Car Keys: Security Tip
Great Idea...don't know why I never thought of this!...;-) (I saw this online, and it didn't
have any credits to say where it came from.
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 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.....
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.
My Mom has suggested to my Dad that he carry his car keys with him in case he falls outside and she doesn't hear him. He can activate the car alarm and then she'll know there's a problem.
Dave added this: Another tip that a locksmith friend suggested (He saw it on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" Click Here ...Thanks Oprah) is to put your house key and your car key on opposite ends of your key rings. That way, you will be able to access these most important keys easily and more importantly, quickly.
Hope this makes sense to you!
