Attack the senses: You can use sound as an effective security device

Thursday, July 25, 2019 by

When talking about self-defense, a lot of people think of guns and martial arts. Indeed, these are just some of the many ways to fend off a potential attacker, but have you ever considered taking a page from Mother Nature’s playbook and using sound to protect yourself?

At first glance, the idea of using sound might seem unnecessary; after all, a loaded gun beats any foreboding sound any time. But when it’s used correctly, it can be damaging and even cause great harm – making it a powerful asset in keeping your home secure. (h/t to TheOrganicPrepper.com)

Annoying but super effective

It’s no secret that certain sounds can elicit a reaction in humans. The sound of a knife scratching the surface of a bottle is considered to be the most annoying sound, according to a study published in The Journal of Neuroscience. In contrast, the sound of applause ranks highest among the most pleasant noises.

It’s a different story when it comes to animals – studies show that certain species use sound to escape pray, call out a mate, and even pinpoint a location. Some animals even use sound as an effective deterrent – just think of how tiny dogs bark to “annoy” a person or critter into leaving them alone.

In a similar vein, you could get a high-pitched sound alarm to throw hooligans and other would-be thugs off their game.

One of the most reasonably priced deterrents is high-pitched alarms. It’s so effective that it’s getting a lot of flak, with people calling the sound “annoying” and “incessant.” In England, a couple who installed this alarm in their house to get local children to stop harassing them caused an uproar in the community, with their neighbors saying that the sound makes their children “physically sick” from the alternating high-frequency tone emitted by the device. (Related: Self defense is a ‘Divine Right’ says Mike Adams in new video documentary.)

That’s why it’s a great addition to your home security system. A well-placed alarm isn’t just a nuisance. It can physically impair your potential robber. Multiple studies show that being exposed to blaring noises like that of an alarm can cause a person to lose focus. Worse, it can even lead to brain inflammation, a weakened immune system, and long-term hearing loss.

When setting up your alarm system, the key is putting it in an excellent location for maximum impact. Placing it in your yard is a great way to ensure that the alarm covers more ground.

You can also put it in rooms where you don’t want prying eyes – and sticky fingers – to linger. Some great places to install your alarm are in fake air vents or in a well-designed concealed system. In the off chance that your aggressor tries deactivating the alarm, set up a “dummy” switch in plain sight while making sure he never finds the other two switches.

To throw them off even more, place a tiny sign that reads “You’re on camera!” or something similar – it really goes a long way.

Pair it with self-defense

Preppers, of course, don’t just stop with making sure that the system works, given that people can be resourceful even in a situation as stressful as that.

If the would-be assailant does slip in, prepare to greet him with the skills you’ve learned as a prepper.
