Did you know that your car keys could save your life? That’s right, your car keys possess the power to save you in an emergency situation. That is because most cars have built-in alarm systems with a corresponding alarm button on your keyless entry remote.
For the most part, your remote will work within a few hundred feet of your car. This means that should something happen to you inside your home, if you have your keys on you, you can push the panic button to scare away a home intruder or alert neighbors that something is wrong. Generally, the alarm will not stop sounding until you turn it off or the battery dies.
This idea was shared online by Facebook user Bryan Silva, who says that he learned this do-it-yourself trick from a neighborhood watch coordinator and felt compelled to share. In his lengthy Facebook post, he points out that simply keeping your keys by your bed while you sleep could save your life.
