Car Alarm

For a very large number of people, the word "car alarm" is strongly associated with reliable protection against vehicle theft. There are cases when the owner installed on his car two, or even three, alarm - well, so surely not stolen! But is it reliable anti-theft vehicle?

Unfortunately no. After all, the work of car alarms - "signal", ie just tell you what happened to your car trouble. Uncover and prevent criminal can not steal a car, no alarm. Moreover, if you are far enough away from your machine, you can simply do not hear it, "cries for help".

Several car alarm can correct the situation with a pager. In this case, no matter where you are, you'll learn about the trouble. But you have time to prevent theft? There is another point.

You should not make life easier for the hijackers, leaving the car stickers, advertising model your alarm. This information will greatly simplify and speed up their work - because knowing what you're dealing with is much easier to get around all the "obstacles". Do you want it?

He will not "scream" and "call for help", and peace and quiet will do the trick - not allow the thief to leave your car. More precisely, the go-go car. ... Yes, that's only a short walk.

The most convenient to assume, of course, the remote system - the device will turn off automatically, to "feel" that is approaching the key.

 ways to protect cars from theft

Satellite security system

Perhaps today it is one of the most effective devices to protect your car against theft. How it works "miracle of technology"? The machine sets up a special unit that receives satellite signals with information about the whereabouts of the car - its coordinates. Then these signals are sent to standby security department. There they are processed, and the information on the movement of the machine is delivered to the nearest traffic police patrol.

And that's not all. For example, in an attack on a car, the owner can simply click a button and the system will alarm. In the cabin can join audio and video. Some car owners refuse to install a satellite anti-theft system, fearing that so would violate their right to privacy. After all, very few people want to see its location could be so easy to install. However, these fears were groundless. "Calculating" coordinate begins only when the car entered illegally.

The truth is, this system disadvantages. The first - is its price. The system and its installation on the machine is quite expensive. Besides, for her service you will have to pay a regular monthly fee. But if your car brand ranked first in the ranking of "most favorite car thieves", it is possible that the installation of such a system would be a good solution. Another drawback is that sometimes even satellite protection does not help to find the car. For example, if you hide it in the garage.

Mechanical anti-theft systems

Mechanical methods of protection against theft of car no less popular than electronic. Practice shows that the need to overcome the "protective threshold" stops most of the hijackers. All the mechanical anti-theft tools can be divided into six groups.

The group first. Lock checkpoint. It is a kind of lock, securely locking the moving parts of a transmission. As a result, a car can not move at all or is possible, but in reverse. Clamps gearbox are besshtyrevye and pin. Besshtyrevye considered easier to handle - in order to "force" them to work enough turning of a special key.

Group Two. Clamps steering. This unit captures the steering wheel of the car in a certain position. As a consequence, it becomes impossible to operate the machine. There are three main types of bollards - easily removable, flush mounting, and lock slot. Perhaps the most reliable of them - is locking lock.

Group Three. Clamps doors. This is an electromechanical device pins which pass through the rack and the door of the car body. The owner runs it using the key fob. The objective of such a lock - not to allow an attacker to get into the interior of the car. And, as a rule, it is triggered. The only problem is that the security device is that if, in order to get into the car, the thief decides to break the glass, then this lock will not stop him.

Group Four. Clamps for brake system. This device is driven by a single turn of the key. When the first pressing the brake or clutch pedal, a special mechanism is activated and the vehicle wheels are locked, and the clutch is depressed. Hijackers there is nothing left but to leave the car. Lock braking system - not a cheap device. Therefore, it is advisable to install it to frequently stolen or expensive cars.

Group Five. Wheel locks. This is a fairly efficient device which protects the car against theft. The problem is that these blockers is not easy to remove even the owner of the car. Wheel locks can be divided into three types of "traps", "crab" and the devices mounted on the wheels. The most reliable but also the most difficult - to 10 kilograms - "traps."

Group Six. Clamps hood. Pick the lock of a cowl, a criminal can easily turn off the alarm. Therefore, trying to crack them often enough. This lock will not allow the thief to get to the electronic engine control unit. Professionally installed blocker can save you from this problem.
