There are many people that I know who have burglar alarms in their house, but few people take the time to think about security systems in their cars. Either they buy an automobile with a car alarm system built-in, or they never get around to installing one. Both of these ideas are bad. Some car alarm systems, you see, are better than others.
A vehicle with a defective car security system is often worse than one with no car alarm at all. I know. I have witnessed effective car alarms firsthand. One of the cars I drove, for example, used to have a car alarm system that was no good. It would go off all the time on its own. I would be driving down the road, and suddenly the lights would start flashing and the horn would start honking. It was terrible. It was so expensive to get removed that I couldn’t do it. I hated that car alarm system with a passion.
One of the things that car alarm reviews sometimes leave out is that a car alarm system by itself is not worth very much. Just because it makes noise and causes the lights to flash doesn’t mean it will do anything to increase security. Some car alarm systems are very easily bypassed, and only provide you a feeling of security without any actual security. You see, most people don’t really listen when they hear car alarms going off. Even cops assume that a car alarm system is more likely to be malfunctioning than actually indicating a real burglary in progress.
Fortunately, any decent new car alarm system will do more than just beep and flash. Some of them can really make it impossible for anyone to start the car without the proper code. Other ones go one step further. The newest innovation in car alarm systems is to have them track the car by GPS. That way, no matter what happens to a car, the cops can find it very quickly. If you have a car with this kind of car alarm system, the thieves will probably know about it. Most criminals are either too incompetent to circumvent this kind of car alarm system or else too smart to try to steal a car with it. Either way, you will protect the security of your car. These kinds of systems are recommended by all of the car alarm reviews, as well as by most police forces.
