    A friend sent this to me so I thought I'd share it with you all. It's a great home security tip!!



    Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents your Dr office, the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run across.

    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 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 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 is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or a sexual abuse crime.

    PS. I am sending this to everyone I know because I think it is fantastic. Would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where you can't reach a phone.

    That is a wonderful idea my only problem is my car doesn't have an alarm.For people who do that is smart!

    I am sure there are lots of cars out there that do not have alarms... but for the ones who do, this would work very well. My car does have one.

    Also if anyone lives in a more isolated or rural area it may not work so well.

    But heck it's an idea I never would have thought of...who know's, it just might save someone someday.

    You might want to post this on the chit chat board so more people will know about this. Clever.
