    Excellent idea and easy to implement.

    The same utility can be had with the house alarm, too. Most have a "panic/help" type feature.

    Some compaines sell universal infrared remotes. That would work for this.

    Sounds like a good idea. But, I just tried it and it didn't work. My batteries are new. I just think there are to many walls to go through.

    Great idea.

    I know a few Christmas past, I was at the Walmart. Lines were long and I was watching others. I saw two less than honest looking guys casing the lines. One line over was a eldery lady buying a cart full of things and paying with cash. They noticed too. As I was just getting a couple of things, I was walking out behind her. The two thugs were right on her tail. I was too far away to alert her, but the thugs were picking up speed toward her. They were right behind my car...so I hit the alarm.

    They ran like the thiefs they were. She never knew how close she came. Those car alarms DO come in handy.

    First time I read this was when I joined USCCA for a year. I feel rather ignorant of not thinking of it on my own. What a simple way to warn or distract...

    Wow, that's really one of those, "Duh, why didn't I think of that things." Good thinking!

    My CPL instructor mentioned the same thing in our class. I keep mine in the nightstand gun safe, along with the .45 and a good flashlight.
    It's all part of the big picture.

    I was confused. What is needed is an infrared extender. It uses radio waves to extend the range.
