Lateral Thinking And Home Security
In their home some people attach a key to a string and hang the key behind their letter box for when they forget their key and are locked out. Obviously this is a big security "no no" but donning lateral-thinking hat, how can this be utilised as a security measure? My idea is that the string could be attached to a device that triggers an alarm - when the string is pulled the alarm sounds or alternatively, the device could contact you on your mobile. It goes without saying that no key would be attached the string. It's a safe bet that the string would only be pulled when someone is thinking of burgling your home.
