Protect your vehicle and valuables

Why buy a car security system? It’s unsafe? Are you worried about your car has been stolen? Protecting yourself and your family, as well as your vehicle and your car stereo are all excellent reasons to invest in a car security system. Additionally, most insurance companies offer lowered rates for vehicles equipped with an alarm — it'll pay for itself! A good security system not only makes your car more difficult to steal, it also makes it easier to live with. The small remote control that you carry with your keys lets you arm and disarm the alarm, lock and unlock your doors, and maybe even zap open your trunk. How's that for convenience? The Basics If you want to think about a car alarm in its simplest form, it is nothing but one or more sensors connected to some sort of siren. The very simplest alarm would have a switch on the driver's door, and it would be wired so that if someone opened the door the siren would start wailing. You could implement this car alarm with a switch, a couple of pieces of wire and a siren. Most modern car alarm systems are much more sophisticated than this. They consist of: • An array of sensors that can include switches, pressure sensors and motion detectors • A siren, often able to create a variety of sounds so that you can pick a distinct sound for your car • A radio receiver to allow wireless control from a key fob • An auxiliary battery so that the alarm can operate even if the main battery gets disconnected • A computer control unit that monitors everything and sounds the alarm -- the "brain" of the system How a typical security system works When you leave the car, push the button that arms your system. You hear your doors lock, and a siren chirp tells you your vehicle is protected. If you've accidentally left a door ajar, the system alerts you with a different sound. When you walk away, you feel confident, assured. The first thing a thief sees when he approaches your car is a flashing LED that tells him your system is armed. Often, that's enough to make him look elsewhere. If the thief tries to tamper with your vehicle, he'll get a warning chirp or a full siren blast. The security system "brain" decides which sort of warning to give based on the severity of the tampering and the type of sensors the thief trips. When you return to your car, use the remote to disarm the system and unlock your doors or pop open the trunk. You can even use the remote to sound the siren if you can't find your car or if someone is bothering you. Which system is best for you? That really depends on your own specific needs. For example, if you have a deluxe sedan, you might want to add an alarm with automatic door lock activation for security reasons, and a remote trunk release for convenience. If you have a large van, you may want to consider adding an alarm with a microwave motion sensor to protect the entire van interior. How to Install Car Security Generally speaking, the install method of car security system will be detailed in the product manual, and the basic works installation is following: For a Smooth Installation, Prepare!
