Pretty neat idea. Never thought of it before.
Put your car keys beside your bed at night.
Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, your
Dr's office, the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run
across. Put your car keys beside your bed at night.
If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your
house, just press the panic button for your car.The alarm will be set
off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off
or the car battery dies.
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. 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
chain. It works if you park in your driveway or garage.
If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your
house, odds are the burglar/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. This is something that
should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or a
sexual abuse crime.
P.S. I am sending this to everyone I know because I think it is
fantastic. Would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart
attack, where you can't reach a phone. A person has suggested to a spouse
might carry his or her car keys with him in case of a fall outside and
he or she doesn't hear it. They can activate the car alarm and the other
person would know there's a problem....
Please pass this on even IF you've read it before.
