Vehicle security, and what works best.
If an Englishman’s home is his castle, then the car is the home away from home. Many of us love our cars, and the thought of it being stolen or vandalised simply is to unthinkable to think about. As with home security, vehicle security is about adding security devices as a deterrent.
There are a certain number of security products available however, that can help keep our pride and joys, secure.
Vehicle immobiliser- This little gadget makes the car dead until a touch pad on the dash is activated by its corresponding number on your key ring, a good way of securing the car. Often this is fitted in conjunction with a car alarm, so any disturbance is registered and the car makes a howling noise, as irritating as the sound produced with nails and a blackboard.
Steering wheel immobilisers- a device is locked to the steering wheel, making the vehicle impossible to steer. This is a little more easily breached by a determined car thief, but backed up with an irritating car alarm, and the pressure mounts on the car thief who will hopefully find an easier vehicle to break into.
Car alarms- Car alarms, are fairly useless in themselves as all they do is emit a loud, often irritating noise. However, if you heard your car alarm going off you’d be out to investigate straight away. The car thief knows this, and he also knows it is a risk to take this on. This is where car alarms, become a good deterrent against vehicle crime.
