Put your car keys beside your bed at night. If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to break-in, just press the panic button of 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 start to put away your keys, think of this: It's a security alarm system that you already have and requires no installation. It works if you park your car in the driveway or garage. Ir your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break-in your house, chances are the intruder 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 doesn't want that. This is something should really be shared with everyone. May be it could save a life or prevent a crime.

This is a good tip. Anything to deter a break-in/burglary is good. Add a good guard dog to that and that intruder ain't got a chance to cause damage or harm anyone. I wonder if the insurance companies will give a discount for that?
