Why You May Consider Car Alarms

by | Dec 28, 2014 | Auto Repair, Car Alarms

Taking proper care of your vehicle is important for the overall safety of it. This can help keep the parts and components working efficiently with one another. Between visits you will also want to check the parts of the vehicle to make sure they are in the best condition possible. You may also want to invest in a car alarm, so your vehicle can be as safe as possible at all times. This will help detour a thief from doing damage to your vehicle. You might notice a car alarm by just walking through the parking lot. Brushing up against and barely touching a vehicle with an anti theft device will trigger a loud, annoying alarm. It is a noise loud enough to make anyone jump out of their skin, catching people off guard and surprising them. Heads will turn and look in the direction of the alarm, and keep looking if the alarm does not end quickly. Naturally a person will try to get away from the vehicle as quickly as possible to avoid embarrassment or the possibility being mistook as a thief.

Alarms can Offer Benefits

There are additional benefits to have a car alarm systems installed. The various anti theft systems can be placed on the odometers, this will prevent the repairman and owner to change the mileage. The tires can have the alarms placed on them to prevent theft. The alarm can also be set off if the doors, hood, trunk, or headlights are touched. This will attract the attention of those around the vehicle because of the alarm. If you are interested in an alarm and your vehicle does not have one, make sure to bring the vehicle in. We can advise you on the options you have for a proper alarm system that will help keep your vehicle and belongings safe.

What Sets off a Car Alarm

The car alarms go off at the slightest touch. When an animal walks near the tires, a cat jumps on the car, or children playing outdoors unintentionally brush up against or touch the alarm, it goes off automatically. Sometimes both during the day and night the alarms can be heard going off several times. Complaints from neighbors, and businesses will start happening for the vehicle owners.

The Noise Disturbance

Complaints may reach deaf or unconcerned ears with our law enforcement, who find that there simply is not enough time in the day or night to respond to individual car owner alarms. Nor do they have the means in which to stop them, as oftentimes, the car owner themselves has to be the one to shut off the car. The law enforcement are busy responding to numerous commercial business alarms, all the time to prevent major business break-ins and theft. In most cases the law enforcement know that the alarm is only temporary and will cut off on their own. The alarm would be stopped before law enforcement could respond. Law enforcement will only get involved if alarm becomes a constant noise disturbance to others.
