An audible security system that sounds when it notices a possible break-in is a car alarm. These car alarms can make a noisy disturbance which can be very annoying and a lot of the time is ignored. There are a lot more technologically sophisticated vehicle security systems that are available.
To help reduce the billion-dollars of car theft, manufacturers have developed innovative technology with two-way communication remotes to warn you when your vehicle’s engine is started and notify you why the alarm was activated. The most common options in newer car security systems include glass break sensors, a two-way communication remote and passive arming.
A noisy alarm just won’t be heard if you’re not near the car, and if you’re on vacation it could take days for you to even figure out that your car is missing. Certain types of car security systems will place an automatic call to a number you have specified (or send an urgent text) in case of a break in. Alarms that are two-stage can also tell you whether your car has just been jostled or if it is actually turned on and in motion.
If the car is in motion, then you can command the car alarm to cut power to the fuel pump, meaning the car will roll to a stop. But that may not be very helpful if your vehicle is being towed away and doesn’t need to be running. The newest generation of car security systems include GPS tracking so that you know where your car is at all times, even after it’s been stolen.
Preventing Car Jacking: Several models of vehicle security systems are now equipped with car jacking preventative mechanisms. These mechanisms allow you to turn off the supply of gas to the vehicle with the press of a button. Having this safety feature gives you options you would not otherwise have. The feature is generally activated by a switch that is near the seat belt release; when activated it shuts off the fuel supply and applies the brakes to stop the car. This features gives a person a good chance of preventing their car from being hijacked.
Often these systems will alert police in the event of a car jacking. Most systems are intended to quickly notify authorities that something is happening and can be invaluable in life-threatening situations. Approaching a car thief in the middle of stealing your vehicle can be very dangerous. It is better to let law enforcement handle the situation. Once your automatic car alarm informs you with a phone call or text message that the car is being stolen, you can notify the police, who will have a head start on catching the thief in the act.
Many Automatic Car Alarm Systems will automatically call a phone number you have programmed or send a text message to notify you of a break in. The newest generation of Car Security Systems include GPS tracking so that you know where your car is at all times, even after it’s been stolen.
