Full Guide For Installing Car Alarm
Now, more than ever, car owners must be alert and prepared. Car thieves are constantly on the streets, looking to break into any car that is an easy target. That is why every car today must always be fully protected and secured, with an appropriate car alarm installed. While every car owner can’t be expected to be a car alarm expert, they do need to understand the basics and to know what to look for when evaluating car alarm systems and options.
What to look for in a car alarm
There are many different varieties of car alarms available for purchase. Although the siren is the heart of the system and “makes all the noise,” there are several other important elements to consider, including the following:
Sensors – There are numerous sensors located throughout the vehicle. They are connected to the siren in such a way that the siren is activated when the connection is broken, e.g. when a door, trunk, or engine hood is opened.
In addition, you may decide to install motion sensors. Motion sensors will sound the alarm/siren if someone enters your protected space, even without opening a door. This allows you to leave your car windows open or to leave the top of your convertible down and still be protected. Similarly, glass-break sensors will activate the alarm, even if the doors are not opened.
Immobilizer – A good car security system will include an immobilizing mechanism. This immobilizer locks the car hood and shuts the engine and fuel pump when the alarm is triggered.
This security feature is hidden in the car and is therefore difficult for thieves to locate. Even if the burglars realize that a car has an immobilizer, locating and disabling it will slow them down significantly.
Tracking System – This optional feature is important once your car has been stolen and will help you to recover it. A hidden transmitter will help you and police to track and identify the current location of your stolen vehicle and often allows the recovery of your stolen car within a few hours.
The car owner can be updated by the tracking system via phone, email and/or text messaging, anytime the vehicle is moved without authorization.
