    I'd heard that before and it IS a great idea! I live in a rather remote area, alone, and if I hit 911 on my phone and give the cops enough time to get here, I could be robbed or dead already. If I hit the button on my remote it just might scare off the intruder. My neighbors are close enough they could hear the alarm.

    I think it's a great tip for people who have cars alarms and live in a neighborhood where neighbors would even bother to look and see what was happening. I live on a 23 wooded acre lot with no neighbors for miles. I have my own security alarm system and their names are Lexie and Louie. They are my two Miniature Pinschers and they let me know if a person is even out on the road just driving by I also have several "Attack Dog On Premise" signs in certain windows. I have never had a problem and when they bark, you would never know that they are small dogs.

    This is a great idea. I agree they are typically too sensitive and so often people don't necessarily react.......but do you think some scumbag thug is going to want to take that chance? Certainly well worth trying with tons to gain and little if anything to lose.

    A dog is also an excellent idea, although some are better than others watchdog-wise......plus it's not practical or workable for everyone.

    Wow, can you imagine living next door to a really nervous person...

    'Morning neighbour, sorry about the car alarm going off 20 times last night but I could have sworn I kept hearing a bang'

    Dogs, that's the answer I think.
    I agree.
    A few years back, we lived in a Denver suburb, right across the street from the RR track that the trains carrying coal down to the Denver power plant used. They rolled through at night at a relatively high speed, shaking the houses (and the cars)

    People moved in next door who had one of those TransAms with the T-top.
    It also had an alarm.

    The car was nearly directly under our bedroom window. Every time a train rolled through, the car alarm went off.
    This became very irritating, and like the train horn that blasted just about the time it was adjacent to our house (That is another story, altogether) we learned to ignore the damn thing.
    After a few weeks, the guy must have gotten to the point of not getting up and checking the car. Then one morning, his T-tops were missing.
    He replaced the T-tops, de-installed the alarm, and bought a dog.
