A woman in my complex fell in her bathroom and evidently suffered a compound fracture of her leg. Unable to get to a phone, she managed to get to her purse and set off her car alarms panic button. Someone complained to the office and security was sent to her apartment.
I never thought about using the car alarm for that.

Not bad.

Unfortunately my car clicker signal thing doesn’t hit my garage. :(

Between your noisy neighbors and this, it is time to find a new place to live.

I figured out they were just redoing their carpet. Looked up to their balcony and saw carpet looking s***. And no noise as of late to speak of.

Blaring tv? car alarm?
Most car alarms reset after a while she may have had to have reactivated it.
Doubt she had her purse in the bathroom though... just closer than her phone to drag herself.
Hand rails are cheap but walk in tubs are a rip off.

lol I read that in the voice of the old lady that says exactly that sentence on their commercials...

Fairly clever of the lady, though with 1 fractured leg I'm not sure how one couldn't crawl to a phone. Perhaps she was very elderly? I also have lived in like 6 apartment complexes over my years. I'm pretty sure if I sat there yelling "HELP" for 30 min even someone would have done something about it (like at least called the cops or told the front office). She was unable to scream?
