Security Innovations For Your Vehicle

In the last thirty years, the world has seen many technological advances that make our lives more convenient, easier and even safer. Innovations in security, from home alarm systems to vehicle tracking devices allow us to protect our assets more thoroughly and greatly reduce our risk of experiencing theft. Here we will discuss new locking systems, alarm innovations, and vehicle tracking options that can help to keep your vehicle safe in the simplest ways possible. 

High Tech Locks And Other Security Devices For Your Vehicle:keys

  • Remote control locks- At this point, the majority of the vehicle have a remote control locking option. With the click of a button, you can lock or unlock the car as well as arm the alarm system. Additionally, there are remotes now that reach further than ever so you can arm you can from long distances and even enable the panic alarm to sound if you suspect suspicious activity near your vehicle.
  • Transponder chips- These chips can be placed inside keys, fobs, or remotes and keep your car safe through a signal communication system. Cars are equipped with a chip that prevents the engine from starting if the transponder chip is not present in the vehicle, making it nearly impossible for someone to operate the vehicle through hot-wiring or copied keys.
  • Tracking devices- Tracking devices can be placed in the car in discreet places where a thief would not readily find it. The work by tracking the car's movement with signals sent to towers, similar to a cell phone. If someone steals your car, you are able to locate it because you or a supporting company has access to the tracking information.
  • Automated assistance programs- There are various kinds of programs now that allow you to call a company directly from your vehicle enable your vehicle to send monitoring information to the company in the case of an accident. The company is notified of suspicious activity with the vehicle and can try to contact you. If you do not respond, they can call for help and contact emergency services. This program not only keeps your vehicle safe but you and your family too.
  • Coded start- These programs require a code to be entered before the engine can start. 
  • Alarm systems- You can customize the alarm system that is right for your particular vehicle. Some alarms can sound when the doors or windows are opened, and some sound if someone tries to start the car with the wrong key. Some even sound when there is pressure put on any part of the car, which is likely the greatest deterrent to theft.
  • Immobilizers- These devices make it difficult to hot-wire the car, but also give you the capability to shut down the car's engine in the case of theft. These usually work with a company that monitors the car through the immobilizer system and contacts you in the event of suspicious activity with your car. With the technology installed in your car, they can locate and shut down the vehicle so it can be retrieved.
  • Additional signal devices- These are objects outside of the transponder chip system that prevents your car from being started unless a certain signal is present. The idea is that your car wouldn't start with just the keys, there would be additional key attachments or cards you can carry in your wallet that is required to be in the car before it will start.
  • Video monitoring systems- Cameras can be installed in your car to record what happens inside and around your car. 

Smartphone integration

Applications on your phone let you know if the alarm is going off, and can give you the ability to track the car. These applications can give you access to the immobilizer in your vehicle and your video monitoring system if you have one installed. There are even some systems now that can notify you of the car's oil pressure, battery life, or certain problems that the vehicle may be experiencing.
