Use Your Car Alarm For Your Protection
When you go to bed at night, take your car keys with you. Put your car keys on the night stand beside your bed.
If you hear a noise outside your home or if someone is trying to get into your house, then just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off and will continue to sound until you turn it off. Some cars have a timer on the alarm and it will eventually stop. Your car may have a fob chain. You will have plenty of time to call the police if needed.
Be sure to let you family and your neighbors know about this so that they will know what is going on when they wake up during the night and hear the car alarm. You already have the security alarm system on your car and nothing has to be installed. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house. Test it to see if it works from your bedroom.
Odds are that if someone is trying to break into your house or trying to steal something, they won’t stick around with the alarm sounding. After a few seconds the neighbors will be looking out their window to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won’t want that.
If you are walking to your car in a parking lot, carry your keys in your hand. The alarm could work the same way there.
Another way the car keys may be used is to help find your car in a large parking lot. I just click my lights on so that I can see where my car is parked. Last Friday night, I ate out with some friends. When I returned to my car there was another car parked adjacent to mine that was identical and another identical car parked two spaces down. I just clicked my lights on to help me easily find which car was mine.
Older people might want to keep an extra set of keys handy, in case they fall or have a medical problem. Then they can alert their neighbors that they need help. Punching the one button on the fob or keys is easier than dialing 911. This could be useful if you have an emergency where you can’t reach the phone.
Maybe this can help save a life, prevent a sexual assault, or prevent a crime.
