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.

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 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.

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.

This is a really cool idea. Next time you come home for the night and you go to put your keys away, think of this:

If you have a car with automatic locks, it's a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Start keeping your car keys next to your bed on the night stand when you go to bed at night.

Try yours to make sure it works before you rely on it. Just know that you must press the alarm button again to turn it off.

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!

The red panic button on our car keys is a useful safety protection when we are in our homes. I bring my car keys into my bedroom and leave them on my night stand. In an event of an emergency, I will know where my car keys are immediately.

Also, if there was an intruder in the house, I could press the panic alarm key and the car would go off which will make loud continuous noise to hopefully scare the intruder off.
