This brilliant tip has been floating around the internet for some time, and it’s believed to have originated from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Everyone should know/see this, because it truly could save a life.
Next time you come home for the night and go to put your keys away, remember to leave them on your bedside. As long as you park in your driveway or garage, the panic button on your car key fab can act as a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, the nonstop blaring noises coming from the car are likely to cause a major distraction, waking up neighbors and bringing attention to your home. An intruder is less likely to stick around.
But this isn’t the only way your car keys can act as an alarm. Read on to hear more about this potentially lifesaving tip…
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, simply hit 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 has been floating around the internet and originally came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Think of it as a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. It will go off from nearly everywhere inside your home 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 idea would be useful for any emergency where you can’t reach a phone, such as a heart attack. Elderly people should always carry car keys with them in case they fall outside and loved ones don’t hear them. By activating the car alarm, it sends a signal that there’s a problem.
This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Please SHARE this brilliant and potentially lifesaving idea to put your car keys beside your bed at night.
