This might not be exciting news but it IS news to me. Yes, put your car keys beside your bed at night. Here’s why;
If you hear a noise outside your house or apartment or someone trying to get into your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will go off, and the horn will continue to blare until you turn it off (or the car battery dies)
This tip comes from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think about this: It’s a security alarm system that you already have that requires no installation. Test it –during the day. (I did.) It will go off from most everywhere inside your house. Odds are the thief won’t stick around with a car horn blaring.
Also, remember to carry your keys in your hand when walking to your car in a parking garage or lot. The alarm can work the same way there. Maybe his could save a life or prevent a molestation or worse. This can be useful for any emergency, like a heart attack for an older person, when they can’t reach a phone.
