Use Car Alarm For Home Safety

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 turn it off!

It works if you park in your driveway or garage. If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break in your house, odds are the burglar or 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.

What a terrific tip...

Had never thought of my car alarm in that way before. I certainly do now though.....

This is a great tip, but I would suggest trying this out first. Our cars can be parked outside our attached garage and I have to be outside to unlock the door. Maybe the alarm is more sensitive so it would work through doors and walls. Also, if you have a bedroom door on the opposite side of the house, it may not reach. Thanks for posting this, I'm going to try it!
