Keep Car Panic Button Handy

For protection at home, especially if you live alone. Check the distance from different areas in the house where the panic button on the car remote will set off the car alarm. Having the car remote close by in case of an intruder, especially during the night, might prove to be a life saver.

That is a very good tip. I live about 40 miles from Dallas/Ft. Worth so I get all the metroplex news. About 3 or 4 years ago, a lady had been shopping at one of the malls and as she was going to her car she was attacked. She didn't know if the intent was to rob her, rape her, carjack her, or whatever. But she had her keys in her hand and pressed the button for the horn. The attacker fled but was caught by people alerted by her horn. Since then, I always make sure I have my keys in my hand before I actually get to the car. I also keep them near me when I'm in the house. Better safe than sorry.
