PLEASE READ AND SHARE!!!

Put your car keys beside your bed at night.
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. 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.
This may save a life!


Pass this along to family/friends! It's a great tip and could save a life!!

Good hints, especially for people who park their cars in the driveway in the front of the house and who have close neighbours. Our cars are in the locked garage half way down the property, a good 100 ft from the roadway. You would also have to climb over a 7 ft locked gate to get to the garage. I do not think anyone would try to steal the car, they would have to crash it through the gates to get it of the property. Also I do not think the car alarm thing would work from the bedroom. We do not have close neighbours who could come to our aid. But it is a good hint for people living in the close confines of a city or inner suburbs.

Couple of weeks ago I heard some loud yelling outside around 1am. Looked out to see a large group of about 20 teens hanging around one of our cars-yelling, talking, leaning on the car. I hit the panic buttons on both cars parked out there. I never saw people jump and take off so fast in my life. It works.

Thanks for the tip! I think its a good idea and could help save someone. People may or may not pay attention, but if someone was trying to rob or do harm, I should think they would pay attention. Just saying.

My car key fob doesn't have a panic button & nowadays who takes any notice of a car alarm? most people just tut & ignore them! Just saying.
None of ours have a panic button either. Car alarms seem to go off for no reason and people take little notice when they do.

I have a panic button. I used mine twice so far. But the alarm goes for about 1 minute. I had to keep pressing the button.
