When we are speaking with clients at Prestige Car Audio & Marine, the topic of vehicle security systems will often come up. And, like clockwork, when we bring up the topic as a good idea for someone’s vehicle, we hear “But my vehicle came with a factory alarm.” It is true that car makers include basic security systems for free in most modern vehicles, but the reality is that this gives most people a sense of false hope.
We have been installing some of the finest vehicle security systems in New Orleans for 25 years, and we believe these are great investments for our clients. Let’s explore some facts.
Factory Alarms Are Easy To Defeat
Many factory alarm systems can be disabled by hitting the unlock switch, or turning on the ignition. A thief can disable your alarm simply by breaking your window and hitting the door-unlock switch. This won’t happen with a security system from Prestige Car Audio & Marine. If you have armed one of our systems, neither the door-lock switch nor turning on the ignition will disable it.
Society Is Desensitized To Horn Honking
Who listens to a honking horn anymore? We all know someone who uses the panic function of their car’s factory alarm system to help them locate their vehicle. The sad reality is that we hear that sound so often that we don’t pay it any mind. With one of our systems, if you hear a car alarm going off, you know you are at least going to glance over and see if anyone is tampering with it.
Impact And Tilt Sensors Provide Much More Security
Our systems come with impact sensors and tilt sensors. Again, on most vehicles, you can break the window and the vehicle sits there, completely quiet. Our systems would go off from the impact of someone breaking the glass. Our optional tilt sensor is even better. Imagine someone wants to steal your wheels, or tow your vehicle away. Our tilt sensor can sense the vehicle moving as little as three inches and will set off the alarm, scaring off most crime before it happens.
Two Way Communication For Alerts Via Remote
We have systems with two-way communication capability so you know if someone is messing with your vehicle. Imagine being are out for dinner when someone messes with your vehicle. Our two-way systems will give an alert on the remote control so you know to go check on it.
Internet-Based Security For Protection Anywhere
The latest technology is Internet-based security, where your smartphone or computer can let you know the real-time status of your vehicle. You can be in a different state when someone breaks into your vehicle and you will still get an alert, so you call the local police and tell them what is happening. If you have optional tracking, you can give them your login information and the ability to track the vehicle at their end, helping to guarantee recovery.
