Security Systems and Car Alarms enhance you and your vehicle’s safety by including additional sensors that detect intrusion and prevent unauthorized driving.
Cars are expensive. Other than a house, perhaps, few purchases we make will compare to a new car. And just like any other expensive asset, a car brings with it a secondary cost — the risk of theft. In some laid-back parts of the world, locking the doors may be enough to ward off the threat. Everywhere else, it’s a good idea to arm yourself — and your car — with some security.
If you’ve purchased your car in the past 10 years, your vehicle was probably already “equipped” with a security system. So why are people still buying aftermarket security systems? Because even in this day and age, a motor vehicle is stolen in the U.S. every 45 seconds! (source)
So my factory alarm is useless?
Not necessarily. In some situations, such as in public areas, having an alarm siren is enough to scare away violators. Rather than “useless”, most factory alarms are simply limited. Wouldn’t you prefer to prevent the violation in the first place? In the event of a break-in, wouldn’t you want to be notified immediately? And along with your belongings, what if the thief attempts to drive the car off the parking lot?
