    Home security idea

    What to take to bed with you - not a joke


    (Pretty neat idea... Never thought of it before.)



    ..
    PUT YOUR CAR KEYS BESIDE YOUR BED AT NIGHT! Why? Read on........

    Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, etc.

    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.

    no one pays attention to vehicle security alarms here, they go off all the time by accident.

    some cars are highly sensitive, you can't bypass the car in your driveway or it goes off.

    My own neighbors sons car is like that....how annoying it is to hear his alarm at 5am when my bedroom window is open.

    and in large malls here or even Wal-Mart, people press the panic key to find their car.


    between that noise and everyone locking their car automatically, no one pays attention.



    I still like my 3 signs 'BEWARE OF DOG,' cost me 10.00 and it works.

    I don't think we have 'panic' buttons on our keys here, must be an american thing. Even if we did no one would take any notice as no one looks when a car alarm goes off anyway. They are nothing but a noise nuisance here and most new cars are fitted with immobilisers instead of alarms.

    I guess you have to live in the U.S. to get this idea. Your car is in the garage, you are in bed, you hear what you think is someone in your house or garage and you press your car key auto alarm WHICH YOU HAVE ON YOUR NIGHT STAND, it's three AM , the alarm goes off, scares away potential threat. You are not at the Mall, or a parking lot, or the beach. GET IT???

    They now have alarms, instead of an alarm going off, it barks...its a real dog barking.

    and their cheap.

    I just can't see me with one, every time is barks, the cats would go nutso!,

    I get the idea Lon, we just don't have this magic button you speak of

    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.

    Betty is correct, we do not have the function you speak of, just an arm and disarm alarm and immobiliser.
    Never heard of such a thing but a great idea all the same.

    must be a Canadian thing eh?

    panic buttons are great when you can't remember where you parked your car.
