Car Security refers to the degree of protection measures one takes against any theft, damage or any other criminal activity. Cars and other vehicles have had always been considered as precious assets for people. Ever since vehicles came into being, and people started owning one, there had been a threat of theft and damage. Earlier vehicle owners used steering locks and brake locks to prevent theft. However, crooks soon became intelligent enough to break through those locking systems and steal the vehicle away.
Thanks to technology today; we have a variety of security systems with a number of different technical gadgets and software applications that help us keep our precious asset safe. Moreover, thanks to the e-world and the satellites, as they allow us to track out vehicle from any location, at any time with the help of our computers, palm tops or cell phones.
The most basic method of car security used commonly today is the Audio Car Alarm system. Different vendors would offer different car Alarm system, each with different features, characteristics and cost. One of the kinds is Visual Alarm. As soon as the alarming system sensors detect a threat it starts flashing vehicle's head lights and park lights. Audible alarm is also a commonly used system; loud sirens make enough noise to warn the whole vicinity.
It is common in countries with higher street crime rates, people find their vehicles damaged in the car park area.To ensure greater safety; motion detectors are a wonderful device to deploy in a vehicle. Motion detector sounds alarm as soon as it senses a movement in a predefined area. The convenience of this system is that the owner can also leave the car's window open. Motion detectors would not let the crook scratch your car even a bit.
Once securing a car was a challenge for its owner, today stealing a vehicle is a challenge for crooks. The Global Positioning System tracking system works with the help of a satellite. The satellite either takes an image of the object on the earth or it works with a Global System for Communication. A GSM module sends messages to the satellite, which forwards the message to the controlling system. The messages include its location on earth, as well its status of ignition. Even if the thief successfully breaks the vehicle's alarm system, he will not run far with it! The GPS system is also used to remotely switch the ignition off! Now, one can own a vehicle without worrying for a threat.
