This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator.


Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this . . . . .


It's a "Security Alarm System" that you probably already have and requires no installation.





If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get into your house, just press the panic button for your car alarm.  The alarm will be set off and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies.


Test it.  It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob.  It works if you park in your driveway or garage.


If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break in your house, odds are the burglar or rapist won't stick around. 


After a few seconds all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won't want that.


And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot.  The alarm can work the same way there.


It would also be useful for an emergency such as a heart attack where you can't reach a phone.


It was also suggested that a person carry their car keys with them when gardening and such.  In a case where they should fall outside and your family doesn't hear your call for help, you can activate the car alarm and then they will know there is a problem.


This is something that should really be shared with everyone.  It could save a life or stop a sexual abuse crime.
