A New Trick for YOUR Keys!


PUT YOUR CAR KEYS BESIDE YOUR BED AT NIGHT

Of course this only works if you have a car alarm system in your car, right?

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. This would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where you can't reach a phone. For the elderly...suggest that they carry their car keys outside on case they fall (perhaps around their neck on a necklace). Activating the alarm to notify someone of a problem.

Please pass this on even IF you've read it before.

It's a reminder and it might save your life....or someone you love.

  1. That would be great. Now if only we could get people to pay attention to it. I think a lot of people have learned to tune out those things.

  2. I think this is a great post...ADT only works if you can get to it...which is usually by the door. Who wants to go to the door if someone is trying to break into it? Amazing that the one person who disagrees is anonymous. LOL! I have seen this before but I have always passed it on.
