Personal Alarms – An Effective Distraction
If you have ever watched martial arts tournaments in person or on television, you may have wondered why the combatants yelled loudly while fighting or exhibiting their forms. The reason for this is that noise can actually distract an opponent or attacker and can be a great way to bring attention to an attacker.
While noisy personal alarms should not be used as a sole method of self-defense, it can be a terrific initial distraction which will allow you to use a weapon, pepper spray or martial arts techniques. Small alarms can also be useful to help protect your personal property.
We offer alarms you can carry on your keychain, on your wrist or place on your door.
A personal alarm is a device that emits an extremely loud sound when activated. Some types of alarms are basically motion-detector devices, while others have a manual activation.
Depending on what you need the alarm for, you can use them to sound an alarm if you are attacked, or place one on a doorknob and be alerted if someone enters your room. As these products are inexpensive, easy to use and very, very loud, they make a great addition to any one's protection methods.
If you own pepper spray or a stun gun and are worried that you won't be able to use them quickly enough during an attack, the personal alarm may buy you seconds of distraction during which you can pull forth your weapon.
The noise is very high decibel and will bring attention to the situation while possibly disorientating the attacker. Again, these devices alone are not enough for self-protection in an attack but are a good way to scare off someone or get help.
If you feel that you are at risk, you should invest in as much protection as you can.
College students, in particular, can benefit from the door alarms, as these can be placed on a dorm room door and will alert you and anyone within several feet to the presence of an intruder. Since so many statistics indicate that college students – particularly female college students – face a staggering number of attacks, you can feel safe at night with this device.
Interestingly enough, the Door Knob Alarm also helps reduce instances of sleepwalking, as it is touch activated and can wake up even the soundest sleepwalker. Whatever your reasons, a personal alarm is a good tool to have.
