The Unexpected Advantages of Owning a Personal Alarm

Personal alarms are used in personal and home security and they are one of the more popular self-defense options next to pepper spray or stun guns. People who choose a personal alarm will usually combine this device with another self-defense weapon or they were forced to go for an alarm because nothing else is legal in their area. Either way, today we will talk about all the different functions that a simple alarm can provide you with and in which situations you can use it.

 It should be noted that there are a lot of different alarm types of personal security alarms that one can use for personal protection. You can choose something that can help you at home and while you are traveling somewhere, either to work, or into another country. If you are, for example, going to Europe, you will not be able to bring your pepper spray, Taser C2 or any other self-defense weapon. However, it is perfectly legal and acceptable for you to bring a whistle alarm or a door stomp siren.

 The personal alarms that I would personally recommend are keychain alarms. A device such as this allows you to carry the alarm with you on your keychain. That makes it always ready and available for your use. There are many different alarms you can put on your keychain which include whistles and other various types. All you have to do is press the alarm button if you feel you are in danger and it will activate the alarm. If the pin attached to the keychain is pulled off then it will also activate the alarm system. These are very tiny devices that look like a normal keychain trinket but put off a siren like sound as loud as a car alarm.

 The door stop alarms are designed to block doors from being opened or broken into. If someone tries to use a specific door then the alarm will sound. The way it works is that the door stop is placed inside of the bottom of the door to act as a door stop. When someone tries to open the door it places pressure on the alarm and causes it to sound off. When the person shuts the door and removes the pressure of the door stop the alarm shuts off. These work great as a door jam and when someone is trying to enter into a room they should not be. This could save your life if you live at home alone and you place one in front of all of the doors of your home. 

 You can also purchase personal protection alarms that can be hung on a door. All you have to do is set the chain to pull out when someone opens the door. When this happens the alarm will sound and you will know someone has entered. The door alarms are ideal to take with you when you are traveling and staying in a hotel. All you have to do is pull the metal chain out of the alarm and it will sound of very loudly. Some door alarms are motion activated. When you hang the door alarm on the inside door knob it will activate an ear piercing sound as soon as it is moved by someone trying to open the door.
