Not everyone is comfortable with using pepper spray or a stun gun for self-defense. Fortunately, there still is a way you can protect yourself without confronting an attacker directly. Personal alarms function as a type of security system for your body, and they can be highly effective at keeping you safe.
What Are Personal Alarms?
These products are small, easily carried personal security devices. When triggered, they emit a loud, unpleasant sound. The frequencies these generate can be painful to the human ear. When activated in the event of an attack, they can be a powerful deterrent in a number of ways.
For instance, the shrill sound of the alarm may be enough to send the attacker running just to get away from it. It also may attract attention from other people in the area, which can cause the criminal to think twice about attempting anything. Finally, because most of these alarms can be heard from hundreds of feet away, they may be useful in summoning help.
The majority of these devices on the market today are highly portable. Many of them are no larger than the electronic key fob used to unlock car doors. This means they are easy to attach to a purse, key ring or backpack. To activate them, simply push the button or pull the ring. There’s no need to worry about aiming them or being close to the attacker as you would with pepper sprays or stun guns.
Who Could Use Them?
The convenience and ease of use that these alarms offer make them a good choice for anyone in need of protection. Due to the fact that they don’t have to be pointed at anyone to be effective, they are specifically valuable for individuals with diminished capabilities. Senior citizens, people with disabilities and young children especially can benefit from using these devices for their safety.
Many law enforcement professionals recommend them because they could be just as effective as pepper spray or a stun gun. Some states have restrictions on those other types of products. This means alarms may be the only option available to you for keeping yourself safe. You also may be restricted from traveling with pepper spray products, so this could be your best choice for protection when you’re on the road.
