicate with the operator.
