Choosing Anti-Theft Tools for Your CarOn April 26, 2018 by admin
All manufacturers of anti-theft devices are proud of their products, claiming that you will not find a better protection for your car. Listening to the opinions and conclusions of many car owners, one can hear quite contradictory points of view, like “These are all knick-knacks able just to scare away unprofessional hooligans, but nothing can stop real professionals from hijacking your car if they want it”, and like “It’s simply impossible to steal my car!”
The first group of car owners base their opinion on their own experience, because in fact, virtually all cars that have ever been stolen, were equipped with expensive and serious anti-theft devices.
The latter are guided basically by the advertising information that they receive from manufacturers and sellers, from whom they acquire the anti-theft systems.
Neither the first nor the second point of view is truly objective, as anti-theft tools do reduce the risk of hacking and hijacking the car, but, naturally, cannot give a one hundred percent guarantee of protection. Moreover, most manufacturers often exaggerate the information that they give out for advertising purposes, often overstating the real properties and capabilities of their products. That’s why when browsing kijiji autos for a car, you should also pay attention to the anti-theft systems these cars are equipped with.
When choosing anti-theft devices for a new car, you cannot focus only on their cost, since the price of a security system is formed taking into account the following indicators:
1. Advertising of security system:
2. Reliability in operation.
3. Reliability of the protection.
If you can and even need to pay for the last two characteristics, then for the first one you do not want to overpay. Excessive advertising, leads to the fact that half of the drivers of your city uses the same security system, and this in turn leads to the fact that the hijackers will soon find the keys to unlock it.
Stickers with a widespread anti-theft system will not scare the criminals, on the contrary, it can be really tempting for them, since they already know the way to hack it. At the same time, a new and unfamiliar system can stop them, because few people will want to deal with a new and unknown protection.
To our great regret, listening to advertising slogans and positive reactions of ordinary citizens, we often make a choice in favor of all known and widely advertised anti-theft system.
In addition, such “fads” of prestigious and fashionable alarms as safety for the driver, the ability to work in difficult conditions, even environmental safety, and much more, in fact are not determinative in the main task of the alarm system – protection against theft.
And therefore, if you need a real and reliable protection of the car, then you do not have to rely on different advertisements or advice from friends, but nevertheless it is necessary to study the proposed systems in detail, their characteristics and properties.
When you make a choice, you must remember these things:
1. Car security systems consist of the following: anti-theft and warning devices for drivers about theft.
2. Anti-theft means should prevent the hijacking of a car, and the means of warning must inform the owner, as well as others, of such an attempt.
3. There is not a single anti-theft device that could provide you with a hundred percent guarantee of protection your car from hijacking. As a rule, the more expensive and more difficult such anti-theft systems are, the more likely they will take more time and special knowledge and skills for hijackers to hack them.
If you look through used auto classifieds, you will see that most of the used cars are already equipped with the anti-theft systems. Before buying a used car, you should ask a previous owner to describe this system in details.
