Car Security & Safety Information
Vehicle Security - Car Alarm Information:
Whether you want to guard against car-jacking or if you've loaded your car with the best equipment Sonic Electronix has to offer, you need to protect your investment by getting a car alarm. Not only will you have the peace of mind knowing that your vehicle and its contents are being protected, you may even find that your insurance rates will be lower!
An alarm is an electronic device that is installed in a vehicle (car, truck, boat, motorcycle) to discourage theft of the vehicle, its contents, or both. Alarms emit high-volume sounds when someone encroaches on your vehicle. Some alarms may also trigger flashing of the vehicle's lights, and others can even notify the car's owner of a break-in via a paging system. You can also find alarms that, when triggered, will interrupt various electrical circuits in order to prevent the engine from starting. Any combination of these features help to guard against vehicle theft.
Our 2-way car alarms with keyless entry include at least one keychain remote. This gives you the ability to turn your alarm on/off, and if your vehicle is equipped with power door lock motors (actuators) you can lock and unlock your doors by pressing a button. If your vehicle has a power truck motor (solenoid), you can also open your trunk with the press of a button. This remote access allows you to quickly lock your doors and arm your vehicle with the press of a button. Upon doing so, the LED lights up in your vehicle, signaling to would-be burglars that your vehicle is armed.
Besides our 2-way alarms we also sell remote car starters, which allow you to start your vehicle's engine by touching a button on your keychain remote. If you have the heater or air conditioning running before you turn off the car, the next time you use the remote start, it will automatically heat or cool your vehicle based on your previous climate settings. Some remote car starters also feature car alarms to guard against theft. Besides being a safety feature, these remote engine starters are helpful for those who are on-the-go.
A great new technological feature is the GPS Tracking system for alarms. These systems offer 24 hour monitoring. Some require you to call in if your vehicle is stolen, while others provide information regarding the vehicle's location over the internet.
We also carry digital tilt sensors, which are designed to trigger an alarm when your vehicle is lifted by a jack or tow truck. These sensors will remember the angle of the vehicle before it is armed, and will only sound the alarm if the angle is changed. This is especially helpful for protecting your rims from being stolen.
A proximity sensor, or a field disturbance sensor, is the most effective vehicle-intrusion sensor. This dual zone radar sensor uses RF field-disturbance technology to detect high-density objects in motion. These sensors are ideal for convertibles or any application where zone-intrusion protection is desired. We also sell additional motion sensors, which are usually placed in the cargo area of large trucks and vans or near the roof and side windows in a vehicle. Further, we offer glass-break sensors which trigger the alarm siren as soon as a would-be thief breaks a window.
Vehicle alarms can be difficult to install, but we're just a phone call away, ready to answer any of your installation questions. Call our friendly Technical Support department at 1-877-289-7664.
