With rising cases of harm against women, this local company decided to help women protect themselves better with these personal safety alarms. This tiny alarm system acts not only as a deterrent, but also as a way of catching attention from any passer-by.
The Pocket Angel device can be clipped onto your wallet, keys, or bag. Just pull off the tab to trigger a loud 130dB alarm when faced with danger. According to the description, it's as loud as an ambulance siren and is audible from as far as 182m.

If you're walking alone in your condominium's carpark or entering your house, having a pepper spray on hand or attached to your bag can be useful for self-defence purposes.
